The Legation Cities are an union of independent cities along the South-east coast of China, eastablished for trading with foreign nations. They border the Qing Empire and Algostasien GmbH.



Following the 1926 German Intervention in China and the Treaty of Nanjing signed in November of that year, foreign trade was left to the richest cities of the coast, under a joint control of world powers owning interests in China. The independence of these consortium of cities was guaranteed by the major local and international powers, such as the Qing Empire, AlgOstAsien GmbH, Japan, Australasia, Canada, United States and Germany. Initially the Legation Cities flourished, not only through foreign trade but also thanks to smuggling into AlgOstAsien and Qing territories. Unfortunately, this lead to an increasing corruption and the creation of secret criminal fraternities. The approaching economic crisis is threatening the profits of the Legation Council and the criminals bosses might try to take advantage of this situation to increase their power and gain control over the government.

Quite surprisingly, the Legation Cities can boast about the possession of one squadron of tactical bombers, a gift from the German Kaiser.
