Founded by a group of corporations in the early days of deep-space colonization, Shitara, a world of large landmasses covered with arid mountains, expansive deserts and winding grasslands, was not settled for its appearance but for its potential as a regional commercial hub. Shitara's five main continents - Agito, Hokaido, Niijo, Okasaki and Zumi - all fall within the world's temperate, tropical and equatorial zones but lack many inland freshwater bodies. The rugged terrain and relative lack of suitable irrigation made colonies difficult to establish, but the corporate engineers who laid out the design for Shitara's settlement were less concerned with comfort than with setting up business operations. Several of the planet's first colonies, as a result, were large warehouses, spaceports and mining/refining stations.

In the decades that followed, as Shitara became a jumping-off point for further colonial expansion and a center for trade, more settlers came to call this world home. Large commercial cities arose, particularly along the river valleys of Okasaki and Zumi, including the present-day capital of Hirotomi. Even a few agricultural communities began to appear to support the local population. Located well within the Draconis Combine's borders after that nation expanded to include it and its neighbors, Shitara was spared much of the fighting during the Amaris crisis and the Succession Wars. Raids by the Dragon's enemies were rare, and Shitara prospered, its nearly thirty major spaceport cities making it an ideal hub for commercial and military transport.

Today, Shitara continues to be a transportation and commercial hub, with major cities and spaceports on all five continents. Recently, the planet's robust economy and healthy metal resources have attracted the attention of Klein Manufacturing, a small but growing producer of industrial vehicles, including ConstructionMechs and MiningMechs. Klein Manufacturing is currently negotiating with the Shitara government to establish a major factory complex in the foothills of Agito, just outside the commercial city of Galveston.
