No-one knows exactly how or when the planet came to be formed. The Seven Nations all have their own creation myths to explain how the world came into being. The Termitians, for instance, believe that all the planets and moons in the star system began life as eggs laid by the very first Termitian Queen.
More questioning minds - of which there are very few - have tried to understand how the surface of the planet came to be laid out in such a geometric pattern. After all, the planet does resemble a gigantic Soka ball and it seems amazing that this could have happened naturally. There are cults that believe that the planet of Sokator was artificially created by a race of ancient alien super-beings specifically for the purpose of creating a Soka training ground. They believe that one day these alien super-beings will return to see how their experiment has turned out. Only the very best Soka players will be selected to play Soka on the home planet of these super-beings. Most Soka players love the idea of being worshiped and so they are only too happy to play along with the beliefs of these cults.
One of the most striking aspects of the planet is its diverse range of terrains and habitats - mountainous Stratosfear, the jungles ofCamouflage, icy Krystalia, the deserts of Celcius, underwater Reefdom, the marshlands of Swampum, and subterranean Underland.
The environmental conditions in these different habitats seem to have remained constant for millions of years. As a result, the animal- and plant-life in each habitat has evolved to become highly specialised in order to survive. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the seven dominant species of Sokator today - the Grizzies, the Simians, the Felinistans, the Termitians, the Dorsalians, the Swampers, andthe Leatherbacks. Each of these species is unique, especially adapted to thrive in its native habitat.
