* In RealLife no country can legally have the same name as an already existing country, as several international treaties prevent it and also will have a problem entering the UN. Similar names can be accepted though (example the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo) but polemics over two states using the same name exist in the international comunity as for example the cases of Korea and China. The Republic of China (Taiwan) for example uses China-Taipei in several international situations (like the Olympics) and the pro-independence faction was planning to enter the UN using the name Taiwan. Another complex example of two countries fighting over a name is the polemic over Macedonia, which was settled after Macedonia agreed to change it official name to Northen Macedonia easing relationships with a wiry Greece who claims ownership over the region of the historical Macedonia (which is not Northern Macedonia, or that is what the Greeks claim). This may allow Northern Macedonia to enter the UE and other organizations without worrying for Greece's veto.

Some races (like the Dilgar, Shadows, and Drakh) have no stated governmental body, while the others have ones only stated offhand or in the background material (Drazi Freehold, Brakiri Syndicracy, Abbai Matriarchate, Grome Autocracy, etc), with many of the smaller governments mentioned in the show gathered into the League of Nonaligned Worlds.
