The Grand Duchy of Kajal Mars was founded by the Imperium of Kajal in 682BDE, through filing a request for land on the surface of The Planet Mars. At the time, Kajal was effectively an extrasolar nation, and the founding of the Duchy allowed Kajal to establish a base from which it could trade with the nations of Sol. Kajal Mars was originally structured not unlike the Imperium, with an appointed official known as the Colonial Controller ruling the colony.
In the early years, Kajal Mars was comprised of three central domes and a multitude of research outposts. Kajal had never discovered a Mars-type planet before, and as such, the small planet, the red soil, and the thin atmosphere fascinated the early scientists. Dryer than Solanna, but not nearly as livable, many wondered why Kajali would want to live their in the first place. With the subsequent terraforming of Mars, however, the air in the colony became breathable, though uncomfortably thin, and the Forestry Project was initiated successfully, resulting in the modified tropical jungle that spans much of Kajal Mars. This jungle is comprised of species of plants previously indigenous to Kajal, and the Forestry Service attempts to keep it within the borders, though the flora have been sighted in other countries.
As a nation, Kajal Mars has a unique position upon Mars. Situated between five sovereign nations, and controlling the oceanic exit for Sunset, it has been in an enviable position for international trade since founding. As such, Kajal Mars' economy has historically been quite stable. With the Tyranid infestation of Qaaolchouraav Mars, the economy dipped slightly, though it is worth noting that Qaaolchouraav Mars was not a particularly large trading partner to begin with.
