The Anzatan Commonwealth, formerly known as the New Anzat Order, was a Mid Rim government. It was comprised of a variety of different races, from all corners of the galaxy. The capital city of the government was Nova Anzatia, located on the Commonwealth's capital desert planet of Anzat.
Prior to its merger with the Tresario Star Kingdom in Year 15, the Anzatan Commonwealth was one of the oldest governments in the galaxy.
The Anzatan Commonwealth is a small government which has faced numerous controversies and revolutions in its long history. Although the Commonwealth is primarily based out of the Anzat system, in Maldrood, from which the Government gets its name, the Commonwealth does hold a few planets in numerous other sectors as well. Both the Anzati and Siniteen have their homeplanets under the control of the Anzatan Commonwealth.
The Anzatan Commonwealth is ruled by a King or Queen, the second in command is the Chancellor, and a board of chosen advisors known as the "Privy Council". Each member of the Privy Council is a Minister of their own Ministry with the exception of a few members who no longer run a Ministry but still are consulted for general Council matters. These are known just as "Advisors".
The Commonwealth currently has 5 Ministries: Commerce, Culture, , Infrastructure and State. The leader of each provides a seat on the Privy Council to ensure each aspect of government is fairly represented on the Council.
The Commonwealth has 5 nationalised corporations. Anzatan Resource Extractions, Cerberus Corporation, Outback Industries, Starypan/SunHui Spaceworks and Anzat Medical. Each one is lead by a President.
The Commonwealth holds exclusivity over the Razor Fighter technology, and New Anzat Order Flightsuit. In addition to this, it is one of the two Governments who hold Kaloth BattleCruiser technology. Through Cerberus Corporation the Commonwealth also has 5 droid schematics, including the Battle Droid.
Thousands of years ago, a prophet — Jerriko — created a theocratic state known as the Anzat Order in the Outer Rim. Before the days of the Old Republic, the Anzat Order was the dominant power in the galaxy, and its people were one of the first space-faring races. Through years of space travel, the world of Anzat became a multi-cultural centre of the galaxy.
The decline of the Anzat Order occurred when its ruling Dynastic Minister was assassinated by the nobility. A civil war ensued; the nobility triumphed. However, they soon became drunk with power, and their rule degenerated into despotism. At last, the Anzati people revolted and overthrew the nobility.
The New Anzat Order (NAO) was founded by President Dunkler Klerus, an Anzati noble. In Year 1 the New Anzat Order, Hapes Consortium, and Falleen Federation under Dunkler, Andrew Starfyre and Tholin Dur`aak respectively worked together in attempt to form the Tri-Star Alliance which was to be a neutral power bloc to counter the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance. However once Jessy James succeeded Starfyre, he cancelled the Hapes Consortium's involvement in the project, thus withdrawing access to the Nova-class Battle Cruiser, the plan fell apart. This was cited as one of the reasons Alex Tylger resigned as Prime Minister of the Hapes Consortium later that year. After a fruitful beginning, the New Anzat Order declined under a series of corrupt administrators. These administrators — such as Barons Vyk Drago and Arca Fenris — sold its ships, vehicles and cities for personal gain. Sickened by their actions, Yarbles, the Minister of Defense of the New Anzat Order, led what is now called "the Panaceas Revolution." His revolt culminated in a decisive battle on Year 3 Day 70 and the expulsion of Baron Fenris.
Lauded as the champion of the people, Yarbles became Prime Minister of the New Anzat Order and instituted a collectivist ideology. He rebuilt the navy and established a housing project for refugees displaced by the Panaceas Revolution. He also began developing the economy of the New Anzat Order.
When Yarbles stepped down, his protégé Malakai Brooks became leader of the New Anzat Order. Brooks' attempted to strengthen the Anzati state and improve its economy. Under his leadership the New Anzat Order was able to provide jobs to many of its citizens and ensured that every civil servant was paid a wage.
