THE NEW AMERICAN REPUBLIC

He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he
establishes a precedent which will reach to himself

OVERVIEW
Territory: 1,000ly by 5,000ly peninsula lying along the border between the KessRith Empire and the Mochov District,
between 60,000 and 65,000 LY from earth.
Worlds: 10,872 worlds
Population: ~2.8 Billion per world
78% Human/Naram, 18% KessRith, 4% Other
Army: 40,000 Legions (Mostly Heavy)
Navy: 2,000 Battlegroups
The New American Republic consists of roughly 10,000 worlds scattered across 8,000 star systems located along
the rimward border between the KessRith Empire and the Mochov District. It covers a dense area of mainly older stars
some 5,000 lightyears long and 1,000ly wide. Administratively, it is divided into 103 States, with each state being made
of between 10 and 100 provinces containing as few as one and as many as four dozen worlds. The Republic population is
majority human/naram, with a large KessRith minority and a smattering of other species.

THE GOVERNMENT
The governance of the Republic tends to sit lightly on its people, based on a combination of ancient American and
Greek ideals of republic. Individual worlds have the right to choose and organize their leadership in any fashion they
wish, from the local up to the planetary level. Most planets are governed by some form of representative democracy, but
oligarchies, plutocracies, monarchies, and KessRith inherited Clan-based arrangements are all present. Each world files
its defining governing documents and laws (usually one or more constitutions) with the Republic. So long as the
constitutions include absolute prohibitions against slavery in any form, freedom of passage, and certain other enumerated
individual liberties and prohibitions on government power, the Republic will likely accept whatever character the
planetary constitution shows. These constitutions are, by Republic law, subject to change by a 2/3 supermajority of the
planetary population, and any citizen may bring suit against their government for any violations of that constitution. So
long as the few absolute laws of the Republic are upheld (including a strict abolition of all slavery, including debtservitude, the provision of absolute equality before the law of all sentient beings, and ensuring freedom of movement and
relative freedom of trade) then the Republic is likely to care little how a given world chooses to govern itself.
The worlds in a given area are organized into states. Each State, like the worlds it rules, sets its own form of
governance within the limits set by the Republic at large. In the most typical version, the various worlds in a State send
one or more representatives to a State Congress, along with an executive elected by direct vote of the worlds within the
State. As with World governments, however, State governments do vary radically. The populace of a State retains the
same power to amend the State Constitution by general plebiscite as does the populace of a planet, and a given planet
within a state may under certain circumstances leave the state, either to join another nearby or to try to form its own state.
The Republican Legislature is a Senate where each State has voting power based on a complex formula based on
population, economic potential, and military contribution. Executive power is held by a president elected once every six
years by the at-large population of the Republic. The current president, the wildly popular KessRith NanDaquam, is
unique in being the first non-human elected to the presidency. Her popularity as a retired, highly successful Fleet Admiral
has served to empower a resurgent War Party that feels the Republic should provide more support to the Commonwealth
in its conflict with the Terran Overlord Government, despite a large contingent of the human population that holds its
racial memory of enslavement by the KessRith more closely than its concerns about the slavery and oppression of the
TOG. Oddly, the animosity directed towards the KessRith Empire for its past actions does not extend to the large
KessRith population of the Republic, likely because many KessRith heroes have been (rightly) lauded for the efforts and
sacrifices on behalf of the Republic, even as against the KessRith Empire.

