PostSubject: Notable Worlds   Wed Nov 30, 2016 12:53 pm

The Milky Way galaxy is full of star systems, between 100 and 400 billion of them, with 100 billion planets. However, only 13% of them have been mapped and explored, with roughly 4% having been colonized or settled. The Central Galactic Union legally comprises all of these stars and worlds; each planet is its own political entity, administered on the basis of various criteria.

This is a list of notable worlds in the galaxy, broken down into these cateogories:

Member Worlds are planets or habitable moons whom are member states of the Union, participants in the federation that makes up the new Republic. Legally, they are independent entities with their own currency, governments, and laws--provided that they follow the federal laws set down by the Central Galactic Government. In practice, they are under a high degree of federal control due to the strong nature of the central government and the coherency of National Humanist ideology. Nevertheless, member worlds hold a prestigious status and generally rule themselves. There are approximately 101,566,000 member worlds.

Colonies are incorporated, organized territories of the Union that are nominally administered by the Central Galactic Government, but are governed by devolved colonial governments. Unlike member worlds, the Union government can override these local governments at any time and has the power to directly issue administrative orders. Per the Organic Government Act of 3282, federal colonies have the right to elect their governors, and around a third of them have done so. There are approximately 408,444,000 federal colonies.

Federal Territories are incorporated but unorganized territories administered directly by the Central Galactic Government in practice as well as in law. Unlike colonies, these are very sparsely populated and have no local government--nor need of such administration due to the lack of population. Most of them are scientific or military bases. There are around 450,000,000 Federal Territory worlds.

Federal Districts are worlds of special interest to the Republic that are administered directly by the federal government, but are of considerable prestige and have a higher population than Federal Territories. They tend to have autonomous government granted to them, like colonies, but have a historical or prestigious status and a level of economic development and settlement closer to that of member worlds. They are usually planets of considerable importance, like the galactic capital of Earth, regional hub worlds, or major military depots. There are around 1,045 Federal Districts.

Occupied Territories are planets governed by joint military-civil administration by virtue of being conquered territory or protectorates. These tend to have a high presence of military and State Security forces to keep order and enforce federal regulations on aliens. Most Occupied Territories are former alien colonies and homeworlds. Around 1 in every 7 occupied world is considered a Protectorate, and are granted some limited self-rule under the guidance of the Union military government. There are around 710,000,000 Occupied worlds.


Classification Scheme
While the definition of worlds into colonies, districts, territories, or member worlds is a political one, this classification scheme categorises them by their physical characteristics: size, atmosphere, temperature, physical composition, and surface water cover.

Terrestrial and Superterrestrial worlds are rocky or icy planets, generally between 0.21 and 10 Earth Masses in size.
All worlds in this category, regardless of type, are denoted further by a letter indicating size. Class a worlds are between 0.10 and 2.5 Earth masses; class b worlds are between 2.5 and 6 Earth masses; class c are between 6.1 and 10 Earth masses.
Spoiler:
 

Gas Giants are non-rocky planets greater than 10 Earth Masses. These typically have no visible solid surface, and are composed mostly of gases surrounding a highly-pressurised metal or rocky core.
