Jiangyin is a Border World and very much like a dozen other Border Worlds throughout the system. However, the culture that has arisen on this planet is somewhat different than on other planets. A distinct seperation exists between the citizens who live in the established towns, and those who have made their lives in the hills. The hill people have become a very superstitious lot, and often their villages are not self-sufficient. To compensate for this, they are known to kidnap skilled tradespeople from the towns, whether they be citizens of Jiangyin or come from off-world. These tradespeople are put to work for the hill folk, whether moved by the plight of these less fortunate, or, more frequently, convinced through threat of violence. (Firefly: "Safe")
