Perseverance, Unity, Industry - This is the motto of the GIC. They are the ruling body of the Sirius galaxy. The core systems are shining beacons of civilization and safety. But the independence movement call it a dictatorship. A rule where only the illusion of democracy exists. However, free healthcare, a working welfare system and safety are things that many people find appealing.
In the core system most seem happy but out on the fringe they wonder...what right does one organization have to command a whole galaxy, its resources and the people?
