History

Joining the Confederacy of Borealis required the adoption of the official language, Boreal Basic, a loss in sovereignty, the loss of control of their own currency, and the loss of autonomy in defining their own trade relations. Many nations see the benefits of free trade among Confederate nations, a more stable currency, increased foreign investment, protection from outside threats, and the benefits of the Confederacy's soft power as more worth it than the drawbacks. Other nations become what are known as Associate States, nations that while using the currency or engaging in free trade, still maintain the majority of their sovereignty at the cost of losing most representation in the Confederate Congress.

Member nations of the Confederacy of Borealis agree to pay significant tributes to the Confederate Government. Nations are required to tribute a portion of their military resources as well. These can be thought of as the "membership dues" for nations within the Confederacy. With these dues came a small delegation in sovereignty, however, this was accompanied with huge returns. Not only did states receive protection in a chaotic galaxy, but protection from the largest military in the Local Cosmos at the time.

Through hundreds of treaties, the Confederacy grew from just two founding nations to ten, with several more having planned to join into the Confederacy were it not for its reformation into the Boreal Federacy. There are a handful of nations that are associated states to the Confederacy, the largest of which was the Entente of Ventemir, the nation controlling most of the Ventemir Galaxy. Associate states had lower dues, but also have less privileges and half the representation.

Sagittarium

Sagittarium.jpg 3.01 Thalia Humans, Thalians Sagittarium is often described as the primus inter pares of Confederate member-states. It had usually had more freedoms than other member states.

Sagittarium was the largest member state of the Confederacy in terms of Kardashev ranking. At the time, this nation has territory extending over 1.4 billion stars. The nation, for most of its history, was centered on the Nocturne megastructure. Sagittarium is a democratic republic ran by a Chancellor.

Sagittarium was originally a semi-fascist state created immediately after the Great Empyreal Crusade in a coup in the Vaplein Republic. In the early history of Sagittarium, it was by far the most powerful nation in the galaxy. Were it not for the untimely death of its original leader, Klein Vay, it would have dominated the galaxy. Even so, its status as the most powerful military power, unlike its economy and prestige, never went away. In fact, to this day it has the largest military of any member-state in the Confederacy.

Sagittarium had a history defined by the wildly different attitudes its Chancellors have had throughout the years. Some chancellors use the power of the state to enforce their goals while others rely on democratic means to make decisions. Additionally, some chancellors cooperated with the Confederacy far more than others. The nation bounced back and forth between "partial democracy" and "full democracy" based on the attitudes of the various chancellors, giving the nation one of the lowest democracy scores in the Confederacy.

Dotskgard

Dotsk11.png 3.000 Eithlinn Dotsk Dotskgard is essentially a singe-system state that controls large numbers of resources near to its home world.

Dotskgard was a fairly small member-state of the Confederacy. In fact, its official territory was only ten light years across at its widest. The Dotsk originally came to be on a moon, Eithlinn, which orbits a gas giant, Tuirne. All the resources they ever needed, from hydrogen to trans-uranic metals, could be found around this gas giant. The system itself had a handful of other planets, all of which were dragged to orbit Tuirne. Since their gas giant orbited a brown dwarf, they had no concept of a dyson swarm and had to rely on massive fusion arrays to get their energy. Eventually, they located a nearby black hole and brought it to their own system. The started feeding the mass of their brown dwarf and gas giant into this black hole to gather energy. It became what is known as a Birch Planet. Later on, however, they decided to enhance their energy production means. While Birch planets had the potential to power the populations of entire galaxies, the Dotsk had a different idea in mind for their expansion. In 20,001 CE, after a civil war destroyed large portions of their original Birch Planet, they decided to begin construction on Mili, a Recurrent Supernova Engine that, periodically, created an artificial supernova in its core to power the nation. To this day, the entirety of Dotskgard lives around Mili, only increasing the frequency of the supernovae as energy demands rising.

Territory beyond Mili and its satellites was territory granted to it by the Confederacy in the treaty that made the nation join. It mostly served as a resource repository. Major worlds included Eithlinn and Anamnesis, the capital of Dotskgard and the financial capital of the Confederacy respectively. These worlds orbited the original birch planet and, while originally tidally heated by their parent planet, are now almost entirely artificially heated. They were the one of the few Kardashev III civilization that does not qualify as a superpower. Currently, Dotskgard is a state in the Boreal Federacy with the same name.

The United Federation of Star Systems

UFSSFlag.jpg 2.91 Thalsiedeln Humans This nation was the second nation to join the Confederacy. It is one of the most influential of the member-states.

