Veta (vee-tah) is part of a mountainous area called The Lake District, which, as the the name suggests, is home to a great number of lakes, basins, and reservoirs. Veta Lake refers not only to an actual caldera lake, the deepest and largest in the district, but also to a town of the same name that lies on the north-eastern shore of the lake. While many of the mountains in this area were once volcanoes, they are currently none known to be active.
The region is populated by both people who live and work in the area, and others that live in The Lake District while commuting to Centropolis for work. In addition to the stable population, Veta and the surrounding areas are a popular destination for tourism, as there is ample opportunity for skiing, mountain climbing, caving, and fresh water diving. The scenic views also make the area well known as a romantic destination, and there are some towns the trade on this heavily, with an emphasis on resorts and relaxation. Many of the tourist towns in the Lake District take on European influence from Earth, especially what could be recognized as Bavarian influence. This can be seen in the Gothic archetecture of the area, the costumes that are sometimes donned for the benefit of tourists, and the festival of Alegarten, which is said to be based on a similar Human tradition.
Like neighboring Centropolis, Veta and the surrounding area are very ethnically diverse, and have a roughly even mix of native Subetans and human settlers. Ytivi migrants especially seem to favor this area, possibly because of its similarity to some areas of their homeland.
While it was generally believed that that the area was empty prior to settlement, texts from many other ancient Subetan races make reference to a great empire that fell victim to some kind of cataclysm and vanished. Modern geologic study suggests that the Veta region is a likely candidate for the area referred to in these texts, but no solid evidence has been found.
