Aargau was a planet in the Zug system, between Coruscant and Vulpter, near the Corellian Run. It was the headquarters of the Bank of Aargau, which was part of the InterGalactic Banking Clan. Aargau was also the location of the headquarters of numerous other banks and the headquarters of Z-Gomot Ternbuell Guppat Corp., a Banking Clan manufacturer. The Aargau Charter allowed all citizens to carry a weapon for protection.

History

Located on the Arrowhead of the Inner Core, Aargau was discovered by the Republic at the begining of the Great Manifest Period. Remaining with the Republic since its discovery, the world was left largely untouched by galactic wars.

Sometime after 33 BBY, Valara Saar traveled to Aargau while on her journeys through the galaxy. During her short stay on the planet, she embarked on a mission in which her pet Duuvhal Zeev was killed.[2]

During the Clone Wars, Aargau was officially neutral, but clone troopers were sent in to keep it secure nonetheless. It operated the Aargau Medical Observer Corps. The Banking Clan was based in a mammoth pyramid-shaped structure, which was subdivided into seven color-coded levels, one the highest and smallest, seven being the lowest and biggest.

  • Levels 1-3: Banking and precious metals
  • Level 4: Lodging
  • Level 5: Supplies
  • Level 6: Entertainment and Recreation
  • Level 7: The Undercity; dangerous, unregulated free trade

The planet remained neutral during the Galactic Civil War also. Darth Vader stole the Crown Jewels of Alderaan from the world's vaults. During the Imperial Mutiny, Aargau became a New Republic fortress world, and was garrisoned with hundreds of warships. The Battle of Aargau was fought in 10 ABY, resulting in a Republic victory. While spared the destruction wrought by the Yuuzhan Vong War, Aargau was a member world of the Galactic Alliance, Fel Empire, and Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire.

Behind the scenes

Aargau is a Swiss canton near the banking capital of Switzerland, Zurich. Zug, another canton, is the undisputed tax haven of Switzerland.
