Commonwealth of Empires (ComEmp), The
Important historical multi-polity Galactic Empire.
Following the Version War there was a new federation - the Commonwealth of Empires, sometimes grandly called simply the "New Empire" and more usually the ComEmp - a new era of co-operation among the great powers that promised much.
The empaths of the Communion of Worlds were the most influential in its establishment, but even so they had little control over the entire ComEmp. This was a period of cultural, economic, and intellectual flowering. Eventually old rivalries, new emerging empires and houses and new crises caused it to break up, although the old empires remain tied together by their shared investments in the Wormhole Nexus and the God Web.
