Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
Geonee Cultural Region

An area within the Massilia Sector, made up of eight worlds populated by the Geonee.

The Geonee are a minor race of Humaniti, native to Shiwonee (Shiwonee/Massilia 1430).

The Geonee Cultural Region is rich in Ancient artifacts. The Imperium has verified that artifacts have been recovered from Lagna (Shiwonee/Massilia 1029) and Shiwonee (Shiwonee/Massilia 1430); the Geonee themselves claim that all eight of their worlds were originally inhabited by the "Geonee"; that is, the Ancients.

One interesting point is that all eight systems contain extensive asteroid belts. The Geonee claim that these are the remnants of worlds destroyed in the Final War, but most Imperial scientists dispute this, while admitting that the frequency of belts is, statistically speaking, unusually high.

The Shiwonee system has three asteroid belts; Shiwonee itself is quite active, seismically, with quakes being common and 44 active volcanoes dotting the globe.
