Alshain is a fair-sized planet with enough natural resources to support a BattleMech factory and various lesser industries. Beyond that, the world is not large enough to support anything larger than light industry. The general climate of the world is temperate, and it possesses large pine forests, which were started by the original settlers.

Silverdale is the capital of Alshain. A large city, it clusters around the planet's spaceport. In addition, the city has a large, European-influenced ukiyo, complete with beer halls and red lights. There is also a growing underground movement that worries the ISF.

The head of the Alshain People's Movement is a shadowy figure called the Silver Fox. As a result of their latest terrorist action, 20 workers were killed at the BattleMech factory. The metsukes have brutally executed suspected members of the groups to quell the growing movement, but to no avail.

[3054] When Alshain was overrun, the Kuritans attempted to destroy their factories rather than surrender them to Clan use. Most of the Alshain factories were leveled, but the Clans managed to salvage and rebuild the Locust line. The Ghost Bears are using the Joint Equipment systems facilities reluctantly. Even by Inner Sphere standards, the vehicles produced here are considered poor quality.
