The Earth Directorate was the planet-wide government of Earth that was formed after the Great War to arbitrate international (and inter-corporate) disputes. It is serves as a regulatory body for cataloging habitable stellar systems and sell exploitation rights and nominal control of them to the highest bidders.

At some point the ED sold Halcyon to the Halcyon Holdings Corporation.
