KOI 172.02, also known as Nyanda, is a major colony of the Unified Hurian Federation, and the second most population of all its worlds. Home to the headquarters of the Hurian Expansionary Fleet, Nyanda is the Federation's military capital, quite odd given that Kepler-22b, the economic and political world of Huria, is the capital of a stratocratic nation instead of Nyanda. Regardless, the majority of the nation's drydocks and shipyards are located in high orbits around Nyanda, and majority of the new recruits entering active military service come from this planet. KOI 172.02 is especially important as it is charged with building the massive Huria-class dreadnoughts that form the core of every major HEF battle fleet.
KOI 172.02 is the preferred home of important Hurian military commanders and politicians, even though Kepler-22b was designated the capital of Huria in 2047. However, given the planet's proximity to Nyumbani, KOI 172.02 was chosen by many Hurian military veterans who wish enter comfortable retirement while still remaining close to the new homeworld to remain in contact with government sources in the event they are ever needed to re-enter combat service. Many of Huria's intelligence agencies are located on Nyanda, and use the planet's many resources to advance their operations on other colony worlds through known space.
