Gimushi has an comfortably breathable atmosphere. The system has a population between 1 and 10 billion sophonts. Government control of this world is by an external military force. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Gimushi Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Domain of Antares. Gimushi, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of an Imperial knight and a baronet, and the fiefdom of a count. All three are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. Less than 10% of the world's population is the Minor Race Bwap.

History and Background[edit]

Gimushi was one of the Twin Pillars of Heaven during the First Imperium, acting as the agricultural breadbasket for the sector. Gimushi successfully repulsed two ground invasions (A.D. 2790, 2807 or -1730, -1713 Imperial) during the Vargr Pillaging, but at great cost. The Vargr leadership knew that they would never truly own the sector unless they took down the Twins of Heaven. Gimushi’s government, never part of the Golden Twelve, was willing to accept Vargr rule.

Gimushi acts as the cultural centre for a few nearby Vilani systems. Interestingly there are more Bwap on Gimushi than on many Bwap-dominated systems, thanks to her humid climate and successful civil service government.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Gimushi, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport[edit]

Gimushi has a Class D Starport, a poor quality installation which has few of the expected amenities. There is unrefined fuel for starships and a limited variety of ship provisions. There is no shipyard of any kind, but there may be parts and technical support for doing minor services and repair. Ports of this classification generally consist of only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.
