The product of an alliance among a large collective of West Europan democracies known informally as "The Federation."
Popular uprisings spurred on by the late 18th century Industrial Revolution gave birth to a number of new democracies. The nascent Empire, formed to the east, represented a common threat, motivating a mutual defense agreement among these infant republics. Though an elected Head Councilor acts as the Federation's chief executive, unanimous agreements are rare among the constituent republics, meaning it often takes months to enact measures. Though a series of secret alliances and gains won by extortion and blackmail put the Federation ahead of the Empire in terms of national power, they have yet to defeat them on the field of war.
