The Symbol of the New Republic - By: swmand4

The New Republic (NR), also referred to as simply the Republic, was the name of the galactic, democratic government formed form the ashes of galactic conflict during the waning years of the Galactic Civil War, absorbing their political and military leadership of the former Alliance to Restore the Republic after the Battle of Endor success. Like its predecessor, it was often simply referred to as the Republic; less often, it was referred to as a New Galactic Republic or the Second Galactic Republic. The New Republic followed in the footsteps of the Galactic Republic which was commonly referred to as the "Old Republic" during the Age of the Empire by restoring the Galactic Senate and fighting the shattered forces of the Galactic Empire. Unlike its predecessor, the New Republic's capital wasn't based on Coruscant. After a brief stint on Chandrila, the seat of government shifted among a variety of member worlds on a rotating basis, chosen through the democratic election. Following the end of the war with the signing of the Galactic Concordance, the Republic did hastily pass the Military Disarmament Act seeking to prevent a repeat of galactic history; and instead focused on strengthening the forces of local planetary governments and reconstruction efforts to worlds ravaged by war. A fraction in size when it is compared to the former Galactic Republic and Galactic Empire, the newly formed New Republic remained on friendly terms with a majority of galactic systems owing to the egalitarian processes that it embodied into the political message.

The New Republic was founded on the same principles that the old Republic was thousands of generations before so to have a representative parliamentary body govern the galaxy in a fair and equal manner, and it was designed to eradicate the shortcomings that brought about the Galactic Republic's downfall. It was the hope of some such as Luke Skywalker that a New Jedi Order could be formed so as to protect the Republic, just as the Old Republic was once guarded by the Old Jedi Order, but this vision was not meant to be achieved in Skywalker's lifetime. Briefly inhabiting a wing of the New Republic politics, an Imperial Remnant group called the First Order would eventually secede from the greater body once tensions reached a breaking point. While many did applaud the motion, others began to realize that without an Republic oversight, the First Order would return to the draconian ways of its predecessor. With a desire for peace, many Senators (some even receiving large sums of credits from First Order beneficiaries) dismissed notions that the First Order posed a threat to the Republic, believing the reports of its strength had been exaggerated by 'warmonger' Senator Organa and a Resistance group. The New Republic was thus utterly unprepared when a Cold War turned hot, and this First Order had finally revealed its true intentions with a lethal attack that had destroyed the capital of the Hosnian System. Without any of their leaders and with no appreciable defenses against a burgeoning foe, the Republic stood on the brink of disaster.

Populists

The Populists were one of two powerful, yet unofficial, political factions that had formed in the Galactic Senate of the New Republic over the two decades following the founding of the regime. They believed that individual member planets should retain their full sovereignty, while the opposing political faction, the Centrists, favored a stronger galactic government and a larger military.

New Republic Starfleet

The New Republic Starfleet, also known as the New Republic Defense Fleet, the New Republic Navy, or simply the New Republic fleet was the military force of the New Republic government formed from the Rebel Alliance Fleet in the aftermath of the Battle of Endor. It was first led by Grand Admiral Gial Ackbar. Thirty years after the Battle of Endor, the fleet was based in the Hosnian system when the system wastargeted and destroyed by the First Order's Starkiller Base. It is unknown how much of the fleet was lost in the attack.
