[3132] One of the first worlds settled by the Azami, a fanatical Muslim culture originating in the northern region of
Terra's Africa continent, known for its fierce and dedicated warriors. Much of Markab strongly resembles the
native lands of these proud people. The surface land of Markab is concentrated mostly in a single, giant
supercontinent known as Al-Qoradana, which has few inland rivers or bodies of water of any sort. A few islands
of various sizes pepper the oceans surrounding this great landmass, but it is on Al-Qoradana that the settlers
established the majority of their cities. These early colonists, drawn by the hidden wealth of precious metals and
hydrocarbons beneath the windswept surface of sand, rocks, and precious few oases, carved their niche into the
world despite a harmful bacteriological taint in the atmosphere. Resourceful, the Azami learned to overcome the
ravages of the world's environment, and the planet flourished despite a campaign by the forces of the Draconis
Combine to undercut their culture and independence. As a result of the Combine attacks, however, most of the
Azami's water-purification plants were destroyed, and those that survived malfunctioned over time. Only in the
last century or so, with the rediscovery of lost technologies, have the inhabitants of Markab been able to restore
the lost ability to drink their own world's abundant seawater and use it for irrigation.

[3132] Markab was originally part of the Federated Suns until the creation of The Republic. Markab became
part of Prefecture III under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic
was created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
[3135] Markab was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Markab fell under the influence of the Dieron territory.
