Around the Stellar Ring are powerful organizations and nations that build up the Galactic Federation. The Galactic Federation still stands as the most powerful force in the known universe, as it represents the united might of several nations that join together for a single goal: Peace. This peace is a very fragile one, at best, since many among the Federation’s nations have difficulties and rivalries that go back centuries hence. It is only because of the Galactic Concord, the galactic peacekeepers, that peace is achieved and maintained.

Rigunmor Star Consortium
Central Zone: Fortress Ship Oneagle

Rigunmor is an interstellar market, and has a reputation to harbor nothing more than merchants, smugglers and thieves. The Consortium cares little about ideals, and professes one single interest: Money and Trade. As such, being the most widely connected and resourceful nation among the Federation powers, it has risen to a position that rivals the very strengths of Thuldan and VoidCorp.

Central Zone: Catalog, and scattered around the Verge
Headed by: The Management
The Machiavellian, order-obsessed corporation called VoidCorp respects only two things: Rank and Power. It began as the corporation Microtel, and rose as the largest, most successful business in the galaxy after the second galactic war. It owns the intricate VoidCorp GRID, an enhanced , more potent form of a stellar-internet. People born in VoidCorp areas are automatically signed into their employment… for LIFE. To leave employ means death – something they have come to call the Death Oath. Personnel have no names, but only identification numbers.
