pirate bases associated with story quests are immortal until their quests are completed, and pirate bases will pop up forever outside of the core. They are the unkillable zombie horde sadly.

Piracy is an idea, Mr. Nimiety, and ideas are bulletproof.

0) Use Nexerelin and Industrial Evolution mods

1) Capture or liberate Kapteyn Starworks, size 4, Isirah Star System
2) Capture or liberate Kanta's Den, size 3, Magec Star System
3) *untested* Capture from pirates or make your own colonies with an upgraded heavy industries and a privateer base (ikr, it's like you're almost a pirate yourself at this point)
3.1) Keep good diplomatic profile to ensure positive relationships with other factions, you don't want to raid them.
3.2) Enjoy your colonists raiding pirates by themself lol
4) Continue to scan the map and capturing/abandoning/liberating any core pirate colonies
4.1) Continue to search and destroy any outside of core pirate stations that threatening your colonies (or if they just have a bounty)
5) Make some powerful Special Task Groups to outsource p.4 from you, as well as simple patrol HQs to automatically defend your own worlds
5.1) Also use "Request a fleet" option to make base strikes or even invasions

You can't rid of pirates completely. It's really an idea, you'll basically need to kill an every single humanoid in order to achieve your victory. But you can make their life as miserable as possible, apply the same or even bigger pressure, denying their opportunities, destroying their hopes, dreams, and lives. Do that, and you will be praised by the redacted civilized part of the sector forever.

*by liberating I mean transferring the market to Independent since they don't appear on a victory condition score tracker

You simply can't. Just like how you can't kill real world piracy, pirates always find a way in starsector to go on.

I mean you can if international polities butt out and would let people deal with problem. Piracy in the modern world is an intended feature, rather than something that slipped through the gaps.

I wonder if you ran the game long enough and had colonies in literally EVERY system if pirates would cease?

There are systems with nothing but a star and jump points, can't colonize, their bases would spawn there.
