A political and military grouping from the prequel era in Star Wars. Also referred to more simply as "the Separatists". The opposition to the Republic in the Clone Wars. Made up of many groups opposed to the perceived corruption and bureaucratic decay that the central government on Coruscant had come to represents. Led (publicly) by Count Dooku, its members included the Corporate Alliance, the Trade Federation, the Techno Union, the Intergalactic Banking Clan and the Commerce Guild. Ultimately revealed to be a puppet organization of Emperor Palpatine, who was, in fact, in control of both sides of the war.
The governing body of the CIS is called the "Separatist Council", whose members are generally the heads of each of the constituent guilds. Among the non-guild leaders on the Council are Po Nudo (probably included because he was still sitting in the Galactic Senate at the time) and Poggle the Lesser (who controlled the biggest foundry for the production of the droid armies and was the probable first architect of the Death Star).
The CIS ceased to exist when the entire Separatist Council was slaughtered on Mustafar by a still mostly organic Darth Vader.
