Nal Hutta

A bruised-looking green, blue, and brown planet in the Y'Toub system, the planet's name means "Glorious Jewel" in Huttese. It is one of the main planets settled by the Hutts after they left their ancestral home of Varl. Despite the planet's immensity, its extremely low density gives it a tolerable gravity.

Many years ago, the planet was known as Evocar, the homeworld of the Evocii. When the Hutts arrived, they traded technology to the Evocii in exchange for land, eventually buying up the planet and forcing the Evocii from their homeworld. The Old Republic relocated the displaced Evocii to the nearby Nar Shaddaa moon, but they fared no better there. Once the Hutts controlled the entire planet, they replaced all Evocii structures with Hutt palaces and shrines and renamed the planet itself.

Nal Hutta was once a pleasant world of mountainous rain forests, but Hutts have transformed it into a gloomy planet of stinking bogs, stagnant scum-covered puddles, and patches of sickly marsh grass inhabited by insects and spiders. The planet's flocks of large, clumsy birds are shot down by swoop-riding hunters. The atmosphere is polluted by strip-mining in Nal Hutta's industrial centers, and a greasy rain drizzles on its squatters' villages and ghettos.

Nal Hutta and its moon, Nar Shaddaa, are at the center of Hutt Space and host a constant traffic of freight haulers, smugglers, and other galactic traders. The planet is ruled by a council of the eldest members of the Clans of the Ancients, the oldest Hutt families. The world's population consists of nearly seven billion inhabitants, three billion of them Hutts.
