The Republic consists of a band of political alliances formed to create a stability and feeling of safety throughout the Galaxy. Initially formed as a chain of resistance against the Hutt threat, the Republic is predominantly a peaceful enterprise. However, as factions of the alliance started to break away and create friction, the real power of the Republic started to wane. This friction also caused many members of The Jedi Order to stop being protectors of the Republic and form small splinter groups. In turn, young and dedicated politicians, such as Padme Amidala, found their attempts at stability, democracy and peace scuppered by corruption and weakness within.
