History

The planet was comparable to Coruscant in terms of population and scale, but lacked the latter's charm and aesthetics.[2] Heavy atmospheric pressures, a methane gas base, and exotic chemical air molecules made Skako uninhabitable to any species unadapted to high pressure atmospheres. Though most of Skako was covered by urban sprawl, some examples of the planet's orginal ecosystem had been preserved in the form of vast fields of sprawling vines. Skako was also home to the Octuptarras—eight-eyed creatures with gasbag-shaped heads and multiple legs—that inhabited the planet's vines.

Few Skakoans invested in the protective Skakoan pressure suit required for traveling offworld, and thus the species was relatively rare abroad.

The planet was part of the Galactic Republic and the Techno Union, represented in the Galactic Senate by Wat Tambor, Foreman of the Techno Union. After the Clone Wars, the Skakoans' role in the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Human High Culture of the Galactic Empire resulted in their being persecuted. Most retreated to their homeworld, where they remained in isolation.
