- "My empire is forever! My empire cannot end!"
- ―Karina the Great
This Geonosian empire, also referred to as a hive, was ruled by the Queen Karina the Great on the desert planet Geonosis. One Karina the Great ruled Geonosis during the Clone Wars, before being killed in 22 BBY during the Second Battle of Geonosis. Another Karina the Great served as the queen of the red-desert world after Geonosis was sterilized by the Galactic Empire. This queen, however, was injured by the Empire, and lost the use of her womb.