Due to issues unrelated to his office, Minister Brooks resigned as Prime Minister and became the Minister of Defence. A younger individual, Camaris sa Vinitta, became the Prime Minister of the New Anzat Order. Picking up where Minister Brooks left off, Camaris tried to lead the Anzati state into a new age of prosperity; however, such hopes abruptly ended with his unexpected death.
The reign of Perrin Wolfstar saw many changes; in particular, the end of relations with the Hapes Consortium and the beginning of hostilities with the Galactic Empire. Believing the Empire would go easier on the New Anzat Order without him as leader, Wolfstar resigned and Admiral Enzo Delaere assumed power.
Admiral Delaere plundered the Anzati state and then surrendered the government to the Galactic Empire. Emperor Vodo Bonias installed Princess Gabriella Storm as Moff of Anzat and leader of the New Anzat Order. Storm brutally subjugated the Anzati people and executed all those who opposed her reign. However, she was disgraced when implicated in an Eidolan plot that resulted in the dissolution of an Imperial medical corporation.
Storm was replaced by Moff Vlademar von Ismay III, the youngest legitimate son of the late Victor von Ismay. He ruled with a fair and loyal hand until finally pushed too far by the Empire. Encouraged by his staff and family, Vlademar seceded from the Empire, abandoned the title of Moff and embraced the mantle of Chancellor.
Vlademar was assassinated by Daniel Jade Antaria under orders from Wilhelm von Ismay. Wilhelm took the position of Chancellor and expanded the military and political boundaries of the New Anzat Order. During this period, the the Anzati state became closely allied with the Rebel Alliance. Shortly thereafter, Wilhelm stepped down temporarily for personal reasons and was replaced by Owen von Ismay. A year later, Owen von Ismay was voted out of office, in a controversial election which some believed to have been rigged, and Wilhelm returned as leader.
During this time the New Anzatan Order was subject to many controversies. During the early days of Year 8, while Auron Kun was leading an exodus from the Kathol Republic, Wilhelm intervened on the behalf of Auron, which Kathol believed to be a violation of the Non-Aggression Pact. In a report entitled A sad day for Kathol/New Anzati relations.... the Kathol Republic outlined their objections to Wilhelm's intervention. A follow up interview later that year reaffirmed this fact, in a report entitled Lead KR Diplomat gives his opinion in recent interview. This was a start of a long war which culminated in a Krath Dynasty victory of the Anzatan Commonwealth on the planet Eldavorn, and Wilhelm reluctantly signing ceasefire.
They were also reported as having secretly conducted military operations against Mandalore in a news post entitled Secret Military Operation Uncovered! Mandalore threatened by the NAO!. In addition to this, Wilhelm tried to coerce the Trade Federation into diplomatic pacts through blackmail and theft, resulting in drastic action by the Trade Federation and a public announcement entitled TF declares NAO rogue government, expels diplomats....
Near the end of Year 8, many companies that were collectively known as Tamerin Foundation left the Kathol Republic over political differences and moved into the Bortele Cluster. The sector contained the Ingo system, controlled by the New Anzat Order, after a deal was brokered the Tamerin Foundation agreed to become affiliated companies of the New Anzat Order. During their time there, Auron Tamerin devised the plans for the formation of the Anzatan Commonwealth. After lengthy meetings with Wilhelm von Ismay the New Anzat Order changed government into the Anzatan Commonwealth for the first time in its history. The name was changed officially in Year 9 Day 84. Auron was appointed as Prime Minister and the Commonwealth saw the creation of a Parliament with political parties taking up the reigns of legislating future law with the Privy Council taking a step back from that role. The Commonwealth also incorporated extended territory of the systems owned by the Tamerin Foundation and the development of the Ingo system. During this time a construction error made by Kathol Mining Corporation resulted in loss of Commonwealth control of the planet Eldavorn. The Krath Dynasty seized their chance, and captured the planet. Commonwealth holdings on the planet were surrendered as part of a peace agreement which Wilhelm was forced into by his privy council.
