Publius is a temperate E-Class world in the Milky Way Galaxy. The planet was the seat of the Verres Dynasty before it went on to found the Neo-Terran Intergalactic Hegemony. Currently it has a small population of mostly archeologists which are still uncovering information about the early Dynasty. A deal between the Hegemony and the Federations of United Star Systems makes the planet under joint-control of both nations.
The planet was once home to a prominent human noble family which existed around Hal Drusus, a terrifyingly charismatic and talented politician.
