Aquilaris was an aquatic planet located in the Sanbra sector of the Outer Rim Territories. Once a flourishing resort world, the planet's economy largely revolved around podracing events by the time of the end of the Golden Age of the Galactic Republic.
Travel between cities and islands was facilitated by underwater tunnels, constructed primarily of transparisteel, which provided a view of the underwater vistas and the aquatic fauna imported from Naboo. By the time of the Invasion of Naboo, Governor Nave Vengaris encouraged podracing and the economic boom it caused, converting many of the old and abandoned floating cities into tracks. By this time, the old capital city was left in ruins and sinking beneath the waves.
