OverviewEdit

Manchuria is a land of beauty with large mountain ranges, forests, and rivers. It is an Awakened Land, one with a strong industrial base and high technology.[1]

SocietyEdit

Spirits (ancestors and free spirits) have the same rights as human beings. Ancestral spirits visit families and the free spirits interact with the public, helping others. They participate in Manchurian daily life, even owning businesses, holding jobs, or running for public office. There are restrictions as to the type of spirit summons which can be performed and their are laws and regulations in dealing with undesirable spirits (e.g. dangerous animal spirits).[1]

EconomyEdit

Manchuria does not not recognize the Business Recognition Accords, the Corporate Court's standard for the meaning of corporate extraterritoriality. It does recognize extraterritoriality but it's only for specific corporations that are chartered in Manchuria which meet a stringent criteria.

Manchurian citizens can hold as much stock in those corporations as they want.[2]
