In Escape Velocity Nova, a government, also called a faction, is an organized group that has a common goal. Among Nova's various governments are the Polaris, Federation, Rebellion, Aurorans, Vell-os, and the various factions of the Pirates. During the game, you have a choice of joining one of the major (and occasionally one of the minor) factions and gaining access to their ships and equipment. There are three main governments in Nova, and several smaller ones to work for in the course of the game.
