Prop 31-814D was a Galactic Republic law enabling the taxation of the Free Trade Zones.[1] It was enacted toward the end of Finis Valorum's Chancellery, much to the chagrin of the Trade Federation. In retaliation, the Federation blockaded the planet of Naboo.[2] Unbeknownst to most, the Sith were behind the enactment of the law, as part of a long-running plot by the Dark Lord Darth Sidious to gain absolute power over the galaxy.[3] The Federation's invasion of Naboo led to the planet's Senator, Sheev Palpatine, becoming Supreme Chancellor — but they had done so in part at the behest of Sidious, who was the same person.[4] This allowed Sidious to continue his plans, which culminated in the formation of the Galactic Empire with himself as Emperor.[5]
