History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Galian Trade League rose from the foundation of Galastrian Metal's holdings. Galastrian Metals collapsed during a workers' revolt on Tharver in 302, but within three years the League Concord had been signed establishing the Galian Trade League, a trade corporation which essentially took over most of Galastrian's former holdings under looser reigns of authority and control. By the mid-500s, the League incorporated all of what is today the Galian Federation, the Plavian League, the Trindel Confederacy, and the coreward worlds of the Viyard Concourse.

In 750, nine worlds which called themselves the Viyard Alliance broke away from Gateway's control and, two years later, petitioned to join the Collective. Gateway sent a fleet to force the rebellious former Federation worlds back into line and was beaten at the Battle of Coralee (754). The Treaty of Umbrin (758) established the independence of the Viyard worlds, which subsequently joined with the Collective to form the modern Viyard Concourse.

By 900, various factors -but especially the rise of piracy- had brought about a serious further weakening of the Galian Trade League. Full-fledged civil war broke out in 911 , leading to the break-up of the League and the founding of the modern Galian Federation in 925.

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

The Galian Trade League government is characterized as having a low degree of centralization, which gives local/regional/planetary governments almost complete control and has great difficulty creating uniform policy. The Galian Trade League government is usually classified as a League, a form of a Confederation.
