Broz is a waterworld with one island continent, inhabited by a primitive tribal group of semi-anthropoid beings who call themselves the Brozul. Initial Romulan Imperial surveys of the planet revealed the presence of metals used frequently in hull-strength alloys. It would have been possible to exterminate the Brozul, but the Romulans - critically short of manpower - chose another solution. They struck a deal with the native supreme shaman, Dizal. The Romulan mining group supplies Dizal with high-technology items that seem magical to his primitive people. With this edge (plus his friendship with the 'smooth gods', as the Romulans are known), Dizal keeps his people in line. ln return, he provides labor for the Romulan mining effort._There are only about 50 Romulans on Broz at any one time, but a small orbital station equipped with ground bombardment
weaponry is maintained in case Dizal should ever think about starting an uprising.
