Corellia is a fictional planet in the Star Wars galaxy. It is the homeworld of several notable characters, including Han Solo, Wedge Antilles, and Corran Horn. It is also the planet of origin to Juri Juice a popular Ale throughout the Galaxy. It is the capital planet of the Corellian sector, which included Corellia, Selonia, Drall, Tralus, and Talus. In the days of the Galactic Republic, it was ruled by a Diktat while the sector had a seat in the Galactic Senate.
Centerpoint Station, with a circumference of 350 kilometers, is larger than the Death Star. 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.
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.
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.
Corellia was home to a fortified republic base during the Mandalorian Wars. The Jedi Revan was said to have placed this base strategically in the War to lure in the Mandalorians, dare they come that close to the core worlds, and strike them from a hidden fleet while they concentrated on decimating the surface of the planet. The Mandalorians were defeated before then, however, the base proved a key element in later battles during the Jedi Civil War and long after.
Corellia is a commercial and manufacturing center. Home to multi-stellar corporate conglomerates, many of which compete directly with the Trade Federation and Intergalactic Banking Clan 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.
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.
This attempt at isolation did not succeed and Corellia, like the rest of the galaxy, was soon embroiled in the horror of the Clone Wars. In the Galactic Civil War, Corellia was the site of the Corellian Treaty, which founded the Rebel Alliance.
Corellia is also home to the Corellian Engineering Corporation, one of the larger shipbuilding firms in the Star Wars galaxy. Examples of Corellian ships are the Corellian Corvette an example of which is the Tantive IV, the ship used by Princess Leia in A New Hope; and the YT-1300, the Millennium Falcon.
After the Yuuzhan Vong War, the system tried to avoid aiding other systems' economies, claiming independence yet striving to retain membership in the Galactic Alliance. Diplomatic relations became further and further strained by both the supposed existence of a planetary assault fleet, and the efforts of Corellia's president, Thrackan Sal-Solo, to reactivate Centerpoint Station. Eventually relations became so strained that the Galactic Alliance launched an assault on the system, calling on Jacen Solo and Ben Skywalker to disable the station. After several failed calls for diplomacy, both sides were gearing up to fight.
