The planet Hiyiku was a manufacturing world within the Maridis Sector of the Inner Rim territories. It was one of the primary worlds of the Antrixian Commonwealth and governed by the Antrixian Landsraad.
Hiyiku was a heavily industrialized planet, and was home to many different manufacturing concerns. Everything from repulsorlifts to datapads was manufactured here, although there was proportionally much more high tech manufactured on the planet than lower tech items. Hiyiku saw a great deal of freighter traffic, both to bring raw materials and foodstuffs to the planet, and also to transport finished goods to markets elsewhere. Most of this freighter traffic was bulk freighters, and there was very little work to be found for the independent operator. An exception to this rule was the fact that light freighter captains could often find work transporting wealthy industrialists from Hiyiku to different planets. This stemmed from the fact that Hiyiku tended to be less profitable than Geidi Prime or Gixx, and less cosmopolitan than Kaitain or Antrixies. This had lead to a certain inferiority complex among the owners of the manufacturing concerns on Hiyiku, and they often felt the need to take extravagant vacations, hopping from planet to planet at a moment's notice, in order to compensate. This meant that they were often willing to hire a light freighter to serve as a personal transport, since most of them couldn't really afford private yachts.
Hiyiku was also home to some beautiful and quite extensive forests. These forests were made up of trees which were an amazing translucent green in color due to the blue light which fell down upon them from the star Shu. These trees tended to grow very slowly, but their wood was prized throughout the sector. Because of this there was a carefully regulated logging industry on the planet and small amounts of Hyk-wood were exported each year.
