Settled during the Dark Age of Technology, the ancient civilization of Galaspar grew distinct and separate from the emerging Imperium of Man. Its surface was covered with massive Hives that rival those found within Segmentum Solar. Outside of the fortified hives, millennia of unbound human population expansion and industrial spoil had obliterated the planet's environment and rendered Galaspar an arid, irradiated wasteland.
During the Age of Strife, Galaspar fell under the control of a tyrannical junta simply known as "The Order," which reduced its population to nameless labor units that were immediately euthanized when they were no longer able to work. The Order maintained its rule through mass terror and spreading addictive substances throughout the population. Thus it was that the people of Galaspar were rendered into humble and meek masses who would quietly obey authority. Soon Galaspar expanded its power, taking control of the surrounding worlds of its system in a pocket empire.
However The Order's rule of Galaspar ended when they refused assimilation into the Imperium during the Great Crusade, firing on Imperial Explorator vessels that attempted to make contact. In the ensuing Conquest of Galaspar, the Death Guard, led personally by Mortarion, obliterated The Order and killed every last one of its defenders, wreaking mass destruction and terror. Since then, the devastated world's population has obeyed the Adeptus Terra, replacing one tyrannical government with another.
