"Bespin is a gas giant, which means we have no oceans or lakes."
Jude Edivon[src]
Cloud City

Cloud City was located in the skies of the gas giant Bespin.

Gas giants were large and massive planets composed chiefly of various gases.[1] They had no solid, well-defined surface,[2] which rendered them uninhabitable in themselves,[3] but at least some of them had a large number of moons.[4][5] Typically, gas giants harbored little life unless their atmosphere comprised a layer capable of supporting oxygen-breathing species.[6] Another characteristic of those worlds was the presence of planetary rings made up of several million pieces of debris.[7] In some cases, those debris were rocky in nature and rich in ore.[4]

Due to their significant masses, such planets had gravity wells that created distinct, if minor, hazards for hyperspace travel. Under certain circumstances, a particularly enormous gas giant could become a star in its own right.[1]

Bespin,[8] Endor, Jestefad, Lefrani,[9] Galaan,[5] Hudalla,[7] Pujool,[10] and Yavin were all gas giants. The feature that distinguished Bespin from most of its sister planets was the existence of its oxygen-rich Life Zone, which possessed an unusual abundance of life forms.[6]
