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:
HIP 80700 Jet Central PLC
HIP 47058 Central Corp.
Dhak Union Party
Workers of Damontae Republic Party
Lemana Drug Empire
Natural Mehit Liberty Party
Liberals of Coyotani
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:
Ngakwites Empire Consulate
Shongbon Comms Systems
Yhele Empire Party
New Rutujil People's Party
Mikir Comms Corp.
HIP 14676 Coordinated
Hez Pef Jet Transport Company
United HIP 64498 Progressive Party
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.
