United Mole Enterprise
The United Mole Enterprise is a faction of highly skilled engineers who specialize in the engineering, manufacturing, and transportation of ship-based weapons and defense systems. UME is one of the first official factions in the Starbase universe as well as one of the first to have a large plot located on the starter station.
They sell primarily to larger, neutral factions but also sell to anyone that has enough credits and reputation. Factions will often buy already designed weapons and systems from UME, however, custom contracts for customizing previously developed systems or developing new systems are available with an added research and development cost.
Their main mother-ship is The Mound which is a large carrier that acts as the UME HQ. For trades, meetings, and PR related activities, they will usually take a diplomat ship. Outsourcing is rare as most resources, materials, and parts are manufactured in-house. Trading is done usually with larger groups or factions that distribute goods directly to smaller groups.
The United Mole Enterprise is a member of the Lodestar Alliance.

The Council shall decide your fate.
The Great Mole Council is the group of leaders and decision-makers of the United Mole Enterprise. The members are chosen based on their abilities, dedication, and faithfulness to the Mole Party. The council currently consists of 7 moles, 4 of which are directors of their chosen area. There are no elections, however, members are welcome to retire and the council shall choose the next member.
Voting and meetings occur in the council room located in The Mound. A simple majority is used for most elections, however, the council has the ability to change the system if needed and agreed upon. The council votes on various topics such as foreign affairs, advertisement permission, punishments, and R&D decisions. They may summon persons to the room if needed.
The overseer is the chairman of the council. The overseer maintains order and justice to the council as well as manages and makes sure votes are fair and accurate. The overseer does not have the right to vote in the council. He/she is chosen through the council by vote.
If you have pressing matters or wish to bring up something important, one may call a council meeting by simply requesting one from a council member or director. This will have you and at least a few council members discuss the topic in the room. If needed, the council may delay the decision until all members are present at the next meeting.
While not a democracy, the mole council strives to bring justice, fairness, power, and wealth to the enterprise.
