Tech Profile: Triumvirate Sarcophagi
​Believing that the minds of its citizens are worth preserving even after the death of the body, the Free Triumvirate relies heavily on imprinting technology. Imprinters are available in all Triumvirate hospitals, to transfer the minds of terminal patients to a new host body. Those in professions which are likely to result in death, particularly soldiers, have imprinters mounted into their helmets. If these helmet imprinters detect that the wearer is near death, the helmet projects electrodes which pierce through the wearer's skull and instantaneously imprint the brain. This form of imprinting near-instantaneously destroys the brain, and the imprinting data is sent via a mounted ansible to a Triumvirate databank.
Naturally, this hazardous environment imprinting has its flaws. Those whose minds are being imprinted are often in a state of extreme pain or shock at the moment of imprinting, and the process itself is far from painless. As a result, the imprinted mind will be in a stat

Aeyrius Prime
Aeyrius Prime is the only world in the Aeyrius system with a permanently residing population, and is infamous for its long and violent history. Aeyrius is notable among the Dominion Systems of Avelov for being both one of the oldest and also one of the most troublesome. The population of Aeyrius has proven exceptionally difficult to subdue and although Avelovan rule has seldom been seriously threatened, the many rebellions and terrorist campaigns have proven to be a serious drain on resources.
The Aeyrius system was first discovered by the Galactic Republic, which took little interest in it. Aeyrius Prime was the only planet considered suitable for terraforming and a small colony was subsequently created. Aeyrius was considered a backwater for most of the Republic era. Even after terraforming, the environment of Aeyrius would remain harsh. The small colony would grow only very gradually and much of the planet was still uninhabited by humans

Culture Profile: The Sovereign Thalassocracies
Astrography
The ships of the Sovereign Thalassocracies are scattered across the entirety of the Crazed Core, with only a few ambitious captains possessing holdings outside the Core in the form of appropriated orbitals and starports. The Thalassocracies are completely spacebound, with no permanent terrestrial possessions or colonies.
Natural Physical Appearance
The main denizens of the Sovereign Thalassocracies are technically baseline humans of the Galactic ethnicity, but millennia of inbreeding among genetically homogeneous vessel populations, a cultural tendency to use intoxicants and combat stimulants, and a lack of advanced medical technology has led to grotesque birth defects and mutations to become commonplace. Baldness, jagged teeth, pallid skin, webbed toes, bulging unblinking eyes, and malformed limbs are the most common of these defects.
Appearance Traditions
Given the anarchic and decentralized nature of the Thalassocracies, there is little in the way of

Citizen Castes of the Free Triumvirate
The Free Triumvirate's citizens are all composed of clones of one of the Twelve Founders, twelve baseline humans which chose to leave the Second Empire, which they believed was corrupt and doomed to eventual self-destruction. Key to the Triumvirate's beliefs about the Second Empire's failings is the belief that a genetically diverse population is one that will inherently succumb to infighting, and thus a genetically-controlled, caste-based system will be more stable. Proved right, in their minds, by the War of the Cog Lords and the chaos that engulfed the Milky Way in its aftermath, the Free Triumvirate persists with its clone society.
The citizens of the Free Triumvirate, being clones of specific individuals, have a tendency towards particular personality traits. This is reinforced by a lifetime of rigid education which promotes the preexisting personality template. All of this effort is necessary to create predictable castes which are well suited to tasks in particular fields. Aberra

History Profile: The Alliance-Imperial War
During the Unification Wars, the Citizens’ Alliance was building its own interstellar empire. Although the Alliance rejected most forms of high technology as a source of civilizational weakness and a possible vector for destruction at the hands of artificial intelligence, they were more advanced than their neighbors, which they easily conquered or convinced to join the Alliance. The Alliance grew quickly, numbering around ten thousand star systems, when they encountered the Third Empire.
The Alliance had never encountered an interstellar polity the size of the Third Empire before, and they were outnumbered and outgunned by an order of magnitude. While the Alliance could call upon ten thousand systems, by the time of their encounter, the Empire numbered in the hundreds of thousands of systems. The Empire also had the technological advantage, particularly in space; the Alliance still depended on missiles and mass drivers, while the Empire possessed heavily shielded vessels and plas

