Star Wars: Enemy of the Republic - Dark Side
Coruscant , also known as Imperial Center or the Queen of the Core, is a planet located in the Galactic Core. It is generally agreed that Coruscant was, during most of galactic history, the most politically important world in the galaxy. At various times, it was the capital of the Galactic Republic and the Galactic Empire. In controlling Coruscant, these governments controlled most of the galaxy in the process.
Over the centuries, Coruscant had developed into an ecumenopolis. The actual planet-wide metropolis of Coruscant was called Galactic City. Under the Galactic Republic, the names Republic City or the City of Spires were also used to reference the city. It was also called Imperial City under the Galactic Empire. However, in practice, Galactic City and its other names were sometimes applied to the Senate District, the central government center and de facto capital of Coruscant.
