The Decentralized Democratic Tribunal, also known as the DDT, is the governing body of most of the universe by the 31st century A.D.
The DDT is known to have overthrown PEST and established an Athenian Deomcracy in the universe. It is also know that the DDT was successful in eliminating prejudice and literacy universal. As well under the DDT roughly 72% of citizens have master's degrees. Thanks to advances in technology the DDT had made communication very simple and fast.
However the DDT is not the only governing body in the universe, some planets still remain under totalitarian control groups such as PEST, anarchy groups such as VETO, and a few are in the Old Galactic Union, the previous deomocracy before the PEST takeover.
