Could be a Firefly World, but it works any way
Located mid-gap between the Rim and the Outer worlds, Bangalore’s trade is mostly in radioactive fuel for the huge shipping container ships that travel between the higher-producing Outer worlds and the Rim and anywhere they might need fuel.
It also serves as a gathering point for small- to large-bulk transports to drop cargo for pickup by the huge tankers that take mega-tons of cargo to the core worlds. As a result, much of the planet is devoted to ship-yards (for repair) fueling stations (parked at the top of the three space-elevators) and refinery reactors and ore mines.
Bangalore is one of those places that is easy to get to, easy to get off of, and hard to live on. There are no natives here, just people working under contract. Its transient population is said to refresh completely every 10 years. Organized crime isn’t much of a problem, with so much cargo going in and out of Bangalore all the time, it isn’t one of the places where crime above petty theft, B&E and the occasional murder is going to happen.
Political and Bureaucratic corruption, however, is rampant. The Alliance maintains a Governor, named George Cardinal, whose job it is to see that things go smoothly for the Alliance.
