A Government refers to the legislators, administrators, and arbitrators in the administrative bureaucracy who control a state at a given time (such as the United Federation of Planets, Klingon Empire, and Romulan Star Empire), and to the system of government by which they are organized (Referred : More to govern than control). Government is the means by which state policy is enforced, as well as the mechanism for determining the policy of the state. A form of government, or form of state governance, refers to the set of political institutions by which a government of a state is organized.

States are served by a continuous succession of different governments. Each successive government is composed of a body of individuals who control and exercise control over political decision-making. Their function is to make and enforce laws and arbitrate conflicts. In some societies, this group is often a self-perpetuating or hereditary class. In other societies, such as democracies, the political roles remain, but there is frequent turnover of the people actually filling the positions.

Forms of Goverment

The Khitomer Accords

The Khitomer Accords were signed in 2293 between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire. During the brief outbreak of war between the Empire and the Federation between 2372 and 2373, the Empire (under the leadership of Chancellor Gowron) withdrew from the Accords, though they were soon reinstated due to conflict with The Dominion. (ST movie & novelization: The Undiscovered Country; DS9 episode & novelization: The Way of the Warrior; DS9 episode: "By Inferno's Light")

During the Borg Invasion of 2381, and the subsequent formation of the Typhon Pact, Federation President Nanietta Bacco invited neighboring friendly states in an expansion of the Accords. As of 2382, the Cardassian Union and the Ferengi Alliance became the newest members of the Khitomer Accords. (ST - Destiny novel: Mere Mortals; ST novel: A Singular Destiny; ST - Typhon Pact novel: The Struggle Within)

Cardassian Union

The Cardassian Union was formed in 1591 on the planet Cardassia Prime, with Urrent Gar becoming the first leader. Over the centuries, the Union grew in size, encompassing several hundred star systems; eventually the Union came into contact with the United Federation of Planets. Minor skirmishes led to war on a couple of occasions, most especially so in the 2350s, and the 2370s - in which the Union allied with the Dominion. (Last Unicorn RPG module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook; TNG episode: "The Wounded"; DS9 episode: "In Purgatory's Shadow")

Toward the end of the war with the Federation, Dominion troops leveled many Cardassian cities, including Lakarian City. (DS9 episode & novelization: What You Leave Behind)

As of 2383, the Castellan was Rakena Garan. (ST - Destiny novel: Mere Mortals; TNG novel: Losing the Peace; ST - Typhon Pact novel: Plagues of Night)

Ferengi Alliance

The Ferengi Alliance was formed after DaiMon Greko purchased a warp drive from the Breen. (ST short story: "A Dry Day on Ferenginar")

Much of the Alliance's economy is run from the planet Ferenginar.

As of 2383, the Grand Nagus was Rom. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Plagues of Night)

Klingon Empire

The Klingon Empire was founded toward the end of the 9th century by Kahless the Unforgettable on the planet Qo'noS.

As of 2383, the Chancellor was Martok, and the Emperor was Kahless, son of None. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Plagues of Night)

United Federation of Planets

The United Federation of Planets was founded in 2161 by Alpha Centauri, the Andorian Empire, the Confederacy of Vulcan, United Earth, and the United Planets of Tellar.

Much of the Federation was devastated during the Borg Invasion of 2381, resulting in the deaths of billions, and the destruction of 40% of Starfleet forces. (ST - Destiny novels: Gods of Night, Mere Mortals, Lost Souls)

As of 2383, the President was Nanietta Bacco. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Plagues of Night)

The Typhon Pact

The Typhon Pact was founded in 2381 by the Breen Confederacy, the Gorn Hegemony, the Holy Order of the Kinshaya, the Romulan Star Empire, the Tholian Assembly, and the Tzenkethi Coalition.

Gorn Hegemony

Holy Order of the Kinsyaha

Romulan Star Empire

The Romulan Star Empire was founded by an exiled group of Vulcans in the 3rd century on the planet Romulus.

As of 2383, the Praetor was Gell Kamemor. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Raise the Dawn)

Tholian Assembly

Tzenkethi Coalition

Alpha Quadrant

Andorian Empire

Originally, the Andorian Empire was founded in 19th century on the moon Andor. Until 2155, it is known that the Empire held tense relations with the Confederacy of Vulcan. In an unprecedented move, the Empire helped to create the Coalition of Planets, and soon after became one of the founding members of the United Federation of Planets in 2161. (ENT episodes: "The Andorian Incident", "Shadows of P'Jem", "Kir'Shara", "These Are the Voyages...")

In 2382, Andor seceded from the Federation, due in part to the ongoing reproductive crisis, and so the Andorian Empire was presumably recreated. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Paths of Disharmony)

Tkon Empire

The Tkon Empire was an ancient Empire that spanned several systems. Internal politics, as well as all other forms of government, were handled in the Empire's capital city of Ozari-thul. (TNG - The Q Continuum novel: Q-Zone)

The Empire was destroyed by a supernova approximately 100,000 years prior to 2364. It was later revealed that the ancient being known as 0 caused the Tkon's star to go supernova. (TNG episode: "The Last Outpost"; TNG - The Q Continuum novel: Q-Zone)

Borg Collective

The Borg Collective was created in 4527 BCE in the Delta Quadrant of the Milky Way galaxy, on the planet Arehaz, by the Caeliar Sedín, and Starfleet Officers Lieutenants Karl Graylock and Kiona Thayer. After assimilating the sentient population of the planet, the Borg apparently spread system-wide, and later sector-wide, before assimilating whole cultures in their millennia-long search for the Omega molecule - the only known source of Caeliar power. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls)

The Collective was destroyed in April of 2381 by Captains Ezri Dax, Erika Hernandez, Jean-Luc Picard, and William T. Riker of the Federation Starfleet and the Quorum. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls)
