The Ave of Unity, often shortened to The Ave, is the federal dominion of known space colonized by the Auraxian species, and includes the Ark Worlds of the Third Exodus and the myriad colonies, planets, and outposts under Avan civilian, colonial, and military rule.
Although the Ave of Unity was established as an interstellar confederation in 4275 P2X / 0 CE, its government has changed in name and function many times throughout the last millennia. As of 3147, the Ave of Unity is divided into multiple factions of Worlds: some loose confederations, some isolated Worlds, and other powerful, rather centralized sovereign states. The original, millennia-old loose Federal Government remains on Casara, the legal capital of the Ave of Unity.
The most powerful individual sovereignty within The Ave, however, is the Imperial Federation of Auraxis. IFA, centered around the ancient homeworld Aurax, is the center of the economic and military power of the Ave of Unity. Although The Ave has lasted thousands of years, most Avan subjects consider themselves citizens of their individual World instead of citizens of the Ave of Unity.
