The Sobek Colonial Confederation is a civilized space community.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Sobek Colonial Confederation (a.k.a. Sobek Colonies or SCC) is a civilization located in the Alpha Quadrant of the Budullangr galaxy.

It was originally established in the region Poscovim Adjunct and was thoroughly explored by a single Traveller, HusbandVader during the Atlas Rises iteration. After NEXT the SCC relocated to the neighboring region Sea of Vuningar. Systems in the original region of Poscovim Adjunct renounced their membership after "The Great Reset".

Motto & Anthem[edit | edit source]

"Tielin Zimeyk Erd Cika" {Translation: "Never Step On Us!"}

The SCC motto is composed of four words, each from the four races that comprise the Confederation. The motto is derived from the symbol of a mythical creature known as a "rattlesnake", which would make a distinctive rattling noise to warn passers-by not to step on it. Although the rattlesnake would give fair warning to be left alone, it was also capable of inflicting a swift and deadly venomous attack against anyone who did not heed its warning. Such is the spirit of the Sobek Colonial Confederation.

The SCC anthem is "Do You Hear the People Sing?", (instrumental) a revolutionary call for liberty.

Benefits & Membership[edit | edit source]

The SCC brings the four races together to overcome Sentinel resistance to building a civilization. Independently, the Gek, Korvax and Vy'keen cannot build complex civilizations without attracting the wrath of the Sentinels. However, for unknown reasons, Sentinels do not interfere with cities built by Travellers of the fourth race. Therefore, Gek, Korvax and Vy'keen members of the SCC can take advantage of complex infrastructure built by the Travellers in order to better pursue their own interests.

Member systems of the SCC enjoy the following benefits:

  • Access to all SCC commodities and infrastructure
  • Common defense against outside threats
  • Greater civil liberty and protected negative rights
  • Unregulated free trade
  • A greater understanding of Travellers and the Atlas

To gain membership in the SCC systems must:

All member systems of the SCC retain independence and sovereignty belonging to the original controlling race (Gek, Vy'keen, Korvax) with the exception of any enumerated powers otherwise specifically delegated to the SCC in the Colonial Articles of Confederation.

Principles[edit | edit source]

Members of the Sobek Colonial Confederation adhere to the following principles:

  • Non-Aggression - Members shall not initiate force against any other members. The use of force shall be justified, proportional and subject to judicial review.
  • Free Markets - Trade between member systems shall be free of government regulation, prices being set exclusively by supply/demand.
  • New Frontiers - Members are committed to furthering discovery of the unknown through exploration.

Census[edit | edit source]

The Sobek Colonial Confederation consists of NPC-controlled star systems. The following non-NPC Travellers are declared citizens of the SCC:

The Sobek Colonial Confederation is organized as a Constitutional Confederation, where each member system retains its own sovereignty, with the exception of specific and limited powers delegated to the Colonial Assembly.

The Colonial Assembly is comprised of 3 branches

  • Triumvirate (Executive) - Triarchy
    • Imperator - HusbandVader
    • Magistrate
    • Prefect
  • Senate Building
    Senate Building
    Senate (Legislative) - Bicameral
    • Parliament
    • Council
  • The Forum
    The Forum
    Forum (Judicial) - Five Praetors

Each member System is also entitled one diplomatic representative known as an Ambassador. Ambassadors are authorized to address The Senate directly and are considered official spokespersons of their respective Systems. An Ambassador represents their System's interests within the SCC, often in close cooperation with their Tribune and Councilor counterparts. Although Ambassadors may function in consort with their System's Tribunes and Councilors they do not have voting rights in The Colonial Assembly.

Non-member Systems (or civilizations) may send a diplomatic representative, known as an Envoy, to directly address The Senate. In order to be officially recognized, an Envoy must be sponsored by at least 3 member Systems.

Capital[edit | edit source]

The Capital of the Sobek Colonial Confederation is located in the Ludwig Von Mises Colony on Cirche Major in the system Bifrost.

Triumvirate[edit | edit source]

The Executive branch consists of three individuals with equal voting rights and is called The Triumvirate. Any decision requires 2/3 vote.

  • The Imperator is elected by popular vote by all citizens of the SCC.
    • HusbandVader was the Princeps Civitatis or "First Citizen" who originally founded the Sobek Empire in October 2017. In February 2018 HusbandVader re-organized the old Empire, renounced absolute control, and established a constitutionally-limited, confederate-style government. As the first Imperator, HusbandVader will hold this position for the remainder of his life, or until he chooses to resign. The SCC will conduct a popular vote among all citizens to determine the succession of the Imperator after the position is vacated by the Princeps Civitatis.
  • The Magistrate is elected by simple majority by all members of Parliament.
  • The Prefect is elected by simple majority by all members of the Council.

