Nal Hutta (Glorious Jewel in Huttese) was the capital of Hutt Space and was located in the Y'Toub system. It was formerly known as Evocar and was the original home world of the Evocii, who were ousted by the Hutts in 15,000 BBY, who migrated from their original home world of Varl along with their servants the t'landa Til. It was sometimes referred to simply as Hutta at around 4000-3000 BBY. The planet was controlled by the ancient ruling Hutt families, who also ruled its moon Nar Shaddaa from Nal Hutta.


Geography and Culture

Chemilizards on the surface of Nal Hutta

Nal Hutta, or as it was originally known, Evocar, was a very large planet, however it lacked natural heavy metals meaning its density was less than that of most worlds. The planet was originally a lush jungle world, though the Hutts eventually transformed it into a polluted and barren wasteland.

Once it became known as Nal Hutta, much of the surface became covered by flat, marshy bogs, stagnant, muddy puddles and patches of sickly marsh grass inhabited by insects and spiders. The atmosphere was also polluted by strip-mining operations and heavy industrialization, and a greasy rain drizzled down on the surface, although not to the extent of Dagobah. Raw materials were constantly strip-mined from the planet's surface and shipped to Nar Shaddaa for processing and export.
The capital city, Bilbousa and the Guarja Shipyards were located on the planet.

The Huttese translation of Nal Hutta into Glorious Jewel stemmed from the nearby massive, radioactive gas cloud, which contained the planet Ganath.

The planet was ruled by the oldest Hutt families, known as the Clans of the Ancients, who watched over the activities of both Nal Hutta and Nar Shaddaa from their homes.



Hutt Empire

Centuries before they ousted the Evocii, the Hutts owned a small province on Evocar. Due likely to their legendary greed, the Hutt's ownership of Evocar continued to grow through business deals where they traded their technology with the relatively primitive Evocii for portions of land.

Old Republic

"In fact, we Hutts know a good deal about remaking worlds. When we arrived here from Varl, for example, Glorious Jewel was not the paradise you see now, but a primitive world of dense forests and untamed seas."
Borga the Hutt.

In 15,000 BBY the Evocii realized their mistake too late, and following the destruction of the Hutt home-world of Varl, the Hutts took ownership of what was their's on Evocar, becoming rulers of the planet, and renaming it to Nal Hutta. Having decided years before that Evocar was a suitable home, the Hutts exploited the Evocii during the technology trades, and had completely bought out the planet from beneath the Evocii. Hutt palaces, amusement parks and other constructions were built all over Evocar, and the Evocii could do nothing about it. The Hutts destroyed the planet's lush mountainous rainforests, terraforming the planet into what they considered paradise.

The Evocii appealed to the Galactic Republic, however the contracts signed were legally binding, and the Republic ruled in favor of the Hutts. The Evocii were eventually evicted by the Hutts, and relocated to the planet's fifth moon, which would later be known as Nar Shaddaa, The Smuggler's Moon. The Hutts then destroyed the remaining Evocii agriculture and whatever was left of the original terrain and then terraformed any (destroyed) remaining patches of land.

When the Evocii were evicted to Nar Shaddaa they were enslaved to build the cities of the moon. Although the Vertical City was only starting to be built, it quickly began to prosper along with Nal Hutta. Five centuries later the entire moon was urbanized and the Evocii were freed of their labor by the Hutts. The Evocii were cast out into the Nar Shaddaa's under-city and began to mutate into savages due to various technologies practiced on the moon.

At that time Nar Shaddaa rivaled Coruscant as the hub of interstellar trade. Sometime afterwards, Nal Hutta and its moon became havens for smugglers, pirates, and other criminals during the unknown year when the the trade lanes shifted.

During the Dark Wars in 3,951 BBY, Nal Hutta was enslaving refugees after buying them from the Exchange in the Refugee Sector on Nar Shaddaa.[4]

Hutta at the time of the Great Galactic War

Great Galactic War

During the Great Galactic War beginning in 3,681 BBY between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic, the Hutts managed to remain neutral, ensuring their world remained exactly as they liked it.

Galactic Empire

During the Galactic Civil War, the Galactic Empire established nominal control over Nal Hutta, but for the most part the Hutt ruling families were left to control day to day affairs, with the Empire stepping in only when searching for Rebel sympathizers or other criminals.

Yuuzhan Vong Empire

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, Nal Hutta was conquered in an orbital bombardment by the extragalactic aliens in retaliation for the Hutts' treachery in 26 ABY. The Y'Toub system was surrounded by several of the Yuuzhan Vong's most deadly warships. Several organic creations were sent to Nal Hutta and its moon Nar Shaddaa for multiple purposes. Different types of bacteria killed most of the inhabitants, before processing their remains into the soil of Nal Hutta. All of the technology on the planet was broken down and also absorbed into the soil, thus turning Nal Hutta into a lifeless barren world. However, the Hutts still remained for two years during the Yuuzhan Vong's rule. The Yuuzhan Vong Vongformed the lifeless barren surface of Nal Hutta (into an unknown result) to suit themselves, resulting in the second complete change of the planet's terrain. This process was ongoing, and the Yuuzhan Vong reached out from the Y'Toub system, swallowing all of Hutt Space, and desolating the Hutt Empire in the process.

As a result, a Hutt underground was formed, and the New Republic raided the world in 28 ABY. The Hutts and the resistance movement abandoned Nal Hutta as their base of operations at the close of the Vong war in 28 ABY, moving instead to the desert planet of Tatooine, a world on which the Hutts historically had a heavy presence beyond Hutt Space.


In 29 ABY, the Yuuzhan Vong abandoned the vongformed planet and moon, prompting the Hutts and the Hutt underground to abandon Tatooine and reclaim Nal Hutta. In 29 ABY, there were also criminals that were fortunate enough to have survived the Yuuzhan Vong War who took shelter on the now Vongformed planet as well as Nar Shaddaa. Like its moon in 40 ABY, it would not openly ally itself with the Five Worlds and remained independent. However, Nal Hutta did join the Confederation during the Second Galactic Civil War, although the Hutts themselves were relatively neutral. Later in the war the Hutts finally joined their fellow criminals, and were absorbed into the Confederation as well.

Behind the scenes

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places Nal Hutta in the Kanchen Sector, which is actually located in the Expansion Region.
