Imperial territory G5-623 was an Imperial territory that consisted of the occupied Mid Rim planet of Kashyyyk, whose Wookiee population had been enslaved with inhibitor chips. Following the Battle of Endor, it became an isolated but self-sufficient Imperial remnant that broke off from the Empire. Imperial territory G5-623 ceased to exist after the liberation of Kashyyyk by the New Republic in 5 ABY.
During the Age of the Empire, the Galactic Empire invaded and enslaved the Wookiee population of Kashyyyk. Following the Battle of Endor, Imperial territory G5-623 became an isolated but self-sufficient Imperial remnant led by Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck, who controlled the Wookiees with inhibitor chips. Like Governor Adelhard who ruled another Imperial remnant in the Anoat sector, Tolruck propagated the myth that Emperor Palpatine had survived the destruction of the second Death Star. Tolruck's remnant did not fall in line with the Imperial forces commanded by Grand Admiral Rae Sloane and Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax and managed themselves independently.
Due to a drop in demand for Wookiee slaves, Tolruck and Commandant Theodane Sardo toyed with the idea of farming the Wookiee population as meat. However, Tolruck and his Imperial forces were defeated in 5 ABY during a mass uprising inspired by Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Sinjir Rath Velus. The remaining Imperial forces capitulated when New Republic forces under Admiral Gial Ackbar, Princess Leia Organa, and Captain Wedge Antilles liberated the system. Wookiee and New Republic subsequently conducted mopping-up operations against Imperial holdouts on Kashyyyk including Commandant Dessard's camp.

- ↑ 3.0 3.1 Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the Battle of Endor during the year 4 ABY. Shattered Empire, Part IV, which shows Shara Bey and Kes Dameron settling on Yavin 4, takes place three months after the Battle of Endor, and Galactic Atlas places Bey and Dameron's move to Yavin 4 in the year 5 ABY.
The novel Aftermath says that months have passed since the Battle of Endor. Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath; therefore, the events of the former take place at least four months after the Battle of Endor. Since three months after the Battle of Endor is part of 5 ABY, as shown with Bey and Dameron's settling on Yavin 4, events of Life Debt must take place in 5 ABY at the earliest. On the other hand, the Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, leading to the conclusion that Life Debt is set in 5 ABY.