The United Federation of Star Systems was the second largest member state of the Confederacy of Borealis in terms of star count, but not by its Kardashev score. The nation has territory extending over 1.2 billion stars. In the past, the nation was Kardashev III, but had lost this prestigious status after the War of the Ancients. The nation, were it alone, would have qualified as an economic superpower in its own right, before that war. After the war it had lost almost everything. The UFSS was a federal republic itself made up of hundreds of states. Historically, the Federation has been the political and economic center of the Confederacy.

The nation was originally founded when Erstes Konsortium adopted a constitution, transforming it into a constitutional monarchy. At the same time, it was reorganized into a federation with most of the nobility stripped of their titles. Eventually, even the monarch would be moved, transitioning the Federation into a full republic. The noble families maintained their identities through the years; however, they have fallen by the wayside. Towards the end of the Confederacy of Borealis, the UFSS had hardly any self-governing rights, making it more of a province than anything. It lost much of its sovereignty by popular vote of the other member states.

Vanaheimr

Flag Type Capital World Founding Species Notes
Vanaheimr.png 2.889 Jörmungandr Humans This nation was the first nation admitted to the Confederacy of Borealis.

Vanaheimr was the first nation to be admitted to the Confederacy of Borealis. It was a champion of the highly progressive economic system now in place for the Confederacy. The nation consistently scores highly on metrics such as the democracy index and freedom index, while also scoring lowly on the inequality index. To maintain its high scores the nation has no qualms with redistributing wealth and power to prevent inequality.

The nation was created as furious workers rebelled against the Erstes Konsortium. These workers belonged to an ethnic minority, known as the Vanir, which were generally mistreated despite being just as human as the rest of the Konsortium. The Vanir won in the end and created a Market Socialist Economy, that is, an economy where worker cooperatives own the means of production rather than corporations or the state. The state itself would exist to maintain this system, harshly punishing corruption with banishment and maintaining a strong military to prevent outside intervention damaging the system.

Vanaheimr is currently a state in the Boreal Federacy and to this day it maintains this original economy, with some of the largest cooperatives operating across not only Vanaheimr but the galaxy at large. The existence of these cooperatives forces the regular corporations to pay fair wages with minimal government intervention, an ideal set up for any economy. Vanaheimr's economic system served as the inspiration for the Federacy's modern economy.

Blumeheim

Flag Type Capital World Founding Species Notes
Sketch-1592154185117.png 2.87 Alphos The Ravis, Llæns Blumeheim is only partially a member of the Confederacy.

Blumeheim was the most remote member of the Confederacy of Borealis. The word "Blumeheim" means "flower home," a reference to the galaxy the nation resides in, Florescence. The nation as a whole, however, was not a part of the Confederacy. It was technically two nations acting as one, with one being a member of the Confederacy and one not. Blumeheim was the only theocracy in the Confederacy (albeit, only partially a theocracy).

Blumeheim has gone through periods in its history where war was seen as a good thing. Two or more groups would fight as they believed there would be divine intervention on behalf of whomever was more aligned with what is just. Throughout history this added millions of pages of text to the orthodox religion. Many spend their entire lives trying to understand the entirety of the text, with only a handful achieving total understanding.

The Un'oit Collective

Flag Type Capital World Founding Species Notes
Unoit.jpg 2.807 Torlak Un'oit The Un'oit Collective is a partial technocracy rather than a full democracy, a rare occurrence among Confederate states.

The Un'oit Collective was the largest nation within the Confederacy by volume alone. It was the most recent major addition to the Confederacy, joining in 88,173 CE, shortly before it reformed into a Confederation. The Collective was an example of a Partial Technocracy, a form of government in which the most qualified, in this case individuals augmented with powerful computers, would rule the nation in the way they see fit. Local positions are filled with elected officials, with only the highest level of governance having a technocratic element.

The nation emerged out of thousands of warring nation-states united against an invasion by the Yohjan Confederacy. When the Yohjan Confederacy fell, the Collective remained as a cohesive nation. Even after the Confederacy reformed, its people simply refused to join citing the rampant inequality found in the previous government. They would remain fully independent until joining after the War of the Ancients.

Rendell

Flag Type Capital World Founding Species Notes
Rendell.jpg 2.727 Ekros Humans, Thalians, Ekrosians Rendell is still technically a part of Sagittarium, but it is officially its own nation with its own membership in the Confederacy.

