Description:

A water-rich world with a single supercontinent and a host of nearby islands for its landmass, Shimonita is fairly unremarkable, its only outstanding feature a swirl of continuous storm activity that rages across the oceans and occasionally floods the coastal regions. For that reason, colonists established very few cities on the coastlines, preferring the interior regions of the Shangai continent, around freshwater seas and lakes that were far enough inland to be spared the worst of the planet's turbulent weather. The soils in those regions were fertile enough to support the population but were unable to sustain an export economy. Likewise, the valuable mineral veins discovered in the hills and mountains of the interior reaches were capable of subsistence-level trade but did not help the planet's economy excel in any real way. Nevertheless, the population of Shimonita grew.

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.
