Risa, also known as the "entertainment planet" or "pleasure planet", was located in the Tarameanian Sector in the Outer Rim Territories.
Culture and ClimateEdit
Mostly a dismal, barren, and geologically unstable planet covered with vast mountain ranges and plagued by violent earthquakes, the settlers partially terraformed their world with vast jungles and large lakes and used a technologically sophisticated weather control network that provided nearly constantly desirable weather, and seismic regulators to eliminate the geological instability for optimum tourist comfort. By at least 22 BBY, Risa had become known for its beautiful tropical resorts and abundance of pristine beaches making it a popular tourist destination in the Outer Rim.
Risa was most noted for the frank and open sexuality of its native population. Identified by a decorative emblem on their foreheads between the eyes, Risians often initiated or responded to the desire for sexual relations through the use of a small statuette called a horga'hn, the Risian symbol of sexuality or fertility. Display of a horga'hn announced that the owner wishes to participate in jamaharon, a Risian sexual rite.