THE POPULACE
The people of the Republic are, on average, free-wheeling, extroverted, and optimistic. When Alexander Trajans
rebellion started, they were too far from the core worlds of Humanity to receive much direct support from Trajan. The
rebellion was supported initially by Vauvasaur trade and armaments, and the Vauvasaur are still highly regarded in the
Republic, despite their relatively small numbers. Indeed, this national memory is so strong that Vauvasaur guests in the
republic will express surprise and some amusement at their inability to pay for their own drinks and the willingness of
almost every member of the Republic to tolerate the unending Vauvasaur curiosity with consistent good humor.
Weapons alone do not win wars, and the Vauvasaur, while not martially incompetent, are not a race of warriors.
The KessRith are. Some KessRith clans supported the rebellion in secret for their own ends, even in the earliest days,
and on other worlds the human population had effectively become parts of the KessRith clan structure, leading their clans
to support the rebellion. Others, despite the brutal conflict of the rebellion (or, knowing the KessRith, BECAUSE of it)
came to find their loyalty lay to the world, and those who had fought for it, rather than to the empire as a whole. Human
and KessRith brutality against the KessRith themselves during the rebellion ensured, along with human breeding rates,
that the KessRith are a minority in the modern Republic, but most of the resentment for the slavery of the past is
projected outward, as against the KessRith Empire, rather than against the KessRith population of the Republic. The
KessRith of the Republic are on the whole typical of their race, though moderated by centuries of close association with
their human counterparts.
A thousand years under KessRith dominance stamped out most genetic and social distinctions between the
Naram and Human population, and the modern Human populace is an almost undistinguishable mix of the two, speaking
a common tounge that mixes Naram, English, and Latin. The ebullient optimism, driven by their successful revolt, the
freedoms of their government that they feel are unique, and the wealth that has flowed into the Republic as a result of its
position as a trading cross-roads between three great powers also contributes to this. Naram extended family structures,
Human independence and self-focus, and KessRith clan allegiance and militarism have resulted in a population that
seems to outsiders almost schizophrenic. They are on average fiercely proud of their independence while at the same time
deeply invested in family, extended family, and government loyalties. They display a focus on the arts and science and
progress is coupled sometimes uncomfortably with a brutal martial spirit and energy. They are a study in contrasts, in
love with their own exceptionalism, and quietly confident that they are the shining city on the hill that should be the
model for the rest of the galaxy. To their minds, the KessRith Empire is cruel and overly militaristic, the TOG little
better, and less honest about it, and the Commonwealth, whilst laudable, is weighed down by disunity, self-seeking, and
corruption. They are the Hope of the Galaxy.

THE MILITARY
The Republican Military is a mix of the traditions of the KessRith and their past models of the United States.
As such, they tend to focusing on firepower and resilience over mobility. Despite this, there is a thread of the Naram
inheritance in their armed services, and a focus on more agile forces is starting to have some effect in the modern era.
The main fighting strength of the Republican Army consists of 40,000 Corps sized forces, roughly equivalent in
size to a TOG Strike Legion. Each Corps is fully grav-mechanized, with heavy grav tank/apcs of moderate speed and
heavy defense as the main battle tank. The primary role of these forces is to find and fix enemy forces for destruction by
artillery, air, or orbital support, in an attempt to minimize troop losses and maximize offensive power for a given volume
of spacelift capability as naval transports are far more expensive than the units they carry, best to get the absolute
maximum combat value out of a given transport. Training and proficiency in the Republican Army is consistently of the
highest quality, and peacetime is filled with regular live-fire and simulated exercises that can be continental in scope. The
heavy expenditures in the training budget do limit funds for acquisitions, so the Armys equipment, whilst capable, tends
to be somewhat older and often does not incorporate the newest breakthroughs.

