The Sheliak Corporate (or simply the Corporate for short) was the governing body of the Sheliak. The capital of the Corporate was the Sheliak homeworld, in the Shelia system.

In 2255, there was a brief skirmish between the Sheliak Corporate and the United Federation of Planets. Eventually, peace was established through the Treaty of Armens.

Over a century later, a dispute broke out between the Federation and the Sheliak over Federation colonists on Tau Cygna V, a planet in the Sheliak sphere of influence. Lieutenant commander Data played the lead role in trying to convince the colonists to evacuate the planet before Sheliak colonists arrived. Captain Jean-Luc Picard used the third-party arbitration clause in the Treaty of Armens to resolve the conflict. The Sheliak agreed to wait three weeks for the colonists' evacuation.
