"Supreme Chancellor, delegates of the Senate, a tragedy has occurred, which started right here with the taxation of trade routes, and has now engulfed our entire planet in the oppression of the Trade Federation!"
Senator Sheev Palpatine[src]

In the last decades of the Galactic Republic, the Free Trade Zones were untaxed trading areas within the territories controlled by the galaxy-spanning government. The Trade Federation often used them in their business. After the Galactic Senate made those zones eligible for taxation, the Federation retaliated by invading the remote planet of Naboo with its private droid force, secretly backed up and manipulated by a malevolent Dark Lord of the Sith named Darth Sidious.[1]
