"Boros is too big. It's crawling with Alliance."
― Mal in the "Serenity" episode

Boros has a lot of prairie land where you can find sprawling ranches and farms, though there are a few cities with factories and other forms of business as well. Most of the goods manufactured here are sold and used locally rather than exported. The major industry is scrap metal, and people come here to find all manner of parts at good prices.

One of Boros' moons, known as Ares, is the site of Iskellian's primary military shipyard. Those who travel to Boros can usually see up to five cruisers being built in orbit around the moon. Parts that don’t meet the Alliance’s rigorous standards, castoffs and other junk from the shipyard make their way into Boros' scrapyards.

While the planet has few landing restrictions, there is a strong Alliance presence here thanks to the nearby shipyard. There is a large training facility and a VA hospital here, and any number of government agents, bureaucrats and military folk around.
