Does anyone know if the planet Sullust (home of those happy little sullustans) was a part of the Galactic Empire or not? If Sullust was a part of the Empire, how were they treated and if they weren't a part of the Empire, how did they manage to keep the Empire at bay?

I know that the Sorosuub Corporation was a major arms supplier for the Empire, but Sullust defected and allowed the Rebel fleet to mass there.

Sullust was a corporately-operated planet (albeit one of the few that wasn't horribly exploited by it's parent corporation, SoroSuub). SoroSuub was an Imperial-aligned company right up until Return of the Jedi, just prior to the fleet regrouping and the Battle of Endor. However, SoroSuub played both sides in the GCW, supplying both the Rebels and the Imperials. ;)

SoroSuub was an official supporter of the New Order. However a stronge anti-Imperial element exsited within the corporation. It was this element who provided arms to the Rebels while their employer fueled the Imperial war machine. However, just before the Battle of Endor the pro-Rebel factions staged a coup with in the board of directors. They then declared Sullust in rebellion and aloud the Rebel feet to stage in their system prior to the assault on the second Death Star.

What about post-ESB, pre-ROTJ era? Would it be hard for Rebels to be there, or would the cantinas have the odd Rebel contact in it?

Sullust has always been a Rebel frinedly world, provided you don't attract to much of the wrong kind of attention.
