Planetary Background and History

    "Coruscant, the capital of the Republic. The entire planet is one big city."
       - Ric Olie

Coruscant, also known as Imperial Center during the reign of the Galactic Empire, was a planet that served as the galactic capital and seat of government of the Galactic Republic and the Galactic Empire, and was the homeworld of the human species. Coruscant was notable for its vast urban sprawl covering the entire planet called Galactic City that was constantly awake as airspeeders and starships moved in the flow of Coruscant's skylane traffic. Skytowers reached far into the atmosphere and, in the most dense areas of the city, hundreds of levels were built on top of each other. The highest surface was Level 5127, and the lowest was Level 1, which was deemed uninhabitable. The lowest levels of Coruscant were called the underworld which had been cut off from the surface for thousands of years, forcing its inhabitants to breathe toxic fumes, and was accessible only by huge portals reaching ever downward.

Coruscant had a cosmopolitan atmosphere, and as the seat of galactic government, it was also the center of galactic culture. Laws and galactic policies were decided by the Galactic Senate, and the Supreme Chancellor had his residence on Coruscant. It was also from Coruscant that Sheev Palpatine established his rule as emperor. After the destruction of the Death Star II by the Rebel Alliance, Coruscant's population rejoiced, overwhelming the planet's stormtroopers and pulling down statues of Palpatine to much accord.

Uscru District
