History of the Commonwealth
The History of the Commonwealth of United Economic Nations extends across 65,894 years. The species and nations which formed the Commonwealth have since sculpted it, acting as significant roles in its modern-day appearance. Much of the original structure of the Commonwealth also stems from these nations, and the wars in which they have waged. The most notable modern nations which have changed the Commonwealth are known to be the Lowzyol Federation, the Ochya-Baros Federation of Eqeyun, and the Foswoaca Interstellar Union.
Early regional history of the Commonwealth is defined by the many nations which influenced the intergalactic landscape. Initially, the nation of Sedrua, or rather instances of it, assumed control over a large percentage of the Local Universe. The rising and falling of Sedrua lead to the modern makeup of the Local Universe. Eventually, they created the Intergalactic Gateway Network and allowed for the large level of intergalactic travel which is observed today.
In the modern-day, the Commonwealth is currently alarmed by The Exhumation, including Sedrua and another ancient organization named The Paragons of the Burning Crown. The Commonwealth is heavily invested in the current political climate, and has continued to hold influence across many galaxies this way.

Before Sedrua (13,000,000,000 BCE - 316,100 BCE)
Mostly undocumented, the history of the Aylothnn region of space is very sparse prior to the rise of Sedrua. A very minute amount of relics and artifacts which do not originate from Sedrua have been detected. The most notable intergalactic events at this time seem to be the merging of galaxies, and the rising and falling of precursor empires. The application of these galaxies would form what is known as the Aylothnn Sphere, and it exists today from these primordial events. With these events, life would spring forth and come together, sculpting the modern landscape of the Aylothnn Sphere.
As seen by a historic lack of life in several periods, it as known that many major civilizations have come to exist fruitfully in the domains of the Aylothn Galaxy. The names or origins of these empires are largely unknown, considering that any archives have been destroyed, lost, or kept in very low quality condition. Furthermore, the dramatic rise, stagnation, and regression of Sedrua has removed much-needed evidence for any activity prior to 300,000 BCE. As such, many have been left to speculate. Officials from the nation of Sedrua have also given meager amounts of information relating to the political landscape of the Aylothn Galaxy of their time.
Sedruan Influence (316,100 - 7,500 BCE)
The first major heavily documented nation in the Aylothnn region is Sedrua, a nation which once held influence over the entire Aylothn-Sagittaria Group. Over its many periods of rising and falling, Sedrua constructed numerous artifacts and historical structures, most notably the Intergalactic Gateway Network. Its history of ensuring itself as the only major civilization also hindered the development of life considerably, with modern-day nations flourishing shortly after its absence.
The many calamities which plagued Sedrua also has an effect in more modern history. This considers that Sedrua transformed from a very expansionist to a very isolationist nation, with the slow and harsh decline of Sedrua's influence taking a toll on its overall ideals. This also prompted the War over Heaven in the most recent cases. Its decline also compromised the integrity of numerous artifacts, Intergalactic Gateways, and similar structures.
By the year 7,500 BCE, Sedruan decline became severe enough to where all influence beyond the Suvaren Galaxy became unstable. The heavy level of isolationism prevented the nation from extending out, with the government and population being centered on keeping what was left alive. And so, Sedrua closed off access to the Suvaren Galaxy, (later to be re-enforced by a certain Exclusion Zone) and life appeared to surface Immediately after.
Gradual International Unity (21,833 - 34,106 CE)
The idea of the Commonwealth stems back to the 21000s, when the founding nations of the CUEN were not quite as united. Instead, they co-existed as cordial yet separate entities. Initially, talks about unification and closer relations were turned down in turn for expansion and more isolationist thoughts. Light paranoia about international strife struck the nations of the Aylothn Galaxy, who did not see themselves as ready for national unification. This, combined with potential cultural conflicts, compounded with the massive list of tasks which these nations would have to do.
Over a period of many millennia, it was observed that the idea of a unified Confederacy would be possible. Combined with advances in technology and relations, many pondered about stable unification for a common goal. Considering the potential benefits, the founding nations of the Commonwealth soon came together, developing a level of closer relationships. While it would end up taking thousands of years, the founding nations of the Commonwealth came reasonably close enough for a confederate kind of unification to be an option.
