Traveller™Federation Of Arden
Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
As a small and relatively weak government, the Federation has chosen neutrality as its course toward self-preservation. This neutrality is of a passive nature; its systems have been declared conditionally open; any belligerent may enter any of the systems for replenishment and refuelling.
Arden's own defence fleet stands ready to defend the system and segregate ships of the belligerents into designated areas of the systems. Arden 's neutrality has made the Federation a clandestine meeting place for agents of all sides - for intelligence gathering and negotiation.
The Federation is controlled by the Arden Society, a small group of dedicated individuals who become members through contributions of finance or labour. The government is extremely repressive.
