Player Minor Faction

A Player Minor Faction is a way for established Player Groups to represent themselves in-game, pushing the agenda of their groups throughout the galaxy.[1]

Once you have submitted a player minor faction and have it approved by Frontier, your player minor faction will show up in one of the three selected systems of your choosing. Your minor faction’s description will show up in a future update of Elite Dangerous.[1]

You will have to manage your minor faction's economy, influence, and other galactic threats! Take part in various actions: combat, performing missions, selling exploration data and so on; other Commanders will be able work with or against your minor faction and therefore, your minor faction will be subject to the actions and functions of the Background Simulation (BGS).[1]
