Across the thousands of worlds of the galaxy there exists countless governments, corporations, religions, mercenary bands, and other organisations. In the course of governing its vast swathes of territory, the Galactic Empire maintains diplomatic dealings with hundreds of major organisations such as governments, influential corporations, and powerful issue-motivated groups. Due to associated prohibitions on trade with enemies, configuring Identify Friend or Foe (IFF) systems, and clear expression of relations with organisations, the Empire publishes a list of its major Diplomatic Stances.
This list identifies the Empire’s allied, friendly, and adversarial relationships. If an organisation is not found on this list, then the Empire’s stance is to be considered officially neutral.