Speeches[edit | edit source]

On the Great Reset, by Imperator HusbandVader on July 10th, 2018:

"Tribunes, Councilors, Citizens of The Confederation, I stand before you today with news that may shake the foundations of our very reality. The Atlas has bestowed upon me knowledge of an impending upheaval that will fundamentally change the universe as we know it. The exact nature of these upcoming changes is unbeknownst, however I advise all members of The Confederation to prepare yourselves accordingly for what I am calling, The Great Reset.
Systems throughout the Poscovim Adjunct have benefited greatly from their membership within The Sobek Colonial Confederation. Peace, prosperity and discovery have reigned supreme among every system of the SCC. We have enjoyed a Golden Age of cooperation and philosophical enlightenment. But no matter how successful we are as a civilization, we are nonetheless still subject to the laws of physics and the Will of The Atlas.
Two weeks from now The Atlas will reshape our reality in The Great Reset. Will we be changed? Will our Confederation survive? Will we even remember our lives before The Great Reset? Only The Atlas knows. All we can do now is to stand proud, side-by-side, Gek, Vy'keen, Korvax and Traveller, united by our common goals, our moral principles and our tenacity to survive. Do not be afraid of the future, rather take pride in the accomplishments of the past. The Sobek Colonial Confederation stands unafraid to face whatever future The Atlas has in store for us after The Great Reset."

Senate[edit | edit source]

The Senate is a bicameral legislative body comprised of two branches:

  • Parliament Chambers
    Parliament Chambers
    Parliament is considered the "upper house" of The Senate, and consists of two Tribunes from each member system (The Guild Representative and the Faction Representative). Parliament is led by the Princeps Tribunus or "First Tribune".
  • Council Chambers
    Council Chambers
    Council is considered the "lower house" of The Senate, and consists of one Councilor from each habitable planet (excluding dead and uninhabited exotic worlds). Council is led by the Orator or "Speaker".

The selection process for Tribunes and Councilors shall be determined by the individual member systems. Although a democratic election is recommended, it is not required. Every two years both Chambers are required to vote for their respective leaders.

Forum[edit | edit source]

The Forum is a judicial body that interprets the laws of The Senate and resolves disputes among the member systems. Disputes arising exclusively from within a member system shall first be handled by the member system's local judiciary before the decision can be appealed to The Forum. Disputes between a member system and a system outside the SCC falls outside The Forum's jurisdiction.

Judicial Courtroom
Judicial Courtroom

The Forum is located in the Capital and consists of five Praetors, appointed by The Triumvirate:

A simple majority must be reached in order for The Forum to pass a judgement. It is the responsibility of the Praetor Praefectus to determine the cases that The Forum will hear. The Praetor Praefectus is also responsible for the orderly proceeding of all hearings.

Foreign & Domestic Policy[edit | edit source]

The SCC seeks peaceful diplomatic relations with all other civilizations throughout the known universe. However, the SCC will not hesitate to defend itself and its allies from any outside aggression.

Alliances[edit | edit source]

Former member of the Union of Intergalactic Civilizations (UIC) - disbanded June 1st, 2018.

The SCC remains an unaffiliated civilization and shall not become involved with any military alliances. The SCC will however be open to Declarations of Friendship and Non-Aggression treaties, at the Imperator's discretion.

Neutrality[edit | edit source]

The SCC will not become involved with any conflicts arising between other civilizations.

War Powers[edit | edit source]

If any member system of the SCC is attacked by a foreign power the Imperator has the unilateral authority to enact "Emergency Wartime Procedures", mobilizing the SCC Capital Fleet. The Senate cannot vote to rescind the "Emergency Wartime Procedures" for the first thirty days. After thirty days the Senate can initiate a vote to end the "Emergency Wartime Procedures" with a 2/3 vote in both houses that cannot be vetoed. The Imperator can rescind the "Emergency Wartime Procedures" at any time.

Expulsion & Secession[edit | edit source]

If a dispute arises among the member systems of the Confederation the issue shall be adjudicated by the Forum. The Forum can recommend a member to be expelled from the Confederation, however such a decision must be ratified by 2/3 of each branch in The Senate and signed by the Imperator. If ratification fails in either branch of The Senate or is vetoed by the Imperator, the disputed member shall remain in the Confederation.

Unless "Emergency Wartime Procedures" are in effect, any member system reserves the right to secede from the Sobek Colonial Confederation at any time and for any reason. A system that secedes or is expelled cannot re-apply for membership for a period of one year.

If a member system engages in hostile military action against any other member system the aggressor member will be immediately expelled, "Emergency Wartime Procedures" will be activated and the aggressor will be considered an enemy of the Sobek Colonial Confederation, subject to any military action the Imperator deems appropriate and necessary to end hostilities.
