DC10 – Taris is a highly populated world that is considered by many galactic travelers to be the ‘Capital of the Outer Rim’.
DC15 – Taris is an ecumenopolis, its cities covering almost the entire surface of the planet, similar to other planets such as Nar Shaddaa or Coruscant.
DC20 – Like other city-planets, Taris is divided into multiple city layers, as well as districts. Inhabitants of the Upper-City maintain a luxurious lifestyle, but those in the Lower-City and Under-City live without these comforts, and quite often, in poverty.
DC25 – Taris is the home of Lhosan Industries, one of the foremost manufacturers of speeders and swoops. As such, swoop racing is one of the most popular cultural events on the planet, and is home to the Galactic Speeder Racing Championship. The Galactic Speeder Racing Authority oversees the championship race, as well as many other minor-league speeder and swoop races across the planet.
DC30 – Whole districts of the Under-City have been quarantined to prevent the spread of the Rakghoul Virus, a mutative genophage. Rakghouls (those transformed by the virus) have plagued Taris since the virus was introduced to the planet during an ancient war between the Galactic Republic and the Sith.
