Lannik has remained aloof from galactic governments for many generations. Unlike most other Republic planets, the considerable natural resources and mineral wealth of Lannik were largely unmined and unexploited, making it a tempting prize for enterprising would-be manipulators. Under the Galactic Empire, Lannik remains largely isolated, although there is an increased Imperial presence in recent years.

The Lannik High Council & Red Iaro

The Lannik High Court was the ruling body of the planet Lannik in the years before the Clone Wars. During the reign of prince R'cardo Sooflie IX's father, an insurgent terrorist group called the Red Iaro began a long and bloody civil war. Early on in this conflict, a group of Corellian diplomats were sent to mediate. Jedi Master Even Piell also accompanied them as an observer and in his post as Jedi Watchman of Lannik. However, when the Corellian diplomats were finally able to meet with the Lannik High Court, the Red Iaro attacked. Master Piell was able to defeat all of them, but at the cost of his left eye.

The war raged on for many years until eventually the two parties were ready to talk again. They met on the planet Malastare where a failed assassination plot by the Iaro left their leader dead, and the rest of the organization scattered. Because of this, the unpopular High Court under R'card Sooflie IX was restored to power.

Imperial Occupation

With the rise of the Empire, however, many of the old anti-authoritarian tendencies among modern Lannik culture bubbled to the surface, and the nascent Imperial presence on Lannik was actually wiped out by a series of terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of the Imperial governor and certain Intelligence assets. These terrorists claimed to be the Red Iaro returned.

The Imperial response was predictably draconian, and one of the first public missions of Darth Vader was to round up the membership of Red Iaro and publicly execute them. Once the Lord of the Sith departed, he left in his wake an Imperial presence with orders to keep the peace. By and large, the execution of Red Iaro and the subsequent Imperial peacekeeping measures have churned Lannik sensitibilities, and when Padmé Amidala came to Lannik to help them form an insurgency group, she found unheard of support from the Lannik people. Though not all of them joined the Lannik Insurgency, many of them support it in various ways.
