Still being an empire extra-universal, the Federation's society is not very different to most of empires compounds by several species of gigaquadrant. The Federation is very diverse, owning trillions of souls of different species, although it is true that the culture formed by the merger of the society of the six founders species is the most influential and acts as a rol model for others.

This means that the Federation's society is very varied, althought unified through the "Federal Society", that in fact is the original society of the Federation. The Federation's laws usually help to make this fusion, trying to adapt the new member society to the Federal Society.

CultureEdit

Visual ArtsEdit

The Federation is fond of the art, especially the painting and the sculture, but others types are developed too. Due being extra-universals, the Federation is always curious about the local art of the Gigaquadrant, even more when the art in question is curiosly similar to the Federal one.

Many members of the Federation have the tendency to share their own artistic tastes, which vary greatly among different species. Some, like the Chibar, have a preference for military scenes, particularly those that represent real battles of epic proportions, others, such as Uzcar prefer much more abstract images, particularly those with complex geometric features.

From almost the beginning of the Federation both writing and visual arts were replaced almost entirely with holographic representations, with the obvious exception of the murals and mozaicos, the culaes continue to be very popular. Modern paints tend to be pictures in 3D and sculpture has taken a back seat to the development of "cyberart".

ArquitectureEdit

The Federation buildings are not under the same arquitectonic style, mainly because the different artistic tastes and biology of the the different member species. Due this, most of the structures design varies a lot between the worlds, specially the ones that has an only one race living in it. The buildings of ecumenopolis and cosmopolitan planets, anyway, are build on the basic idea to being huge, impressive and functional, often creating huge urban areas with skyscrapers up to kilometers high.

The arquitectonic style, as was said above, varies. Some species are fond of to underground cities, others, instead, enjoy building colossal amphitheatres with many decorations and details. However, the most strange arquitectonic style is the Beliene, who live in living structures.

The Federation has abandoned the use of manual construction and even the use of robots decades ago, due the massive development of the nanotechnology. Nowadays most of the Federation's buildings are made of milimetrics "intelligent blocks", small construction blocks that can move and create adaptative structures in minutes without any manual labour.

ReligionEdit

As an amalgam of different cultures and societies, the Federation home to different religions, all equally respected although some more practiced than others. Some of these are mixed with the traditions of the founder species, and others were adopted from others civilizations in the Gigaquadrant once the Federation setteled in the Milky Way.

  • One God Worship - Once the Federation arrived the Gigaquadrant, some of the traditional beliefs, particularly Kalixtus curiously coincided almost perfectly with the religions known to worship the One God, the gigaquadrant common belief is expanded like wildfire among federal citizens, particularly younger ones. Today, the One God Worship is one of the most common religion between the Federation.
  • The Holy Three - One of the most ancient belief of the Federation societies. The Holy Three supposedly was an ancient group of three species that preceded any other, that each one represented the most fundamental schools of thought in the universe. This belief was losing credibility once the Federation entered the Gigaquadrant, where he had evidence of even more ancient beings.
  • The Wisdom Path - In December 24th, 2791, the Federation received the alarming news that Zein Zatock, former hero and martyr of the Federation and its highest spiritual guide in the history, had ascended and belonged to the association of angelic beings known as the League of Patrons. Since that, many essence users in the Federation tryied to do the same, creating an atheistic belief system known as the Wisdom Path.
  • The Cosmospawn - As the One God Worship, the Cosmospawn was adopted from others gigaqudrant's civilizations, this time mostly because the influence of the Cooperative species. The belief was very accepted by the scientist and some biocentist mystics between the Federation. Anyway, the theory that the Xhodocto are the "Angel Plasma" is not accepted yet.

PhylosophyEdit

Unlike religion, philosophy of the citizens of the Federation is one of the few universal things throughout. This philosphy is based on the belief that the goal of all life is to reach the pinnacle of evolution, technology, society and spirit. How to achieve this, anyway, varies depending on people's own beliefs.

  • Transcendentism - The "transcendentism" is a phylosphy based in the idea that the only way to achieve the perfection is throught the fusion of the biotechnology and the technology singularity. The followers of these phylosophy are known for being great scientist and engieneers, but also are known for being unscrupulous when the time of achieve their aims.
  • Essencialism - The "essencialism" is based in the spirit instead the matter. The followers of these phylosphy are the most wise and the less materialist, believing that the way to achieve the pinnacle of the evolution is throught the ascension.
  • Individualism - Most of the peapole follow the "individualism", a phylosophy that thinks that to reach the top is necessary to improve oneself, at any cost and not worry about the others. The followers of these are the most selfish and cunning in the whole Federation, and very often are the first to improve their bodies with biotech.
  • Communitivism - The most nacionalist are the followers of the "communitivism", a phylosophy that believe that the Federation's members need to unite under one aim and act as an only one being, avoiding any type of discrimination and so suprass all the others civilizations.

The myths and legends of the Federation's species are of common knowledge and are basic in the education of the children, particualry the ones which are full of aesops, for obvious reasons. More complex and heavy literature are very popular between the the young-adults and adults, as stories with morality-related questions, metaphores and allusions to metaphysics.
