After Palpatine's death on Endor the Galactic Empire was swept into chaos. It was eventually defeated during the Battle of Jakku and Rae Sloane with Brendol Hux fled with the Eclipse to the unknown regions. Rae carried out Palpatine's plans should he have died and started creating a force there. This was to be their "First Order" according to Palpatine and this is where the name of the Imperial remnant was created.
Underneath the noses of the New Republic, the remnant grew stronger under the command of Brendol Hux and later his son Armitage Hux. At an unknown time, Supreme Leader Snoke took over the operations. They started to prepare for war with the New Republic, only when their agent in the senate, Lady Carise Sindian was discovered to be involved with the Amaxine warriors and Rinnrivin Di's cartel which were secretly working with the First Order, Leia Organa became suspicious and after resigning from the senate, she created the Resistance to opose this unknown threat. Lady Carise and some of the Centrists then went on to start a movement on joining the First Order.
The First Order's existence was known by the Republic around 3 decades after Palpatine's death and Chancellor Lanever Villecham argued that they posed no real threat to the galaxy as long as they followed the Republic's laws and guidelines. The First Order completely ignored these rules and trained masses of Stormtroopers as well as creating the superweapon out of a planet which was later known as Starkiller Base.
Note: Section needs expansion
The Resistance fought the First Order following the destruction of the Hosnian System on the planet of Takodana and then on Starkiller Base where Poe Dameron successfully destroyed the entire base.
