Shenk is a pre-agricultural, moderate population world with over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in population size.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Orbiting at a fraction of an AU from its red primary, in this binary system, its two hundred million residents are loyal imperial citizens. They have a vote and a voice in how this subsector capital is run. The excellent starport, advanced technology and repair and refuelling facilities help support a scout base. The two hundred thousand ton capacity shipyards produce advanced designs. The popular culture is a blend of Solomani with the typical older Vilani values, a love of order and rigid tradition.
