Shang Mu is one of the Three Major Kingdoms of Avalice (alongside Shang Tu and Shuigang) and is ruled by Mayor Zao, whose propaganda covers the streets. Shang Mu first began as a modest port city, but thanks to Zao's Administration, the city grew into a sprawling metropolis, making the rest of Avalice look like the Stone Age. There are strong implications that Zao had gained his position of power through means that are less-than-democratic, such as bribery or rigging the election. However, his cleverness may also be the reason why Shang Mu has grown into the most advanced nation on Avalice. In the two years after Lord Brevon's defeat, Shang Mu found itself under the protection of Captain Kalaw, who is also the champion of the city's Battlesphere.

  • The name "Shang Mu" comes from Chinese (上木), meaning "up", "top", or "upper" and "wood" or "forest", so perhaps a loose translation could be "on wood" or "on the forest".
  • One of Zao's posters reads "YOU can do it | Vote for proposal 32".
  • A poster seen in Fortune Night shows a cameo image of Neige the Cat (labeled as "雪猫" or "Snow Cat"), a character of R-no71, who did character art for Freedom Planet.
  • It seems likely that Red is the national color of Shang Mu.
  • The buildings and culture of Shang Mu resembles that of China and Japan.
