Setting
It is the twilight of the 33rd century. The Milky Way galaxy is politically unified under the Central Galactic Union, a federation explicitly built on human-nationalist ideals, and modeled as an administrative republic. The Union was founded at the end of the Great War in 3275, from the unification of the victorious human empires. It is ostensibly composed of 101 million autonomous member worlds, each with their own government and laws, bound under a common constitution and a common National Government, which directly administers another half a billion colony worlds and a half a billion occupied worlds. However, the Union has a nasty history of abuse of national power, with its imperialist attitude towards aliens, aggressive colonialism, and repression of political dissent and opposition. Those in power insist these are temporary measures to keep order in a tumultuous time. But that's what they said thirty years ago...

Factions
Various organizations exist in the Milky Way, from corporations to government agencies, from militaries to terrorist cells. Some are most definitely at odds with one another, some are grudging allies, while other have well-integrated working relationship. This is true even for organizations that ought to be part of the same side. Many government agencies work together towards a goal, while others are bitter rivals with overlapping jurisdictions.
These organizations and groups represent distinct factions.

Notable Worlds
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.
