Outer Rim

The planet was located less than one parsec from Tatooine. In many ways the planet was similar to Tatooine, in that it was a rocky, desert world. One notable difference was that the planet had large and dense rings in orbit. When Jango Fett was being chased by Obi-Wan Kenobi (in Episode II), he flew directly into the rings to lose Kenobi amongst the rocks that made up the belt. In George Lucass Star Wars saga, Tatooine is the home planet of the Skywalker family, the setting for much of the action in the sagas films (as well as several of the novels and other pieces of written fiction) and one of the most iconic Star Wars planets. ...

Much of the planet's architecture consists of domes and buildings built into caverns and rock spires, that look similar to termite mounds. Its most dangerous creatures are massiffs, dog-like lizards that, in every book they are mentioned in, seem to have a tendency to fall off cliffs. In addition to these, Geonosians keep larger creatures in captivity for use in their arenas. Examples include acklays, reeks, and nexu.
