Description:

Discovered almost by accident, Foochow was not colonized until the late 22nd century, by a sizeable population escaping from China on Terra. The planet was named after the capital of the Fujian province in southeast China. Like its namesake, Foochow became a seafood exporter, supplying many worlds. Foochow is fairly unusual in that does not have large polar ice caps. The planet is like a large greenhouse.

The one continent, Min-how, is located along the equator and was mostly jungle when the first colonists landed. They spent the first 50 years fighting disease-carrying insects and Dobars, large six-limbed carnivores the size of black bears. The settlers overcame the land and were able to make it productive, even taming some of the Dobars.

Foochow had very little industry until explorers discovered minerals on Min-how's southwest coast. These minerals were used to produce electronics. The town of Redswan is the planet's leading industrial city. The planet's capital, Vashura, located on eastern Min-how, is the largest seaport and produces the bulk of the planet's exports in fish.

During the Fourth Succession War, Foochow was captured and remained in Davion hands until 3057, when the planet was captured during the Marik-Liao invasion.
