Kaal was a former Rakata colony in the days before the Republic, and since joining became a tropical resort world. Kaal was located in the Kaal system, within the Yushan sector of the Mid Rim region of the galaxy. It was situated on the Corellian Trade Spine, a hyperlane that connected it to Chibias and Dalisor.
A water-dominated planet with a breathable atmosphere, standard gravity and tropical climate, its oceans hosted abundant sea life, including fish and plankton. Archipelagos were present on the surface of Kaal and one such island chain formed a resort city, which contained the world's only starport.
