Albion was originally founded by a group of businessmen decended from the old United Kingdom sector of Earth. They left Providence
a Phase Drive Ship and set out to get as far away from the Corporation as posible, in a bizzare twist of Serendipity the phase
drive failed cannoning the colonists into real space only 304LY from Providence, here they found three teracompatible worlds,
and the stage was set for a new power to emerge. Unfortunately, although the system was teeming with life and rich in natural
reasources the fledgling system required Providence support, it took twenty years for the system to pay off its debt to Providence
by which time its founding fathers were too old to take an active role in politics, however on the twentieth anniversary of
the systems birth, it succeeded from the Corporation's Control. Fearfull of the retaliation of the only other interstellar
power the System built up a powerful navy, large enough to give even the mighty Providence Fleet pause. Two years later the
British Confederacy was born.
