Lothal is a planet in the Outer Rim Territories of the Star Wars universe. It appeared in Star Wars Rebels. By around 5 BBY, it was in a state of economic disrepair and invited the Galactic Empire on the promise of prosperity and security.
As of "Family Reunion - and Farewell", the planet was liberated from the Galactic Empire by the Lothal rebels. Sometime after the downfall of the Empire and the death of Palpatine; it can be assumed that Lothal became a New Republic world.
There were few options for young citizens on the planet, apart from being recruited to join the Stormtrooper Corps, Imperial pilot flight school, or having to work at the capital's Sienar Fleet Systems factory, building TIE starfighters. During the Imperial occupation of the world, a rebellion began to grow as the local inhabitants grew unsatisfied with the Empire's practices.

- Tarkintown: A small settlement unadvertised by the Empire. Named after Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, and inhabited by farmers who lost their farmlands to the Empire and anyone who tried to fight back got arrested for treason. During the Siege of Lothal, Darth Vader ordered Tarkintown to be burned down, and take the local farmers living their into custody. All that remains now is burnt rubble.
