Colonized during the era of the Old Republic, there are a few villages still hidden within the massive plant growth. Barely noticeable from orbit, the long standing colony enjoys yearly activities that include festive dances and games. The few inhabitants that have moved off planet are often surprised to discover the rather chaotic state that the galaxy is in. The colonist of Omwat are believed to be have exceptional mental abilities, learning anything put before them quickly and with little difficulty. Most off-world Omwat colonists can be found in the fields of research or within the area of education, teaching others the things that they have learned.
Visitors to Omwat are encouraged to take guided tours of the forests and jungles, getting a chance to see the beauty hidden from space by the treetops. Trade ships arrive weekly carrying supplies the colony occasionally needs and to pick up some of the few exports that Omwat holds claim to. While a few corporations have offered to set-up shop and bring more revenue to the planet, all have be quietly denied as the inhabitants enjoy the quiet and peaceful, if not naïve, lifestyle of being detached away from the majority of the galaxy's problems.
