Anshu is a rich and agricultural production world with a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system supports a population in the millions of sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Iiradu Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Anshu, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the feifdom of a baron. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships. During the Long Night this world was named Gin.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Anshu system contains a Naval base hosting elements of the 187th Fleet, a modest shipyard, and a class A starport with facilities without par in the subsector. The climate is pleasant, there are many island chains and small continents offering a variety of conditions and facilities. The local produce is excellent.

Visitors considering skimming at the system gas giants are advised that Anshu III and Anshu IV are under naval restrictions. Skimming is permitted at Anshu VII, but as this lies over 1200 AU out, beyond the orbit of the companion red dwarf.

History and background[edit]

The system government acts as if were a civilian wing of the Imperial Fleet, and the high law level reflects restrictions on civilians: certain areas are restricted to military access and civilians may not bear arms. The locals do not object as they are well compensated for running the R&R facilities. The government of Anshu is at pains to stress the system is not under martial law; the ruling council merely takes appropriate counseling from the Navy.

The massive combine-farms which dot the planet's surface are run almost totally automatically and, by tradition, are run quite separately from the main government by the Searn board. Searn is a seed harvested for its oils, and a major export from Anshu. A wide variety of produce is exported throughout the subsector, with delicacies most often shipped to Iiradu.
