The Core Worlds , also known as the Coruscant Core , the Core systems , or simply the Core , was the area of the galaxy that bordered the Deep Core and contained some of the wealthiest and most prestigious planets. Coruscant , the galactic capital during the time of the Galactic Republic and subsequent Galactic Empire , was located in the Core Worlds. Citizens from the Core Worlds were stereotyped as being snobs, rich, and speaking with a clipped, practiced accent.
Core World design emphasized freedom of customization, which showed in the modular construction techniques of Core-built ships. Although it was disputed, Coruscant  —an ecumenopolis located in the Core Worlds region of the galaxy  —was generally considered the homeworld of the human species.
Due to Coruscant's importance to galactic society and the economy, it held the coordinates on all standard navigation charts. In the ancient past, the Sith built a shrine on Coruscant during their period of galactic domination. Later, the Jedi built their temple on the foundations of the former Sith shrine.
One important Core-based ship manufacturer was Kuat Drive Yards , which supplied vehicles and starships to both the Galactic Republic and the Galactic Empire. The vibrant heart of galactic politics and culture, Coruscant was the capital of the galaxy for over a millennium.
When the Galactic Republic was formed  about one thousand years before the onslaught of the Clone Wars ,  the Core Worlds became ravenous. They were granted permission to settle new planets and establish trading colonies, either by cutting deals with indigenous populations or simply by overrunning them.
Dissatisfaction with Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum 's handling of the Naboo Crisis brought about his political demise and contributed to the ascension of Naboo Senator Sheev Palpatine to the Chancellorship. The battle ended in the death of the Separatist political leader Count Dooku.
Alderaan was a member of the Core Worlds noted for its influence and peaceful ways. In the later period of the Clone Wars, the Separatists invaded the Core planet Anaxes, which hosted a major shipyard for the Republic Navy. This allowed Anaxes to continue produced warships for the Republic war effort. Shortly later, Palpatine dissolved the Republic and proclaimed the establishment of the first Galactic Empire.
After a thousand years of democracy, Coruscant became the center of Imperial rule. During the Imperial Era, the Empire encouraged skilled agricultural scientists like the Leonis family and computer experts such as the Spanjaf family to move from the Core Worlds to Outer Rim worlds such as Lothal ; where the Empire had embarked on an ambitious industrial program. Some Core World migrants like Leo Leonis looked down on their Outer Rim counterparts as unsophisticated and small-minded.
By 13 BBY , the planet Corellia was a faded industrial world that manufactured warships and starfighters for the Empire. At some unknown point, the Core planet of Anaxes was destroyed in a cataclysmic event. The planet was reduced to an asteroid field which included the former Republic Military base Fort Anaxes. Fort Anaxes was situated on the asteroid PM Alderaan's destruction preceded the Emperor's decision to abolish the Imperial Senate and to transfer powers to regional governors.
Despite the Emperor's intention to use the Death Star to rule the Empire through terror,  Alderaan's destruction only increased support for the Rebellion. During the Imperial era, the Corellian Resistance operated on the planet Corellia. As a result, the planet was designated a target of the Empire's second Death Star. Heavy-handed police action led to rioting which eventually descended into an armed insurrection  and civil war.
After two decades of Imperial rule, the people of Coruscant rejoiced at the death of the Emperor. Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax , who had assumed control over the scattered Imperial remnants, ordered Imperial forces not to relieve Coruscant because he regarded it as a symbol of decadence. Meanwhile, the New Republic gained control of the HoloNet and encouraged the formation of new broadcasters such as the Queen of the Core Network.
The New Republic also used the wreckage of the Death Star to help the Alderaanians build a new space station as their home. New Republic forces under Admiral Ackbar and Commodore Kyrsta Agate later led a successful attack on the planet Kuat, which led to the surrender of Imperial forces there and the capture of Kuat Drive Yards. A month later, the Imperial-Republic peace talks were scheduled to take place on Chandrila.
However, the talks were derailed by the attack on Chandrila , which saw numerous New Republic officials killed and wounded. In the month following the Battle of Jakku , the Empire developed into a rump state that was confined to predetermined areas under Imperial sovereignty in the Core Worlds and the Inner Rim. The Galactic Concordance also ordered the Empire to cede the former galactic capital Coruscant to the New Republic and to dissolve itself.
To ensure that all worlds had an equal say in the governance of the New Republic, the Republic rotated its capital between member worlds.
The Centrists advocated a stronger central government and a stronger military. The upmarket planet of Harloff Minor was near Coruscant. The Hosnian Cataclysm was witnessed by many people across the galaxy. In response, the Resistance attacked and destroyed Starkiller Base. Ultimately, the two arrived to the battle at Exegol with a massive combined allied fleet to reinforce the Resistance, helping them decisively win the battle.
