    What is your favourite human faction in SciFi? For me it is Systems Alliance from Mass Effect video games because they're quite realistic faction in terms of politics and economics, etc... and seem like a society which we could become some day if FTL travel is proven to be possible and feasible.

    Gallente Federation from EVE Online.

    Champions of liberty and fierce guardians of the human spirit, the Gallente Federation is the only true democracy in New Eden. Its principles are brotherhood, fraternity, and equal rights to all men. Some of the most progressive leaders, scientists, and businessmen of the era have emerged from its diverse peoples. Pioneers of artificial intelligence, the Federation once relied almost entirely on drone fleets to defend its beliefs and borders. But the limitations of this technology and the lack of a human element—both in terms of a military strategy, and as a means of spreading influence— eventually reached a critical point. Today, Gallente starships are manned by some of the bravest men and women of New Eden.

    The Gallente. Self-righteous, meddling, pompous and tiresome, or virile liberalists and defenders of the free world. Love them or hate them, you simply can't ignore them. Everybody has an opinion on the Gallente Federation, it all depends from which side of the table you view them. For many, it is the Promised Land, where any dream can become a reality. The Gallente remain strong believers in free will and human rights, despite numerous setbacks in their long history.

    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    The Federation under Mentas Blaque (lets face it, Roden's rule is basically pointless) is definitely more in the self-righteous, meddling, pompous and tiresome category. A bloated bureaucracy with dishonest goals that isn't above silencing dissent.

    I prefer the Angel Cartel in the EVE universe. Archetypal space pirates. Well trained, well equipped, well led and well informed. They have their fingers in all of the pies and there's no ambiguity about their goals. They may be the bad guys, but at least you know where you stand with them. Much better!
