Pau City was one of the large sinkhole cities that pitted the arid surface of Utapau. It was the planet's capital and primary spaceport. In the ending stages of the Clone Wars, Pau City was governed by Torul Blom, with Tion Medon serving as Port Administrator, and Jen June as Police Inspector.
Pau City was located on the Outer Rim planet of Utapau. It was located in a giant sinkhole beneath the planet's surface and a majority of its structures were built out of Ossic, a type of fossilized bone. It was mostly populated by the native Utai and Pau'ans whose ancestors built the city. Pau City was the largest sinkhole community on Utapau.
The city was made up of eleven different levels going from the top of the sinkhole all the way to the bottom. One of the highest levels was the civic level. The civic level was occupied by the governmental and bureaucratic community as well as the Port Administration. The city's major civic and ceremonial buildings were located on this level, as well as the residence of the Pau'an elite. Another level was the wealth level which was located slightly lower then the civic level. This level is were a lot of goods for exporting derive from and where the Ossic structures are manufactured, it is also where the middle class Pau'an and few wealthy Utai are located. Another level was the produce level, which was towards the bottom of the sink hole. It was where a bulk of the Utai lived and was where the food for the city was produced daily, it was also where the Dactillions and Varactyls were bred for used by the population. One more level was the mining level which was the lowest level in the city. The mining level was where a majority of the bone was mined for use in construction, it also contained natural hot springs that were good for relaxing.
Eons ago a group of aliens seeked to colonize the world of Utapau even though it was barren and appeared to lack natural resources. Because of the huge storms that regularly occurred on the surface of the world the colonists who settled on Utapau were unable to do so on the surface. Instead of building their settlements on the surface the colonists that would later evolve into the Utai and the Pau'ans decided to build their communities in natural sinkholes and crevices where they would be safe from the storm. These sinkhole communities had to build their structures out of fossilized bones known as ossic due to lack of wood and other natural resources. Pau City was the largest sinkhole community on Utapau ever created.
