Nar Shaddaa

Nar Shaddaa is the largest moon of Nal Hutta. More commonly known as the Smuggler's Moon and Little Coruscant, Nar Shaddaa is similar to Coruscant in that its surface is entirely overgrown with city sprawl since 24,500 BBY.

When the Hutts left their homeworld of Varl, they displaced the Evocii, native to Nal Hutta, to Nar Shaddaa. Eventually the moon was annexed by the Hutts, whom started building spaceports and docking bays across its surface, some stretching out into orbit. Over the centuries, Nar Shaddaa grew as an important center of interstellar trade. Ancient refueling spires and loading docks reached out from the native soil into orbit. In between these ports, massive vertical cities grew.

Though Nar Shaddaa was once a prosperous trade center, it lost its glory as the trade lanes shifted. Eventually, Nar Shaddaa became a criminal haven and gained a reputation of being the center of illegal operations in the galaxy. It is now in urban decay with heavy congestion and pollution.

Sections of the urbanized moon's vertical city include the Duros sector and the Corellian sector, which contain three bars popular with bounty hunters: the Burning Deck, the Slag Pit, and the Meltdown Cafe, and another corner tavern called the Orange Lady.
