The less acquisitive ones are allowed to die as others hoard more than they can eat. The practice makes Neimoidians greedy and fearful of death. As adults, Neimoidians are known for their exceptional organizing abilities. Driven by their intensedesire for possessions, they have built the largest commercial corporation in the galaxy. Led by the Neimoidians, the Trade Federation is a labyrinthine organization of bureaucrats and trade officials from many worlds that has insinuated itself throughout the galaxy.