Eventually, the establishment of key trade lines and wormhole gateways was enough to signify very positive relations between all major nations of the Aylothnn section. Three nations in particular, the Economic States of Saw-Yos, the Foswoaca Interstellar Union, and the Snuatzia-Shington Interstellar Communal Systems, saw a great benefit in unification. This was especially considering the many millennia which passed since the foundation of the Confederacy of Borealis. Soon enough, after a heavy level of diplomacy and integration, they unified and created the Commonwealth.
Creation of The Commonwealth (34,106 - 34,212 CE)
With the unification of the first three nations, the Lowzyol Federation and Vaspujian Federate League, also great allies with everyone, contemplated on becoming Founding Nations of the Commonwealth. They intended to aid in the creation of its systems and international infrastructure. The creation of the Carosi which was drafted by the Economic States of Saw-Yos was immensely attractive to the Lowzyol Federation in particular. After several decades of setting up more valuable trade lines and infrastructure, the Lowzyol Federation was admitted to the Commonwealth, officially making it an intergalactic nation. The Vaspujian Federate League joined not so long after, making it the final founding nation of the Commonwealth.
The final Founding Nation of the Commonwealth is considered to be the Vaspujian Federate League, as it oversaw the foundation of the Commonwealth. It joined after a combination of pressure and potential benefits, and was the final nation to implement and revise major Commonwealth law. Numerous trade lines and other bits of infrastructure were immediately created, to support the new cycle of trade and bring together the once separated cultures. The affinity of large projects was also abuzz in the community of the Vaspujian Federate League. As such, the nation initiated the construction of many megastructures in Commonwealth areas, signifying the start of a heavy expansion.
Expansion (34,212 - 40,976 CE)
Expansion of the Commonwealth was first signified by its first true formation, which as accomplished by the Vaspujian Federate League. After full integration of all founding nations, including the heightened construction of infrastructure, the Commonwealth began to expand territorially. For the sake of peace and prosperity, a legion of colonial forces were sent deep in Aylothn Galaxy, with influence in satellite galaxies also becoming an option. Several Commonwealth founding nations, most notably the Foswoaca Interstellar Union, ended up holding huge legions of influence. Others, such as the Lowzyol Federation and its Rhickshan segment, decided to expand inwards, with development skyrocketing and economies rising. Eventually, the dynamic of power was set in the Commonwealth, with its five major member nations dominating known Aylothnn space.
Following the next few centuries, further surveying of the Aylothn Galaxy resulted in the discovery of numerous nations, yet yielded no results for any other major nations. The Commonwealth, curious about the lack of life, managed to hold a survey over most of the Aylothn Galaxy over a period of a few hundred years. What they discovered was shocking - a plethora of not-too-ancient artifacts, which seemed to belong to one massive nation. This nation, which seemed to have influence over all of the Aylothn Galaxy, was thought to have sterilized or inhibited the formation of sapient life. This allowed the Commonwealth to re-evaluate its plans for expansion and colonization.
Upon further study of the artifacts, The Commonwealth managed to link together the Intergalactic Gateway Network, a massive array of advanced wormhole gateways which were mostly in functional condition. The Commonwealth, seeing the opportunity of efficient galactic expansion, managed to link together numerous Intergalactic Gateways. The Commonwealth also linked together all gateways in its borders, allowing for mass travel between Commonwealth member nations. It would also promote cohesion and expansion, which accelerated Commonwealth influence in the Aylothn Galaxy even more.
In the beginning ages of new Commonwealth expansion, however, a major event would take place. With everything going smoothly, a diplomatic event with an intergalactic foreign entity would change history forever. A nation known as the Confederacy of Borealis would activate a certain Intergalactic Gateway, making headway for the Aylothn Galaxy. Being a lesser force in their own domain, the Confederacy pondered about the expanses in the Aylothn Galaxy. The discovery of several ancient gateways further forwarded this idea, and the Confederacy soon re-activated them. One gateway in particular would arrive in Aylothn, near the site of the Commonwealth.
