Khikaba is a preindustrial, moderate population world with over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in population size.

  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Shuna Subsector of Lishun Sector in the Domain of Antares.
  • During the Long Night this world was named Shuuin Aep.
  • This world was colonized by and is controlled from Biaz Ven (world).

Now under martial law, Khikaba's government is administered from the naval base at Shuka Gipdim (Lishun 0728 A370575-E).
