The United Empire of Earth Senate is the sole representative body of the interstellar government and comprised of senators representing UEE planets, who serve for five years and can serve multiple terms. The Senate's primary role is to pass legislation and act as an advisor to the Imperator. Only the largest and most influential planets have multiple Senators, with Earth having the most at five. Kallis is one of the few systems without a Senator.
UEE Political Parties
Centralist Party (C) - Traditional even somewhat libertarian-styled political ideology. It’s about sustaining and maintaining the status quo, and excelling through the values of humanity. Embrace the past, be proud of where you came from, etc. Needless to say, they support keeping Earth as the capital.
Transitionalist Party (T) - Relatively recent “People’s Party” formed around promoting a progressive human agenda. Most of their rhetoric is aimed towards “the future.” They obviously support Terra as the center of the UEE.
Universal Party (U) - Institution based Ideology. Government and systems will guide people. Seen by some as blue blood, wealth-based ideologues.
