Anshir is a rich world with a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system supports a population in the 100's of millions, which makes it too urbanized to make an agricultural world. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Arnakhish Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Anshir, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of an Imperial knight and a baronet, and the fiefdoms of a baron and a viscount. All four are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Khuurmuun.

History and background[edit]

Anshir is divided into four independent states. Three of whom coexist peacefully with only minimal border formalities. Since 1110 talks on federalization between them have been approaching fulfillment.

The fourth nation, Rashed, has since a military coup in 1084 been holding itself apart from the moves to planetary unity. This is in part due to the problem of the Kaliffes, a group of human settlers who arrived on Anshir during the early days of the Imperium and now inhabit part of Rashed and the two neighboring countries. The Kaliffes claim their parts of all three countries as a fifth, independent, country known as Kalifstan. In Rashed, and to a lesser extent in the other two states, this takes the form of the Kaliffe Freedom Party (KFP) who are staging an armed insurrection against the military rulers of Rashed.
