The Silverhold Colonies are located on a planet of the same name orbiting the brown dwarf/protostar Heinlein. It is the second most populous world in the Kalidasa region.
The colonies have retained their national and geographic identities to a far more elaborate degree than many of the planets in the ’Verse. The Colonies, though they are considered a single jurisdiction for law enforcement and governance purposes, are quite fractured, and the planet has been locked in a sort of “cold war” for decades. Indeed, many Federal agents feel more like peacekeepers than cops.
Silverhold has one moon, Beggar’s Tin.
