The United Federation (also known as UNIFED) was a club that was founded by Jon Shuni on a BBS called FIDOnet on March 7, 1993. The club later expanded to irc and America Online. In December of 1996, the club split into three separate groups. The only group of sims to survive the split, under the command of Shuni, was used to launch a reformed club in January called the Federation Sim Fleet (FSF).
