Gamorr is, regrettably, considered one of the poorer systems in the Sector. Home to the Gamorrean race, it shares many of characteristics of other third worlds such as a lack of natural resources, wretched amounts of war, and widespread poverty. Few Gamorreans are able to afford education, and those that do usually ship off planet for chance at a better opportunity in life.
Gamorreans, as some say, are not all naturally stupid. Years ago, slave trade ravished the planet, however the slavers were very selective in which Gamorreans they took as slaves. Being strong and powerful, a smart Gamorrean could prove the death of an abusive slaver, and in many outposts in the galaxy, they did. As a result, slavers tended to only pick the stupid Gamorreans, causing the guards and slave Gamorreans spread across the galaxy to provide a horrible stereotype for Gamorreans.
Gamorreans are not a naturally smart race, however neither are they naturally dumb. Rather, like all races, they produce smart and dumb specimens. In fact, given the intelligence of many more populous races such as humans spread about the galaxy, Gamorreans could be considered an above-average intelligent race, although that is purely speculation.
The planet however rarely provides such intelligence, as being a backwater world, education is expensive, and few can afford the trip off planet to show others that Gamorreans are not as dumb as they look. Rather, most Gamorreans are dumb not in their capacity, but in their unfortunate lack of education, furthering the horrible image that has been portrayed on the Gamorreans.
The planet itself, is home to many decrypted slums and horrible rural villages. The urban cities, are usually nothing more than highly condensed huts with a few actually buildings, build upon a muddy foundation and proving to be some of the harshest living conditions in the galaxy, even for a race as tough as Gamorreans. Poverty plagues the planet, and in many cases the overweight Gamorreans are overweight simply as a result of bloated stomachs caused by infectious diseases and malnourishment.
The Galactic aid companies have generally ignored Gamorr, believing that because they are isolated, it is not a galactic problem. Several attempts of groups have been made to help the planet, however most are imperialistic and result in absolute failure; failing to grasp the idea that Gamorreans have a distinct culture of their own.
