History & Background (Dossier)
Hiroshi (SR 2001) is an Imperial agricultural world with two small moons, located in Concord Subsector of the Solomani Rim. Hiroshi was originally settled by Vilani, but early in the Rule of Man a Buddhist organization based on Terra (Solomani Rim 1827) chose the planet for the site of an isolationist colony. Many of the Vilani population accepted at least some Buddhist ideas and the local religion -- an offshoot of Zen Buddhism with distinctly Vilani overtones -- remains important.
One unusual feature of Hiroshian society is the importance of higher mathematics, which manifests in unique local art forms featuring mathematical designs or motifs, and an unusual number of talented mathematicians among the populace.
