From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.
The Arkanis sector was a sector located in the Outer Rim Territories. Planets in this sector included Andooweel, C-Foroon, Sirpar, Arkanis, Najiba, Geonosis, Piroket and Tatooine.
The Arkanis sector has been a crossroads for traders and travelers. It is bordered by the Corellian Run which many used to travel from the Core Worlds to the Outer Rim and Wild Space. It was also crossed by the Triellus Trade Route, which led into Hutt Space. A subset of the sector were the Regency Worlds, a relatively prosperous region on the Corellian Run formed around the former Arkanis Regency. Unfortunately, this prosperity rarely extended to other parts of the sector, with only a mild boost in trade (and a significant one in crime) as Hutt interests moved in towards the end of the Republic.
During Imperial rule, it was governed by Moff Alexander Julstan. At some point before the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY, the Empire ceded control over the sector to the Rebel Alliance. They later attempted to reclaim the territory, but were thwarted on Tatooine, at least. Nieve Gromia was a later moff of the sector following the Sith-Imperial War.
Behind the scenes
The name of the Sector Arkanis is similar to the proper name of the World Dune from Frank Herbert's novels, Arrakis. This is most likely an homage to Herbert as the sector is home to Tatooine.
