Naxyon has become the predominant galactic centre for research and development in the field of medicine. The small continent that is the planet's only land mass has become entirely subsumed by medical research facilities. Hospitals, commercial centres, energy production and almost every other aspect of the planet's needs are provided by a range of large orbital energy processing units and starports.
An enormous range of native sea life provides much of the research potential afforded to Imperial technicians, and the planet is also an exporter of a number of vital medical supplies, including bacta. Native plant life is also abundant, within and without the ocean, though most are highly toxic and none can provide sustenance for non-native species until they have been thoroughly processed.
