The Hamar system was home to at least one habitable world, Hamar VII, and (as of 3095) one of four systems within the JàrnFòlk homeworlds, located in the spinward region of the Deep Periphery. It was approximately 771 light-years from Terra in the coreward/spinward direction.[e]
The Hamar system was located in Spinward Sector of the Deep Periphery, close to the border of the Coreward sector and to or partially within the Vela Nebula. The Hamar system consisted of a class K6V primary orbited by at least seven worlds and located close to the Ålborg and Trondheim systems.

Hamar VII—more commonly known as Hamar—was an icy world with a single moon named Jotunheim.
Hamar was settled by the JàrnFòlk because of the large metal deposits and other raw materials located there. The mining communities are dependent on special equipment to generate a livable environment for the workers and on food produced by the farming communities found in the lowlands. While both groups traded intensively with each other, eruptions of violence between the two groups were relatively common.
The population of Hamar shared a common culture with the other JàrnFòlk - named for the Jàrnskib, or "iron ships" that brought them to their new homeworld - which had evolved during the time in which the colonists spent their time as itinerant explorers and traders, fleeing the Draconis Combine depredations inflicted on the Rasalhague Principality worlds. The JàrnFòlk culture was based on the Scandinavian traditions preserved by the original refugees, and the population of Hamar was kept in check by the feuding and rough lifestyle common to the JàrnFòlk. The population was divided between the subsidiary families, descended from the crews of the original JàrnFòlk ships, while the nine ruling families were descended from the command staff of the nine ships.
While the JàrnFòlk language was a blend of several ancient Scandinavian languages, primarily - but not limited do - Danish and Old Norse, Hamar had evolved a distinct dialect unique to itself but comprehensible to the other JàrnFòlk, a situation repeated on each of the other three JàrnFòlk worlds.
Largely covered with ice, Hamar possessed a number of volcanoes that broke through the icy surface.
