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:
Democrats of LTT 9104
Bureau of HR 827 Constitution Party
HIP 14676 Dominion
Kokopatji Gold Fortune Exchange
Progressive Party of Gullveti
Future of Guayambaan
Angelic Church of Messi
Menero Kimi Empire Group
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:
Ualangur Gold Comms Corp.
Movement for LHS 28 for Equality
Ross 1003 Prison Colony
Pacalite Universal Systems
CD-47 990 Company
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.
