Alternate Reality
(split 2233)

In the alternate 2259, the Orion Union was a galactic power in the Alpha Quadrant, along with the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire. The Union was bordered by the Federation.

The territory of the Orion Union was labeled on a map that depicted a section of the quadrant. This map, which was a portion of a larger galactic map, was used for monitoring activity in the Neutral Zone, Sectors 45 to 89. The map was in a collection of graphics and video media that were seen on a powerwall in the offices of Admirals Christopher Pike and Alexander Marcus at Starfleet Headquarters. (Star Trek Into Darkness)

The Orion Union was first mentioned in the apocryphal novel The Great Starship Race, which linked it to the Orions.
The Union seems surrounded by the Federation on the map, though as the result of the two-dimensional nature of the map and the fact that only a portion of a galactic map is seen, it is not possible to know this is the case for certain. The map is visible in the video "Star Trek: Into Darkness - User Interface VFX at [1]
