The Sanyassa system was located in the Outer Moddell systems of the Moddell subsector, one of the subsectors making up the Inner Zuma Region within the Outer Rim Territories' Zuma sector. It lay on the hyperlane known as the Bakura Trace, which connected it to the Endor and Ast Kikorie systems.
The system contained the planet Sanyassa IV, a lawless world that was the homeworld of the Sanyassan species. Sanyassa IV occupied the fourth orbital position of the system, took 389 local days to complete one orbit, and was home to one billion of its natives. By 3963 BBY, at least one Sanyassan, Bar'injar, had made his way beyond Sanyassa IV and into the Core Worlds.
