Nimban is an agrarian planet located in Hutt Space. It is largely unscathed by both the incessant industry and pollution which plagues the local sector. The planet itself is a puzzle that archeologists and cartographers have been trying to solve for generations. The mountains contain maze-like rock structures and the forests are so overgrown that it causes many disappearances. With such a varied ecosystem, it can be dangerous for those unprepared to explore it.
Aside from the naturally occurring traps, the planet has hidden away countless other mysteries to be discovered. One notable exception is the native's primary food, the puzzleflower. The plant has evolved an intricate system of loops and cords with its petals and his highly nutritious. However, in order to get to the edible core, one must solve the puzzle, which is unique to each plant. Failure would cause a toxin to be released that kills any creature attempting to consume it. These trials also had a significant impact on the Nimbanese culture.
Due to the Nimbanese people using the puzzleflower as their main food source, they developed a great acuity for mental games. When they finally entered the arena of the Galactic Republic they found themselves bored, as the bureaucracy that stumped other races was elementary compared to their own. When their Hutt neighbors offered them a chance to work for them they gladly accepted. An unusual thing happened in the Nimbanese culture though, as they understood and followed the complex Hutt contract their way of thinking was changed and their reconsidered the role of industry on the planet. In the current era, there has been industrial expansion on a narrow peninsula of the main continent. The site has further developed to serve as training grounds and includes a starport for those Nimbanese who desire to leave and those tourists that think they are prepared for the Nimban wilderness.
