The Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, also known as the Federal Galactic Republic, but most commonly the Galactic Alliance, was the galactic government directly following the New Republic. Incorporating most of the known galaxy, the Galactic Alliance was the first government to achieve this since the Galactic Empire. Between 40 and 41 ABY, the term New Order was applied to the Alliance for a short period of time. The rest of the time it was referred to as the Old Order. It replaced the New Republic after the first war and a major player in the Second Multiverse War.
