Confederation of Castelia


The Confederation of Castelia is a collection of nine populated planets and their eighty seven colonies. The Confederation is a tightly connected system of independent governments with the central government controlling military forces and deals with issues regarding the Confederation as a whole. Local, planet side issues are handled by independent governments. It is based in the system of Westeros in the Loma star cluster and has jurisdiction over the many of the adjacent systems. Society in the Confederation is generally very accepting and open, especially so on the planet of Castelia, the namesake Confederation, which is generally regarded as the nicest planet in the entire Loma cluster. The Confederation’s economy is highly mechanized, with most physical tasks handed down to machines and semi-autonomous AIs. This holds true when it comes to the military too, most of planet side fighting units are composed of droids with personnel only used when making strategic decisions and pilot work, some of the few fields where flesh is still more efficient than machine. Along with the heavy use of droids and other machines, the people themselves have also become heavily cyberized , having small implants that allow them instant communication with machines.

In the year 2119 the of the old era, 50 million settlers descended on the virgin planets of the Westeros systems, in hopes of establishing a utopia free from strife and conflict.
Four planets, Castelia, Arilove, Fen-Tris, and Aalu are colonized, establishing the four original colonies.
Peace and prosperity followed as the planets are developed and their first cities bloomed. The population skyrocketed as the Federation declared war upon the Xindi. Millions fearing another catastrophic war, fled to the Westeros system among others.
In the year 2192, a large quantity of highly enriched Red Mater was discovered in the crust of Artemis, the second moon of the gas giant Leo. The profits derived from the mining operation made the Westeros system a subject of prosperity and jealousy.

First Galois War:

Casus belli

In the year 2203 hostilities erupted between the four planets of Westeros and Galois Republic. The epicenter was the jungle planet of Jannah. The planet belonged to Galois space but a group of *wildcat colonists from the Westeros system colonized the planet without the Galoian government’s consent. The Galoian government demanded that the colonists leave, but they refused. The Westeros governments backed the colonist’s claims to the planet citing that they were there first and that the governments of Weteros did not recognized Galoian claims to Jannah. Tentions escalated when the Galoian government sent armed ships to remove the colonist by force, the government of Arilove, one of the Westeros governments dispatched the fifth fleet in response. Stalemate lasted several months as both sides sent more troops. In the year 2204, the Galoian government tried to land troops on Jannah, but the landing vessels were shot down by Jannahian militia. The government of Galois subsequently declared war on Arilove, starting the first Galois war.

Initial fighting

Galois achieved initial success, successfully occupying Jannah and three other Westeros backed colonies. As the fighting got closer to the Westeros system, the other governments entered the conflict on Arilove’s side. This act was largely symbolic as only the government of Fen-Tris had any sizably military force.

Fall of Fen-Tris

In the year 2209, the defenses of the Westeros system was breached by the Galoian armada.
