Default The "Shanghai" of your Traveller Universe

In the 1920's and 1930's Shanghai had a rather ripe reputation as an open city where pretty much anything could be bought, sold, traded, found if you could pay the price. Ostensibly under Chinese control, it was really under the aegis of a conglomerates of European and American groups. The Yangtze Patrol (YangPat) of the US navy was based there, but pretty much anything went in Shanghai. It was rich, devestatingly poor, glittering nightclubs, opium dens, elegant courtesans, decrepit whores, and so on.

I had a couple of border worlds where the law was what you could enforce within fast skimmer range of the starport, and mulitple star nations used it for espionage, trade, and other things. Anyone have something similar?
