The Corporate Sector or "CorpSec" was an independent sector created in order to resolve differences between Galactic Republic lawmakers and the heads of many of the galaxy's largest corporations. It was located in the Outer Rim Territories, at the front end of the Tingel Arm region.
The Corporate Sector was located in the Outer Rim Territories, rimward to the Aparo and Wyl sectors, at the end of the Hydian Way. The sector included thousands of inhabited systems along with more than one hundred thousand uninhabited systems.
The Corporate Sector was formed in 490 BBY to free the Republic lawmakers and the Corporate moneymakers from their differences, after being exiled from the Inner Rim to the Tingel Arm. The Corporate Sector originally had a few hundred systems all devoid of intelligent life. The corporations allowed to operate in the sector could purchase entire regions of space, but were supervised by the Galactic Republic. The Tynnans eventually became a key business partner in the Corporate Sector.
At the close of the Clone Wars, half a dozen Recusant-class light destroyers were sold to the corporate sector. The only other known ships of this class were part of the Alliance Fleet, as well as one being part of a secret Jedi temple.
During Emperor Palpatine's reign over the galaxy, the Corporate Sector expanded to nearly 30,000 star systems, and the Corporate Sector Authority was established to administrate the sector internally. At the time of the Battle of Endor, a huge new palace was being built for Palpatine in the sector; because of difficulties in communications, construction continued after his death, wasting much Imperial money.
After having captured the sectors surrounding the Corporate Sector in 6 ABY, Grand Admiral Zsinj conquered the sector in 7 ABY. Corporate Sector stayed under Zsinj control until his death in 8 ABY.
In 40 ABY, following the Mission to Adumar, parts of the Corporate Sector joined Corellia, Commenor, Adumar, and Fondor in fighting against the Galactic Alliance during the Second Galactic Civil War. In 44 ABY, the Corporate Sector suffered a full slave revolt, as it was happening everywhere else in the Galaxy.
