Did the polity that controlled Vulcan space have a name? One of the more peculiar things about Enterprise was that the species that would eventually become part of the Federation did not seem to have organized "states" with borders in the same way that they do in the 23rd and 24th centuries. For instance Enterprise seemed to wander around without ever encountering the same type of political rigidity (i.e. border crossing, patrol ships etc) that dominated other Treks. Other than the Andorian Empire (which never seemed clearly defined) and the Klingon Empire (and of course the distant Romulan Star Empire) few political entities are defined.
