The small world called Druckenwell is a heavily urbanised planet within the Doldur sector, and it is the lone celestial body orbiting its primary. Long ago, the planet was divided between a vast ocean spanning a majority of the northern hemisphere, while the southern hemisphere harboured a massive supercontinent that made up the entirety of the globe’s landmass. Expansive stretches of woodland were spread across most of its surface, along with rolling plains of hills and grasslands that had been home to many species of indigenous grazers and docile herbivores.
Druckenwell was colonised by the peoples of the Core Worlds and Inner Rim many millennia ago. By the time of the Great Galactic War, roughly four thousand years ago, the planet was already an overcrowded world that had fallen under the sway of Darth Vitiate’s Sith Empire. A large battle between the Sith and the Republic had been waged in orbit, which resulted in a resounding Imperial victory and decades of Sith occupation as a result. Eventually, the Republic liberated the planet and saw it become a member world once again, as its population and urbanisation swelled over the course of the millennia that followed.
Today, Druckenwell is a thriving ecumenopolis and an important trade node along the Corellian Run and Reena Trade Route. Its native citizenry - who refer to themselves as Druckenwellians - are governed by a number of corporate guilds that have established an oligarchic executive council as the planetary administration. As a result, corporatism and mercantilism are core elements of the world’s cultural identity, where its citizens are expected to be highly involved in and knowledgeable about the realm of finance and economics. For example, couples intending to marry one another only receive permission to do so if they are able to clearly demonstrate they are financially self-sufficient.
The capital of Druckenwell is the beautiful and gleaming metropolis of Il Avali, where the bustling cityscape is interspersed with well-maintained and carefully manicured gardens and parks where the corporate elite are able to find a moment of respite. Strict anti-pollution laws ensure that Druckenwell maintains its status as a planet of pristine urban beauty, even though the dangers of overpopulation continually lurk in the shadows of its towering skyscrapers.
