Its immense influence made it the favored pawn of the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious, who manipulated Viceroy Nute Gunray to stoke dissatisfaction in the systems controlled by the Federation, sowing the seeds for a war that would destroy the Galactic Republic.Under Gunray's leadership, the Trade Federation was responsible for the blockade of Naboo in 32 BBY in protest against increased taxation.The Trade Federation held maps of hyperspace routes closely rather than sharing them, enabling them to cement their hold over trade routes.Only the Jedi and the Office of the Supreme Chancellor were able to maintain maps of similar quality.Under the brief leadership of its final Viceroy, Sentepeth Findos, the Trade Federation was dissolved and imperialized by Sidious' new Galactic Empire.A small remnant led by Marath Vooro continued resistance for several months until its defeat in the Five Veils Campaign.Though the Trade Federation gained representation in the Galactic Senate in exchange, the leadership remained disgruntled at the loss of some of its monopoly.
Other sectors were forced to give up their economic self-determination, becoming perpetual customers for the Trade Federation.The Federation had many planetary protectorates throughout the galaxy, often using the ceremonial halls inside their core ships to sign protectorship agreements.Within two generations, the Trade Federation controlled enough Senate votes to hamper competitors, influence the courts, and stall legislation."Supreme Chancellor, delegates of the Senate, a tragedy has occurred, which started right here with the taxation of trade routes, and has now engulfed our entire planet in the oppression of the Trade Federation!"
