GovReg Entry: ?

The Hephaestus System is a former GA colony world that seceded during the Hemmoian Civil War. The Colony had a small mining operation, few military outposts, and weapons manufacturing plant before the secession, but the system has formed its own government based on "more democratic means" than the GA, this has caused problems between the states.

The People's voice is listened by the Parliament consisting of 40 Councilors that relay big problems to the Executive Council to decide, the parliament decides smaller Citizen-size tasks in the hierarchy.


The Hephaestus Defense Forces have about 400-490 space vessels built mainly in the DHR and in the orbit of the Third planet of their home system. The Hephaestus Defense forces deploy Ground security forces as well.

Diplomatic Relations

The Hephaestus republic has fought two wars of independence against the GA (Hephaestus War of Independence, Second Hephaestus Indepence War), finally winning its independence and joining the DHR for financial aid; the Republic is still considered as an "Independent member state" by the GA government and politicians, although the Hephaestans have stated that they want nothing to do with the GA.

Hephaestus is considered a neutral state, but it has expressed will to help the IGA and the GA to work out their political crisis. The GA held an exercise with the Hephaestus forces in 3363, trying to work out their cool relations.
