Little is known of Olkarion's history. It is know that Coran had contact with Olkari in the past and the race became famous for their engineering abilities. At some point, the planet fell under control of the Galra Empire when King Lubos agreed to pretend to be held prisoner in return for living in comfort and allowing his people to build a weapon for the Olkarion Commander.
Olkarion is a hospitable planet full of water, green plant life, and a safely breathable atmosphere. It is slightly elliptical in shape and has a ring of mountainous rock protruding from its surface and reaching high into the atmosphere, visible from space; this seems to perpetually cast its upper hemisphere in sunset, leaving its lower hemisphere trapped in the shadow of the mountain range. The planet is covered in a forest of large trees within this shadow. In the upper hemisphere, the Olkari have developed the three large continents into cities, the northernmost at its pole being the largest.
The planet has been seen to have two celestial bodies near it, but it is not clear if these are its moons or simply neighboring planets as they are only shown behind it. It has also been shown situated near a gas giant, suggesting the planet itself is a moon.

- The planet is flipped horizontally between its appearance in Greening the Cube and Stayin' Alive. The second visit to construct the Teludav is when Olkarion appears to be orbiting a gas giant.
