|2.37 June 7, 2228 CE - Miniya Keiji is elected as the second Grand Chancellor
|June 7, 2228 a new Grand Chancellor is elected to help safeguard the UGTO interests outside Sol from pirate influence. Miniya Keiji becomes the second Chancellor of the UGTO. She proved to be a competent if not powerful ruler. She mostly stayed out of the business of the government so long as the Senate gave her lip service as ruler and passed the occasional measure put forth by her office. Of note is the fact that she was able to sneak in some important social and economic reforms, including the Worker Emancipation Act, which prevented corporations from being able to own employees that are full UGTO citizens, and the Tax Code Ceiling Reform, which put a limit on the maximum percentage of a citizen’s taxes based on each citizens personal income. It could also be said that the declaration of a colony as a full member was hamstrung by this last measure, because colonists are not citizens until their world is a full member in the UGTO Senate. Since they are not citizens, there is no law to stop the UGTO government from levying as severe of taxes on its colonies as the Senate deems fit.
