 The warm climate of Lopanga proved well suited to agriculture. ​ An eccentric but brilliant genetic engineer named Otto de Lanseur settled in Epiphyte and established an agricultural research center. His research and teachings helped to further expand Lopanga'​s agricultural output, and it soon exceeded that of Inaria. ​ Although Lopanga lacks the industrial infrastructure and manufacturing base of Inaria, the region is not poor: it is considered by many recoms to be the "​Breadbasket of Recom Space"​. The warm climate of Lopanga proved well suited to agriculture. ​ An eccentric but brilliant genetic engineer named Otto de Lanseur settled in Epiphyte and established an agricultural research center.

 +Dr. de Lanseur'​s research also led to one of the true oddities of Lopanga, the species of plant people known as [[Odontonian]]s. ​ He began with a native species of mobile, semi-sentient plants (referred to as "​trifids"​ by early settlers) and heavily modified them to create an intelligent humanoid species. ​ Odontonians do not mix much with other recoms, and tend to stay in their villages.
  
 Until recently, Lopanga Colony was merely a name rather than any sort of organized political structure. ​ The Kemetic Church, cities and villages, and nomadic tribes all largely minded their own business, while the Coalition still formally claimed to have authority over the entire planet. ​ Growing tensions between the two continents led the Coalition to impose a naval blockade, preventing starships from landing on Lopanga. ​ The various factions of Lopanga responded by banding together and forming the [[Lopanga Confederacy]]. ​ They then hired a band of space pirates, the [[Seventh Wave]], to act as their space navy and break the blockade. ​ The [[Annyrion Civil War]] ended without any shots fired, and the Coalition is no longer pressing its claim over Lopanga at this time. Until recently, Lopanga Colony was merely a name rather than any sort of organized political structure. ​ The Kemetic Church, cities and villages, and nomadic tribes all largely minded their own business, while the Coalition still formally claimed to have authority over the entire planet. ​ Growing tensions between the two continents led the Coalition to impose a naval blockade, preventing starships from landing on Lopanga. ​ The various factions of Lopanga responded by banding together and forming the [[Lopanga Confederacy]]. ​ They then hired a band of space pirates, the [[Seventh Wave]], to act as their space navy and break the blockade. ​ The [[Annyrion Civil War]] ended without any shots fired, and the Coalition is no longer pressing its claim over Lopanga at this time.

The city is a mix of slums and more affluent areas. The rule of law is not strong here; most residents choose to go about armed. In lieu of a police force, the organized crime group, the [[Ghueri]], seek to maintain stabilityTrade, nonetheless,​ proceeds by land, air, space, and on the shallow waterway. Epiphyte features ​Kemetic temple, the offices ​of the Lopanga governmenta small spaceport with airship docking pylon, and river docks. Other sights include a stone circle ​(presumably of southern Eisshari origin) and the remains of an colony shipIn 2211the city suffered an invasion ​and was held for a time by a force of military-grade robots before the Seventh Wave freed the city.
