World Economy[edit]

Argushiigi Admegulasha Bilanidin established a branch on Gashema during the First Imperium as a back-up for the holdings on Vland. The Argushiigi Admegulasha Bilanidin branch on Gashema, therefore, conducts no original research, but is an alternate, back-up repository designed to ensure that should a catastrophe occur on Vland the record and knowledge of the Argushiigi Admegulasha Bilanidin would not be lost.

Trade Data[edit]

Khugishu Bilanidin runs almost all of its shipping activities for the Vland System through Gashema using the relatively cheap, quick, and regular intra-system transport between Gashema and Vland for passengers or cargo destined for that world.

Trans Galactic Starlines, in partnership with Vilani megacorporation Zirunkariish have set-up alternate starports for ease of access and use with connecting in-system service provided to passengers. In the Vland system, Gashema is used. This alternate starport has a Brubek's gastropub and a Medel's Mega Mart.
