Coruscant is the great city planet that serves as the seat of government for the entire galaxy. The city literally covers the entire surface of the planet, making it one of the most visited destinations in the galaxy. Once home to a duly elected Senate and the peacekeeping Jedi order, Coruscant is now seen more as the dark heart of the Galactic Empire, and Emperor Palpatine calls the city planet home. Darth Vader also makes his home here when not traveling the galaxy aboard the Star Destroyer Devastator on a mission to squash the burgeoning Rebellion.
