Lazeria city was a cosmopolitan city that housed around 40 million people around the time of the Battle of Endor, five million of them being off-world visitors. Huge industrial complexes, which manufactured goods from imported raw materials were located in the outskirts of the city. These facilities were extremely efficient and produced little to no waste.
The Galactic Empire maintained its embassy in Lazeria City, guarded by thirty-six stormtroopers and fourteen men of the King's Own Guard. Besides the ambassador himself, there was only a small staff of eight posted at the embassy. Of the 50,000 members of the New republic resistance, most of them were located in Lazeria City as well.
