Minor governments have a lower maximum jump than the major governments (generally J1 or J2), but not all of them can produce it locally. Many of them are also mutual-defense pacts, or economic unions. These states are either Centralized or Loose, but their style code is M, they have a Region code of 0, not 1, and their TL code is A or less (roll 8+ on 2d for TL A, otherwise they are TL 7-9 with a good starport). Roll 1d3 for their spread after you finish the big boys, then start dropping them in, preferably making them interesting. Don’t be afraid to carve them out of borders, especially since the small nation of smugglers between two borders is a nicely justified trope in sci-fi – after all, both the big boys see the advantage of having a small guy to pin their covert gaffes on.
