Ianane III was the third planet of the Ianane system located in the Wild Space west of the Core Worlds. Difficult and dangerous to reach, Ianane III had long fascinated scientists due to its brightness, which throughout the ages led to it being mistaken for a stellar companion of the Ianane system's star. However, its brightness was actually caused by sunlight reflecting off the hundreds of meters of glassine sand that coated the planet's surface. Because of its sandy composition, it was also subject to violent, abrasive sandstorms.
The planet was surrounded by a ruined orbital ring called the Ianane Ring, which had its surface features reduced to ash as black as the planet itself was white. The ring was speculated to be a Celestial creation.
