The Galactic Alliance is the dominant governing body of the galaxy. Using Capital Planet as its headquarters, its members are made up of a number of planetary governments that have agreed to co-exist semi-autonomously under one central democratic government. Star Command was employed as the galaxy's peace-keepers, maintaining exploratory, scientific, diplomatic, and defense functions.
Not much is known about the Galactic Alliance's formation, but it is suggested to be a recent development, as hinted at by Valkyran Raiders, who used to travel freely and "ruled" space. Star Command might also be a recent development formed specifically by the Galactic Alliance to keep their borders safe, but whose responsibilities also extend to policing and maintaining peace within their borders.
Size and Location
There are suggestions of a "galactic border" and a "galactic fringe", which hints at there being boundaries.
The Galactic Alliance is headed by Madame President.
Exploration and Defense
It is known to be defended by Star Command. How long the Galactic Alliance used Star Command for defense is never elaborated upon, and it is unknown if they have other organizations for defense; however, it does seem they rely heavily upon Star Command.
Their reputation seems generally positive within the galaxy. However, some people, such as Zurg and the Gargantian Militant Movement are at odds with the alliance for various reasons.

- According to an interview with Tad Stones, the Galactic Alliance was modeled after the United Federation of Planets from Star Trek.
- The United Galactic Federation from Lilo & Stitch is often the Galactic Alliance as well in the TV series.
- Incidentally, in the Star Wars Legends, the New Republic was superseded by the Galactic Alliance (short for the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances).
