Galactic Basic Standard
- "Your planet—your home—is being drowned in blood! For three thousand years we were loyal to the Republic…the Republic has ignored our cries for help—until they learned that beneath all the mud—our planet has a heart of ore!"
- ―Alto Stratus
Originally known as Gwynhes Minor, the planet was absorbed into Xim's empire as he expanded his borders from the Kingdom of Cron. Jabiim would later join the Galactic Republic in 2,979 BBY, millennia following the fall of Xim's Empire. The planet had paid its dues to Coruscant, but was undefended when tragedy befell the planet. The planet suffered from an outbreak of brainrot plague, which slammed the population of Jabiim. And prior to the Clone Wars, Trandoshan bandits attacked and conquered Jabiim's lands. After the bandits moved on, Lythian pirates attacked the world, seizing small communities and killing many. Despite paying its due taxes to Coruscant and requesting aid, Jabiim received no help from the Republic in any of these cases.

Because of the lack of assistance from the Senate, the Jabiim Congress sided with Count Dooku's growing Confederacy of Independent Systems. Republic agents on Jabiim informed the Galactic Senate that the Congress had been undermined by Separatist influences. In fact, Alto Stratus had orchestrated a coup, killing most of the Loyalist members of Congress. Although he spoke eloquently about the "oppression" of the Republic, many believed these words had been purchased with weapons, supplies, and credits by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Negotiations spearheaded by the Alderaanian Diplomatic Corps were rebuffed as Jabiim geared towards war. Jabiim was a planet that was rich in valuable ores. None of these ores could fall to the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Rather than lose Jabiim and its valuable mines, the Republic decided to retake the world by force. The Republic positioned their strike force on nearby Handooine. General Obi-Wan Kenobi was chosen to lead the attack.
The Jabiim campaign during the Clone Wars was a disaster for the Republic – despite a nominal victory. The Republic was forced to abandon Jabiim, leaving the Jabiimi Loyalists to their fate. Jabiim would never forget the Republic's treachery.
