An influential world, Alderaan is a charter member of the Galactic Republic, and one of the planets that was a part of the Old Republic before that. A peaceful world, Alderaan has been without a major war for over 3000 years, and is a model of civilization. Considered to be a Democratic Monarchy, the planet is controlled by multiple royal houses, and each house casts its vote to determine the dominant house for the planet.
A temperate world, it is known for it’s mountain peaks and rolling hills, with warmer climates towards its equator and polar ice zones. It’s native inhabitants are humans with dark hair and eyes, and skin tones ranging from average to olive. An earthly equivalent would be natives of Italy or Spain. Alderaan is a beautiful world, and as close to paradise as any planet in the galaxy.