The Republic Navy fields 2,000 Battlegroups. Each Battlegroup is organized into two to five squadrons, and is
roughly equivalent to a TOG Battleship Group in cost, role, and deployment, whilst consisting of roughly twice as many
hulls.
The Republic Navy uses twice as many hulls for the same job in part because it has to, and in part because it can.
Various pressures have forced the size of Republican ships down. Few states can duplicate the larger capital ship engines,
and a limitation in strategic resources further forces the use of smaller sublight and FTL engines whenever possible. The
same problem is encountered with the massive generators and coils needed to power spinal mount weapons. The voting
power formula respects offensive and defensive power, but pays no attention to cost such that State increases its voting
power by spending its money more efficiently. Finally, the KessRith influence has driven a focus on maximizing
defensive power. Two ships are twice as hard to kill as one, and a cheap battleship hull optimized to do a Cruisers job
may cost no more than the cruiser, while being far more resilient.
The same pressures that lead to smaller ships have also lead the Republic to lavishly equip its forces with fighters,
parasite escorts, and missiles to support its forces. Critics have noted, however, that support costs for a force so equipped
run higher than those of their opponents. A Republican Battlegroup may cost no more for its hulls than the TOG
Battlegroup that it outnumbers, but it will require more crew, more logistical support, and its smaller hulls will frequently
lack in long range firepower.
In addition to the Armys Corps and the Navys Battlegroups, each world and state in the Republic is responsible
for its local defense as it sees fit. As a result, local forces vary wildly in quality of equipment, though the overall martial
bent of the Republican populace ensures that the planetary militia tend to be relatively well trained, numerous, and high in
morale, even if equipped with nothing better than track-laying vehicles and chemically powered weapons for ground
forces and a mix of FTL Patrol Corvettes and Escorts for space.

Overview:
The Republics Enterprise class Fleet Carriers serve as the core of its most powerful offensive strike forces. As of 6841, the
oldest hulls of the class have been in service nearly a century. Extensively refits have kept the vessel in service throughout that time,
and though occasional noise is made about a replacement, the Lexington Shipyards have responded with design tweaks and upgrades
that have answered whatever concerns are raised about the ships. Even so, costs have grown with refit and redesign, and there is
political pressure to replace the Enterprise with something stripped down, able to provide the same level of fighter support at a more
reasonable cost. Service members and Lexington representatives have responded by stating that the Enterprise is nearly perfect, and
that any trimming would cost more than could be gained.
Capabilities:
This full up fleet carrier is the focus of much of the Republican Navys striking power. The full 5 wings of fighters, typical of
a battleship class carrier, are supported by massive small craft bays. Common to many current generation Republican warships, these
bays are usually filled with non-FTL capable patrol escorts, usually optimized for the strike or fleet defense role. These escorts,
while not so agile as the ships fighters, are much better suited to engaging incoming enemy missiles and small craft, and may use their
resilience to form the core of an offensive strike against high value targets. In other situations, the patrol escorts may serve as close
support for ground forces, or be replaced with LSTs to help bring a strike legion to the surface.
The huge cargo capacity of the Enterprise allows it to support itself, and its escorts, on extended patrol. At other times, the
cargo volume may be filled with the vehicles and weapons for the demi-legion that is its marine complement. When using its AntiGrav Drives, an Enterprise may come down into a target planets atmosphere, to directly disgorge fighter craft, grav-tanks, and gravdrop troops onto a high value target, all the while providing fire support.
The large spread of 50 Gun bays are optimized for the point defense role, though they do offer the ship extended range punch
equal to some heavy cruisers or second-rate battleships. This is coupled with the Class E Missile System that is near standard on
Republican ships. Though almost a side note compared to the firepower of its fighters and escorts, the Lassiter Class E Missile
System does provide additional punch in the last ditch defense role, either against threatening capital ships or to break up an
incoming fighter strike.
Deployment:
Most Enterprise class vessels spend their time on far stations and hot districts. Too valuable and too expensive to let sit idle,
their great cost and value also ensures that they are never seen without a vast host of escorts.

