Sembla was a planet with shallow seas and volcanic islands. There were vast gardens of coral and valuable crystal in the hottest of Sembla's oceans, and these were often targeted by off-world miners. Due to the nomadic nature of its indigenous species, there were few permanent settlements on Sembla.
The Vurks were a nomadic and seemingly primitive species native to Sembla. The primitive nature of the Vurks was belied by the species' highly advanced philosophical traditions, which stress personal freedom, integrity and honesty in all things. As a species, Vurks are empathetic and serene, and they make exceptional diplomats. Despite their peaceful nature, Vurks were capable combatants who see self-defense as an aspect of their own personal integrity.
Sembla was represented by Sweitt Concorkill in the Galactic Senate of the Republic during the Clone Wars. After the Battle of Endor, Sembla remained politically unaligned and was not very involved in the galactic community. As a fortunate result, it was ignored by the Yuuzhan Vong.
Ancient subaquatic ruins have been found along Sembla's equator. These ruins do not appear to have been created by the Vurks, nor do the Vurks have any memories of established permanent settlements.
