A rich mining world on the Kismaano Bypass, Kismaano had been part of the Kingdom of Cron and Xim's Empire, and by the era of the Galactic Empire it was a member of the Cronese Mandate. Throughout its history, it had always stood apart from the rest of Cron, which had never trusted the planet's merchants.
A windswept world, Kismaano's oldest settlements were built into the sides of canyons and rifts. These cliffside dwellings had been tourist attractions for millennia, and were noted to be similar to those on Zonama Sekot.
