Kabalian was the native language of the planet Kabal.

In 22 BBY, month-long riots in the capital city of Shoribus begun due to planet-wide food shortages, and were only ended when the Confederacy of Independent Systems dropped parcels of rations and other food stuff within the city. The Separatist freighters seized this opportunity to voice anti-Republic war propaganda in both Galactic Basic Standard and Kabalian.
