In the early days of the Republic, travellers between Boston and New York frequently stopped on Connectyonuts. Colonies were established by both planets in order to provide services to those travellers, and maintain the security of the region. Over time these colonists gained considerable wealth and became increasingly resentful of their larger neighbors. They began to isolate themsleves from the larger Galactic community, and devoting themselves to eating pie and wearing warm socks.
Darth Fagan was from there.
