this planet was originally colonized by settlers from Thokos. There were seven colony ships that arrived, and the descendants from each ship formed the basis for Ammuud's seven major clans. A series of savage clan wars broke out, and lasted for nearly 10,000 years. About 100 years before the Galactic Civil War, the clans agreed to a cease-fire, and developed a governmental system based on the Ammuud Code. Years later, the planet was annexed by the Corporate Sector Authority and placed under its jurisdiction, but the governmental duties were subcontracted to the clans. Each clan leader, or Mor, then ruled as part of the planet's government. This coalition was very shaky, as the clans tended to play against each other in a perpetual power struggle. There were even aspects of the Ammuud Code that were used among the clans to ensure some level of fairness. The planet itself was heavily forested, with large oceans and two immense polar ice caps. Ammuud's day was slightly shorter than a standard day on Coruscant.
