Sichuan from Shadowrun Sourcebook, Sixth World Almanac

Sichuan is a state in divided China. It is a militaristic, magocratic warlord state located in central China.


Its leader, General Liang shot to fame defending the territory from Canton Confederacy raiders in 2042. He was promptly promoted by the military to General and staged a coup. By 2044 he had marched on the capital of Chengdu and installed himself as leader.


Run by a "General" - the title is honourary but people still refer to him as General. Although it has elections, a legislature, and a judicial system and calls itself a Republic, Liang runs the place autocratically with Lung's support.


It is a state in which the Awakened are favored over the non-magical. When a magician or adept takes a civil service entrance exams or promotion test, they are given bonus points. The un-Awakened are informally barred from holding higher ranking positions in the local government, these are reserved for magic users. The Ministers, Chiefs of Staff, and Secretaries of most of the major state ministries are either adepts or magicians. Likewise when it comes to the commanders of the major army divisions.[1]


It is the largest Chinese successor state when it comes to the size of its territory. Sichuan possesses one of the most powerful armies in China. Law enforcement in Sichuan is handled by a separate branch of the army. Regional garrison commanders have the authority to override the policies, decisions, or actions of their civilian counterparts.[2] The state of Sichuan along with the Canton Confederation, the Kingdom of Shaanxi, and the People's Republic of Hena, inherited the nuclear weapons of the People's Republic of China. Sichuan also inherited the lion's share of China's nuclear processing and research infrastructure.[3]
