Edge of Empire
An ocean planet. During the clone wars, Count Dooku removed their corrupt leader and the population welcomed the separatists. Later a bloody battle was fought where the Republic was defeated.
Now that the Empire is in charge the government is somewhat in turmoil. The population is anti-Empire but has not had contact with Rebellion. The sector moff ran out the hard line separatists and appointed a governor but that governor is lazy and corrupt and has little to do with local politics.
The planet itself is self sufficient but doesn’t produce much for trade goods. In theory they want to be independent but they haven’t yet felt the hard boot of the empire and they don’t have a loud enough voice to attract attention.
