"I was thinking of staying out in the Lake Country. There's some places out there that are very isolated."
Padmé Amidala[4]

The Lake Country was the most isolated[1] area of the planet Naboo. Its population consisted of farmers, shaak herders, and glass craftworkers. A popular vacation spot, visitors traveled to see its waterfalls and open grasslands filled with wildflowers.[1]


A remote retreat made up of a sparse, mainly farmer- and hermit-craftworker–dominated population, the Lake Country's water meadows were populated by flocks of grazing shaak, and rivers that provided the fertile land's waterfalls regularly flooded the area, though it was left dry in summer.[5]

The region, known for its great natural beauty, was located in a valley dotted with numerous lakes and surrounded by mountains. Its lakes were sealed off from Naboo's underground waterways and caverns and thus were safe from large aquatic creatures.[1] The natural heritage of the Lake Country was protected by the Naboo. After the Invasion of Naboo, new treaties with the Gungans were signed that reinforced the isolation of the lakes in the region.[2]

In springtime, the festival of Glad Arrival transformed the communally-owned, Pastoral Collective-maintained meadows into a setting for colorful pageants and musical performances for several days.[5]

The private retreat of the Naberrie family, Varykino, was situated on the small island of the same name in the Lake Country.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The picnic scene in the grasslands of Lake Country for Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones was shot in a meadow near the 18th century Villa del Balbianello in Italy. The location was combined with footage, visual effects of waterfalls, and a matte painting for its final appearance in the film.[6]
