The number of citizens on every factions planets are added together, note that this does not include player characters. Whichever faction has the largest number of citizens becomes the Galactic Government. Should another faction overtake the current government then they will take control.
Rights of the Galactic Government
The current galactic government has the control over the Galactic News Service. When someone submits a post to the GNS, the Galactic Government will have the right to approve or deny certain articles. This right does not apply to articles which have been hacked onto the GNS which cannot be blocked.
