The Intergalactic Confederacy, (Not to be confused with the Intergalactic Council, a union for larger nations) was an intergalactic governing body lasting from 8017 - 22000, whose legislation presided over all minor civilizations in the Borealis Cluster. The IC was founded in 8017 by Diplomatic Chancellor Ik Klap'tuk, and the first Confederacy meeting took place in Xcathlia's Global Senate. The last Confederate Officer was Ted Willis, who originated from Mars. The Intergalactic Confederacy was comprised of many system-states and planet-states, the most influential member of which was Earth. those worlds settled by the Xcathli, and several other places. The official currency was the C-Unit.
Ik Klap'tuk, a praised diplomat, originally founded the Intergalactic Confederacy in 8017. At the time, the only two members were Xcathlia and Barr'Isha, an arrangement that was only possible due to the Xcathli's advanced technology. The former members went as follows:
- Sol System, 8019
- Chayyim, 8023
- Derva, 8027
- Di'hwaj, 8054
- Denil, 8097
- Pupra, 8098
- Daylie, 8103
- Isiaeor, 8104
- The members of the Alliance from the First Intergalactic War, 13231
After the Treaty of 8127, all remaining intergalactic leaders were brought to Xcathlia's Global Senate, where they were sworn in as new members of the Confederacy.
First Galactic War
When the First Galactic War erupted in the Milky Way, the Intergalactic Confederacy contacted the Confederacy of Borealis in the famous Ventris Conference. Together, they provided aid to the victims of war and dispatched military fighters to redirect some of the bombardments. It was predicted that without them, the Giokans would have gone extinct.
In the midst of this war, the Andromeda Uprisings were proceeding in the distant Andromeda Galaxy. From 9134 to 9167, the galaxy was being rocked with heavy bombardments. The Intergalactic Confederacy's associates informed Tar Aboth, the Confederate Officer at the time, who dispatched several military drones to contain the uprisings. It succeeded from 9137 to 9154, at which point Clospet ships dropped dangerous plasma bombs on the Eonia, the headquarters of the Intergalactic Confederacy's Andromeda Division. As a result, Tar Aboth was forced to launch the Ytricite, a doomsday weapon capable of destroying stars. It was fired at the star Micre, but redirected at the last second by Clospet fighters. It was sent to an unnamed star, where it detonated. The resulting blast could be seen 2 million light-years away, including on Xcathlia, where Tar Aboth believed it meant the end of the war. Despite the Ytricite not hitting the right target, the Clospet began to fear the potential threat of bombardment, and eventually ended the uprisings in 9167.

First Intergalactic War
The Intergalactic Confederacy condemned the First Intergalactic War, neglecting to take a side in the matter. They were responsible for moderating the peace talks between the Confederacy and the Alliance. Following the end of the war, all members of the Alliance were annexed to the Confederacy. Following the events of the war, the Confederacy of Borealis became more hostile with the Intergalactic Confederacy. All calmed down soon enough, however, and as of today their relations are as strong as ever.
Acting much like the old UN of planet Earth but holding more influence in smaller government affairs, the Intergalactic Confederacy was a intergovernmental organization, established to promote interspecies cooperation and goodwill. When forming the Confederacy, the inhabitants of Xcathlia and Barr'Isha looked over the many histories of the multitude of planets in order to try and establish a working government body that would be the most effective.
When humanity joined the talks in 8018, they provided their own insights and their own history, specifically that of the League of Nations and the UN. As a result of this, there are four principal organs for the Confederacy, the General Senate, the Secretariat, the Supreme Court and the Eco-Social Council. The influence for these four organs came almost directly from the UN, even their old names are practically identical.
The General Senate was the main deliberative body of the Confederacy. They are tasked with the legislation of their entire influence, creating intergalactic law. They were also tasked with the ongoing security of the many member governments.
The Security Council was a member of the senate, and was responsible for keeping the peace throughout the universe. It was led by the Confederate Officer, a civil servant elected into office by other members of the senate.
The Secretariat was the backbone of the Confederacy. Behind the scenes, they supported the other three organs by providing studies, information, and facilities needed by Senate for their meetings. It also carried out tasks as directed by the other organs. It was led by the Head Secretary who was elected by the General Senate.
The Supreme Court dealt with major disputes, such as territorial disputes, horrific war crimes, illegal state interference and many other issues. Like the Confederate Officer, the Supreme Court Judge was elected by the General Senate.
The Eco-Social Council promotes economic and social goodwill throughout all the member states. They are also responsible for balancing the currencies of every member state, as the values of each form of currency go up and down nearly constantly. The General Senate elected a president to preside over meetings of the Council.
