Okaia is the fifth world of the Eferal System, a binary one, located in the inner Okaia Quadrant of the Lewis Galaxy (which is named after this planet) and thus in Herschel Space. This world is known for being a hot oceanic world with a north ice-pole and several scattered islands all over the planet. However, the oceans of Okaia are rather shallow and not very deep. This allows Okaia to have one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in the Galaxy. The planet is one of the seats of House Zykov, and it's importance has grown exponentially ever since.
The planet is known for several activities, mostly as a center of production and services. However, for most of the early years, the planet based it's economy on farming and fishing. This planet is however known as a center for Luxury and tourism.
The most valuable asset in the world is the Psionic school know as "Maitheren Psiquic School" that focus itself on the so called Maitheren school of though, manipulating liquids and other similar substances from a Thaumaturgic point of view. This has made the world an important center of such knowledge in the empire.
On top of that, the planet is located in the cosmic center of the quadrant, and that's why the quadrant has been named after Okaia.
The planet was colonized in the year 33 031 CE (12 864 ADL), by settlers from Thetis and Mitra. It soon became one of the powerful outer colonies of the Empire due to it's large production of food and pharmaceutical products. The population exploded and in the 33 560 CE (13 394 ADL) it became a stronghold of the Nobility during the Nobility war on the side of the Zykovs who supported the rebellion. They had taken control of the planet in 33 410 CE (13 244 ADL), right before the start of the war.
When the side of the Zykov Family who supported the Emperor took over, the planet was spare although heavily sactioned. It would not be relevant againt till the end of 35 103 CE (14 937 ADL) with the increasing expansion of the outer colonies of the empire and the key position of Okaia on the center of the Okaia Quadrant. This drove many comercial routes and goods to pass through the planet which lead to a heavier importance on Okaia. The Zykovs increasingly tighten their control over the planet to the point where in 37 380 CE (17 214 ADL), they declared Okaia one of their powerseats, building up a magnificent palace for retirement.
During the War of the Two Emperors, Okaia firmly sided with the Kador V side and was a stronghold of Kadorian forces supporting several attacks one of them successful. The Planet was occupied by the Forces of Roldar and Larissa till the end of the War.
At the start of the First Relative's War, the Zykovs sided with Hannakon and the planet followed them. However a rebellion inside the world occured from the supporters of Aranis. This led to a short and brief Civil war, known as the "Okaian Civil War" which was a war within the major conflict. The rebellion was successful and was a key point on making the Zykov betray Hannakon which finally led to Aranis winning the War. For most of the other Civil Wars, the planet remained loyal to the Emperors.
The planet saw very little Unionist intervention due to it's central location within the Empire during the Imperial-Unionist War. However, large battles were fought on the system. Okaia acted as a fierced center of the Zykov to redirect the fate of the war.
Okaia's ideal weather and landscapes has made it a common theme of artistic representation all over the Empire of Utopian paradise life. The Zykovs used the planet to build up some of it's luxury industry and the tourism industry emerged later as a consequence.