Protectors of the Galaxy: The Space Cadets
​The Space Cadets are the military wing of the Protectorate of Mankind, given the purpose of enacting the Protectorate's edicts across the galaxy. Once the proud army of a growing galactic power, the Space Cadets are a shadow of their former selves, forced to take in outlaws and criminals for recruits. Space Cadets are deployed throughout the galaxy, often placed in impossible situations which they have to resolve with wit, guile, and firepower.
The Space Cadets were formed from the disparate militaries of the early Protectorate of Mankind, a political union of disparate planetary and system governments that arose from the ashes of the War of the Cog Lords. The Space Cadets' purpose was simple: to expand the Protectorate and defend it from hostile forces. Armed with relatively advanced weapons for the time - transatomic weapons, disintegrators, death rays - the Protectorate easily defeated their neighbors, most of whom had only recently achieved spaceflight. Space Cadets were tra

[EEUSG] Post-Shining Path Peru
The border between Bolivia and Peru had changed hands. Bolivian soldiers have occupied parts of what used to be the People's Republic of Peru; I have been frisked by soldiers at once. With my definitely fake Paraguayan passport, I was frisked by a Bolivian colonel, who spoke several indigenous languages fluently, and asked me about why I am going to Peru. I said it was for a book, and suddenly, the colonel invited me to his office near the border crossing.
"Actually, I am from a different dimension," I said to the colonel in Guarani. My Guarani has been rusting, and though I speak Spanish like any person from my place in most timelines, the colonel doubted if I was an escapee from a mental asylum. But then he relented.
"Oh, come on, if I can believe in spirits, then I can believe in time-travelers, am I right?" the colonel named Isaac Marquez then chewed what appeared to be coca leaves.
"Sort of. More of a parallel dimension," I replied. "I guess the situation in Peru has not improved?

A quick Star Wars idea: Palpatine (and Plagueis, too) gets killed off before he can take power, so the Sith plan to infiltrate the Republic's government and create the FIRST. GALACTIC. EMPIRE. never comes to fruition. A key premise of this idea is that removing the Sith would not have prevented a major conflict from breaking out between the Core and the Rim. The worlds that would join the Separatists would still have a lot of cause to break away from the Republic; Palpatine or no, the Republic was still corrupt, and both the corporations and the Rim had many reasons to break away. The war is an "easy" Separatist victory; without Palpatine to mastermind the creation of the GAR, and without him tipping the scales in favor of the Republic by leading both sides, the Republic gets overwhelmed by trillions of battle droids.

I set up a Discord channel for discussing Space Cadet. 

discord.gg/tF5zmQA
Prompt: a multi-faceted cold war, where five blocs abide by ideologies based on the five colors in Magic: The Gathering.
I've noticed an influx of people interested in writing EEUSG articles, or writing them and posting them. Send me a PM with your proposal/entry first. 
A TV Tropes page also exists for An Examination of Extra-Universal Systems of Government.

tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php…
Do you like Space Cadet? Do you have a TV Tropes account? Space Cadet has a TV Tropes page and it can use your contribution! 

tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php…

(As a rule, I don't edit this page because I want tropes to show up through my work instead of using TV Tropes to Word of God tropes in)

Have you considered making a map for Michel Houellebecq's 2015 novel, Submission?

It takes place in 2022 France and acts as a kind of subverted trope for the "Eurabia" meme.  It portrays a near-future presidential election where, to keep out the "far right", the French ruling class ultimately sides with a Mohammedan candidate who subsequently implements Islamic law. The subverted part of the trope is that rather than the usual portrayal of Muslims as the smelly, bearded Goths of far right imagination who defiled and plundered Rome, they are instead portrayed more like the conquering Macedons of Ancient Athens. The new president seeks not to humiliate France but to use the martial values of Islam to restore it to its former civic glory and create a new Roman Empire through the incorporation of North Africa into the EU for starters!

I've never considered it because I haven't heard of this book. I might if we can take the Macedon parallelism to the hilt, and demarcate parallels for other areas.

Indeed. Other parallels would include the Manchus/Mongols in China or the Mughals in India.

BTW, for the neoliberal dystopia, I have found another article that may help with ideas.

Hey, RvBOMally. Do you ever think you're going to get to your review of The Last Jedi? Better yet, do you think you'll ever do an alternate map/scenario for it?

Probably not. I thought it was so convoluted and bad that rewriting it would involve writing another movie entirely.

Personally I think of the film as a mixed bag of sorts, though granted much of the plot is pretty contrived to me (especially considering that somehow the Resistance like down to very small numbers at the beginning of the film).

Can I contribute to EEUSG? I am thinking of a Peru that was recently liberated from the Shining Path, to be replaced by a Cuban-backed regime and with Ecuador and Bolivia that is nibbling away parts of Peru, the former to exact revenge in its defeat in the 1940s, and Bolivia as a way to solve its coastline problem. It would be a pan-Latin American invasion of Peru.
