Confederation of Fringe Worlds
For the worlds on the Rimward side of the sector, the distance of separation between systems, and the lack of Warp Gate tech means that the bigger Governments see very little reason to pay attention to any of the Fringe worlds. Thus, 25 standard cycles ago, the systems of the Heathen Stars, the Accursed Demise, and the Unbeholden Reaches created a loose alliance called the Confederation of Fringe Worlds. Unlike the Republic, or the Star Kingdom whose realms claim dozens of worlds, the star systems of the Confederation are primary self governed. Systems enrolled in the Confederation send representatives to annual conferences in order to strengthen ties, resolve problems, and work towards a future which includes the Fringe worlds in human politics.
