The Unilateral Declaration of Independence was the founding document of the Independent Kyros Sector. It was signed shortly after the Battle of Endor by the provisional and pro-Rebel Kyrian government that replaced Moff Neponov's rule. The document cited a number of Imperial atrocities and withdrawals of earlier commitments as reason for secession. It was accepted as legal by High Lady Valsceur's and Lord Admiral Imperial Evir Daal's later governments, the League of Moffs, and, grudgingly, the Imperial Remnant, but not by the New Republic. After the abolishment of the Independent Kyros Sector in 13 ABY and the partition of the Sector, the Declaration was declared illegal by the successor governments.
