Mainworld Data[edit]

Despite being virtually in the middle of the Third Imperium's sphere of influence, Shibasiim had not been formally contacted.

  • Federation scouts made convert observations in -38, but saw the world as of too little economic consequence; it was, after all, at a low tech level, with a small population, and very little land.
  • Technically it is a balkanized world, but the populations of the tiny countries located on the various, small islands are insignificant. The only government of true import was that of the country in existence on the main landmass.
