Known to early settlers as "The Walnut of Saturn", Iapetus is most recognizable for the tall ridge running most of the way around the moon along its equator, comprised of some of the tallest mountains in the entire solar system. Although at only 2% of Earth's gravity there isn't much need for a Space Elevator, such a prominent equatorial ridge would make for a perfect socket site if one were to be built.
We expect significant French immigration, as surface features of Iapetus are named after characters and places from the French epic poem, The Song of Roland. Though, given that Iapetus orbits almost three times farther out from Saturn even than Titan, immigration in general might be slower than usual.
