Saskapeg was the capital city of the Mid Rim world of Cadinth and its government, the Cadinth Oligarchy. In 22 BBY, when the Galactic Republic was chafing with a militant separatist faction, the Oligarchy took the Republic's side. That changed when a pro-Separatist uprising occurred in Saskapeg, leading to the death of Jedi Knight Bodis-Ker Vitan, the planet's Watchman. The incident prompted the government to withdraw the planet's support of the Republic, with Prime Oligarch Rankwin Fopow later recalling those statements and declaring it was "firmly undecided" between the groups.
