Galactic News: Weekly Economic Report

29 FEB 3302

In this weekly digest, the latest GalNet data is compiled to show the economic state of a short list of minor factions and the star systems they inhabit.

Here are 10 of the 11,826 minor factions currently enjoying an economic boom:

Reshero Blue Organisation

Nialfi Dynasty

United Qi Lieh Constitution Party

Ndan Blue Galactic Organisation

Mob of Mikinn

Haghole Regulatory State

Crew of NLTT 2969

CD-52 187 Empire Consulate

Cauda Monarchy

HIP 5178 Nationalists

When in boom, the wealth of a system is increased for the duration and all trade missions have double the effect on influence. Boom can also positively increase a minor faction's influence. Boom can be entered by consistent trade profits and completed trade contracts. Booms tend to last until they naturally expire or until some other indicator takes precedence, such as famine.

Here are 10 of the 517 factions currently experiencing economic bust:

Defence Force of Duamta

Wadjetese Crimson Raiders

WISE 1506+7027 Company

HIP 27609 Brotherhood

PSPF-LF 2 Purple Family

Dragons of Kappa Fornacis

Yun Puggera Crimson Posse

Mikinn Gold Federal Industries

Mehuenomici Purple Family

New Groombridge 1618 Focus

The wealth of a system diminishes while in bust and the minor faction's influence is also lessened. The effect of trade contracts and actions do not contribute to boom while a bust is active. A bust generally has to run its course before ending.

Data is correct at time of publishing.

Community Goal: Conspiracy Theorist Appeals for Cartographic Data

29 FEB 3302

Notorious conspiracy theorist Ricardo Bentonio has issued an appeal for cartographic data with which to substantiate an extraordinary claim. According to a recent press statement, Bentonio has unearthed ancient records that prove the 29th of February 3302, which appears on all galactic calendars, should not exist. He has convinced Kruger 60 Free to fund the one-day appeal, believing that the cartographic data will prove him correct.

Bentonio elaborated on his theory at a press conference:

"We're not just talking about computers shutting down or ship systems failing. We're talking about the end of life as we know it! We're talking about the very fabric of space-time collapsing in on itself, and the entire universe coming to an end!"

Despite Bentonio having been widely derided as a tin foil hat-wearing crackpot, it's likely that the financial incentives he is offering will earn him some support. Pilots who want to contribute to the initiative are invited to deliver cartographic data to Jones Estate in the Groombridge 34 system on the 29th of February 3302.
