Description:

Named after a provincial capital from the northeast Zhejiang province in China on Terra, Ningpo was a temperate world of fertile ground and beautiful seas. The planet became a moderate supplier of many agricultural products to worlds like Pleione and Poznan.

Ningpo has two major continents and many islands that are home to many of the exotic birds on the planet. The continent of Qingyuan covers most of the northern hemisphere, and is composed of 85 percent farmland with rolling hills and dales. Ningbo, the planetary capital, is located on the southeast coast of the continent. Liampo, the smaller of the two continents, is located in the equatorial region, extending into the southern hemisphere.

Liampo is the more industrialized of the two, though 45 percent of it is covered by farmland, much like Qingyuan. One of the most beautiful places on the planet is Qingyuan's Yalosha Peninsula. Located on the southwest coast, Yalosha is large peninsula flanked by a large mountain range called Yalo Rue. The mountains and the peninsula are covered with lush green forests that the timber industry has been selectively farming and using to produce some of the most beautiful furniture in the Inner Sphere. It is rumored that the Celestial Throne of the Capellan Confederation is made of Ningpo timber.

During the Fourth Succession War, one of the elite regiments of the Northwind Highlanders fought the Third Davion Guards to a standstill before they were allowed to retire to Northwind.
