, the star from the X-Wing: Rogue Squadron
book series is also a Corellian native and former CorSec
Furthermore, Corellia is/was (for the most part of the Star Wars timeline) under the Diktat, something of a dictatorship (there is only one political party). During the time of the Galactic Empire, Corellia was still independent under the Diktat's rule, though the government sided heavily with the Empire. Therefore Imperial liasion officers were not uncommon within the government services.
Corellians are notoriously known to give bantha s*** about odds.
Oh, and when on Corellia, be sure to buy a couple bottles of the local whiskey, Whyren's Reserve. Just don't get caught smuggling!
