Originally founded as “Czerka Mining and Industrial,” this centuries-old, galaxy-spanning corporation has diversified into businesses ranging from consumer food products to military weapons. It is one of the wealthiest and most successful economic enterprises in operation, conducting commerce on virtually every civilized planet and‒as owner of multiple star systems and employer of several billion individuals‒has representation in the Republic Senate.
Czerka is unique in being able to negotiate trade agreements with the Hutt Cartel and other independent worlds, crossing political borders with impunity to generate staggering profits. Despite the company's perceived lack of loyalty, no one can afford to stop doing business with Czerka. “Anytime, anywhere… we're there” is the corporation's slogan‒a motto that unscrupulous opportunists eagerly endorse.
