Coventry is a pleasant world of large seas and mild seasons. Because of the favorable climate, the earlier settlers had soon turned Coventry into a major agricultural center for the Lyran worlds near the Periphery. Though it is an agricultural center to this day, the eventual discovery of major deposits of rare metals has also made the planet an industrial center. Coventry Metal Works, the second largest BattleMech company in the Commonwealth, is located here. The discoveryof another major deposit of rare metals a decade ago set off a new surge of growth in Coventry's economy. The number of native corporations in and around the cities on the planet's four continents has tripled in the last ten years. At the moment these firms have not branched out into the larger Commonwealth market, but some, like McKenzy Molecular Smelters and Greenbill Aerospace, seem on the verge of doing so.
