In Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, the 'average' faction, led by "Commisioner pravin LAL*.
They have more millitary prowess than the turtle players:
( Gaia's Stepdaughters, The University of Planet, Morgan Industries),
and more scientific prowess than the rush players:
( The Human Hive, The Spartan Federation, and The Lord's Believers.)

The Peacekeeping Forces Have an affinity for Democracy, and abhor totalitarianism. This inevetably leads to conflict with the Human Hive, and usually with the Lord's Beleivers.

*(yes, i did that on purpouse. it is convention in international relations to capitalize family names, but retain native order: our president's name would be written george BUSH; the name of the japanese prime minister would be written MASAHARU morimoto.)

Peacekeeper Social Engineering:
-1 Efficiency
One extra talent for every four citizens

Can exceed population limits by two
Agression: Erratic
Agenda: Democratic
Aversion: Police State
Leader: Commissioner Pravin Lal

The Peacekeepers are probably the most powerful overall of the original seven SMAC factions. Although they don't have any positive Social Engineering benefits, their sole negative is easily worked around, and their other benefits are very powerful indeed. The doubling of council votes almost guarantees that you will get to be the Planetary Governer, which increases your income through commerce and gives you automatic infiltration into every faction, a very powerful ability. Because of the lack of bonuses or penalties to either the military or economy, you can easily be either agressive or defensive with the Peacekeepers, though you will not usually be the absolute best at either one. The free talents are also a very powerful ability, especially on Transcend difficulty, where controlling drones can be difficult. Finally, the relaxed population limit alows you to Population Boom up to larger bases sizes than anyone else, which can rapidly give you a big advantage.
