The Arkanis sector is a space sector featured in the Star Wars mythos. It is located in the Outer Rim territories and comprises thirty-three star systems and literally hundreds of planets. It is named for the planet Arkanis, which serves as its sector capital. The Arkanis sector is a major crossover section for many intergalactic trade routes, several of which traffic in illegal enterprises. [1] Since it is so far away from the Core Worlds, the Arkanis sector does not warrant as much attention from the Galactic Empire as other sectors, which allows it to be dominated by criminal cartels such as the Hutt crime organizations. Some worlds however, including Arkanis have been absorbed into the Galactic Empire. Notable trade routes in the Arkanis sector include the Triellus Trade Route and the Corellian Run. One of the more noteworthy worlds found in the Arkanis sector is the barren desert planet Tatooine. [2] Like many worlds in the Tatoo system, Tatooine was primarily ruled by the Hutts, though the Empire did establish small Imperial garrisons near all of the major space ports.
