Introduction

The United Stars of the Galaxies, much more commonly and simply known as the Union is a multi cultural mega society. Its core region incorporates much of the Upward sector of the Milkyway galaxy, but it also extends in the other sectors and even to a number of of other galaxies, chief among them of course the Andromeda galaxy.

It is a society of almost unlimited resources and great wealth. It is a law abiding society with a very strong military that defeated every outside force or threat so far. Citizens don’t think twice about making a GalNet call clear across two galaxies to share some gossip or familiy news. Communication is very advanced, and no matter the distance, as long as it is within GalNet instantaneous.

Citizens can and do travel to the furthest corners of Union space on heavily subsidised Space Bus lines, trade and conduct business with a common accepted currency the Union Credit unit (UCU); enjoy free education and have perhaps the best health care in the known history of the galaxy. Provided by the most advanced medical service ever known to exist. Able to treat the most unusual life forms and the rarest of diseases for free.

If you would have to describe the Union in only one word, you would never fail using the word diverse.

There are almost five thousand member societies and species. The smallest beings are the individual Camogi, no bigger than a Terran rice corn and the biggest member by volume is the Sentient Matter Cloud of the Vanuur region, expanding over almost half a cubic light year. As diverse as their biology, size, weight and governing systems are; they are united under Union law.

No known society in galactic history is as lawful and as content as the Union. With a crime rate of less than one percent and a citizen satisfaction of more than 90 percent.

Meaning less than one percent of the entire Union Citizen population is ever considering breaking the law and less than ten percent of Union citizens are dissatisfied with the current state of things and the government.

There is no hunger, no social hard ship and thus the core reasons for crime eroded.

That is the official opinion and beleive of most.

One percent of a population, that is counted in Centillions is still a very big number.

The shiny, mighty Union is not perfect. Some say a free society can never be.

There is a tarnished side, a dirty Under belly if you will

These are tales of that other side.
