Star Wars - Confederacy of Planets
The Confederacy of Independent Systems was a breakaway movment led by Darth Sidious and Count Dooku.

The Confederacy went to war with the Republic and overthrew the capital planet, Coruscant and in the first half of the war captured many planets despite the droid armies of the Republic.

After three years of brutal war with heavy losses on both sides the Republic defeated the Confederacy, which was what Darth Sidious had planned. His manipulation of events was always to ensure the return of the Sith.

The Galactic Empire was formed and much of the Confederacy's war machinery was inducted into the Empire including the Death Star. Some races of people were enslaved and Imperial Stormtroopers quelled most opposition the new regime.
