The Corporate Sector is part of the Jumpweb of the New Universe. It is politically independent, with it's inhabited planets, moons, and solar systems granted by the Golems and the Independent Horsehead Empire in the year 3190 N.E. (45 years before te present time) to the Interplanetary Merchant League (see also Interplanetary Merchant League in the New Universe) in order to help the local populations economically. The agreement will be up for renewal in 3450 N.E. or the sector will revert to it's original owners. The Golems are entitled to 25 percent of the sector's industrial output and the Independent Horsehead Empire another 25 percent. The Corporate Sector is governed by a Corporate Sector Governing Council appointed by League corporations and aided by Horsehead and Golem advisors. The Interplanetary Merchant League has hired mercenaries, particularly from the military ranks of the Independent Horsehead Empire, select Golem robots, and even Arvi space nomads to help police the Corporate Sector.
