A world that is some 85% water, Belasco has a small main land mass and various clusters of islands across its face. Though the waterways of Belasco are largely shallow, it has three particularly deep bodies: the Great Sea of Belasco (which abuts the main landmass), the Ice Sheet (an arctic depths largely covered over by a centuries-old ice sheet), and the Endiskaan Elet, a deep sea surrounded by small clusters of islands.

Archaeologically, Belasco seems to have always been home to a human population, including a very ancient society of boat-using peoples whose culture still exists but is largely marginalized and restricted to out-of-the-way islands all but barren of resources.

About twenty millennia ago, Belasco was home to a major hyperspace crossroads, which has long since shifted away. For the entirety of his history, save the last few hundred years, Belasco was ruled by House Belasco, a monarchic family with dealings among many of the other noble houses across the galaxy. The family died out some four hundred years ago, and Belasco has been governed democratically since then.
