GC Treaty of Concord
The Treaty of Concord established the groundwork for the Galactic Concord. The treaty finalized the borders between the stellar nations, established Concord Neutralities, allocated resources from the existing governments into a pool that became the property of the Galactic Concord, protected the t’sa by establishing their cluster of space as a Concord protectorate, and created the 13th stellar nation.
The Concord was established along the same lines as other stellar nations. Understandably, many nations feared the creation of a supemation that could one day overthrow them. The lessons of both Galactic Wars and the secessions that came with them were still fresh in the minds of the delegates.
The nation created by the treaty is a hybrid unlike any of the other stellar nations. Its borders are scattered across Old Space, creating neutral territory between wartime enemies. Its governmental bodies contain members from all of the stellar nations, each dedicated to governing on both a macro and micro level. The Concord’s military is likewise composed of memhers from every nation and species. In the years since the war, Concord authorities have successfully brought numerous small conflicts to a close. Skirmishes have proven Star Force and the Galactic Marines surprisingly effective after only a few years of organization.
