Raxus was a lush world in the Outer Rim Territories' that served as the capital planet of the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone wars. Raxus had a temperate climate and was covered with oceans and landmasses. Since the Separatist Senate was headquartered within its capital city of Raxulon, Raxus became home to a number of Confederate senators, including Mina Bonteri of Onderon. Other major Raxian cities included Tamwith Bay, which was located a considerable distance from Raxulon.
Raxus was a contested world throughout the Clone Wars, and its strategic importance led the Separatist navy to blockade it to oversee security for incoming travelers. Nevertheless, Republic Senator Padmé Amidala and JediPadawan Ahsoka Tano, seeking to meet with Bonteri, were able to smuggle themselves onto Raxus aboard a transport from a neutral star system. Count Dooku, the leader of the Confederacy, visited Raxus for various events, and it was during one such award ceremony that Jedi Master Quinlan Vos and bounty hunter Asajj Ventress launched a failed attemptto assassinate him. After the war, Raxus found itself in the crosshairs of the Republic's successor, the Galactic Empire, which committed the so-called Antar Atrocity to pressure Raxus and other worlds into surrendering all former Separatists to Imperial custody.
