The Silesian Confederacy was a multi-system star nation. Unlike the rest of the galaxy, the Confederacy was a place where ongoing low-level conflicts were the norm rather than the exception.

Star Geography

The Confederacy, consisting of around sixty inhabited star systems, divided into nine sectors, was bordered by the Andermani Empire and Sidemore Republic to the galactic southwest, and the Basilisk System to the northeast.

History

Established as an enlightened confederation of planetary governments, at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century PD Silesia was a wretched mishmash of corrupt governments, star-navies for hire, piracy and trade opportunities.

Because of extensive piracy, Silesia became the proving ground where the Andermani Empire and the Star Kingdom of Manticore sent their newly minted officers and crews to patrol.

In 1900 PD, the Confederacy was considered the strategic target for expansion of the People’s Republic of Haven. However, in 1921 PD, the Confederacy was annexed by the Andermani Empire and the Star Kingdom of Manticore. Silesia’s central government assigned its powers to Andermani and Manticoran governments, but the system governments were retained.
