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:
Parhul Silver Electronics Hldgs
Allied Kui Xenab Regulatory State
League of Ross 1015
Defence Force of LHS 1122
Gliese 9106 Partners
Zhu Vedani Blue Transport Dev
New Rutujil People's Party
NLTT 8084 Natural Services
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:
Eranin Peoples Party
Bodb Dearg Order
Confederation of Dahan
Peng Dung Jet Creative Network
Cegreeth Citizens' Forum
Bureau of Tetrian Liberty Party
Eta Horologii Gold Vision PLC
HIP 117865 Empire Pact
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.
