In the lawless area of nullsec, the law comes from whoever can bring in the largest fleet or holds the stations.The largest coalitions hold as much area as one of the empires, but much richer in resources.

Often overlaps with NebulousEvilOrganisation and may have an OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness. Compare to {{Fiction 500}}. Contrast with {{NGO}}. StateSec is a SisterTrope of also being a influential entity with a vast paramilitary corps that isn't part of a formal army, only that it's a governmental agency rather than non-governmental.

* The Ganglion in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' are a "small" crime syndicate originating from the Samaar Federation, which controls around six million light years of space. Aside from simply technologically outclassing humanity, the Ganglion have an army and fleet comparable to (if not larger than) Earth's largest nations, have enlisted entire species as slaves or enforcers, built a flight-capable HumongousMecha that can double as a carrier, and destroyed Earth. They are also implied to have some political influence in the Samaar Federation.

The humans are a bit embarrassed when they discover that by the standards of the Samaar Federation, the Ganglion are just a small gang that nobody has gotten around to squashing yet.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'': The [[ArmiesOfEvil Red Ribbon Army]] has ''vast'' resources and technology, having such things as tanks, aircraft, submarines, androids, and MiniMecha. At one point, Bulma outright says that Earth's actual military doesn't stand a chance against them.

* The Rothschild family. With their insane amounts of wealth (one of the France based Rothchilds had 100 million more francs than the REST OF THE BANKERS OF FRANCE COMBINED) funded both sides of several wars, owned huge amounts of government bonds, declared NOBILITY, and were able to fund such actions as the De Beers diamond monopoly, and that is only the stuff we know about. How much power, businesses, or wealth the family had or has is a mystery.
** The Rothschilds are today only a shadow of their former might. UsefulNotes/WorldWarII was an economic disaster for them, wiping out their real assets, and as the Rothschilds gave up marrying their cousins to keep the wealth within the family, the family wealth has diluted. Nevertheless, they still remain rich.

* In ''VideoGame/''Metroid'', the Space Pirates wield enough military, scientific, and financial power to pose a serious threat to the Galactic Federation. How well they fit this trope is debatable given their secrecy, as they may be an actual government in the areas they control.
