The Absolutists were a group of Selonians, including the Overden allied with the Sacorrian Triad, who sought to establish absolute Selonian independence using Selonia's planetary repulsor as a weapon, which they eventually did against the Bakuran ship Watchkeeper. They were constantly at odds with the Republicanists, who saw membership in the New Republic as beneficial to their world, and fought with them in an undeclared Selonian Civil War. The Sacorrian Triad eventual helped dissolve the Absolutists.
