The Inner UniverseEdit
The Inner Universe is where the United League of Planets has the most control. The Corpers and the Crossbones Exchange wage war, whether it be consumer war, or battles. Free market trade and a competitive business market has created the strongest economy known in the entire history of civilization- the rich are getting richer and the poor are buying condos. The combined personal wealth of the citizens of the Inner Universe have ensured a quality of life unthinkable for some races just a scant two centuries prior, proving that while money can't buy love or happiness, it can buy pretty much everything else -- long life, perfect health, protection.
The Inner Universe is where the tech is, it's a very structured life, if you prefer living among colonists, miners, mercenaries, and avoid the lawyers, and corporations, maybe you'd like to live in the Frontier instead.
