Star Wars: After the Awakening
Third Galactic Republic
The Third Galactic Republic, also known as the New Republic was formed four years after the Battle of Endor by the Alliance of Free Systems. The Alliance was formed by members of the Alliance to Restore the Republic as well as other worlds that were independent of the Empire. It’s first capital was Galactic City on Coruscant, but eventually they choose to have a rotating capital, which at the time of the attack by Starkiller Base was Hosnian Prime.
