What do the factions say? 2nd edition for 3.3

The release of 3.3 altered the way how states work, but also adjusted the faction representatives' lines on some cases. Hence, I'm creating a new thread to catalogue the post-3.3 dialogue and retiring the old thread in Dangerous Discussion.

EDIT: Per my own discovery of democracies having new active investment dialogue, I've pre-empted and emptied active investment for all other factions.

Squadron Allegiance Description
A more verbose description of a faction's government, available in squadrons view once pledged to support a faction.
GovernmentVerbose Description
Anarchy
CommunismCommunist governments believe in an equal society, although one controlled by a central group. The means to choose that central group are varied, and often contradict the altruistic aims of such a society. Generally such governments are totalitarian and centralized.
Confederacy
CooperativeCooperative factions are similar to communist ones in that their core precept is equal stature of all members of society. Unlike communist factions, a cooperative's governance is not centralized, but organized through devolved parties and committees. All are expected to work equally for the betterment of their society, rather than that of the individual.
CorporateCorporate State governments extend the corporate structure throughout the society, with shareholding being the equivalent to citizenship. The principles will vary, but are generally set to ensure smooth operations for the corporations, often to the benefit of the attached population.
Democracy
Dictatorship
FeudalFeudal societies are based around a group of feudal leaders, each which have absolute power within their region.
They usually cooperate to appoint a single overall representative, but power rests with the feudal lords, rather than the appointed representative.

Cooperative Investment = Feudal Investment = same as Democracy Investment

(Dictatorship OR Corporate OR Prison Colony), Civil Liberty: "Our space is safe, you can trust us on that. That's why we have announced civil liberty."
 
I've added two new fields for dialogue: Faction summary and squadron allegiance description, which is a more verbose faction description.

Faction summaries, found at every starport's news section, now thank their supporters in flavour appropriate manner. My observations so far indicate that they have just four lines, in accordance with the Anarchy, Corporate, Social and Authoritarian supergroups. Unknown whether designed as intended or should there be more. Theocracies and democracies will thank their supporters and cheer for the confederacy, whereas feudals and patronages now extol loyalty to the party.

Squadrons' allegiance screens now contain a new, more verbose description of the government they are pledged to. In my case, that being Communism Interstellar Union faction, the blurb details they're actually centralized vanguard parties. *horrified gasp*

That's correct - and the summary corresponds to the ethos, not the government type. An Authoritarian Communist faction like the Jadht Nonowners says "The party thanks their supporters for their continued loyalty. Long live the regime."

Squadron summary: independent corporate
"Corporate State governments extend the corporate structure throughout the society, with shareholding being the equivalent to citizenship. The principles will vary, but are generally set to ensure smooth operations for the corporations, often to the benefit of the attached population."
 
I reset my account last year and while I was still Harmless, Penniless and Aimless I noticed an Anarchy faction saying "I was hoping for someone more experienced...".
 
Cooperative, Pending Election: "Elections are likely in the near future."


New type of message:
Confederacy, locally None but War in another system: "We're currently fighting throughout one of our other systems."
 
Cooperative, Pending Outbreak: "We have heard tales of sickness and disease. We are concerned that we may have a medical emergency on our hands." (yes, same as Confederacy says)
 
Feudal, Pending Expansion: "The stars beckon. We shall conquer new systems and bring them under our glorious sovereign's reign!"
(seems to be a change from previous)
 
Feudal Squadron description

"Feudal societies are based around a group of feudal leaders, each which have absolute power within their region.
They usually cooperate to appoint a single overall representative, but power rests with the feudal lords, rather than the appointed representative "
 
The Asleep Bear shared a cooperative-aligned faction's description to me over discord. It is the following:

Cooperative factions are similar to communist ones in that their core precept is equal stature of all members of society. Unlike communist factions, a cooperative's governance is not centralized, but organized through devolved parties and committees. All are expected to work equally for the betterment of their society, rather than that of the individual.
I have updated it to the opening post.
