Dark Corners of the Galaxy
The New Republic
The New Republic has controlled the better part of the known galaxy for the about fifty years now. Since the fall of the Emperor and their taking of Coruscant, the Republic has had an uphill battle trying to reestablish the government amidst the remains of the Imperial forces and outside invasion such as those by the Ssi-Ruuk. However, a relative peace has pervaded for at least the last twenty years of their reign.
As of late however, it does seem that the New Republic has begun to expand beyond their means as Starship and security forces are spread thin over the galaxy. While they wish to continue to spread to the far corners of the galaxy, it may take some time for their resources to match their ambition.
