Columex is the Capital of a Confederacy of Nine Sectors called the Commonality. A major trade-planet at the intersection of two hyper-space lanes, this world has a long history of aggressive mercantilism. The Galactic Empire has recently taken control of many elements of Columexi life and the local Government is now mostly ceremonial titles. Traders and wealth truly rule Columex, the busy space-lanes above the planet are a life-line connecting the wild Outer Rim Territories to civilization.
A number of Galactic Institutions, Guilds and Corporations are represented here, although some have had their assets seized and are considered recently defunct. The Commonality declared for the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars, and so many have faced Imperial reprisals in the aftermath and the fall of the Galactic Republic.
