Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

One of five worlds to be a part of the Stewart Confederation in 2271,[3] Bedeque was suffering alongside the other worlds following the withdrawal of Terran authority, and by 2288 the Stewart Confederation was barely able to organize itself to order basic replacement parts for factories. The rise to power of David Genovese in 2288 marked a significant improvement in productivity across the Confederation, with his five-year rule as dictator making the state work more efficiently. Bedeque was one example of the improvements made by Genovese during his rule; already the most fertile of the Stewart Confederation worlds, by the end of Genovese's direct rule of the Confederation agricultural output on Bedeque had gone up 80%.[26]

Genovese was overthrown when forces from the Free Worlds League led by Juliano Marik invaded in 2293, following Genovese's rebuffing offers to join the League.[4] Bedeque and the other worlds of the Stewart Confederation were inducted into the League Parliament in 2295 when the Parliament declared the former Confederation to be a Province of the Free Worlds League.[27]
