The Corporate Sector Authority (CSA) is a government in the Star Wars Combine. The faction was originally created circa Year 3 by Mystiel Raleigh, Kam Farlight, Zorran Black and Orion Silverhelm from the ashes of Infinite Dark.
The Corporate Sector Authority is composed of several nationalized corporations such as Paradox Resource Exploration, Primus Medical, Silverhelm Entertainment Media, Myorzo Weapons Systems, Magnaguard Manufacturing and the Universal Network Bank. The government is managed by a Direx Board whose members are high ranking business executives. The Direx Board is led by the Executive Officer (ExO) and other posts included President (Prex), Viceprex and Auditor-General. Currently, the Pypin system functions as the administrative center for the Corporate Sector as well as a major trading crossroads.
The current leader of the faction is Max Solusar (as of Year 9).
"In a bold experiment meant to free the Republic lawmakers and Corporate moneymakers from their differences, a free-enterprise fiefdom of space was carved out bordering the Aparo and Wyl sectors. This became the Corporate Sector, a section of space governed not by the Republic or the Empire that followed, but instead run by big business. At its start, the Corporate Sector encompassed only several hundred systems, carefully chosen by the Republic for their lack of native, sentient life. But as the profits began to swell, so did the territory. By the time of the Empire, the Corporate Sector ballooned to include nearly 30,000 stars. According to official documentation, none of these worlds contained any sentient life, but in truth, eleven species were discovered, though this fact was expunged from all records. The government of the Corporate Sector is the Corporate Sector Authority (CSA), a private corporation in its own right forged by the industrious Orion Silverhelm. The CSA was granted a charter by the Empire to control that portion of the galaxy. The CSA was afforded independence due to the huge amounts of profits that it funneled into the New Order's coffers. Within its borders, the CSA was hardly better a ruler than the Empire, though many sought refuge there from the Galactic Civil War."
