Kamino, Tipoca City

This is the Capital of the Confederacy, home to the Clone Army of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Tipoca City is currently the planetary capital city of Kamino and the site of a major cloning facility. Kamino's capital, Tipoca City, consisted of a network of stilt structures that spanned more than a hundred kilometers along Kamino's western equator and was considered by many to be the heart of Kaminoan society. The millions of Kaminoans who occupied Tipoca worked either with the cloning program or with the bureaucracy. No Kaminoans took residence within the city, nor was there any public space.

Nearly all Kaminoans who worked within the city lived in numerous satellite cities situated around the capital. Constant traffic ran to and from Tipoca, as workers, bureaucrats, and many others traveled to and from their homes. The only living space in the city was the quarters of the prime minister and the military staff, and a group of apartments for cloning scientists. The scientists resided in Tipoca in alternating shifts of three months each before returning to their homes and families.

Aside from the governmental and clone manufacturing functions, Tipoca City also served as the seat of both the Kamino Space Control and the Kamino Planetary Defense Forces. Most of the Space Control's data came from the huge communication towers that dominated much of the city's skyline. Largely due to the cloning facilities importance to Kamino, the Planetary Defense Forces were coordinated from Tipoca. The city relied on passive measures (in form of energy shielding) and more "pro-active" turbolaser emplacements. Because the defensive shields provided little protection against troop invasions, the KPD also retained thousands of Kaminoan soldiers in the barracks.

Tipoca City's architecture was influenced by two primary architectural styles originating from Alderaan and Kashyyyk. The concept for the city being built on stilts was derived from the Alderaanian Oversea style. Middle-period Krorral was adopted in the form of the sweeping and centralized dome structures. An additional appeal of the Krorral element was that the rain-sloughing nature of the architecture bore numerous similarities to the first Kaminoan land colonies. Most all of these buildings where accented by high power lightning rods, dotting most platforms, even minor ones. If a rod was damaged, however, and lightning struck the rod, a fundamental design flaw would prompt the lightning rod, and usually the whole platform it stood on, to explode.
