A comparison of Earth's landmasses (gray) with those of Odervistula (orange) for scale.

Précis from The TTA Colony Factfile:
Colony name: Odvisteurla (82 Eri 2)
Distance from Sol: 1 Transit
Primary industry: Export of refined minerals

Gravity: .952
Day: 21.68 standard hours
Year: 301.1 standard days
Average surface temperature: 16.3 C (Earth 15.1)
Equatorial circumference: 37,979.717 km (Earth 40,075.017 )
Land/water: 30/70

Total population: 30 million
Population centers:
Aruve: (6 million) primary refinement center and spaceport
Sadar (6 million) center of government
Icusna (4 million) fishing, bioindustry
Procheskio (3 million) bioindustry

Notes:
Abundance of rare-earth minerals
One major continent
Shallow ocean dominated by colonial organisms, source of valuable organic complexes

Politico-economic summary:
Odvisteurla is a productive world, but increased profit margins on other worlds have led to many large companies reloacting their operations.
In 234, anti-SU dissidents fomented the 'Salt Rebellion', a protest against increased processing and transit taxes on rare salts, the harvesting of which is the primary business of self-employed individuals on Odervistula. UMFL efforts to restore order were met with violence; the resulting conflict lasted 9 standard months.
In 244, the Odervistulan Parliament issued their “Declaration of Intent”, giving notice that they would no longer recognize the rightful governance of the Solar Union and would react to any attempt to restore legitimate government with violence.
Loyal elements have maintained control over Aruve, the primary economic center and spaceport, and have established a government-in-exile. No attempt has been made by partisan forces to seize the transit gate. Exports from Odervistula continue unabated.

Here's a somewhat crude larger map with cities and features labeled.

Thanks, mate! I put this together in a hurry; I'll try to get some more flavor out there, too.

Composite orbital image of Odvisteurla. The color features visible in the ocean are 'mats', groupings of extremely large native colonial organisms.
