The surface of Valakivir is mostly covered by vast oceans, which are full of varied aquatic life. Deep swamps, dense forests and jungles, and a large glacier region can all be found on this diverse planet. No naturally evolved humanoid species, but large predators developed in the dense jungles, making them a very dangerous place to venture.
Valakivir has one large landmass in the western hemisphere, mainly consisting of a massive metropolis. The city is home to many sentient beings; most of these are displaced Nautolans, who fled their homeworld of Glee Anselm many years ago to get away from the war-plagued planet. The immigrants, led by the Nautolan Society, claimed the planet as a new homeworld for their race, free from the oppression found on Glee Anselm, and began construction on their grand city. The city grew very fast and soon covered a large section of the landmass of Valakivir. The planet's population is steadily on the rise, making it a popular place for immigration and development.
During the Clone Wars, a large-scale water battle took place on Valakivir between the Separatists and the Republic forces. While the result of that battle is unknown, the bottom of the Valakivir oceans are littered with the remains of not only wrecked ships, but also of the fighters that were destroyed high above in the plant's atmosphere during the battle.
