This report presents the latest data on expansion and withdrawal among the galaxy's minor factions.
Here are the latest factions to have expanded into new systems:
LHS 3516 Fortune Company
Idomatyritu Travel Industries
Allied Kui Xenab Regulatory State
Brotherhood of Caerete
HIP 5712 Guardians of Tradition
Friends of Kotigen
Defence Party of NLTT 57668
League of Ross 1015
Expansions occur when a minor faction reaches a sufficient level of influence and there is a populated system within striking distance. Expansion is costly, so when a faction expands, the wealth and development level of the system it controls are temporarily reduced.
Here are the latest factions in withdrawal:
Limapa Blue State Commodities
Ross 210 Pro-Alliance Party
HR 8170 Brotherhood
HIP 13269 Silver Drug Empire
Regulatory State of Kausan
Lao Zi Blue Fortune Corp.
Factions are considered to be in withdrawal if their level of influence within a system drops below a certain level. If the faction's influence remains low for a total of five days, the faction must leave the system entirely. If the faction manages to increase its level of influence, it remains in the system.
