Corellian System

The Corellian System, the most important in the Corellian Sector, contains five inhabited worlds collectively referred to as the Five Brothers. Corellia, Selonia, Drall, Talus, and Trallus all are believed to have been transported through hyperspace to their orbits by the ancient Centerpoint Station. All are believed to have a planetary repulser beneath the planets. Corellia, Selonia, and Drall orbit the system star, while Talus and Trallus orbit Centerpoint Station like moons, with Centerpoint Station orbiting the star. The Corellian System is part of the Core Worlds of the Galaxy.


Centerpoint Station, with a circumference of 350 kilometers, is larger than the Death Star. In many ways the station is a miniature Dyson Sphere. Built before the invention of artificial gravity, the station spins on its axis. Inside the station is hollow, with an inverted city and artificial farmland and other turf. The inhabitants call their reverse city Hollowtown. An artificial interior "sun" is suspended in the center of the station and is known as the Glowpoint. The station has been discovered to have the ability to target and destroy worlds and suns in other parts of the galaxy, and has been and will be used for this purpose. Diagram of an idealized Dyson shell of 1 AU radius A Dyson sphere is a hypothetical megastructure first described in 1960 by the physicist Freeman Dyson. ...


Humans are found throughout the system, but the Drall are native to Drall, and Selonians native to Selonia. There has been much tension between the three species, with the humans based on Corellia claiming overlordship over the entire system. Despite this, the Drall and Selonians maintain cultural independence and numerical dominance on their homeworlds. Talus and Tralus have human populations that claim a degree of independence through Fed-Dub, or Federation of the Double Worlds. In the last days of the old Republic, Moff Fliry Vorru governed the entire Corellian Sector from Corellia and was known to allow smugglers to come and go as they pleased.Corellia has a third capital city named New Bestine.


Planet Corellia

Corellia is dominated by rolling hills, thick deciduous forests, lush corn-yellow fields, golden sun-set beaches, and large seas. With most of the famed manufacturing centers in orbit, the planet largely remains rural and undeveloped. Urban blight is virtually non-existent, and most Corellians live in small towns or farming communes. The largest cities are the capital Coronet, the touristy Kor Vella, and in the mountains, Daoba Guerfea and Bela Vistal. Han Solo, one of the heroes of the Galactic Civil War, was born on Corellia. Deciduous means temporary or tending to fall off (deriving from the Latin word decidere, to fall off). ... Han Solo (born 29 BBY), a character in the fictional Star Wars universe, is played by Harrison Ford in the Star Wars movie series. ...


Coronet is the capital city of the planet. Often referred to as "The Jewel of Corellia", Coronet is a bustling urban metropolis. It is a technologically advanced city with beautiful architecture, but its urban development pales in comparison to that of Coruscant. Coronet never appeared in the Star Wars movies, but is featured in the Star Wars Expanded Universe and in the MMORPG PC game Star Wars Galaxies. It is also the setting for one mission in Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Coruscant (pronounced //) is the name of a fictional planet in the Star Wars universe. ...

Corellia is a commercial and manufacturing center. Home to multi-stellar corporate conglomerates, many of which compete directly with the Trade Federation and Banking Guild for galactic influence. With trade and corporate profits driving much here, Corellians are all working for one or another company. Over time the companies became so powerful they overthrew the historic parliamentary constitutional monarchy (the Royal House of Razur, ca. 150 BBY) in favor of a government more supportive of the needs of commercialism. This corporate government was called the Diktat, which may mean a person and/or a council. The Diktat and government in general makes it easier for the corporations to train and employ Corellians. These companies house, feed, entertain and direct their employees through their tenure of employment (usually life-long), though technically each employee is a free Corellian citizen. A constitutional monarchy is a form of monarchical government established under a constitutional system which acknowledges a hereditary or elected monarch as head of state. ...

In the months leading up to the Clone Wars, Corellian Senator Garm Bel Iblis withdrew his planet from the galactic community in protestation of the Military Creation Act, using a little known clause in the Corellian constitution.
