The pseudopotential model of particle interaction of a semiclassical fully ionized plasma, taking into account both quantum effects at short distances and screening field effects at large distances is developed. Radial distribution functions are investigated and it is shown that a short-range order formation can occur in the system under discussion. Correlation energy of dense high-temperature plasma, existing in astrophysical objects is studied and comparison with other methods is performed.
