The Confederation was a political power that existed outside of the Mutter's Spiral.
It erected toll ports throughout the galaxies, using the money to put up barriers against dangerous hyper-bypasses. Countless species used the Confederation's tolls, including the Solterns, the Giboks, the Wormese, the Navarinos, and the Tollmaster's people. Based on the paintwork of toll port G715, the Confederation was at least two thousand years old. (PROSE: Delta and the Bannermen)
