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:
Lundji Major Corporation
Earls of LHS 283
Byel Tan Jet United Corp.
Canary Mining Corporation
Nidarijedi Empire Party
Traditional Velliep Justice Party
Ch'anjie Netcoms Commodities
Wolf 1414 Nobles
Tomani Blue State Co
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:
New Wolf 248 Independents
Social Mombawet Revolutionary Party
Confederacy of Mandubii
Nisgayo for Equality
United LHS 1101 for Equality
Official Huano Regulatory State
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.
