Independent Worlds League
The Independent Worlds League (IWL) was formed roughly half a century ago, after Humans arriving in 2855 Cerberi began to expand their borders into their territory. This autonomous region is encircled by the territory controlled by the Solarian Corporated Systems, and has since seen much interstellar traffic in regards to immigration/emigration, and imports/exports.
The league was proposed by the Roni, ratified by the Cephaloids, and enforced by the Juntians. The Slani have been recently inducted into the treaty, though not out of any interest of their own. As a political entity, the league is on an unstable foundation, with the root of the issue being the abuse of the Roni from both within, and without. The Cephaloids have a history with the Roni that has improved considerably in all the time that the two races have coexisted, but the Solarian’s exploitation of immigrant Roni, combined with a lack of effort on the part of the Ta’Roni ruling body to stop Solarian corporate interests from establishing themselves on the planet, has weakened the league.
Neither isolationist, nor xenophobic, the IWL seeks to preserve the rights of its natural born citizens, and their homes. With a small flotilla of interplanetary capable military vessels, they are able to defend themselves from pirates, but with such little power projection they simply cannot hope to go on the offensive. The other political powers in the sector don’t seem to mind that fact.
