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:
39 Tauri Interstellar
Co-operative of Brangkalar
Chapter of Hikenk
Tian Xian Inc
Monarchy of Michael Pantazis
Brothers of Alchera
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:
Order of Ethgreze
HIP 65921 Silver Bridge Systems
Purple Universal Co
Future of Guayambaan
Kamarada Jet Legal Services
HIP 19198 Future
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.
