The cleanup effort was a failure, and the population rebelled constantly against anyone they saw as "authority". The last Starfleet officers were evacuated in 2318. Since then the planet has been a haven for criminal operations and unchecked violence.
Despite or perhaps because of its distance from the major powers after the destruction of Romulus, Nimbus III has a diverse population of many different species, including Andorian, B'abynii, Bolian, Breen, Caitian, Daxxtarian, Easathir, Ferasan, Ferengi, Gorn, Hirogen, Human, Klingon, Lethean, Liberated Borg, Nausicaan, Orion, Pakled, Reman, Romulan and many others. The inhabitants of Nimbus III are collectively referred to as Nimbosians.

Paradise CityParadise City, such as it is, is the capital and only main settlement of the planet Nimbus III. Established in 2267, Paradise City housed the representatives of the three governments in control of Nimbus III, the United Federation of Planets, the Romulan Star Empire and Klingon Empire.
After the collapse of Diplomatic negotiations and failure of the subsequent clean up efforts, control was lost to the populace, who were mostly undesirables and outcasts.
All missions for Nimbus III are obtained in locations inside the settlement, mostly the bar immediately in front of the main (and only) gate.

Extending east of Paradise City, the desert is home to dangerous wildlife.
Located to the Northeast of Paradise City, the remains of a crashed starship serve as the approach to the stronghold of the Orion Syndicate. Hassan the Undying's stronghold, Shangdu, is located here, as is an outdoor prison used by the Syndicate.
ShangduHassan's fortress contains a bar and combat arena. By 2411, after his defeat, it is run by Madran. It is only accessible by playing “The Undying” and “Partisans”.
Located South of Paradise City, the canyon is under the control of a pack of Gorn separatists. They control the passage to the satellite installation.
Located to the far Southeast, this is the location of Installation 18, a secret Tal Shiar facility.
The facility is only accessible during “Installation 18”.
A number of accolades can be obtained on Nimbus III:
- "Tale of the Witch": General Rodek and his wife, B'irja, travel to Nimbus III in search of Adet'pa, a Klingon woman known locally as a "witch," who allegedly knows the truth about what happened during the duel between J'mpok and Martok in 2393.
- "The Ascendant": J'Ula goes to Nimbus III in search of members of her fallen house, finding Adet'pa.
