Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary Info[edit]

Oshika has long been a prefecture capital world. As a result its cities and industry (what there is of it) are all geared towards the efficient running of the government. The capital city, Takadanobaba, is located in Oshika's only mountain range, the Trilby Mountains[2]. The DCMS headquarters is also located here, which means political power actually flows from the garrisoning military unit.[1]

The world has little to recommend it for colonization, as it's poor in natural resources and food production requires the import of chemical fertilizers. In 3025 several entrepreneurs tried to raise the Oshika Ox (a cross between an elephant and a cow) for commercial export. The Oshika Ox was already a popular foodstuff on Oshika, and exporting the animal seemed a logical next step.[1] In 3079 however, no mention of this venture was made in the review of the planet. It is known, however, that herders of the large Oshika Ox require WorkMechs to do their job effectively.[2]
