Lanos was a member world of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. Around 22 BBY, it was attacked by the Confederacy of Independent Systems and became the subject of propaganda on the Republic's HoloNet News, which claimed that the Separatists were liberating it from a "crushing servitude to the corrupt and decayed Republic."
