History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Hsuishlesh is an important, high-population industrial world located on the Rim Main within Esperance Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

Hsuishlesh’s primary importance is its highly strategic location: it is the main transfer point for low-jump ships entering the Vegan Autonomous District from Rimward. The Hsuishlesh port hosts one of the most diverse collections of ships and cargoes to be found anywhere. The planet’s economy is dominated by interstellar commerce, and a significant portion of planetary industrial production supports the starport, shipyards, and naval base.

The mainworld population is a mix of Vegans and humans, home to a burgeoning philosophical movement in which humans embrace Vegan culture.
