An otherwise unremarkable world, Ziliang gained prominence during the last decades of the Third Succession War. For centuries it had been an isolated interior Capellan Confederation world; mining and mineral extraction was this harsh world's only significant industry. Its inhabitants were largely uneducated (except for the political prisoners sent there to work and die in the mines) and poor. Those that weren't working in the mines or imprisoned in one of the several prisons and "re-education facilities" came to escape the rampant Capellan oppression on the more prominent and prosperous worlds. On Ziliang, they could disappear into the difficult wilds.
