Coruscant

As the capital to the Galactic Republic, Coruscant has been the political hub of the galaxy for a millennium. It is home to the Republic Senate, Supreme Chancellor, and until just recently the Jedi Temple. The entire surface of planet is one big city. No longer able to grow out, builds continue to be built higher with sky scrapers reaching the upper atmosphere. Although it was the home world of the human species, much of Coruscant's current population consisted of various alien races from across the galaxy.

History

The humans of Coruscant are credited to traveling, exploring, and colonizing most of the known worlds in the galaxy. It is also one of the Republic's original Core Worlds. As early hyperspace lanes became well known around Coruscant and more alien species migrated towards Coruscant, it became the center of the Republic. Despite its wealthy and noble citizens, many residents of Coruscant fail to make ends meet and are forces to join gangs to survive. In the lower levels of this world there is no law.

Under the leadership Naga Sadow the Sith Empire challenged the Republic during the Great Hyperspace war. The outcome of the war left Korriban in ruin and the Sith nearly extinct. Fleeing to uncharted space and under the new leadership of the Sith Emperor, Dromund Kaas was rediscovered. There the Sith Empire was able to rebuild. After a millennia the sith returned to Korriban to retake their home world at the begining of the Great Galactic War.

Near the end of the Great Galactic War the Republic and Empire sent diplomats to Alderaan to start talks of a peace treaty. It was at this moment The Emperor sent his forces deep into Republic space to attack. Known as The Sacking of Coruscant, the Empire took control of this world and destroyed the Jedi Temple and sending the rest of the planet in chaos. This forced the Republic diplomats to agree to unfavorable terms when signing the peace treaty known as the Treaty of Coruscant.

Years after The Sacking of Coruscant, many parts of Coruscant are still in ruins or under control of gangs. The only the parts being secured and rebuilt are governance buildings and trade districts. The Jedi Temple is still in ruin and may never be rebuilt on Coruscant as the Jedi have moved to Tython. Many residents, mostly aliens, feel betrayed by the republic and cause unrest. Just a few levels down and the streets of Coruscant can be as dangerous as any Outrim World.
