- The World
The Galactic Federation is a predominantly human superpower in the Hyperborean Galaxy which resides on Cosmopolaris, a huge planet that contains only one city, but this city takes 100% of the planet’s territory. Obsessed with creating a healthy nation, its authoritarian government prohibits rum, fat food, and pasta. The Federation is currently in the state of Cold War with the Arkhan Dominion, and it makes it pretty serious – they prefer to ruin the economy of its own citizens to get any military advantage over their rivals.
The Arkhan Dominion is a typical feudal monarchy ruled by a king, a queen, and a bunch of hyper-sensitive aristocrats. It is currently in the state of Cold War with the Galactic Federation. The Dominion society is mostly known for its extremely classy system, which defines not only one’s social mobility and opportunities, but literally how high they live in a planet-sized spiral tower called the Spiregrad. The poor live at the bottom of the tower, while the court and the throne are situated at the top. Its nobility members are messed up with their own cultural superiority, beauty extravaganza, and hedonistic lifestyle.
The Mallard Order is a powerful and devoted cult of duck worshippers. They believe they are the only ones who can protect the galaxy from extinction. They wear duck-looking hats, operate duck-looking ships, and inhabit Lagoon – a fractured world of flying islands, floating lakes, and astonishing hanging gardens. Despite the fact that the Mallard Order doesn’t have armies or large territories, it has been able to resist the Dominion for decades. The power of the Mallard Order lies in their unity and devotion.
Even though those weirdos wearing colanders on their heads can be found all over the galaxy, the Pastafarians do have a world of their own. They inhabit a tiny planet called Pastafaria – a giant ball of spaghetti and meatballs. Pastafaria is a planet rumored to be made of pasta, gifted by His Noodliness, the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The Pastafarians prefer to stay out of the global galaxy conflicts and live in peace and harmony, just as His Noodliness guides them to. They do not have any fleet or military units and rely solely on the protection of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Empire of the Holy Lance
The Empire of the Holy Lance used to be the largest governmental entity the galaxy has ever seen. It was ruled by Damon Lance and dedicated itself to cleansing the galaxy of any non-human races by launching Holy Crusades against them. Even though defeated decades ago, the alien races still remember the genocide humanity committed against them. There are rumors of a group of cultists who vow to resurrect their long-dead leader and restore their glory.
