"Another planet in the Trilon sector, Gannaria sees far fewer visitors than Batuu. Those who do are most likely engaging in the illegal spice trade that has existed on the planet for hundreds of years."
―Eloc Throno, Traveler's Guide to Batuu[2]

Gannaria was a terrestrial planet located in the Trilon sector,[2] a part of the Outer Rim Territories. Situated in grid square H-15 of the Standard Galactic Grid,[1] it was linked by hyperspace routes to the Batuu and Zaddja systems[2] and shared its name with the route known as the Gannarian Run.[3]

For centuries, Gannaria hosted trade in illegal spice. Smugglers traveling illegally to and from the planet found the Black Spire Outpost on the nearby world Batuu, which was visited by off-worlders much more frequently than Gannaria, to be a convenient stop on their trips.[2] The human First Order stormtrooper HF-3311,[3] who was born in 10 ABY,[4] hailed from Gannaria.[3] The historian Eloc Throno eventually included a brief mention of Gannaria in his book Traveler's Guide to Batuu.[2]
