History and background[edit]

During the First Imperium and Second Imperium the world had an established AAB branch.

Shashankhu was originally established as a prison planet during the Pacification Campaigns and had a reputation for extreme brutality. In 322 the prison was closed down and the planet was handed over the surviving inhabitants to run. The locals managed to survived by turning the work camps and mines into an extremely profitable business.

In 905 the Council of Decision elected to join the Amec Trade Protectorate.

Today, Shasher's have a reputation for working hard and playing hard. It is the only world within the boundaries of the Protectorate that has not criminalized drunkenness or murder. The only crime on the statue books is theft, which carries a sentence of death by being flayed alive.
