History and background[edit]

Although no longer the vast producer of important raw materials, Diishalum is still the industrial center of the Shallows. The system now concentrates on the production of manufactured goods, to be found constructed in the huge underground warehouse-factories of the main world.

The main industrial players of Shallows, Dagudashaag and the Imperium have a presence here (including Sternmetal Horizons, Naasirka, Zirunkariish, and DagMet AG).

Diishalum holds the Shallows Subsector headquarters offices and a major trading clearinghouse for Zirunkariish.

The companies board (a committee representing the industrial interests of Diishalum) are currently investigating ways of stalling the trade deals on the Niirkhi (Dagudashaag 0613) harvest who are looking to taking their agricultural needs to Irphothe (Dagudashaag 0515).
