The Commonwealth of Jacinto is the semi-autonomous governing body of Jacinto, overseeing human territory in the Hyacinth system. Established in 2370, the Commonwealth is the main lawmaking body and main representative government of Jacinto for Earth. The Commonwealth elects its Senator to the UEG every four years and features its own Senate, a Colonial Governor and a Supreme Court to uphold both Commonwealth and UEG laws.
When the Colonial Administration Authority was dissolved in 2525, the autonomy of the Commonwealth rose exponentially. By 2545, Jacinto was an independent entity in all but name. When the CAA was absorbed by the UNSC, many secessionist parties within the Commonwealth took the opportunity to rouse support and gain seats in the Colonial Senate.
