The powers that exert control in the galaxy comprise of three sources. Empires/System states which are nations with different forms of governments that control varied areas of the galaxy. The See, a semi-religious organization that controls most of the gates, and finally the major corporate powers that have grown as giant merchant houses, even rivaling some of the major nation states. Please note these are brief descriptions, the goal is to have entire write ups for these states linked off their names in the future.
