In the fictional BattleTech universe, the Successor States are the major military powers of the Inner Sphere, each governed by one of the Great Houses. Each Successor State has its own culture and customs,
The Successor States
Capital world, New Avalon.
Free Worlds League
Capital world, Atreus.
Capital world, Tharkad
The Federated Commonwealth came into being with the marriage of Hanse Davion and Melissa Steiner, joining the Federated Suns and the Lyran Alliance into what was now the most powerful of the Successor States.
Unfortunately, the Federated Commonwealth was torn apart by Hanse and Melissa's children; Victor and Katherine.
Capital worlds, Tharkad and New Avalon.
While not strictly being one of the Successor States, ComStar is politically influential, as it maintains a monopoly over the HyperPulse Generators, which are crucial to interstellar communication; the threat of a communications blackout makes ComStar a significant power within the Inner Sphere.
ComStar itself is composed of quasi-mystical technicians who tend the HPG arrays. They profess to be neutral to the politics of the Inner Sphere. Jerome Blake is something of a religious figure to ComStar; oaths such as "By the blessed Blake" or epithets such as "Blake's Blood!" are not uncommon. Jerome Blake was the original founder of ComStar, after the Star League fell, and is considered by those within ComStar to be the savior of the Inner Sphere.
Capital, and only world, Terra.
The story of ComStar is heavily influenced by Isaac Asimov's Foundation books.
