Varauta is the name of both a star system and a planet in that system.
In 2025 Varauta system was found by human-Zentradi colony ship Megaroad-13. Subsequent details are unclear, but it appears that population of Varuta colony has been brainwashed by Protodeviln, with some turned into soldiers, and others used as living energy batteries. Those brainwashed soldiers were known as the Varauta Army, which was much like the Supervision Army that fought against the Stellar Republic in millennia past. The resulting conflict between UN Spacy forces from Macross 7 and the Protodeviln was known as the Protodeviln War (2045-2046). (Macross 7)
