The Galactic Concord is composed of five branches: executive, judicial, diplomatic, legislative, and financial. Two branches-legislative and financial-are totally autonomous from the stellar nations, but they are also the weakest of the Concord’s divisions, restricted to internal operations. The judicial and diplomatic branches are extremely powerful, but their power is checked by appointees from each of the other twelve stellar nations. The executive branch has the authority to act independently, but it is restricted from significant expansion by the treaty.
All branches of the government meet on the planet Concord, located in the center of Concord Prime. The planet is open to visitors, tourists, and lobbyists of all species and nations, but the Concord’s space-to-ground security is quite thorough.
