Rukskire (formerly known as Ruchskir) is a small Xanji town located in the eastern territories of the Xanjin Technologist Imperium. Rukskire was formerly a major trading town, as it used to sit on the XTI's borders with the Sassanid Persian Empire. However, the borders are now further east, and Rukskire is no longer a major border trading post.
Rukskire is noted for spawning the Ruchskir clan. One member of this family, Anna Marcus, is the mother of Roman Emperor Augustus XV as well as the wife of the North Siberian President Gaius Marcus VI.
