Trading and resource
Akers was the only know source of Flower Crystals in the galaxy. It was grown from a mutated flowering plant that grew abundantly on the surface. Even if the actual plant was grown on other planets, it did not produce the crystals. It was widely theorized that the planets high radioactive content to have at least some part in the crystals origin.
For this reason the mining of the surface was forbidden, forcing for all minerals resources to be imported. The expanse on import would be balanced by the fact that they did not import any nutrients with abundant crops generating enough to feed the entire heavily populated world.
