Homeworld of the Gamorrean race, this inhospitable planet has been ravaged by the seasonal wars the tribes wage against each other. Composed mainly of swamps and forests of dead trees, Gamorr does not have any ancient cities, as the tribal wars were very vicious and many older habitations have been razed to the ground. Also, spaceports are uncommon, as the Gamorreans don't typically pilot ships, the Star Tours domestic terminal in Jugsmuk being one of the few notable exceptions.
Gamorr is, regrettably, considered one of the poorer systems in the sector. It shares many of the characteristics of other emergent worlds such as a lack of natural resources, wretched amounts of war, and widespread poverty. Few Gamorreans are able to afford formal education and those that do usually ship offworld for a chance at better opportunities.
Gamorreans, as some say, are not all naturally stupid. Years ago, slave trade ravaged 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 dull Gamorreans, causing the guards and slaves spread across the galaxy to present a horrible stereotype.
Gamorreans are not necessarily a naturally smart race. However neither are they naturally dumb. Rather, like all races, they produce brilliant and doltish specimens. In fact, given the intelligence of many more populous races such as humans spread about the galaxy, Gamorreans could be considered a race with an above-average intellect, although that is purely speculation.
The planet however rarely provides great scientists and innovators as, being a backwater world, education is expensive, and few can afford the trip offworld to show others that Gamorreans are not as dumb as they are assumed to be. Rather, most Gamorreans are dim not in their capacity, but in their unfortunate lack of education, furthering the horrible image that has been portrayed of them.
The planet itself is home to many decrepit slums and squalid villages. The districts of today's ecumenopolis are usually nothing more than highly condensed huts banded by a few actual facilities, built upon a muddy foundation and proving to be some of the foulest living conditions in the galaxy, even for a race as tough as Gamorreans. Poverty plagues the planet, and in many cases, the Gamorreans are overweight simply as a result of bloated stomachs caused by infectious diseases and malnourishment.
Galactic relief foundations have generally ignored Gamorr, believing that because they are so isolated, it is not a conspicuous problem. Several attempts have been made to aid the planet in the past. However, most were imperialistic and failed to respect the Gamorreans right to maintain their own distinctive culture, resulting in absolute failure.
