Xinyang II - more commonly known simply as Xinyangs - is the second planet in the Xinyang system and has One moon named Henan.[2]

Planetary History[edit]

Xinyang is the capital world of the Xinyang Prefecture. Located in the center of the Draconis Combine close to Luthien, Xinyang wasn't subject to raids like most of the border worlds. If Xinyang had anything other than a large amount of fresh water, it would be an industrial powerhouse. Unfortunately the water is the only resource the planet really offers. Given its relatively central location, the DCMS and DCA use it as a trans-shipment point and administrative headquarters. There is also a major military hospital on the world, and the ISF maintains a facility to debrief soldiers returning from the front lines.[1] This hospital can house up to ten thousand patients at once, but the Jihad strained even this massive facility.[2]

The planet cannot produce enough food to feed all its residents, so imports of food are quite common.[1]