With a new nation entering the vicinity of the Aylothn Galaxy, the Confederacy of Borealis quickly set up several colonial outposts, before noticing a selection of gateways in a hub. It was these gateways which permitted the Confederacy to envelop in deeper exploration. This ended up resulting in them finding the Commonwealth, a power greater to theirs at the time. After a quick session of diplomacy, information began to be traded at blistering speeds. Soon enough, both the nations in the Via Sagittaria and the Commonwealth knew about each other. However, extended diplomacy was essentially impossible, save for a spare few diplomats which often crossed the new gateway.
By the 37000s, after the discovery of the Confederacy, Commonwealth member nations further experimented with the Intergalactic Gateway Network. Nations ended up establishing numerous colonies in more distant reaches of the Aylothn Galaxy, seeking to play in the long game. It also allowed for more isolationist nations, such as the Lowzyol Federation, to hold a modicum of influence in the Aylothn Galaxy. This stint of Lowzyolian expansion created the now revered embassy worlds of Leirokawa and Loxentau, and further deepened diplomacy between all Commonwealth Member Nations.
From the 38000s to the 38700s, the Commonwealth experienced one of its highest levels of growth, with colonialism spiking upon the discovery of most Intergalactic Gateways. The Commonwealth Government, ecstatic as most were, passed the 'International Expansion and Influence Act' of 38512. This allowed for all member nations of the Commonwealth to begin integration of smaller, non-member nations. These ended up turning into provinces, and the Commonwealth was seen as an international benefactor. In time, the Commonwealth lent many nations better economies, quality of life, and more in turn for some autonomy. Many minor nations were accepted in this time period, and it soon shaped the way the Commonwealth views cultures, customs, and other species. By the year 38750, the Commonwealth managed to hold a sizable level of the Aylothn Galaxy under its influence.
Eventually, in the 39000s, the Confederacy of Borealis, combined with a relatively powerful nation called Sagittarium, embarked on full relations with the Commonwealth, trading knowledge, culture, history, and more in quick succession. Embassy worlds, colonies, and more outposts were created as two of the nations of the Via Sagittaria began to call Aylothn their home. With this came with a boost of motivation, which further pushed ideals of expansion, even to isolationist republics of the Commonwealth. However, this would unexpectedly seed the Lowzyol Federation with ideas of dominance over the Commonwealth.
Internal Strife (39,976 - 41,276 CE)
Following a period of rapid expansion, a certain member nation of the Commonwealth, the Lowzyol Federation, underwent many internal changes. The most notable changes happened over a period of a few decades, which involved heavy levels of corporatism. In the Lowzyol Federation, many companies noticed the sharp rise in expansion, and took it to their advantage. These corporations ended up merging or growing, and soon the corporate tendencies of the Lowzyol Federation expanded to an extreme. Other nations noticed as the Lowzyol Federation's government became influenced by corporations. The first long-lived megacorporations of the Commonwealth existed at this time.
With this corporate expanse, the Lowzyol Federation embarked on heavy trade, economic growth, and colonization. Any areas in the Aylothn Galaxy became protected and soon expanded, acting like springboards for colonization. Further expansion was seen after the discovery of all known Intergalactic Gateways in the Peleunsk Galaxy. With many of them leading to the Aylothn Galaxy, the Lowzyol Federation utilized them to increase its intergalactic influence. With this, the Lowzyol Federation began to set up a vast level of trading outposts. This propelled the nation to become to the top economic center of the Commonwealth.
Surrounding member nations, while satisfied with the high levels of trade, noticed that the Lowzyol Federation became more corrupt and secretive. They also appeared to shut off from greater Commonwealth interaction, looking to benefit themselves. As such, many viewed the Lowzyol Federation as a danger to the Commonwealth's stability. By the 40000s, the Lowzyol Federation was placed under a set of sanctions, which denounced the nation of its cheap and immoral practices. The Lowzyol Federation simply continues however, with only light resistance.
