"Well, there's Greenleaf. They'd have med help there."
― Wash, in "Safe"

There are massive rain forests and jungles on Greenleaf, thanks to a large tropical belt. The plants found here are used to provide a variety of life-saving drugs that cannot be easily synthesized in a lab. Most of the locals on Greenleaf work for the major drug companies who have set up shop here. There are those residents who sensed the profits that could be made in the drug industry and began gathering samples from the pharmaceutical plants and growing them privately, in order to sell them on the black market. In response, the drug companies began to engineer new strains of these plants with genetic tags, so that confiscated merchandise could be traced back to its origin point. It has been difficult to stop the smuggling, since there are dozens of small cartels. The Alliance has restricted landing here more so than on some other planets, in an effort to clamp down on the problem. However, the smugglers who know their way around the jungle are usually able to find a way through.

There are mines in the jungles which produce ore or gemstones, and there are island resorts in the broad tropical belt. In higher latitudes there are temperate zones with wine-producing regions. Crops are grown in abundance on the world.
