History and background[edit]

Shea was a well-established Vilani colony world stretching back to the early years of the First Imperium but became a refuge for millions of Vilani fleeing the rimward sectors following the collapse of the empire at the hands of the Solomani. The huge influx of refugees over a 50-year period increased the population ten-fold, from a stable 18 million to nearly 200 million. With restrictions on the movement of large sections of the Vilani population and the later collapse of the Solomani Empire the number of inhabitants steadily grew until the huge population had stripped the planet of almost all its resources.

Shea's only real export now are its well-trained people, most of which most are of pure Vilani lineage, for the world has a number of large, excellent universities, institutes and academies including the city of the University of Kasiiga. Shea's capital (Urshiiglii) also holds one of the largest MemClip libraries in all the Imperium - a branch of the Argushiigi Admegulasha Bilanidin, following closely behind Vland, Terra and Capital.

World Military[edit]

Army General Dame Nadia Wagner is the current commander of the 766th Commando Brigade, which is charged with counter insurgency.
