Solar Confederation

Structure

The old confederation was extremely decentralized, the central government had only jurisdiction over the army as well as federal justice. The ancestor of the actual Supreme Court, located on Earth, settled cases of justice which could not be settled by the lower levels. The president was elected by universal suffrage by the entire population for a ten-year term.

History

The Solar Confederation is the government that took over the leadership of humanity from 2065 to 2200, it looked like the countries of Earth, Mars as well as the government of the Moon. Its history was marked by the conquest of the solar system thanks to the Fusion Drive and the Star Drive which came about sixty years after the first. The last significant event of this period was the discovery of wormholes, the Venus crisis and the Zhihaho Complex Disaster which prompted the creation of the Federal Republic.

Disbandment

The Solar Confederation is the ancestor of the Federal Republic and was dissolved in 2200 when this one was founded. This dissolution of the old confederation was brought about by the discovery of Croshaw, the Venus crisis and the Zihaho Complex Disaster which showed the weaknesses of the very decentralized political system of the Confederation. These events led to a popular uproar which forced the leaders of the various countries making up the Confederation to take part in negotiations for the signing of a new constitution. The fact that Mars, Luna and Earth have been united under a single government for over a hundred years and that it has a culture, policies quite similar also made it possible to negotiate an agreement allowing to endow the new central government with much more extensive power which also led to the creation of several crucial institutions today such as the Senate.

Territories

The territory of the Solar Confederation spanned the entire solar system. There were two planets where most of the population was located, that is to say the Earth and Mars and to some extent Luna. The rest of the system was covered with a myriad of outposts, research stations and mining complexes from the Solar Confederation or private corporations.

Military

Because the Solar Confederation had no neighbors, the military included only a small fleet of corvettes and destroyers to fight piracy on the side of the Navy as well as garrisons of soldiers for the protection of the Earth, Luna and Mars.

Technological Level

This period was marked by a strong technological development which saw the birth of several key technologies which are at the base of the republican society of today. The mastery of neutrinos communications, the Star Drive, the development of genetic engineering and the slowing down of old age all began to be mastered in this period.

Religion

It is at this time that the inevitable decline of the old great religions will begin, with economic, political and social stability regained, the need for comfort of the population through religion will quietly erode. Around 2100, the Catholic Church followed by several religious organizations, unable to pay its operating costs due to the decrease in constant tithe income and the elimination of stock markets will definitely collapse. The same pattern will be reproduced with several centralized religious organizations, faith then thinking at the level of individuals and local communities who will finance their places of worship themselves. However, the number of people declaring themselves religious within humanity will constantly decrease to drop below the 50% mark when the Confederacy dissolves into the Federal Republic in 2200.

Agriculture & Industry

As today, food production was done by vertical farms and traditional ecological farms, which ensures non-polluting, inexpensive production and ensures food self-sufficiency for the Confederation. The same goes for the production of meat which was ensured by the production of synthetic meat. The production of energy was ensured by nuclear fusion and the Confederation had a very developed industry which concentrated mainly on Mars and the Earth.

Trade & Transport

The main industrial centers of the Confederation were Earth and Mars which processed most of the resources from the outer colonies. Mars was also a hub between the inner and outer planets of the solar system which turned it into the economic capital of the system. Earth being primarily a prominent political center serving as the headquarters of the Solar Confederation.

The Solar Confederation was a direct democracy, the laws proposed by the government were directly submitted to the citizen through the ancestor of the Republican Space Network. However, the General Assembly is always present and is made up of representatives of the governments of the Confederation appointed by them, this one serves to allow the national governments to express their opinions.

The ancestor of the actual Supreme Court dealt with cases that could not be resolved in the lower courts. Overall, the federal court system was quite similar to the current system, the only difference being the addition of specialized courts.
