"We have Chief of State Daala to thank for it. Her leadership of the GA has resulted in a resurgence of interest in late Republicana and early Imperial artifacts. As a speculator, one can't go wrong. But the serious collector suffers for it."
―Lestra Oxic, to Koi Quire[src]

Republicana was a term for art and antiques from the period of the Galactic Republic's rule. Natasi Daala's election as Chief of State of the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances led to an upswing in interest in Republicana by collectors and speculators, though devoted collectors such as Lord Lestra Oxic had been pursuing such items well before.
