The Galactic Concord (often shortened to just the Concord) is a political body created at the end of Galactic War 2. It is somewhat similar to the UN of old earth, a body created with oversight abilities, governed by a council of representatives from each of the stellar nations, who elect an executive. It is granted power in all of space between planets, and is allowed oversight over all stellar nations. It is also a nation unto itself, made up of territory donated (sometimes forcibly) by various powers at the end of the second galactic war. It has it’s own shipyards, but also received donations of ships and other materiel at the end of GW2. Many stellar nations citizens became citizens of the concord when it was formed just over 30 years ago, and now there is an entire generation who has grown up as citizens of the concord itself. The concord’s primary mission is to prevent the outbreak of another galactic war, and sees the verge as a dangerous area that could easily provide the spark that could ignite another war. therefore it has taken a heavy hand in controlling the return of the stellar nations to the region.
