History

Arkanis is a planet located in the Outer Rim and is considered to be the capital of the Arkanis Sector despite holding no formal rule over its neighboring planets. Before and during the Galactic Civil War, it was the throneworld of Empress Leeya who ruled over the Regency Worlds, a coalition of planets that held economic control of trade along the Corellian Run.

Empress Leeya allied herself to the Galactic Empire in exchange for limited taxation and the ability to continue to operate with a small amount of independence, while the Empire took advantage of the planet's location and built the Vensenor Flight Academy, a branch of the Imperial Academy.

Following the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY, Arkanis remained under Imperial control for a time but was eventually released from Galactic rule and claimed by the New Republic. Within the New Republic Arkanis eventually grew to become a wealthy planet and for a time aligned themselves with Centrists ideals.

Government and Culture

Arkanis and its government have undergone many changes throughout the years, but with the abolition of the Regency Worlds it no longer holds any rule over other planets within the Arkanis Sector.

No longer a part of the New Republic, Arkanis now operates as a monarchy, and for the better part of a century has been ruled by the Family of Dorran, preceded by the Family of Driscoll. Arkanisians tend to be simple people who do not travel far from their own sector, a majority of them merchants, fishermen, and farmers.

Although the planet has been happily ruled by the royal family for many decades now, time marches on and so does the call for progress. A portion of its citizens have dissented from the majority, instead advocating for a reformation of government that would limit or abolish the powers of the ruling family. Galactic Basic is the standard language of the planet.

Geography and Climate

Arkanis is both breathable and habitable for the majority of sentient species. With three large oceans surrounded by cliffsides on the coastline, the planet is home to an abundance of varying sea life. A rainy planet, it is typical for downpours to occur two to three times a week, with a near continuous drizzle the rest of the time. Sunshine is considered a rare event.

With so much rain and so little sun, farmers are forced to grow the majority of their crops indoors using electric lights. Other plants native to the planet thrive without the sunlight and have evolved over the years to no longer require photosynthesis to survive.

Technology and Resources

The major export of Arkanis is fish and all manner of sea life. The planet's abundance of sea life and subsequent seafood is considered a delicacy among many cultures. Avid fishermen often travel to the planet to fish for sport, others hoping to sell their catches and line their pockets with credits. Arkanis is also known for its precious metals and gemstones and in recent years have turned their eyes toward manufacturing, hoping to increase revenue.

Intent

To create a simple write-up for the canon/legends planet of Arkanis and a write-up for my character's home planet. This is my first planet write-up, so any suggestions or criticisms are appreciated. A big thank you to @Wit for coding/formatting.