Considering that not much came from the sanctioning, the Lowzyol Federation saw the Commonwealth as ineffective. Further colonization and inaction from the greater Commonwealth prompted the Lowzyol Federation to purely focus on themselves, growing their corporate presence. The greater Commonwealth, most notably the Vaspujian Federate League, disapproved of this, citing it as 'self-centered' and 'unfaithful to the Commonwealth.' However, no further action was taken, as the greater Commonwealth feared any major backlash.
The Lowzyol Federation, realizing that they became self-sustaining, slowly dropped out of the Commonwealth. Their perception of the nations boiled down to them being very slow and ineffective. It was something that the Lowzyol Federation clearly did not like to have around. Slow changes in ideology also propelled the Lowzyol Federation to exit the Commonwealth. And so, after only a few more decades, the Lowzyol Federation fully left the Commonwealth, leaving behind a now alarmed coalition.
In the many years leading up to the Commonwealth's Eclipse, the remaining nations of the Commonwealth grew from wary to alarmed, soon becoming deeply concerned about the actions of the Lowzyol Federation. Acceleration of expansion, as well as the decrease in trade and increased tensions made Commonwealth nations fear the worst. The Vaspujian Federate League, the nation which was most alarmed about the Lowzyol Federation, called the Commonwealth together. After a short spur of meetings which lasted several months, the Commonwealth evaluated that the Lowzyol Federation was a rival.
The Lowzyol Federation, after hearing about the Commonwealth's stance, implemented a quick and effective set of defenses. Citizens of the Lowzyol Federation, largely unaware of its corporate shadow government, were also ushered to contribute. This brought a harsh rise in military weapons testing, production, and innovation. Through the years before the Commonwealth's Eclipse, the Lowzyol Federation eventually closed its borders, isolating itself from the Commonwealth and blocking off any access to the Peleunsk Galaxy directly. The Lowzyol Federation, however, utilized their Gateways to expand in terms of territory. Internal defenses of the Lowzyol Federation also continued
The 41,260s came forth with more developments against the Lowzyol Federation. It began with the Commonwealth permitting the use of its military to patrol bordered areas. At first, this action was received with mixed perception, but the looming threat of the Lowzyol Federation was too high for many other options. It was believed around the nation that the Lowzyol Federation could rip the Commonwealth apart, with its sheer numbers and grit. This would deepen with the Lowzyol Federation's newfound tendancy towards nationalism, as they would constantly make remarks about the 'slow' nature of the Commonwealth.
In the final years before all-out war, militarization skyrocketed after border disputes and scuffles. It is said that the Lowzyol Federation attempted to claim valuable Commonwealth territory, and attempted to enforce it with light military patrol. This territory, which contained several Intergalactic Gateways, was seen by the Lowzyol Federation as essential for future colonization. The Commonwealth, seeking to limit expansion of the Lowzyol Federation, tried to halt this by increasing its military presence, not seeking to engage but to intimidate. Back and forth shows of force, as well as attempts at intimidation ensued, with turns of foul diplomacy increasing tensions near its breaking point. Soon after, however, the Lowzyol Federation would no longer bear the waiting, and decided to strike with unprecedented power.
Commonwealth's Eclipse (41,276 - 41,356 CE)
Without a warning, without a declaration, not even with a cruel shout across the border, it happened. The Commonwealth was suddenly besieged throughout the entire LZF-CUEN border. With this brash and sudden declaration of war, the Commonwealth immediately called to arms, and held a contingency meeting between all nations. Forces on the Commonwealth side, being berated and surprised by the Lowzyol Federation's sudden move, had to evacuate the area soon after. Battles were lopsided as the unrelenting and uncaring fleets of the Lowzyol Federation powered through. While made cheap on the LZF side, spacecraft were immensely effective, as a result of their numbers. The Lowzyolian Astronavy was also the first in Commonwealth history to fully utilize widespread drone network in war.
Wartime tensions came immediately after the informal declaration of war. The Commonwealth, viewing the Lowzyol Federation as a savage nation, saw its fierce and unending potential. Eventually, this mindset would get to the heads of Commonwealth leaders, which promptly declared war only hours after the first attack. Nearby fleets were told to fire at will, as well as to return to the new front line and defend its valuable territory. With this declaration of war, the Commonwealth's Eclipse officially began, and immediate retaliation followed suit. The LZF, for its part, was well prepared for this fight. The government had been gearing up for a conflict for quite some time, in order to defend its territory and also to expand.
