The best mega-corporations, overseen by imperial interests, span worlds, subsectors, even entire sectors, providing all citizens with the needs highly advanced peoples. They are authorized their own law enforcement activities, making sure that the interests of their customers are not hindered by theft or fraud.

"In all the many homeworlds peace and justice is enforce by the various peoples themselves through their own representatives. In each the law is their friend, guaranteeing the orderly life demanded by any civilization.
