  [Source]

Valhalla (or Valhalla II) is the second planet in the Valhalla system and its namesake, located on the Colonial Frontier outside the Orion Arm. Infamous for its cold weather, Valhalla was first discovered and settled by humans in 2535, when refugees from the colonies of Sansar, Ludvika, and Ryazan fled their respective homeworlds after a Covenant attack. Feeling abandoned by the UNSC, they left and ended up outside the Orion Arm, where they settled the Valhalla system. It was on Valhalla that the Republic of Valhalla (later the Federal Republic of Valhalla) was established, and the planet was quickly made its capital world.

History

Prehistory

During the Human-Forerunner War, what would come to be known as Valhalla was originally a minor planet under San'Shyuum control until it was seized by the Forerunners in a minor battle. The Forerunners would later lose the planet to the Flood, who controlled it up until the firing of the Halo rings. After the activation of the Halo array, Valhalla remained a desolate, frozen pariah for thousands of years.

Industry

Mining

Valhalla is home to a wealth of iron and titanium, so it's largest industry is naturally mining. However, the vast majority of these mines are state-owned, with the occasional exception, and the Valhallan government takes the profit it makes off of selling its raw materials to fund its own projects and military.

Manufacturing

Manufacturing has become increasingly important to the Valhallan economy, with several private and state-owned companies using the raw materials from Valhalla's mines to build and sell weapons and ships, among other products.

Archaeology

Due to its role in prehistoric history, the planet is home to several ancient structures. Independent researchers and xenoarachaeologists have flocked to the planet since the end of the Human-Covenant War in order to research the nearly untouched ruins of previous civilizations, the only downside being a small government tax for access to the artifacts. In contrast, Valhalla's ruins will also attract the occasional foolhardy adventurer looking to get rich off of selling relics to wealthy collectors.
