Markazia was the first world to suffer from Zurgo's plot of revenge against Qwark. Turning off the Planetary Defense Network, Markazia was quickly attacked by Grungarian Marauders. Ratchet, Clank and Qwark; however, arrived and managed to reactivate the defense network, driving the Grungarians away.
Markazia was a highly arid world, much like Veldin of the Solana Galaxy. However, Markazia was unique because of natural bodies of acid pools. These acid pools had attracted GrummelNet, who set up the Korgan Refinery to collect and distill the acid for use in their bioweapon division.