Mandalore and the Tion Hegemony were also defeating the Commonwealth through construction in hidden systems in the Maldrood sector, ultimately resulting in the Commonwealth losing the sector. This was followed by a Mandalore press release at the start of Year 9, entitled New Anzat Sector Restoration Announced.
In Year 10 Day 112 it was reported that the former leader of the Anzatan Commonwealth was dead, assassinated by Jedi Master Soki Ionian, resulting in Wilhelm's wife Queen Keishi Miahr assuming power. This coup was supported by all members of high command, ending Wilhelm's rule. Some resistance inside of the Commonwealth by old loyalists remained to the new monarch at first.
Shortly after his death enemies of the Commonwealth re-opened diplomatic discussions. By Year 10 Day 152 it was publicly announced via the Galactic News Service that the Commonwealth was now at peace. Along with the formal declaration of peace and other terms, there was also territory consolidation. The Commonwealth exchanged territory within the Allied Tion sector for the two systems within the Maldrood sector which were used previously to take control of the Maldrood sector, thus securing control of the sector for the Commonwealth.
Those loyal to Wilhelm such as Caitiri (Ja`Brai) von Ismay, wife of then Vigo Owen von Ismay of Black Sun, and Bunres Voflis embezzled funds from Cerberus Corporation and Starypan/SunHui Spaceworks respectively, claiming Government assets for themselves as repayment for unrecorded debts to House Ismay. Caitiri continued her personal campaign against the Anzatan Commonwealth via the Galactic News Service and other media before being captured during a violent revolt within Black Sun itself. She was imprisoned on-board a ship owned by Natsuke Haines before ultimately being arrested by Soki Ionian. The Commonwealth released a press release entitled Anzat Apprehends Wanted Criminal. Shortly afterwards the firm Black Star Recycling continued this vendetta. Anzatan Commonwealth Minister of Culture Alexander von Ismay was later caught spying to Black Star Recycling's leader Sirella Corleone, and exiled from the Commonwealth in lieu of arrest in respect for his past contributions. Alexander quickly took up a directorship within Black Star, before moving on and forming his own criminal organisation, the Binaros Smuggling Alliance, which largely fought with the New Republic.
The Deren Strife Incident
On Year 12 Day 144 Commonwealth Citizen Deren Strife was arrested by Chief of State Taka Aioko of the New Republic for the alleged crime of being a member of a Criminal Organisation, he was accused of formerly being an agent of Black Sun and they claimed that he was not active enough to be protected by any diplomatic agreements. The Anzatan Commonwealth claimed even if he was an agent of Black Sun, while within the Anzatan Commonwealth the New Republic's arrest is in violation of the Non-Aggression Pact. As a compromise the Anzatan Commonwealth requested a trial judged by a neutral party, such as Gilbert Taylor of the Triumvirate Coalition however the New Republic refused claiming as a former member of a Criminal Organisation he is not entitled to a trial. As no agreement could be reached the Anzatan Commonwealth cancelled the Non-Aggression Pact. Shortly afterwards the Galactic Empire under the rule of Emperor Cherokee offered an unconditional peace agreement and Non-Aggression Pact which ended the Commonwealths long standing war with the Empire. The New Republic claimed this treaty with the Empire amounted to "Treason" and Anzatan relations with the Galactic Alliance continued to deteriorate. The Anzatan Commonwealth began an increased program of militarisation in order to defend their borders from further New Republic aggression.
The Commonwealth Enters the War
Shortly after the Deren Strife Incident Queen Keishi Miahr decided to take a step back from leadership and appointed Chancellor Azarin Isard leader. On Year 14 Day 184, Chancellor Azarin Isard announced to the Galaxy that the Commonwealth had joined the Imperial Union, joining the Galactic Empire, Black Sun, and the Tresario Star Kingdom in their ongoing struggle against the criminal governments of the Galactic Alliance. This new alliance is ample evidence of just how much Anzatan-Imperial relations have changed for the better in recent years.