With war being the only option to calming the Lowzyol Federation, the Commonwealth spared no time sending its bolstering military, which was built over a period of many decades. The first strikes appeared not too far from the old border zone, as the Lowzyol Federation advanced to the valuable territories which it claimed. The Lowzyol Federation, intending for the conflict to be swift, expected the Commonwealth to yield after noticing their military. However, the war had only just begun, and the Commonwealth's immediate retaliation proved to the Lowzyol Federation that the CUEN would not give in. Eventually, the Commonwealth would remain in a defensive stance, not seeking for any further conflict. War soon became gridlocked as a result.
With the first few years of the war, territory over gateways were traded back and forth, but the Commonwealth sought to hold the lines and prevent any further warfare. The Commonwealth also established many wormhole gateways near the edge of the Aylothn Galaxy. The nation wanted to invade the Lowzyol Federation in an act similar to that of a show of force, which would hopefully show the Lowzyol Federation its futility in war. In the mean time, the Commonwealth and the Lowzyol Federation held an unstable front line. Hostilities would often rear their ugly head, but the military of the Lowzyol Federation and the Commonwealth continued to stare each other down.
By the 41280s, the Lowzyol Federation's advances were halted by the surmounting Commonwealth forces. Extended fleets from all across the nation arrived years prior, keeping things under an unstable control. However, much like in the beginning of the war, the Lowzyol Federation lost its patience. The plan for expanding into valuable Commonwealth territory had to be thrown out, since it became overdue. A new plan of brute force was created, and it involved the creation of AI, something which was banned from Commonwealth warfare. If the Lowzyol Federation managed to defeat the Commonwealth however, they would use AI as much as they pleased.
Unbeknownst to the Lowzyol Federation, however, was the plans from the Commonwealth. With its new constructs which would lead them to the Peleunsk Galaxy, the Commonwealth hoped to distract the primary set of fleets in the Aylothn Galaxy. The Commonwealth knew full well that the Peleunsk Galaxy was likely to be defended heavily. So, they silently sent a notable portion of the Commonwealth Astronavy to where they would warp to the Aylothn Galaxy. Considering that all other routes to the galaxy were under jurisdiction of the Lowzyol Federation, The Commonwealth decided to pave their own. Soon enough, Commonwealth forces took wormholes, and by the year 41281 they fled to the Peleunsk Galaxy.
Through the many months of travel to the Peleunsk Galaxy, The Commonwealth continued to hold many fronts in the Aylothn Galaxy. Further backup from both sides proved this to be difficult, yet both nations persisted. Considering the slow nature of the fronts, the Lowzyol Federation decided to release automated systems to its primary spacecraft, while improving the systems of drones. Drone pilots were phased out for automated systems as well, showing superiority in its related fronts. With the release of automated and intelligent-thinking craft, the Lowzyol Federation slowly pushed against fronts in the Aylothn Galaxy. While several months would pass until significant developments, it still satisfied the Lowzyol Federation, with gateways being claimed by them more effectively. Even so, they were blissfully unaware about the imminent Commonwealth attack against their homeland.
As soon as it happened, the Lowzyol Federation realized the gravity of its situation. The Commonwealth forced itself through the outer defenses of the Peleunsk Galaxy, immediately drawing attention to the area. While there was a heavy level of homeland security for the Lowzyol Federation, a large percent of its military was stationed in the Aylothn Galaxy, handling the fronts which were advancing. Everything which remained existed in the forms of hastily produced defense systems, which were cheap and effective with its numbers. Thought to be mostly impenetrable, the Lowzyol Federation was unpleasantly surprised by the Commonwealth's new vigor. Immediately, LZF military was recalled to the Peleunsk Galaxy, something which would take over a month. In the time of relative military defenselessness, Commonwealth fleets were held back by pre-built defenses. Even with this inhibitor, the high level of spacecraft which they sent managed to overwhelm it in many cases. With multiple successful attacks on LZF military infrastructure and the reclamation of multiple gateways, the first major victory was marked. It was definitely a success for the Commonwealth, but at a cost of time and numerous resources.
