The Federal Commonwealth (fully named the “Federal Commonwealth of Worlds”, and sometimes shortened to simply the “Commonwealth”) is the highest international and interstellar governmental body of the human race. Its stated purpose is to ensure the political stability of member states and to regulate internal legal and diplomatic matters. However, it is frequently perceived as championing several causes, such as the advancement of technology, preservation of culture, and economic prosperity.
The Federal Commonwealth possesses limited formal authority over member governments, leading to conflict and political struggles when it tries to enforce its agenda over member states that seek to preserve their independence. However, it does possess significant political, military, and economic power through the assets of its charter nations.
The Commonwealth operates through a variety of smaller bodies that oversee particular aspects of human affairs. The three governing bodies are the General Assembly, Security Council, and High Tribunal. All other agencies are subject to one of these three.
