Little is known about the bigger region of Aphrodite Terra. Venus has the densest atmosphere of the four terrestrial planets, consisting of more than 96% carbon dioxide. The atmospheric pressure at the planet's surface is 92 times that of Earth's. With a mean surface temperature of 735 K (462 °C; 863 °F), Venus is by far the hottest planet in the Solar System. So life is at leat 15% possible for some species of bacteria however no data as been found.
On 9 September 2014 the Lomellinian Galactic Empire under the control of the Principality of Lomellina claimed Tethis Regio and 2 other colonies, Ovda Regio and Artemis Corona and annexed it to the Empire under the Grand-Duchy of Venus.
Empress D. Tânya pretends to colonize Venus with human but due to extremely hostile conditions, a surface colony on Venus is not possible with current technology. The atmospheric pressure and temperature approximately fifty kilometres above the surface are similar to those at Earth's surface and Earth air (nitrogen and oxygen) would be a lifting gas in the Venusian atmosphere of mostly carbon dioxide. This has led to proposals for "floating cities" in the Venusian atmosphere.
Government and politics
The Duchy of Tethis Regio was ruled by a Duke or a Duchess that were obligated to follow the laws and the traditions of the Grand-Duchy of Venus wich was controled over the Lomellinian Galactic Empire.
