Environment
The outside and western faces of Giardin are almost tropical - more-so than any other center tier Highland. The large size of the combined outside and western faces combined with the moisture laden winds from Midsea made the eary residents of G to call it Garden - later changed to Giardin. The jungle like Western face is largely wilderness. The eastern extent of the outside is where most of the population lives.
History
Because G is relatively isolated from the early settlements on A, B and C it did not see much immigration until early in the second century and mostly by people fleeing the repressive rule of the newly formed church of accession.
Before that time is was home only to a few small colonies of self-styled free-folk. Those early scattered settlers adopted a naturist life-style. The later immigrants followed the same path.
Cities and Villages
Freetown: airliner port
Flyaway: cable village to Edo
Bongo: cable village to Ilium.
Culture and Politics
Giardin is widely thought to be primarily populated by naturists who through the protective filtering effects of the engineered XK envelope can live a clothing free life-style.
Giardin has no formal governement and is functionally an anarchy. Repeated early incursions by forces. from Ilium intent on establishing allegiance to the Archbishop were met with passive resistance. Wherever the troops went there was simply no one there.
In spite of their naturist tendencies, the residents of Giardin were also very loyal to the Servo population and the famous Stonewall - the last redoubt of the servos in the Dragon War was on Giardin.
Agriculture and Industry
Primary exports are fruits and vegetables from the hundreds of small garden farms called nurseries.
