While early Sullustans were limited to occupying inactive lava tubes and natural caverns, their engineering prowess has tamed their hostile environment. Sullustan cities have nothing to fear from volcanic eruption: shunts divert lava to the surface after passing through geothermal energy collectors. The abundance of lava provides for most of Sullust's energy needs, and shielded geothermal power plants speckle the surface to power the lights of underground cities.
The Sullustans run SoroSuub Corporation, one of the largest corporations in the Galaxy. While SoroSuub exports a variety of products throughout the galaxy, it also manufactures and sells almost all consumer goods on Sullust and employs ninety percent of Sullust's workforce. SoroSuub enjoys a vertical monopoly: it mines, designs, manufactures, transports, and even sells its own products throughout the galaxy. As a result, Sullustans are a common sight almost anywhere, most often transporting SoroSuub goods to far-flung worlds.
While SoroSuub has long dominated Sullustan society, by the time of the Clone Wars it was powerful enough to mandate joining the Separatist cause over the objections of the government, known as the Sullustan Council. When the Separatists collapsed, the company quickly reformed itself, becoming a staunch supporter and ally of the Empire. As many Sullustans opposed the Empire, SoroSuub dissolved the Sullustan Council and took direct control of the government.
A significant percentage of Sullustans continue to oppose the Empire. The human-centric attitudes and actions irritate and anger the Sullustans. Their opposition to these attitudes and totalitarian policies is slowly influencing SoroSuub decision-making. However, some are unwilling to wait for corporate minds to change and are establishing resistance groups of their own.
Sullust is a volcanic world on the inner edge of the Outer Rim, in the Trailing Sectors bordering the Western Reaches. The noxious surface of ash, lava, and toxic gases make Sullust an unlikely home for intelligent life, but the native Sullustans evolved in an underground ecosystem.
The atmosphere is a roiling mix of noxious clouds and gases. The gax mix in a given area may change radically depending on the winds and the density of the substances involved. Those who venture onto its surface are advised to carry breath masks at the very least, and fully enclosed environmental protection suits in the worst areas.
The Moons of Sullust
- Umnub: Barren and largely abandoned, Umnub was once a major source of raw materials for SoroSuub but it has long since been tapped out.
- Sulon: Sulon bustles with activity, and its spaceport dwarfs those on Sullust. Most of Sullust's food is grown on Sulon and shipped down to the planet. SoroSuub maintains a lavish retreat near the spaceport for business meetings with offworlders. The potential loss of life threatened by a subterranean ordnance accident on Sullust prompted SoroSuub to move certain high-risk operations to Sulon. Weapons manufacturing and testing facilities occupy what little land isn't used for agriculture.
