[3132] In most respects, Skat is an unremarkable world with four large continents covering almost half the
planetary surface, three tiny asteroid moons in close orbit, and slightly more ozone in the atmosphere than healthy
for breathing without either respirators or specialized antioxidant medication.

The planet’s first settlers actually hailed from two distinct colonial groups—one of Japanese and Korean descent,
and the other from a combined German-Austrian venture. The groups staked out two separate continents for
settlement, with the Japanese and Koreans claiming the southern landmass of Quayling, and the German-Austrian
group claiming Freiheim.

The two colonial groups expanded to the other two continents of Uchida and Unzervalt over the next several
decades, when a dispute over fishing territory and an island chain finally erupted into open conflict during the Age
of War. The conflict was settled thanks to intervention by the Terran Hegemony, and Skat became part of that
alliance until the fall of the Star League.

Today, after falling under the dominion of Houses Davion and Kurita in turn during the Succession Wars, Skat’s
dominantly Germanic and Asian population continues to maintain a dual-cultural world. After rising and falling
from prominence as the House Lords changed, the cities of Aneheim, along Freiheim’s Kirschner River, and
Inyong City, on Quayling’s southern coast, once again form the twin capitals of the planet. Skat’s largest
spaceport, Jinyiang, is located on Uchida, while the city of Londerhalt is arguably the planet’s largest industrial

[3132] Skat was originally part of the Federated Suns until the creation of The Republic. Skat 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] Skat was released from the control of The Republic.

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