Taanab was a planet of green meadows in the Taanab system. It was primarily used for agriculture and farming. Its populace was known for always maintaining an air of formality. Taanab had problems with seasonal pirate raids from bandits striking from the planet Norulac for millennia prior to the Battle of Taanab.
The Inner Rim planet of Taanab was a world with abundant sunlight, mild climate, almost no tectonic activity with grassy landmasses, always close to meandering strips of water. The planet was overgrown with green jungles, but no animal life at the time of its colonization.
Near the equator, the fields and factory farms were formed into a hexagonal tessellation. Much of its climate was optimized for bumper yields by weather-controlling satellites and orbital mirrors.
The fauna was imported, with some becoming feral. The untamed former herd members had their numbers checked by droid sharpshooters.
The administrative capital was Pandath. Taanab was sponsored by agricultural conglomerates like Arcon Multinode Agricorp, Tagge Restaurant Association, and Core Foodstuffs. The Banthal Company transported cargo to poorer worlds.
The planet was especially known for its roba steak.
The planet was first discovered between 25,000 BBY to 20,000 BBY, sometime between the Tionese War and the settling of the Slice. During the Great Sith War, a battle was fought here during the Krath Holy Crusade which the Sith had won.
It was later colonized in 2320 BBY, when Taanab was once a world covered in thick, inhospitable jungle, similar to Felucia. During the New Sith Wars, the Brotherhood of Darkness captured the planet and used it as an outpost. Eventually the Jedi Order established a chapter house for the Agricultural Corps in the capital city of Pandath and Taanab became the site of the Inner Rim headquarters of the AgriCorps.
