This report presents the latest data on expansion among the galaxy's minor factions.
Here are the latest factions to have expanded into new systems:
Workers of Velim People's Party
HIP 95256 Party
Yen Ek Empire League
Democrats of Muth
Progressive Party of Alacarakmo
Gorringa Crimson Advanced and Co
Mufrid Fortune Interstellar
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.
