    A. Strong men
    Explanation
    The term "strong men" suggests that powerful individuals or leaders were responsible for establishing the central government of the confederation. This implies that it was the influence and actions of these strong individuals that led to the formation of the central government, rather than any formal structure or agreement like the Articles or Panels. The Godfather, while also implying a strong individual, is more commonly associated with organized crime rather than government establishment. Therefore, "strong men" is the most fitting answer choice.
