Shensi is a small, fairly temperate agricultural world. It's capital is Freeborn City.
From 2901 through 2910, elements of an elite strike force (code named "Red Rover") containing units of the
Defenders of Andurien and the Orloff Grenadiers, conducted a series of deep penetration raids against key Liao
supply depots at Aldebarran, Shensi and Nanking. The raid culminated in the daring capture of a fully laded
iceship, the "Silver Frost," as it prepared to depart the Buenos Aires system. With the Silver Frost in tow, the
Red Rovers launched a multi-pronged assault on the then Liao desert world of Zion, routing the defending
garrison from its fortifications in the Gapston mountain range.
 Shensi is home to some of the largest forests in Republic space. During the great exodus, this timber lured
people living in the great northwest of North America, northern China, and from Russian Siberia. Shensi would
become an export leader of timber and iron ore. The three continents on the planet were covered with tens of
thousands of kilometers of forest, yet the early settlers were able to carve out their new homes without damaging
their new environment. Klondike is the largest continent and is located on the equator and extends north. Its
climate is the most temperate of the three. The capital city, Whitehorse, is located in the center of the continent.
The continent of Mogot, where the Russian settlers colonized, produces the greatest amount of iron, titanium, and
radioactive ores. Its climate is colder and it has fewer mountains. The northern expanses of the continent range far
above the arctic circle, where they exist as frozen tundra. Here petroleum wells have been drilled and oil stored
for the world. On the continent of Kungara, enough of the landscape was open plains for various agricultural
products to be grown to support the population. When Shensi became a member of the Capellan Confederation,
it brought much in the way of natural resources to support the fledgling realm. The CCAF recognized the value of
the world and secretly built a number of hidden supply caches for strategic purposes. Shensi was lost to House
Davion during the Fourth Succession War, but the locals never gave up the secret caches. When Shensi returned
to the Confederation, their supplies was still there, save one cache that had been raided by pirates.
The Word of Blake Jihad didn't touch Shensi, so it was undamaged when it was folded into The Republic.
Shensi was originally part of the Capellan Confederation until the creation of The Republic. Shensi became part
of Prefecture V under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
 Shensi was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Shensi fell back under the influence of the Capellan Confederation.
