Free Trade Union
|Free Trade Union|
The Free Trade Union is an employee-owned conglomerate of tens of thousands of various traders and merchants from all over the galaxy, colloquially known as the 'fifth megacorp'. They control a sizable fleet of vessels of various sizes which are given autonomy from the central command to engage in trading. They also host a fleet of combat vessels which respond directly to the central command for defending traders when necessary.
They are in control of many large scale trade stations across the known galaxy, even in non-human space. Generally, they are multi-purpose stations but they always keep areas filled with duty-free shops. Almost anything is sold there and products that are forbidden or have insanely high taxes in other places are generally sold in the duty-free shops at very cheap and low prices.
