Well, every planet I show will be part of that federation; it will be part of the republic, but the capital of another system. In fact, the republic consists even of more stellar systems than I'll show, because other players joint the republic with their planets. In that case, the home planet of a player becomes the new capital of the system in which this home planet takes place, and the owner becomes gouverneur of the whole system. However, it still remains part of the federation, with a lot of privileges. Like, well, in Switzerland, where you have diferent cantons with a huge amount of autonomy, but they still remain part of the Swiss Confederation. The San Leonese are no imperialists, they rely on trade, and they made the experience that it's much better for the economy to decentralize. It's also another approach to human expansion than the USCM has, which is the militaristic, ideological enemy. San Leone is not an ideal state, but the government is heavily anti-centralistic, as San Leone was originally a rogue colony which seperated itself from Earth.
