Arkania was the capital of the First Arkanian Dominion.

A frozen planet of tundra, Arkania is a little-known planet most notorious for its unsavory populace, comprised mainly of criminals and smugglers. It was not always that way: the planet used to attract miners seeking to profit from the mineral deposits present, as incredibly large diamonds were mined beneath its crust. Such treasures no longer exist, however, as the mines have long since been depleted. Deep within the wilderness there was also once a Jedi training center run the powerful Jedi Master Arca, but it has been deserted for centuries. Local legends claim the ice-clad ruins to be haunted, but most sensible people dismiss such rumors. Arkanians are a intellectual people and their planet is host to many galactic dejarik tournaments, as well as produces some of the game's most notable champions.
