In the following decades, the rising Ozawa Mercantile Association took interest in Shimonita after geologists discovered substantial metal ore deposits just off the Shangai shorelines. Despite the turbulent weather, the Association secured the rights to establish a number of ore mining rigs and submerged habitats along the southern and eastern shores of Shangai, where the most lucrative veins were located. The rise of the Draconis Combine and the defeat of the Ozawa clan brought these mining facilities under the dominion of the Dragon, but poor maintenance and the ravages of Shimonita's weather decimated them within a century.
Efforts by various corporations to revive the planet's offshore mining operations sputtered along during the Succession Wars, but few succeeded for more than a few decades.
The capital city of Shimonita, Irezumi City, is located on the southern shore of the Tranquil Sea, Shangai's largest inland body of water. The nearby city of Tranquil Bay is Shimonita's largest resort town and commercial center.
