She hums. "The High Republic kind of had that? There was the Senate, and senators were elected by member planets or regions, and the senators elected the Chancellor. And the New Republic has a pretty similar system."

"But the High Republic turned into Palpatine's Empire, and the New Republic is... Probably more centralized than the High Republic got while still pretending to be a democracy, and their leader, the First Senator, doesn't have term limits, but they rule a lot less territory - and a lot of people were really pissed when the Core planets that'd been taking part in the rebellion against the Empire decided to try to reform the Republic with themselves in charge of everyone else."

She thwacks a panel into place. It only sparks a little.

"Oh, I'm ready."

"Good. I'll see you in the air."

Permalink

"Yeah, from behind."

"A good view... After I've lapped you, of course."

What path are they thinking?

Maybe the one by the cliffs out east, for proper podracing excitement.
