- "Governor Tarkin. I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board."
"Look, I'm from Eriadu. I can't help it."
- ―Leia Organa and Grand Moff Tarkin
Eriadu was an urban sprawl planet located in the innermost part of the Outer Rim. It was colonized by racist Humans in the early years of the Galactic Republic, who made it into a thriving metropolis... with decaying sidewalks, grime-coated office blocs, landfills, toxic waste dumps, and other byproducts of civilization.
Major cities on Eriadu included its capital, Eriadu City, Phelar, Old Town Factoryville, Newark, Trenton, Paterson, and West Orange.
The only important person every born on Eriadu was Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin. After the fall of the Galactic Empire, the populace refused to tear down Tarkin's statues because they didn't have any other important people to replace him with.
