Cloud City was a Tibanna gas mining colony floating in the clouds of the planet Bespin, located in the Anoat sector of the Outer Rim Territories. Cloud City was a completely man-made Tibanna gas mining colony of a few million tourists, workers and support staff hovering over the gas giant Bespin. Popular tourist activities included gambling, hiring a cloud car for sightseeing the city and occasionally touring the local mining operations. Cloud City was notable enough to warrant the existence of postcards that included such phrases as "Wish You Were Here" in Aurebesh. Generators on the underside of the city emitted tractor beams that converged below the gas mine's reactor bulb, creating a funnel of energy that mined Tibanna gas from Bespin's lower atmosphere, at depths of more than 23,000 kilometers. Cloud City was run by the Baron Administrator, who at some point during the Age of the Empire was the given position of Lando Calrissian.
Shortly after the Battle of Hoth, fleeing members of the Rebel Alliance Leia Organa, Han Solo and Chewbacca along with their protocol droid C-3PO landed at Cloud City needing to repair their starship, the Millennium Falcon.
Shortly after the Battle of Hoth, the Empire took over Cloud City, establishing a skeleton garrison to ensure that the citizens would pay proper taxes and fines to the regime. Before word of the Emperor's death could reach the city, Imperial Governor Adelhard established the Iron Blockade over the entirety of the Anoat sector, shutting down travel and communications in and out of Cloud City. During the Black Fleet Crisis, Bespin was troubled by the appearance of space pirates (funded by the Sith Order of Decreto siphoning gas from floating refineries such as BesGas Three to sell elsewhere.

It was later conquered by the Sith during the Sith Crusade and even later claimed by Darth Wyyrlok as part of his domain during the Successors War. Level 1-50: Luxury hotels and casinos which made the city famous throughout parts of the Outer Rim.
Level 371-392: Contained the 36,000 repulsorlift engines and tractor beam generators that kept the city afloat and in position. The last official counting placed Cloud City's population at 5,427,080 (not counting droids). Under the auspices of Baron Administrator Lando Calrissian, the city attempted to avoid unwanted Imperial attention.
Being located in Bespin's Life Zone, the station had no need of airlocks or life-support systems, with the atmosphere being comprised mostly of oxygen and acceptable levels of gravity and temperature. The gas was forced up into an opening at the bottom of the bulb, where it traveled up the reactor stalk and finally into one of several smaller reactor shafts, where it was filtered through a processing vane. Being greeted by Lando Calrissian, the trio would ultimately be betrayed by Calrissian to Darth Vader and the Empire, who had arrived shortly before they did. The city would also serve as the location of Governor Adelhard's personal chamber located within the prime tower. It received its name from the fact that it floated high above the actual planet—an uninhabitable gas giant.

With Bespin's total population somewhere around 6 million, this made the city the decidedly largest of all colonies on Bespin. The station was situated 59,000 kilometers above Bespin's core, while its disk was approximately 16.2 kilometers in diameter. Luke Skywalker, sensing the danger his friends were in arrived at Cloud City in order to mount a rescue, only to be engaged in a duel with Vader.
Eventually the Jedi stopped the Space pirates but did not discover the Order's involvement. However, after the Emperor's death, the Imperial Garrison was abandoned during the Iron Blockade, and the planet was soon liberated. 36,000 repulsorlift engines and tractor beam generators kept the giant city floating above the planet.
By the duel's conclusion, Luke would learn that Darth Vader was his father and would jump down one of the city's reactor shafts in order to avoid joining the dark side of the Force.