Overview:
The AhPkeu (A Death-God of old Naram Myth) is something of an anomaly in the modern Republican Navy, and the subject
of much debate. For forty years, the core of the Republican wall of battle has been the TasnaTak class Battleships. However, the
TasnaTak lacks the speed to keep up with a carrier task force or to rapidly respond to evolving in-system events and enemy
maneuvers. The TorRe class Battlecruisers, produced by the Bantal Corporation at Dancing-Blossoms, have the speed that the
TasnaTak lacks, but lose so much long range firepower that they can find themselves at a disadvantage against heavy enemy forces.
After a few years of design work, and allowing themselves the freedom of ignoring costs, the Bantal shipwrights asked, and
answered... why cant we have both.
It turned out one could have both. If one was willing to pay for it.
Capabilities:
The AnPeku does what it says on the label. A Fast Battleship, with drive performance matching a fast cruiser or standard
frigate, whilst carrying full up Battleship-Grade armor, shields, a full fighter wing, six squadrons of escorts, and nearly double the
broadside firepower of the famed Shiva class Battleships, the AnPeku is in the eyes of its designers and many fleet admirals the
perfect battleship. Relatively large marine complements can be turned into additional berthing to improve quality of life on long
deployments, and huge cargo bays allow for extended endurance.
Perfection has a cost, however. While only 20% more expensive than modern Battleships like the Ventatrix or Shiva (and
less expensive than the Iron Duke or Conflictor, not to mention the monstrous Illustris class vessels), it may still prove more than
conservative Fleet Procurement Officers are willing to pay. Further, the three massive Rolls Royce-Nimue Engines have shown some
instability at high speeds, and interference between the three sometimes requires stepping down output from the central engine, putting
the power distribution system of the vessel under some stress and resulting in occasional power loss when the vessels attempt to
redirect power from one subsystem to another.
Deployment:
Relatively AnPeku have entered service so far. Those that have are usually deployed as a part of a strike squadron capital
ship heavy squadrons where all vessels have drives to at least match the speed of a stock frigate. These squadrons are used in an
offensive role against targets too tough for typical raiders to handle, but where speed is still at a premium to get in, hit a single high
value target, and escape before slower defending KessRith or TOG squadrons can respond.

Overview:
The TasnaTak class Battleship is nearly ubiquitous in NAR service. Since the first hull was laid down over fifty years ago
at the SFS core shipyards on We Made It!, it was obvious that the shipwrights of Standard Fleet Systems were on to something special.
Surrounded by far larger, stronger opponents, the NAR needed a design capable of standing in battle against the largest of enemy
vessels, while requiring a relative minimum of support, maintenance, and strategic resources. Designed to project firepower sufficient
to threaten the largest of opposing vessels, while minimalizing the cost in maintenance, strategic resources, and fleet support, this
classically KessRith design has rapidly replaced almost all older battleships in service.
Capabilities:
The Solid as Stone is built around several core principals. First and foremost was cost. The NAR needed as many capital
ships as possible as quickly as possible, and one way to get there was to minimize platform costs. By using engines at the bottom of
the Battleship class, and eschewing the heavy and power-hungry spinal mount, sufficient power was retained for heavy beam
armament while minimizing hull mass and costs.
With a limited energy budget and a need for maximum firepower, efficiency was demanded next. Long-rod lasers of
moderate diameter were long known to give the most punch for the least power input, and had the advantage of reaching out to very
long ranges. The cavernous hull volumes left by the installation of the light MagnaStar 30,000 series engines left plenty of space for 8
vast weapons bays. Smaller diameter weapons provide moderate firepower out the fore and aft, but the Stone is definitely focused on
broadside fighting.
The vessel had to be capable of extended endurance, to minimize travel time to and from station. Massive cargo bays provide
fuel bunkerage, missile reloads, and other consumables. The oversized marine contingent can serve as prize crews, damage control
specialists, or their barracks can be converted to increased crew berthing, to improve comfort and long term habitability.
Next, the Stone had to be self-escorting to as great a degree as possible. Not only does she carry the largest number of
fighters possible for a classic Battleship hullform, her massive boat bays provide a secondary force of up to thirty-six patrol escorts.
The escorts can serve to chop up incoming fighter and missile swarms, to cover the vessels under-protected fore and aft, and also as a
separate strike force, in addition to the fighters. Those same escort can be replaced with landing ships, and the fighter launch bays
can, in an atmosphere, be used to launch grav tanks for a planetary assault directly supported by the ships gunfire.
Deployment:
TasnaTak class vessels are present in almost every squadron, and represent over half of the battleships in the NAR Navy.
From line of battle to deep patrol, from planetary assault to planetary defense, the Stones have excelled at any task the NAR might
set before them.

