Description

Corellia, populated mostly by humans dubbed Corellians, is a planet with a rich history. Corellians are by their nature adventurers. Although local politicians even until today strongly favor an isolationist style of foreign policy, the innate sense of adventure provides a variety of interactions with outsiders, including the Aqualish-Corellian War in the recent past. Corellian style of lassaize-faire government throughout history gives the Corellian citizens a stereotype of being outlaws, though their acceptance to join the Galactic Empire proved this stereotype false.

Corellia is a beautiful planet with a variety of different landscapes. Landmass consists of two large continents, which are both populated. The capital city of Coronet is a metropolis that boasts some of the finest brewed ales and lagers, the five-star hotels and taverns attracting tourists from all over the galaxy. The bars in the dark alleys, however, are not recommended for the outsiders. Deceit and treachery describe only the surface of what takes place in some of the seedier sections. Other tourist attractions at Coronet include the Coronet City Museum of Art with the complete collection of Venthan Chassus works and the Coronet City Zoological and Botanical Gardens. Corellia University located in Coronet has one of the best Astronautical Engineering programs among all universities in the galaxy.

Corellia is also home to many luxury residences of important political figures or wealthy merchants. Some of these luxurious residences are open to tourist traffic, but most are not. Because of the concentration of the elite class on this planet, there are many hotels on Corellia that are among the galaxy's best. The Grand Corellia, a very high-class hotel found in the center of the sister cities of Coronet, Carrara, and Corona, occupies hundreds of acres of land. Three separate buildings combine to offer guests indoor sports, casino gaming, dance halls, and restaurants manned with some of the galaxy's most talented chefs. While outside of the buildings, there are also many activities available at its pools, hiking trails, or the wild game hunting grounds. Of course, a stay at the Grand Corellia carries a hefty price tag. A night of stay, plus the usual meals and activities, in the famous Imperial Suites of this hotel can cost as much as a typical workers yearly salary.

While the south pole region is formed above a frozen continent, the north pole has no actual land mass. Floating icebergs make seafaring in this region of the high seas especially dangerous in the winter months.

Corellia is perhaps best known for the product of astronautical engineers. Ships designed by engineers of Corellian descent are among some of the most versatile in the galaxy. Ships as the YT-1300, YT-2000, YT-510, and Corellian Corvette, among many others, are some of the highly sought after crafts by both governments and private businesses alike. The Corellian government views engineering education with heavy interest, providing tax-dollar subsidized mathematical programs for school children from a very early age to promote interest in this field. Major ship design and ship building companies from all over the galaxy visit the various universities on the planet of Corellia every year to recruit their top engineering graduates, attracting them with high salaries and generous benefits.

Security

On year 11 day 311 after series of tests designed to determine the functioning of all vital parts, the activation of the Corellian planetary shield was announced to the Galactic population. This shield will protect one of the most important planets in Imperial space from any terrorist attack or criminal incursion the enemies of the Empire may have in plan. It's function: not allowing material mass to pass it's perimeter, thus acting as a protective 'umbrella', that defends key planetary positions from landing parties and planetary bombardment.

The shield was activated by Moff Walter Boole, during a small opening ceremony that was held at the location of the shield's Control Center. To the gathered crowd of Imperial dignitaries and Corellian nobles, Moff Boole held a speech, from which we transmit the key statements.

The shielding itself is part of a wider plan of protecting all Imperial terrestrial holdings, and to provide Imperial citizens the protection they need in this time of Galactic turmoil. Naturally, the first planets to be shielded should be the most loyal and most vital parts of Imperial space, as Corellia. Corellians living on their home world can now feel safe in their homes, well protected from possible enemy actions. Corellians that earn their daily bread on other worlds can now rest assured that their families are safe from danger, protected by the activated planetary shield.

Due to the operational nature of the shield, and the new planetary regulations, all non-Imperial personnel that seek passage to the planetary surface are to contact the Imperial Diplomatic Corps and Vizier Jarek Sankin, while Imperials should contact directly Moff Boole. stating the reasons of their visit. This is, once again, to protect the planetary population from any unwanted visitors, but also to aid Imperial customs officers at making sure that drugs and other contraband ever reaches the planet. This will, hopefully, reduce the already low crime rate, and give Corellians one less thing to worry about.