As soon as the LZF military arrived in the Peleunsk Galaxy, a massive session of regional gridlock ensued. However, many gains in the Aylothn Galaxy were immediately lost, as a result of the shifting of power. The next objective of the Lowzyol Federation was to tire the Commonwealth, by letting fight a war in their own homeland. With this period of gridlock, the Commonwealth and Lowzyol Federation essentially played a massive waiting game. On the Aylothnn Front, however, the Commonwealth managed to take over a heavy level of territory passively. Gateways were re-utilized and it appeared as if all hope for LZF gains were lost.
As months of static warfare turned to several years of minimal development, both nations appeared to be very restless at the new dynamic of warfare. By the 41300s, the Commonwealth decided that there would only be one solution, one that was truly the only way to end the conflict once and for all. The destruction of the Lowzyol Federation. A massive plan was laid out, which involved the re-gearing of the entire Commonwealth Astronavy to effectively attack the Peleunsk Galaxy and all of its defenses. LZF military units in the Aylothnn front were also immediately recalled with this worrying shift in warfare. No longer would it be a waiting game. Instead, it would be a test of might and grit.
With the Commonwealth still stuck in the regions of the Peleunsk Galaxy, they were struck by how effective many defenses were. Most forces were stationed at the edge of the galaxy, while others were left to scout areas for the Commonwealth. At this point, the Lowzyol Federation had dedicated most of their military resources to defending the Peleunsk Galaxy, hopefully trying to deter the Commonwealth. The Lowzyol Federation also planned on re-gaining lost territories in the Aylothn Galaxy after doing so. This appeared like a distant yet tangible thought, something which the Lowzyol Federation assumed was possible form the sheer numbers of automated defenses. Utilizing this dedication, the Commonwealth sent a large number military forces to remaining LZF outposts in the Aylothn Galaxy. They were spread thinner than the ones being sent to the Peleunsk Galaxy, which was not much of a worry at this point. If the Commonwealth managed to break through on all remaining Aylothnn Fronts, they would be able to push the Lowzyol Federation back to their original territories.
With a clear military superiority, The Commonwealth waited until the bulk of its fleets arrived in the Peleunsk Galaxy. In the 41320s, much of the Commonwealth Astronavy, which was used to fight in the Aylothn Galaxy, were sent to the Peleunsk Galaxy. Traveling through numerous wormhole gateways, an organized fleet of these craft would rest at the edges of the Peleunsk Galaxy. Even so, the Lowzyol Federation thought of themselves as more than prepared. Defenses around major planets and colonies became fiercer, automation became more sophisticated, and warfare seemed to be that between equals in the Peleunsk Galaxy. At least, that's what the Lowzyol Federation thought.
Backlash & Evacuation
Distracted on the idea of future conflict going in the Commonwealth's favor, the Lowzyol Federation was torn between managing its people and managing its military. Many had come to the realization that the Lowzyol Federation could not win, as evidenced by the surmounting Commonwealth forces. As the edges of the Peleunsk Galaxy grew thick with Commonwealth influence, it would only take several months before it broke. Small skirmishes through stagnant parts of warfare turned into battles and deeper conflicts, which would invariably be in some kind of favor to the Commonwealth. As a last resort, the Lowzyol Federation employed both manned and automated spacecraft, which were incredibly cheap and easy to produce. Millions of unaffiliated citizens were quickly drafted to work. They were sent to numerous places of production, with automated and manned factories being dedicated for the creation of synthetic manpower and spacecraft. The plan was that should the war ever go bad, a massive fleet of spacecraft would be able to evacuate as much of the wealthy population and government as it could, to a reach of space in the Aylothn Galaxy known as the Etheaunsk Cloud. Spacecraft would also make invasion as difficult as possible, making the intragalactic climate as unstable.
