One of two moons within the Sullust system, Sulon is considered an important part of the planet Sullust. Many of the minerals used to help with the construction of the underground cities of Sullust have come from mining the small moon. Additional, rock excavated from the many caverns and tunnels of Sullust is often times placed on the moon's surface. It creates a cycle of sorts as minerals not removed before excavation are often times removed as mining companies on the moon extract them out.
Because of the lack of water on Sullust, the moon's gravity has little effect on the planet itself. Navigation around the moon for hyperspace jumps does give many Sullustans practice for future navigations duties. Because the moon is quickly becoming more of a rock pile from excavations much debris floats free of the moon, creating small fields used by the more adventurous pilots as a training ground within fighters.
A few organizations have offered to help mine the moon in an attempt to take away the sole opportunity from the Sullustans. The Sullustans have proven to be smarter then most sentient species and have denied the opportunity while keeping to the revenue from the planet within their culture.
There are a few rumors claiming that the moon is actually a base for an illegal pirate organization formed shortly after the fall of the Old Republic. Non-Sullustan craft have supposedly been seen flying in an out of the area by governmental forces. While military forces do not regularly patrol this sector, it is doubtful the Sullustans would be foolish enough to allow such an organization so close to their home world.
