The Federation of Free Planets, often simplified to the Federation, was the successor organization founded by the remnant of the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances following the sudden death of Gar Stazi.
The government was founded in 143 ABY, following the deaths of Gar Stazi and his captain in battle. The Galactic Alliance Remnant was in turmoil following the events of the Koornacht cluster war, which was the war which occurred following the Yevethan aggression. The Federation was as such founded from the remainder of the Alliance. The government was founded on the old charter and reconstructed into the Federation of Free Planets Common Charter, reinstating the title of chancellor, which hadn't been used since the days of the Galactic Republic.
Government and politicsEdit
A change between the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances and the Federation of Free Planets included the introduction of a new charter, and the reinstating of the chancellor title as leader. A large change was that the one which held the title of chancellor was far less powerful in comparison to the Galactic Republic.
While the chancellor was the decorated leader, the Federation of Free Planets Senate was in control of almost anything. Unlike former governments, the chancellor was allowed a vote-in in the senate, his vote counting atleast twice as much in most discussions given his status.
The Federation, unlike it's predecessors, was lead by a chancellor, much like the Galactic Republic. The chancellor, much like it's predecessors, was decided by the majority of the votes in the senate. A major difference between the organizations was that the Federation had a Command of Order, which was a small group of military commanders which served the Supreme Commander, and had direct influence with the chancellor.
The main body of the legislative branch was the Federation senate. The senate held a large portion of power and was joined by the chancellor in many decisions, and otherwise any laws and politics had to pass the chancellor's judgement before they would be committed into the Federation.
The judicial branch held a considerably large amount of power and was of increased importance following the fracture of the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances.
While the Federation of Free Planets held a large portion of the Galactic Alliance Remnant's resources, its income was largerly the same, ranging from a steady income to a rather strong income. This economy was destroyed during the Infinity War, for many client worlds were blockaded by the Predecessors and the remaining members of Dark Reach.
The Federation of Free Planets army was the planetary ground force of the Federation of Free Planets. The ground force often worked closely in conjunction with the Federation of Free Planets police forces and the Federation of Free Planets Navy. The Army was led by a Supreme Commander, much like it's predecessors. The army was tasked with numerous objectives, ranging from the protection of planets on the border to helping liberate a planet. Other tasks included tracking down and eradicating rebel forces and supporting police forces.
The navy of the Federation was composed of many new warships, produced by allies of the Federation, including Cybe Drives, Kuat Drive Yards and Mon Calamari Shipyards. Ships like the Cyber CY-450 destroyer were among almost all fleets and made up a major component of the naval forces. Fleets were often composed of multiple destroyers, frigates, corvettes and starfighter carriers produced by various manufacturers.
The marine department was a special force unique in the galaxy, given that it's predecessors never had one, nor any other organization. The marines were controlled by the Order of Command and were often inserted in space-to-ground operations. The marine forces was composed of a small portion of both, the navy and the army, often tasked with the quick subjugation of planets whom's defenses were light. These troops were either inserted by usage of drop pods or dropships, notably the CVW-13A drop pods and CVW-220 dropships were used in these operations due to their capability. Following the capture of a viable ground location, troops of the army were inserted to continue the operation. These troops were often called shock troops due to their ability to immediately intervene, but were however not as well armed as standard troops.
While the Federation held many of the Galactic Alliance Remnant's worlds, a few lost faith in their parent organization and followed an independent route, while others, like the Foronian Governance, were absorbed into the organization following the reformation. Following the fall, most of the formerly aligned governments, like the Chiss Ascendancy and the Hapes Consortium went independent from the Federation, though often remaining in good relations with them.
