The Gordian Reach Authority is a neutral government of the Gordian Reach and D`astan Sectors. Governed by the Counts of Serenno it can trace its roots back to an early incarnation of the Corporate Sector Authority. The capital of the Authority is the planet Torque.

Early History

The Gordian Reach and D`astan Sectors have a history of settlers. The ancient Massassi settled on the jungle moon of Yavin 4 but eventually went extinct after constructing large temples for unknown purposes. It is believed (though not verified) that this ancient warrior race was brought to the planet by ancient Sith. However, Some archeological sites have pointed to a different line of thought which suggests the Massassi evolved on the planet.

On the planet of Serenno in the D`astan Sector, records were uncovered that suggested the planet was originally governed by an ancient Sith Empire. The culture of this empire has shaped the Gordian Reach and the D`astan regions down to this day. The planet is known to have several noble houses, the most prominent one being the Noble House of Serenno, which later the planet was renamed to after they were able to mobilize the other Houses into expelling the ancient Sith from their world.

The two sectors, Gordian Reach and D`astan, though part of the same government, seem to have developed in two different ways. For the Gordian Reach, the mysteries of Yavin 4 and the large Massassi Temples play a part in the belief structure of the inhabitants of the Yavin, Krylon and Torque systems. D`astan, however, provides a more progressive and independent society.

Modern History

During the Clone Wars the planet of Serenno was believed to have affiliated with the Confederacy of Independent Systems. When the Confederacy collapsed and the might of the Galactic Empire rose to replace the Galactic Republic, the planet seceded from all major political affiliations. The Counts of Serenno (Which replaced the noble houses of old) led by Leto Ketwol utilized this moment of chaos to assume the governorship of the Gordian Reach sector thus aligning the two regions under one vision. The planet Torque was given the designation as the capital of the Reach, thus shifting attention away from the more well-known system of Yavin whilst Krylon was utilized for its industrial potential.

This combination eventually attracted corporations to the region that were led by people who could trace their own origins back to a version of the Corporate Sector Authority as well as other Governments. The Counts of Serenno could thus assume direct authority over the regions through this newly established government whilst allowing free enterprise and industry to grow.

In Year 20, Day 1 the Kushibah System was discovered by explorers scouting the Gordian Reach sector. This introduced the Kushiban into the galaxy as an independent planetary government within the Reach. Despite this, the Gordian Reach Authority maintains a security presence in the system to ensure the safety of all who visit the sector.

Currently, the population of the two regions combined exceeds 21 billion inhabitants.

Government and Politics

The Gordian Reach Authority is completely neutral, it holds no blacklists and accepts all who mean well and do not do harm to others. As a result of its history, the government has formed into a technocracy, an ideological view that the leadership of the Authority is recognized based on their expertise in a given area of responsibility, particularly with regard to scientific or technical knowledge, however this has also expanded into cultural and civil aspects of government life.

The Consul leads the Authority as the Head of State and is supported by a Viceroy who is tasked as the Head of Government. To support this executive the Authority has a council of appointed leaders to help shape the legislative view of the Government. Some roles can be held by more than one person depending on the needs of the Government and given the strong industrial and commercial presence the Council can also weigh in on commercial issues as well as political ones.

Finally, the Security Police act as the local law enforcement for the Authority, policing, and protecting the area from criminal activity and monitoring all inbound and outbound traffic.

Society and Culture

The GRA has sponsored a Colonial Shockball league team named The Massassi Madness for the Y21 season. The team will be managed by Bossive and features players from various organizations affiliated with the GRA.
