Description:

Kaifeng is a sparsely populated agricultural world. Approximately 60% of Kaifeng's total landmass is covered by dense jungle, but the remaining land contains some of the most productive agricultural concerns in the entire Inner Sphere. At four million tonnes per year, rice is Kaifeng's primary export. In fact, Kaifeng supplies almost all of Sarna's food and exports agricultural products to other nearby worlds as well.

Apart from the farming communities, Kaifeng has only four cities. The farmland is clumped into three large districts, one in the southern hemisphere and two in the northern. Each district is administered by a single large city - Franklin in the south, Beijing and Tarrahause in the north. The planets largest city and capital, Mahabodhi, is situated outside the Beijing District, and has the only full-service spaceport on the planet. The three districts act as gathering points - surplus food is routed from them to Mahabohdi for export.

Kaifeng has only one moon, Nochon, which is barely bigger than a mere asteroid.

With the signing of the Star League Accords in 2569, the Terran Hegemony, and Terra in particular, became an important center of activity. Naturally, the Court of the Star League in Unity City was the prime focus.

To show the united nature of the League, the interior of the court was built with materials from every corner of human space. From Kaifeng, came the huge pillars of Shimmer Granite that stood in the court's Grand Hall.
