Nueva Esperanza is a moon of the Gas Giant Arachne V. It’s orbit is over the poles of the giant such that one face is always facing the soon and as the outmost moon it gets the best of the light. While it can still be frigid it is by far the more habitable moon and attacted no less than 6 separate generation ship colonies and numerous splintr groups.
Regretfully on the warm side of the moon there is but one small island to fight over.
The six main powers on the island are:

Large predatory flying lizards and aquatic creatures make both air and sea travel difficult om the warm side so these scraps tend to be reduced to land fights by poor struggling colonies (as can seen in the wargame reports on this site – a play by email game where the creators of the various powers control map moves and wargamers fight the resulting battles.)
The Dark side of the Moon – also known as the ‘polar’ side, the arctic wastes, the Floyd and Jötunheimr to the New Midgardians is barren waste of frozen seas. It is is mercifully free of the giant flying predators of the warm side and therefore the Ciske Line has set up an free space port there , called si vous y étiez (wish you were here) ,which sees more business than the local powers space ports combined. Goods are then shipped in convoy or air caravan to the island colonies protected by mercenaries.
