Bountiful is a verdant Fringe World. It has a climate similar to Earth, with distinct seasons such as autumn and winter. Its stratosphere was slightly more dynamic however, ranging to gray skies with ranging thunderstorms, vibrant blue in winter and at sunset, a cobalt sky.
Much emphasis on communal activities is evident in Bountiful's culture, children being educated in science and spirituality in large groups, although teenagers exert more freedom. Known subjects include history/heritage, hydroponics and religious studies.
Bountiful was colonized in the 24th century, roughly at the same time the terrans of Tarsonis had made first contact with those on Umoja and Moria. It was colonized by religious individuals from all three colonies, relying on hydroponic agriculture to support themselves. Patriarchs, the religious leaders of the colony, also seemed to have administrative duties.
Bountiful was a peaceful world and far removed from Confederate influence. This was shattered in 2499, where as part of a mass conscription process, the Confederacy attacked Helaman Township, carrying out forceful recruitment.
Bountiful later became a world of the Terran Dominion. During the Second Great War, in the midst of the public outcry that resulted from Raynor's Raiders revealing that Arcturus Mengsk had used the zerg against Tarsonis in the Great War, Bountiful declared independence.
