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
LHS 1110 Patron's Principles
Coalition of Bodedi
League of Ch'i Lin Freedom Party
Tatapai Empire Assembly
Duduseklis Empire League
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:
Labour of Ethgreze
LP 811-17 Gold Energy Partners
Kuwemargl Patrons of Law
Thiin Gold Netcoms Interstellar
Baraswar Crimson Vision Ltd
Peng Dung Jet Creative Network
United Nang Ta-khian Confederacy
NLTT 8653 Empire Consulate
Serrot Blue General Group
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.
