The Kiel system is a border system (former Perry Line system) to the Xi'an territory. It was discovered by a merchant marine ship under the command of Adhama Schnauss in 2514. It was named after a friend of the captain of this merchant ship. Schnauss hoped the gesture would motivate his friend to finally venture into the stars to see the system that bore his name.
Kiel's primary use was the serve as a staging area for military forces during the cold war. Out of the system's six planets only Severus (Kiel III) was terraformed to act as the military's center of operations.
It was also massively fortified and the Messer Regime pumped a lot of money into the system.
Since tensions with the Xi'an have diminished and the military presence has completely retracted, Kiel has struggled in the following years to redefine itself as a non-military system. The system had no significant population and an ageing infrastructure. Joona Tzur (elected Governor in 2903) used Severus location advantage. The planetary infrastructure with his abandoned military facilities and hangars. He successfully attracted space industry companies to the planet and invested in leisure infrastructure. Tzur also convinced the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo to host the event which boosted the tourism sector. The Senate recognized Severus in 2937. His first senator is Janna Thurville, daughter of Joona Tzur.

Severus : Kiel III
A terraformed terrestrial planet that served as the hub of operations for the system, though the planet's military status was downgraded when tensions were eased after the Messer Era. Severus had difficulty attracting settlers and businesses to this formerly fortified system, but has been enjoying a recent population boom thanks to the recent Imperial recognition. Eri City hosted the 2946 Intergalactic Aerospace Expo.
