"Sihnon isn't that different from this planet. More crowded, obviously, and I guess more complicated. The great city itself is; pictures can't capture it. It's like an ocean of light."

Sihnon is the third planet of the White Sun system, orbiting the White Sun. P/2027(White Sun)04 was discovered in 2027.

Along with its sister planet Londinium, it is amongst the most prominent of the Central Planets. Those who visit the planet often describe it as one of the most beautiful locations in the system, reaching a level of sophistication seldom seen throughout the 'Verse.

OverviewEdit

Sihnon is the seat of Eastern civilization in the Union of Allied Planets. It is here that many Registered Companions undergo their training in the spiritual and physical arts they are known for.[3] Sihnon is also home to Ching Shian University, a prestigious school that has alumni ranging from prime ministers to billionaire philanthropists. There is no better place to study Eastern philosophy, history, law or culture.

Sihnon's preservationalist attitude has caused the government to restrict large vessel traffic to equatorial zones.
