- "I knew it would be crowded on Euceron, but I didn't expect this. At least on Coruscant the traffic is strictly controlled. This is a mess."
"Euceron isn't used to such traffic. Beings come from all over the galaxy to the Galactic Games."
- ―Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi
- "Euceron is trying its best to keep things under control. The leaders of the Ruling Power don't want anything to go wrong. They are trying to gain more power in the Senate, to be put on some very important committees. This is a crucial way to show that their planet is stable."
- ―Obi-Wan Kenobi, to Anakin Skywalker
The government in charge of Euceron was called the Ruling Power, a body that felt underrepresented in the Galactic Senate. They used the Galactic Games awarded them as a means to prove their stability, gain more power in the Senate, and secure positions on certain important committees.
It was during these pre-Clone Wars Games of 26 BBY that 14-year-old Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker won the freedom of Djulla Tyerell (sister of Deland and Doby Tyerell, but a slave to the Dug Sebulba, father of podracer Hekula) by winning a celebrated though illegal podrace in which the further illegalities of rigging and sabotage were made by high-profile members of the Council of the Games.
The former five-game champion of the 33 BBY Games, a local Euceronian athlete and Games Council member by the name of Maxo Vista, was later exposed and summoned before the Ruling Power for conspiring to rig the race, which was held in the Great Dordon Caves. Moreover, had the sabotage attempts of both Vista and Games Council head Liviani Sarno been fully successful, the podrace would have ended in untold spectator deaths. Sarno and Vista, notwithstanding their complicity, were ultimately released from custody, however, when the Jedi failed to produce any key witnesses—one of whom (Bog Divinian) refused to testify against him, while the others were either dead (murdered "timing judge" Aarno Dering) or had fled the planet (information brokers Fligh and Didi Oddo).
