The Neutral Traverse is a loosely governed area of space with no proper military and is defended by a civilian militia. Ever since the days of the Grand Alliance and its corrupt practices, the area that would be later known as the Traverse has attracted rich, elite fortune seekers with little economic regulation encouraging rather shady business practices.

In addition to white collar criminals, many of the Assembly races' militaries have been known to build unofficial and completely undocumented black sites that allow immoral interrogation, inhumane experimentation, and WMD testing.
