General background: The Illuvauromeni Commonality of Everlasting Light, a relatively new political and supra-national entity, is the 'finished product' of the old Empire of the Eternal Dawn, which was in turn built on the bones of the preceding Commonwealth of Ma-tek, and before that, the Empire of the Eternal Flame. ICEL represents the last phase of this stage of development for the Illuvauromeni People - or so it is believed inside the Commonality. A former 'leading military' member of SATO, ICEL was once commonly believed to be either a superpower, or as close to said description as can be held. A founding and 'Eternal' member of CENNA along with its long-time ally Menelmacar, the old EOTED was a leading nation on the world stage, having taken central roles in several major international incidents and events. The Commonality has yet to become a defined quantity in modern solar politics, however. The Commonality is lead by four branches of government; the executive branch, the Executive Council; the legislative branch, Imperial House; the Judicial branch, comprising several court systems, and the constitutional branch, Citizens House. The Empire of The Eternal Dawn was formed in Dawn Year 1; the Iluvauromeni Commonality of Everlasting Light came into existance in early 2 d.e. Recent background:

The last twelve months have produced unprecedented economic expansion for the Commonality, largely related to an influx of capital from space-based ventures. An increase in stellar industrial capacity over the last twelve months has driven this expansion. The last twelve months have also seen the launch of two new colonies - Cyrnal Yste, Mars orbit, and Jovian Sunset, inside the atmosphere of Jupiter. The latter is expected to provide significant economic gain in the long-term in the form of future development of helium-3 atmospheric mining operations, whereas the former is seen as a largely political move intended to improve the Commonality's influence in the Martian system. The last few months have been marred by minor insurgency.
