Drask had only one continent, covered in plains, forests, and mountains. The planet's temperate summertime climate and fertile soil made it an almost ideal agriworld.
Drask's history starts out on Yaunch, the philosopher and devout follower of the Trinn's Way religion Thebe Siemp taught that the Yaunchets should return to the lives of simplicity the species led prior to industrialization. Over a ten-year period, Siemp gained followers, whom he led to Drask so they could return to the peaceful agrarian society they had before Yaunch’s industrialization.
Later on, Ursian Humans who had fled their devastated homeworld started settling on Drask. The Yaunchets initially welcomed them, but animosity developed when the Ursians began to outnumber the Yaunchets. But as the Ursians became more integrated, this animosity subsided.
Fifty years later, Yaunchets immigrated to Drask in huge numbers when violence broke out on Yaunch (now called Har-ak). The original Yaunchets and Drasken Humans were welcoming at first, but grew concerned as the refugees quickly outnumbered them and put strain on Drask. But before much could be done, Drask was conquered by the Sith, and went under the harsh rule of a dynasty of high-ranking Sith Minions.
After decades of Sith rule, Drask was liberated by the enigmatic Jedi known as Kyra of Rosk. Gaining back on their feet, the Draskens formed a Democratic Republic and joined the Galactic Republic as part of the Ojoster sector. They also built fishing settlements on Drask’s moon Tivares.
In 618 BBY, Drask's government chartered and funded a colony on Xiek’s moon Rosk, (named in honor of the Jedi liberator) based on the manufacturing of elifet plant products. Drask allowed Rosk limited autonomy and would receive a portion of Rosk’s income for decades to come.
Society and Culture
Yaunchets were the dominant species on Drask, they composed 55% percent of the population. Humans made up 27%, they were mostly of Ursian stock. Nautolans composed 15%, they originally settled on Rosk, but many migrated to Drask later on. Nautolans mostly lived in urban areas and made up many of Drask’s scientists and engineers.
While different aspects of their culture were associated with different species, all three species in general, shared a culture. Many Draskens live in multi-generation homes. Drask's urban and rural populations were just about even. The age of responsibility was 18. Because of Har-ak’s (Yaunch's) aristocracy and their treatment of Yaunchets there, Draskens hated the concept of nobility with a passion.
Drask had three branches of government: legislative, executive, and judicial. Their chief of state and head of government was a president. The government had many socialist ideas.
Even though Drask's constitution was heavily based on Trinn's Way, the religion had no official status.
