was formed in 2351 as a way to unite
the human colonies scattered around the galaxy. Initially this was a good
thing, all the Alliance Alliance planets prospered from it, but eventually the Alliance Council and the inner worlds got greedy. They increased taxes on the poorer outer worlds, began using slave labor camps and calling them "temporary oportunity centers" and eventually began making people who disagreed with them vanish. This eventually split the galaxy into a civil war between the
Grand Alliance and the Republic of the Galactic Fringe.
