One of the last planets along the Sisar Run to be colonized, Sriluur was ignored largely due to its unforgiving environment. When the Huok, a notoriously hardy species, finally undertook a colonization drive, they were met with fierce resistance from the native Weequay tribes.
Although "civilized" by the autocratic rule of the Huok, the Weequay maintained a fiery nationalist fervor for their homeworld, which they believe is granted divine protection - thanks to its proximity to their god "Quay", a close-orbiting moon. Religious doctrine forbids any Weequay from leaving the planet without special dispensation from a shaman, and even those lucky enough to be granted such a privilege are bound by oath to return to the Sriluur temples as often as possible.
In recent years, powerful Hutt magnates from across the galaxy have aided Sriluurian movements, largely out of appreciation for the Weequay's noble sacrifices in the historic Third Battle of Vontor. While meant to empower the local populations, and offer help finding off-world employment, the Hutt influence has also left critics decrying the increase in criminal activity.
