Tatooine is a planet on the outer rim of the Star Wars galaxy. It is a desert world with very little in the way of water (which was not always the case acording to EU material), but still supports an ecosystem including Wamp Rats, Krayt Dragons, Dewbacks, and two species of sapients -- Jawas and Tusken Raiders -- as well as having a small population of Humans and other lifeforms.
Tatooine is a backwater with little government. Slavery is legal, and the biggest holders of power are organized criminals, one of the most important being Hutt Crimelord Jabba Desilijic Tiure. Tatooine is notable for being the homeworld of Darth Vader and his son Luke Skywalker, as well as the site of several events in four of the six Star Wars movies.
