Coruscant all the way!!! I was in absolute amazement when I first saw Coruscant on StarWars Episode 1. Ever since then my ideas about urbanization were radically different. I would absolutely enjoy living on a planet like Coruscant with that low humm/rumble constantly in the background (that sound really made it seem real) and not knowing how far away you are from the real surface must be really cool. Naboo might be good for vacation but Coruscant is my type of planet.

But what about when you've had a stressful day and you just want to chill out on the grass near a river with a nice cold beer? You'll struggle to find anywhere on Coruscant.

Btw, according to Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki, Coruscants population is 1 trillion intelligent species (70% Human, 30% Other)

Coruscant from Space:






I'd still prefer Theed to live tho:

I prefer Naboo, that like European, than Coruscant.

What about Corellia ?

You chill out in your luxury apartment and watch the sunset across the sea of glittering skyscrapers and vehicles moving through the air. I can't wait until I move into a nice highrise. That's very peaceful for me.

I also read somewhere that Coruscant isn't the biggest urbanized planet. There are several other planets that are bigger and much denser than Coruscant especially in something called the Corporate Sector of the galaxy.

You can't choose Theed and not put pictures. Also, you cant live in Alderaan since it was destroyed. Mmmm-k?

They need to do something about the non-human population in Coruscant. They annoy me so much.

Naboo for its beauty, Coruscant for the super dense skyline.

There are too many rainforests in the galaxy, that's the problem.

Coruscant is more impressive, but I couldn't live in a place like that permanently. There is no oasis of nature to escape to. Naboo isn't as amazing, but at least you have both nature and the built form.

One day, in the distant future (I'm not going to do the intro. words for Stars Wars ) architects will probably take more and more (loyal to original design) inspiration from Star Wars. I can easily Naboo emerging in UAE should some tycoon want to spend the money and create the dream-world.
