Mulatan was a planet located in Hutt Space along the Pabol Hutta. It was a gateway to the Bootana Hutta ("Garden of the Hutts"), location of the throneworlds of the Hutt kajidics. Mulatan was dedicated to the defense of the Bootana Hutta, and was one of the few locations where Hutt warships were commonly found.
Outlanders were encouraged not to linger at Mulatan. It was believed by many outsiders to have escaped the devastation of the Yuuzhan Vong War and to be the source of a rumored biotechnology that allowed the Hutts to resist Vongforming.
