The Festival is an upload civilization originally for purpose of repairing galactic information networks, but now travels between star systems seeking unfamiliar information for the sake of interest and granting wishes to those that they receive it from. It often builds the facilities it needs from local materials when it arrives and usually prefers to interact with other upload civilizations. Due to vast amount of wishes being granted to individuals, allowing civilians to gain deadly weapons and forbidden technology, the New Republic deemed The Festival as a major threat to governmental stability and thus "declared war" against The Festival, only to realize that it is not a force run by living entities or an organization with definite structure and that combating against such a civilization is fruitless.
