A Coruscanti was any individual who called the planet of Coruscant his or her home. Such individuals included Letta Turmond, Inspector Tan Divo of the Coruscant Security Force, and Finis Valorum, penultimate Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic. At the end of the Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic was replaced by Sheev Palpatine's Galactic Empire. Coruscant, which had been the historical capital of the Republic, kept its prominent status in the new regime. In the early years of the Age of the Empire, most Coruscanti were satisfied with the regime shift, especially those who lived and worked in the upper tiers of Imperial City. If for no other reason, the Coruscanti were relieved that the devastating Clone Wars were over. However, the self-anointed Galactic Emperor Palpatine made few public appearances, and a number of Coruscanti did confess to having fond memories for ex-chancellor Valorum. Those who identified themselves as Coruscanti often had what some would consider a superior accent, with it being frequently attributed to propaganda broadcasts, rebel satire and the Imperial elite during the Age of the Empire.
