Corellia is the capital planet of the Corellian system, which included Selonia, Drall, Tralus, and Talus. It is also the birthplace of smuggler and New Republic General Han Solo and Rogue Squadron pilot and New Republic hero Wedge Antilles.
Collectively, the planets of the system were known as the Five Brothers. As the largest planet and the closest to Corell (The system’s sun), Corellia is often called the “Eldest Brother” or the “Eldest.” Historians believed the Celestials assembled the system artificially, the worlds brought from other parts of the galaxy for unknown reasons. Some believed that these Celestials populated Corellia with Humans from Coruscant.
Corellia’s surface is extremely temperate, dominated by rolling hills, thick forests, lush farmland, golden beaches, and large seas. With most of its famed manufacturing centres lifted into orbit, the planet remains largely rural and undeveloped, with small villages and farming communities comprising the bulk of urban development. The largest cities are Coronet—the planetary capital, the tourist haven of Kor Vella, the double-city Tyrena, and the mountain hamlets of Doaba Guerfel and Bela Vistal. Immigrants from the neighbouring planet of Selonia have constructed an elaborate network of tunnels beneath the planet’s surface. These Selonian Tunnels are used by people of all races as a kind of subterranean metropolis, though the deepest levels are traveled exclusively by Selonians. Space above Corellia is dominated by massive shipyards.
