The Galactic Federation of Free Alliances is a fictional government from the Star Wars novel series, more commonly called the Galactic Alliance for short. Extrinsically, "GFFA" (the acronym for the Galactic Alliance) stands for Galaxy Far, Far Away, and refers to the Star Wars galaxy as a whole. The name was coined by its first chief of state, Cal Omas, during the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion following the New Republic's decisive victory at the Battle of Ebaq.

History

Governmental changes between the New Republic and the Galactic Alliance were relatively minor, and are generally characterized by an increase in executive power and authority over the legislature.

It is the successor state to the New Republic. During the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion of the Star Wars galaxy, political infighting and weak leadership led the New Republic to a great number of defeats in the war and that government would not long survive the Fall of Coruscant. Some time after the Yuuzhan Vong capture of Coruscant, it completely reorganized into the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, or the Galactic Alliance for short, following its alliance with the Imperial Remnant and also, to an extent, with the Chiss, an insular civilisation from the Unknown Regions on the edge of the galaxy. They retook Coruscant from Yuuzhan Vong forces at the end of the war.

With Coruscant devasted and 'Vong-formed' beyond recognition, the government of the Galactic Alliance planned to relocate to Denon, a world in the Core that had escaped bombardment and occupation by the Yuuzhan Vong. The Alliance has undertaken reconstruction efforts on Coruscant, however the planet's future is still in question.

The Galactic Alliance was led by Chief of State Cal Omas and his High Council, comprised of Jedi, Senators and members of the Alliance's military and governmental leadership. Its tactics often made use of hit-and-run strikes popularized by the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War.

Alternate meaning

The term Galactic Alliance is also used as a shorthand to describe the coalition of every major power in the Star Wars galaxy, including the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, the Imperial Remnant, the Chiss Ascendancy, and others, united against the Yuuzhan Vong.
