Shand is an agricultural, nonindustrial, pre-rich world with a growing agro-economy, but still lacks an adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • This world has promising economic future although it needs to recruit a larger labor force in order to achieve the desired prosperity.
  • It is a member of the Sylean Worlds, a cultural region and full member state of the Third Imperium in the Kaskii Subsector of Core Sector in the Domain of Sylea.
  • About 90% of the population is composed of Syleans.
  • About 10% of the population is composed of other human and non-human sophonts.