Only several years after, in the 41330s, total war was soon soon to break once more. The Commonwealth thought of themselves as prepared to fight against the Lowzyol Federation, in the form of complete neutralization. They has also made many precautionary measures, by destroyed LZF areas of production near the border. Other interior areas were demolished by the Commonweath Astronavy as well. This would be done by destroying key military and industrial installments, destabilizing the current government, and forcing capitulation through brute warfare. The government of the Lowzyol Federation, being as unstable as it was, was at a higher risk of revolt as well. Recent decisions by the government usually angered the people, especially the drafts and the new cheap policies that were implemented. Many communities of people grew wary and suspicious of the LZF's continued actions relating to corporatism, as well. While the people did not revolt so much as they just ignored the LZF, it was enough for the government to notice.
And so, as a preventative measure, the government of the Lowzyol Federation decided to increase its silence on the opposition of conflict and its current policies. This turned many people from extensively annoyed to furious, as they blatantly saw increasing desperation in the eyes of the government. Try all they could, but the Lowzyol Federation could not distract its population from current issues. Protests first appeared on places which were thought to be protected from such activity. Many broke into riots about the condition of the government, to which the people demanded answers for. Police and military resources had to be directed to many places as continued stability of the Lowzyol Federation was questioned. In a few extreme cases, entire police forces and military bases pledged their loyalty to the people rather than the corrupt government. With the government's hold on the population severely weakened, it was now up to the military to keep the Federation together.
It was just then when the Commonwealth embarked on a full campaign against the Lowzyol Federation. Invading at an ample time, the Commonwealth Astronavy combined its international power to plow through LZF defense. The nation ended up being heavily distracted between quelling riots and upkeeping defense. It was up to the remaining military and intricate set of galactic defense systems to hold of the Commonwealth. Hopefully for the Lowzyol Federation, it would let them prepare for conflict. The Commonwealth, however, was prepared for decades of prolonged warfare. And so, war raged on. The Lowzyol Federation, being suddenly stormed by a heavy level of spacecraft, lost one defense system after another. With heavy losses, the Commonwealth still managed to break through many layers of defense, showing the Lowzyol Federation that they could not win.
Upon realization of future loss of war and loss of control over its own people, high-standing corporate CEOs, government members, wealthy individuals, and countless innocent citizens were evacuated off the planet to safety. This was in its height at the 41340s, and lasted after the war ended. All who were left behind was left at the mercy of their new rulers: the Commonwealth. Meanwhile, the notable ones which evacuated did so over a period of a few years. Numerous craft containing enemies of the Commonwealth were shot down, while others were boarded and assaulted, leaving many formerly wealthy people to go under international punishment. Traitors of the Commonwealth were also spotted and taken at this time, with a noticeable percentage of the evacuation fleets being halted. The ones who could leave founded the Usurpes Plutocracy of Etheaunsk, and embarked on a voyage which would take them hundreds of years. Evacuation mostly stopped once the Commonwealth held influence over all edges of the Peleunsk Galaxy. Slowly, the remaining oligarchs that had stayed began to be rooted out by relentless search and investigation by the newly founded government.
Conflict aged as did the two great powers which waged it. The Lowzyol Federation, held at its final lines of defense, managed to keep cohesion near the inner sections of the Peleunsk Galaxy. A semblance of its government only spanned several major worlds, and still held a firm grip over many rural ones. Considering that much of the old government left the people to rot, they appeared to be more furious than ever, with local revolts on major planets appearing in in full swing. Many turned to extremism and violence while others just secluded themselves in stable little communities, not willing to hear any more of this guttural war. The Lowzyolian Military began to suffer from desertion, and the need to replace soldiers with droids became an unfortunate necessity. Unwavering defense was the only option, and any successful onslaught by the Commonwealth resulted in heavy losses for only the Lowzyol Federation.
With war speeding on, the bulk of the old government, military, and defense network of the Lowzyol Federation was brought to an end. Bombing of major worlds was swift and limited, and typically ended with the capitulation of Lowzyolian control. Bit by bit, the military of the Commonwealth approached the LZF capital world. The world which was defended the fiercest, the world which held the last remnants of oligarch government. The Commonwealth was prepared to assault Lowrokira. In the year 41356, a final duel between an unstoppable object and an immovable force commenced.
