President/CEO: Terry Gilyest
Created in the early 28th century, the Lyran Free Traders Association represents over 200 independent interstellar traders within the Commonwealth. Their mission is to provide information to unaffiliated merchants to help them compete against larger corporations. They provide information on what products are in desire on worlds within the Commonwealth, emergency funds and medical care for its members. As many LFTA members regularly travel into the Periphery and other Successor States, the creation of the Federated Commonwealth was a major boon for the Association.
