Gishi is an agricultural world with an ideal environment for producing food from plants, animals, or other forms. The system has a population between 100,000 and 10 million sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Shallows Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland.

History and background
Despite many hardships the world is virtually self-sufficient in all its needs, indeed it is a net exporter of foodstuffs. The Gishians cultivate the native plant life which, fortunately both very edible and nutritious. The vegetation is composed of thick expanses of moss and lichen-like plants which thrive in the seemingly harsh environment. Their simple low life appearance belie their sophisticated structure, biochemistry and reproductive methods.
The Gishians live in sheltered dwellings, mostly carved out of the many hills and mountain ranges. Their energy needs are provided by geothermal activity tapped by extensive bore holes that riddle the inhabited areas. Although the Gishians have to import most of their high-tech items they are able to export much of their knowledge (and some equipment) in the exploitation of geothermal power.
