The Core Worlds (Also known as the Galactic Core and, during the time of the Empire, the Imperial Core) are some of the most prestigious, well-developed, well-known, least politically restrictive and heavily populated planets in the galaxy. The Core is the hub of galactic culture, finance, technology, education, and fine arts. Noble houses hold a great deal of influence in this region and almost every interstellar company has offices or are headquartered in the Core Worlds. In astrophysical terms, The Core denotes the central area of the galaxy, and in broad terms this was true enough, but the precise usage of the term was often more complex.