It happened in an instant, yet it seems as if it lasted millennia. The invasion of Lowrokira, including the greater Saykya System happened with great conflict and trouble on both sides. The Lowzyol Federation, still managing cohesion over many hundreds of thousands of star systems, would be at risk of complete capitulation by revolt. If ceasefire was declared, Lowrokira would fall alongside the government. Revolt would tear through what was left, silencing the one which could not be silenced. The plan for the Commonwealth was to quickly infiltrate to the Lowrokiran area, bomb strategic locations, dim any resistance, and lower what was left of LZF morale. The planet was defended with deadly force, and was the one of the LZF's major storage world and industrial zones, making its defense arguably the most important facet of the system. As heavy defenses were brought to bare, it became apparent that it would not be a quick capture.
The Commonwealth, planning a conflict over a series of weeks, intended for Lowrokira to be captured by the end. However, it was stretched far longer than intended, lasting several months and being fatal to many Commonwealth fleets. In the meantime, the Lowzyol Federation lost its grip over extended star systems, regressing back to its core outposts and colonies. Lowrokira itself became the last stand of what was once a galactic power. Even so, with defense reaching the end of the line, scattered forces still came together in an attempt to show the Commonwealth its grit. Numerous attempts at diplomacy, this time from the Lowzyol Federation, were fired up to try to keep a semblance of the old government. This time, the Commonwealth would be the one who wouldn't answer, relentlessly powering through the last ends of the last bastion.
The Commonwealth had a fleet of its own take control over the planet, sending a extensive ground force to finish off resistance and capture any survivors. While the numbers were not an issue, the close quarter fighting with deadly defenses made it costly. The war reached its peak in an instant. The largest Lowrokiran city, Toqapkal City, had been half-bombed to ruins, the other half overrun by the fierce fighting and relentless defenses. The planet, a large trace of it at least, laid in ruins. Even the largest defenses on the surface, namely the Brungginkter Molopszia were disabled and destroyed following an extensive planetary bombardment. Raiding of remaining government facilities, as well as the protection of innocent citizens went underway soon after.
In the end, the Commonwealth assumed full control of the Peleunsk Galaxy as what was left of the Lowzyol Federation came to a close. Ceaseless revolt, as well as increased conflict and influence degradation made the nation fight till the bitter end. There was no ceasefire, no declaration of peace, no further diplomatic action. Instead, what befell the Peleunsk Galaxy was a much-needed session of pure silence. Warfare became minimal, troubles melted away, and many believe that April 18th, 41356 CE to be the end of the Commonwealth's Eclipse. The Lowzyol Federation completely and officially fell on May 23rd, 41356, when the Commonwealth declared that it held full influence over the Peleunsk Galaxy.
Post-Eclipse / Aftermath
Soon after the Commonwealth's Eclipse, the Commonwealth declared that it collaborated with many new and older LZF government officials to make a new form of the Lowzyol Federation. Only several decades after the brutal conflict, the Peleunsk Galaxy was cleared and the Commonwealth paved way for the new government, which was originally a mix of corporatism with fair elections and more rights. However, after several more reforms, the Lowzyol Federation was denounced as merely 'corporate-affiliated', with corporations playing a much lesser role on individual life. numerous worlds, with help by the government, corporations, and non-profit organizations, were cleaned and rebuilt. After about 70 years of this new system, it was reported that the Peleunsk Galaxy, furthermore the Lowzyol Federation, had been 'restored'. most vital hyperlanes, colonies, and old embassies were completely fixed with government aid. This 'cleanup' would last until the 41500s, with the final major campaign ending exactly on 41521.
Furthermore, additional aftermath of the Commonwealth's Eclipse was shown in trust between the Commonwealth and the Lowzyol Federation. At first, relations were rocky and unstable, but soon they were kept at a very stable and cordial level. Trading would resume immediately following the end of full corporate control of the Lowzyol Federation, which would boost the economies for both nation. Re-militarization was also a popular option for many, as they believed that the Commonwealth should be prepared against any further threats. However, promising alliances with the Confederacy of Borealis and war exhaustion eventually placed this mindset to rest, as most resources went to development for the people.