Rendell was a democratic republic located in Martial Space, the only one of its kind. The nation was founded in 31,794 CE as a satellite state of Sagittarium. It gained partial independence when Sagittarium democratized and joined the Confederacy in 41,184 CE. It has a fairly modest size and population compared to other member states, but it has taken great care to live up to its original colonizer. Rendell has a large military in part due to generous funding it receives from Sagittarium and in part due to the fallout of the War of the Ancients. Rendell was hit hard by the Quintet Puontari Federation, so much so that the population never reached pre-war levels while Rendell existed. The native Ekrosians only have a population in the trillions. Compared to the almost one quintillion humans within the nation, they are practically endangered.

The government was headed by 7 heads of government, each presiding over a different branch of government and each representing a different district. The branches cycled between all 7 of the districts located in Rendell, allowing each one to elect an official to a particular branch every seven election cycles (which each last 4 Ekrosian years, 20 standard years). These leaders are not held accountable to the people while in office in any way besides through elections, however, the representatives to the Confederacy are directly elected. After the formation of the Boreal Federacy, the native Ekrosians were given rights over the state, transitioning Rendell to the "Ekrosian Martial Republic."

The State of Tenshi

Flag Type Capital World Founding Species Notes
Tenshi2.png 2.699 Yakusoku Humans The State of Tenshi has the highest GDP per capita of any nation in the CoB

The State of Tenshi was one of the few monarchies that were a part of the Confederacy of Borealis in its long history. It technically qualified as a democracy due to the parliament and monarch having equal power. The nation was technically not a monarchy since the role of the monarch is fulfilled by thousands of individuals that each possess a "portion of the crown." The Crown was divided amongst the members of 11 noble houses to form one cohesive body. For over 75,000 years, the State controlled the entirety of the Ventemir Galaxy. Currently it is much smaller, controlling Kanadett, which is a star cluster, and only a portion of Ventemir.

The nation, like so many others in the Confederacy, formed after the collapse of the Yohjan Confederacy. Hundreds of ultra-wealthy individuals fled to remote antimatter production plants they owned when things became too unstable at home. With them they brought large numbers of drones and other infrastructure to maintain their quality of life, intentionally designing their hideout to be post-scarcity without the need of a stable government. When the Yohjan Confederacy finally fell, Kanadett had over one hundred thousand inhabitants. After a brief conflict, Senku Takanashi I was crowned king. He used their advanced antimatter production to force nations to capitulate to his will by threatening to cut off the supply. He knew not to push other countries too far, as they would be able to eventually make their own, but he also knew that doing so would mean decades of losing to their enemies. In the end, Kanadett was able to amass large amounts of resources from almost every nation in the galaxy, and even some of those outside of it. The Lowuks Entente, the nation controlling the Ventemir Galaxy at the time, was so indebted to them that Tenshi was able to essentially slowly buy the country. By the time the confederacy was fully established, Tenshi already controlled vast swathes of the galaxy.

Currently, the State of Tenshi is much smaller than it was at its height. Despite this, the nation has the highest GDP per capita of any nation in the CoB, entirely due to the ludicrously profitable Takanashi Antimatter Corporation owned by the Crown itself. It will likely leave the Confederacy in 100 years to avoid the full dissolution of the nobility that would accompany full federalization.

Associated Nations

The Entente of Ventemir

Flag Type Capital World Founding Species Notes
Saka.png 3.00 Ayomi Atlins, Humans, Legions, Orcubor The nation used to be controlled by the State of Tenshi, but a succession crisis caused the nation to break away. It is now controlled by the "Sakagami House," a group once part of the Tenshin Nobility.

The Entente of Ventemir is the nation occupying the third largest satellite of Via Aylathiya, the Ventemir Galaxy. The nation is a constitutional aristocracy with strong democratic principles. The aristocracy as a whole takes the place of a monarch in terms of government affairs, with the aristocracy holding on to various executive powers normally afforded to presidents. The aristocracy operates as a sort of hybrid noble organization in which monarchs representing all four species in the galaxy rule it in a "rule of four," one for each species. This system persists to this day, even as the Entente of Ventemir more fully integrates into the Boreal Federacy.

Shev'ra

ShevraStandard.png 2.490 Eydafrei Shevins This nation is one of the smallest associated states with the Confederacy of Borealis.

Shev'ra is a small nation located in the Ejeunor Galaxy that controls about 80,000 star systems. While originally a part of the Yohjan Confederacy, the damage done by the split and the subsequent wars plaguing the galaxy caused its inhabitants to isolate themselves from galactic affairs. The relations between Shev'ra and the Confederacy involved a simple treaty stipulating that the Confederacy and Shev'ra would have a mutual-defense pact to handle outside threats to both nations. It left the Confederacy when it federalized.
