In the fictional Star Wars universe, the Confederacy of Independent Systems is an organization that existed in the latter years of the Republic. The organization was made up of organizations and Star Systems that wanted to leave the Republic, numbering "thousands" and with at least "ten thousand ready to join". Several corporations such as the Trade Federation, Techno Union, Commerce Guild, Corporate Alliance, and Intergalactic Banking Clan, among others, also joined. The organization's main goal was to split from the Republic and form their own republic, saying the Republic had become too corrupt. The members of this organization are called Separatists.

The tension between the Republic and the Separatists eventually lead to the Clone Wars. After the Battle of Geonosis, the Separatists seized Rhen Var in the first Battle of Rhen Var, but that planet was later retaken by the Republic. The events depicted in the video game, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, turns the tide of the Clone Wars. Other major engagements include Jabiim, Muunilinst, Duro and other worlds.

The political leaders of the Confederacy are Count Dooku, former Jedi Master and from behind the scenes, Darth Sidious, Dooku's Sith Master and alter ego of Chancellor Palpatine of the Republic who later went on to become the Emperor of the Galactic Empire. The military leaders of the Confederacy are the mysterious General Grievous, a Kaleesh cyborg droid and the Chiss Dark Jedi General Sev'rance Tann.

After Count Dooku's death, General Grievous becomes the sole political and military leader of the Confederacy, but after his own death, the Separatist Council briefly assumes leadership. The Confederacy was dissolved with the death of Count Dooku at the Battle of Coruscant, the death of General Grievous at the Battle of Utapau, and the assassination of the Separatist Council at Mustafar, but it was the second step (the first step was the Trade Federation invasion/occupation of Naboo) in the process of creating the Galactic Empire and its legacy lives on in the form of the Geonosians' Death Star project which became the Empire's feared superweapon.

  • Quarren Isolation League - The Quarren Isolation League are an organization based on the planet Mon Calamari and allied with the Confederacy of Independent Systems. They are lead by a Quarren called Senator Tikkes.

The League was founded to overthrow pro-Republic senator Tundra Dowmeai and rid Mon Calamari of all Republic presence. They were supplied with Manta droid subfighters and other aquatic weapons by the Trade Federation and Techno Union and fought both Mon Calamarians and Quarren indiscriminately in their attempted overthrow of the government.

Their struggle came to a head at the Battle of Mon Calamari.

  • Neimoidian Warriors - The Nemoidian warriors were created to serve as sentient guards for important officials, when it was too risky to use droids. The warrior recruits are pulled from the dregs of Nemoidian society, and promised pardon for their crimes for their service. Some were taken a step further, as seen in the warrior brunts. These hulking giants were genetically modified, and are so dangerous they are only activated in extreme situations. The Nemoidian warriors were present on Mustafar, and were slaughtered by Darth Vader upon his arrival.

"Our friends from the Trade Federation have pledged their support and when their battle droids are combined with yours will shall have an army greater than any in the galaxy. The Jedi will be overwhelmed. The Republic will agree to any demands we make."
