Saw other question ownership of government but posting in my own thread.
I didn’t see the following covered by Sim News or the rules page. Might want some of this info there before you have people wanting to change back because they didn't know.
If I understand the current system now, the current government cannot own factories but have datacards.
This gets them to contract and interact with the other factions.
So if a faction becomes a government I know they gain the Government faction datacards but what happens to the datacards they had as a production faction (for example) and what of the factories that they already own?
I know the Empire and RA have faction specific datacards for:
When a faction becomes a government to they retain the datacards they had for (A) type of faction and (B) items only they built for the galaxy?
Do they gain any other ship/vehicle datacards for their becoming a government?
...or are they just a second tier government in this intergalactic struggle.
Thanks for the info.

As I said, with the factories they'd still own them, same with facility datacards. With ship/vehicle/etc datacards, I'd assume that they keep those and have to give limited copies out to produce, just like the GE, RA, TF, Hapes, and eventually) the FF and NAO will need to do.
I don't believe they gain any ship or vehicle datacards for being a government faction.
