Are Ijad a spiritual/philosophical movement more akin to Buddhism/Shintoatoism or a literal, "God wants it this Way!" sorta thing?

Yeah, the Trilobite is right. There are plenty of examples through history.

Even when there isn't any rampant abuse people get greedy fast. Here in Alberta we have a new hard right wing party who favor economic isolationism (they don't want to federal royalties on oil and don't want to make inter-provincial transfer payments), environmental deregulation (while denouncing global warming) and want to repeal laws that prevent the propogation of hate literature... It would be comical if it didn't look like they might win a majority.

Times aren't tough in Alberta, anyone who is willing to do crappy work in a harsh environment (sounds like the Free Colonies doesn't it) can make a bunch of money without needing any skills or education.

Interestingly these are the same folks that are pandering to oil companies (sounds like union loyalists huh?).

I guess my point is when you look at Billions of dollars people get stupid and greedy, I can only imagine how fast things would go off the rails when the profit of an entire solar system is on the line.

Are there specific colors each of the three main factions self-identifies with? I.e. the main color of the SU flag or the FC flag, or specific colors the Ijad identify with their religion / selves?

Inexorable. Progress.

Have there been any "lost" colonies, or groups that set out out side of the SU pervade?
I am think of starting the back ground for a group that hacked the gate and got shot off to a different system than intenteded. And had the destination codes burn out the memory of the gate. As a state that had its own surviveal first and foremost it could be very advanced technologically but low population. And now as part of the uprising the SU shots a gate into their system/systems for a stratigic reason only to find them instead.
