Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Corellian League was established shortly after the Imperium began settling the Spinward Marches. Composed of Solomani who travelled to Beyond Sector around -140, the League was originally a defense pact. The local culture was very militant and aggressive, and despite a weak central government, the League expanded steadily to rimward and spinward.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Early clashes with the nascent Federation of Garrone in the 300s led to a longstanding rivalry, and frequent skirmishes by both sides over borders and markets.

The League has always been a militant society. While historically democratic, power had been carefully delineated along the lines of a military command structure. Military service was mandatory, and many of the most able veterans were retained as an inactive reserve for times of war.

With Imperial power and influence limited by the Zhodani, the League made a cursory alliance with the Imperium, but charted an independent course of their own that made their neighbors nervous. By the 800s, the League was the largest and most powerful of the Client States, skillfully squeezing in between both the Consulate and the Imperium, and taking advantage of their standoff.

The breakup of the Imperium in 1116 upset that balance of power, and attracted Aslan Ihatei to Imperial territory BTC. When the Domain of Deneb stalled the Aslan advance in 1121, newly arrived Ihatei looked elsewhere for land, and many were diverted to Beyond Sector. At first exultant over Aslan advances into the Federation of Garrone, the Corellians were taken aback when Ihatei began making an end run around the Federation, towards the Nakris Confederation and their own Rimward colonies. Despite a number of determined Aslan invasions, the League just barely drove the Ihatei away from their main territories, though their colony enclave to rimward was mostly overrun.

When the victorious fleet commander Admiral Ebba Nazari returned to Corellia/Corell (Beyond ) in 1132, he and a number of military officers, aided by local business interests, overthrew the governing Coordinate Council, and declared a national emergency. The League Constitution was suspended, and local autonomy was usurped, except for the industrial worlds that supported Nazari's coup. Nazari voided most local sovereignty, replacing planetary governments with Emergency Council appointed governors, backed by military police and naval interdictions.

These business interests embarked upon a major modernization effort, supported by the Emergency Council, that led to the League reaching TL 15 by 1175. Their efforts recieved a major boost from the Regency's Representational Reforms, as the League offered homes and investment oppurtunities for displaced Regency nobles, who used their money, resources, knowledge and contacts to assist their new countrymen.

The Corellian people are themselves divided by the events of the past 70 years. The newer regions of the League, especially in Vanguard Reaches Sector, are openly rebellious, while those in the traditional heart of the League believe that the Emergency Council's efforts are necessary given the League's backwardness and the intractability of its enemies.

Military & Intelligence (Force Projection)[edit]

Once they modernized, they tried to update their naval architecture with mixed results. The Corellian War Corvette is an example of their ship building. [1]
