History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Ushiik is the rice basket of Laraa subsector; it provides the main source of rice for not only much of the Core Sector markets but also for a greater part of the Imperial Navy emergency rations.

The climate of this world also appeals to Bwaps and a large colony has established itself on the south polar continent. As yet the Bwap's have had little effect on the planetary government, but may change as the Bwap population grow.