Overview:
The Bantal corporation had long wanted to break into the lucrative and prestigious Capital ship market. With Lexington
shipyards providing the bulk of the Republic Navys Fleet Carriers and Standard Fleet Systems having the only significant Battleship
contract locked down for decades, Bantal needed an opening.
They found it in the Battlecruiser. Lexingtons Atlanta class Escort Cruisers normally formed the backbone of Carrier Escort
squadrons. Though usually highly successful in that role, the cruiser-hulled escorts lacked the big gun firepower and reach to hold off
enemy capital ships if the carriers squadron was absent. Based on this, the Bantal corporation self-funded a design study for a
Battlecruiser, a class long extinct in the Republican Order of Battle.
Though the Naval Procurement Bureau was initially doubtful, as the TorRe design cost very nearly as much as a Battleship
while carrying only around 70% of the firepower, the pressure from the Carrier Admirals eventually overcame their resistance, and
for the last twenty years, the Tor Re has been supplementing Carrier Strike forces throughout the Republican order of battle.
Capabilities:
As a Republican Battlecruiser, the Tor Re has all the qualities one would expect maximum defenses, a huge missile battery,
and drives to match a typical frigate or upengined cruiser. A part of the classic battleships broadside firepower is lost, with the
installation of 400 5cm diameter Rheinmetall E-Line Lasers in place of the usual 15cm C-Line bays.
The existing MagnaStar 30,000 series engines were reused for the Tor Re, though it was necessary to uprate the drives. This
increased both fuel consumption and maintenance requirements, as the 38K series engines run very hot, compared to their 35K series
forbearers, but the vast cargo bays that have become standard on Republican vessels provide more than enough space for both fuel
bunkerage and spare parts.
Deployment:
Though initially marketed to the Naval Procurement Bureau as a carrier escort, the Tor Re has begun finding a place as a
heavy raider a division of these battlecruisers can overwhelm almost any system defense picket, and can run rampant through even
heavily defended systems due to their ability to outmaneuver defending battleships. Despite moderate success when forced into the
wall of battle, fleet command has made every effort to ensure that these vessels are not forced to deploy into a role for which they
were not designed.

Background:
Despite nearly 60 years in service, the Lexington Shipyards Hellhammer class fighter remains the mainstay of almost all
carrier fighter operations in the Republican Navy. Originally intended as an anti-ship strike bomber and as a ground support gunship,
during its time in service its role has expanded to include interception and even reconnaissance roles.
The Hammer is practically unique among fighters in service in any galactic military. First, its pure size. At very nearly 300
Tons in standard configuration, with an unheard of three man crew supporting a pair of turrets, the Hellhammer is massive. Secondly,
its flexibility. By the use of universal connections and fast release modular components, the Hellhammer is quickly reconfigured from
a heavy assault boat to more agile space superiority and interceptor role or a blindingly fast recon variant. Finally, its cost is also
unique. At nearly six million dollars per fighter, it is half again as expensive as the heavy fighters of most navies.
In its standard configuration, the Hammer boasts 8 heavy lasers, each in its own turret. A full burn from both turrets can
easily destroy any other fighter in space, and they present a lethal threat to any ground forces in a strafing attack. Further, the
placement of those armament in turrets serves to offset the Hammers poor handling, as there is no safe aspect to attack. Maximum
armor and heavy shielding complement the package, as do a sextet of missiles sufficient to threaten, or kill, a fighter in a single
strike. The modular nature of the craft expands its possible roles, allowing the CAG to deploy his entire fighter strength in whatever
role is needed at the moment and greatly complicating the task of their opponents.
Deployment:
The Hellhammers resilience, flexibility, and power has made it the primary (and nearly exclusive) carrier-borne fighter in the
Republican Navy. Though its cost is high, it is trivial compared to the cost of the carriers that field them. For similar reasons, it
dominates the air groups assigned in support of ground forces.
This same cost has prevented the Hellhammer from seeing much defensive service. For roles where numbers and breadth of
deployment matter more than maximizing combat power in every fighter bay, the Hellhammer is singularly unsuitable.
