The Interstellar Alliance

The Interstellar Alliance is exactly what it claims to be; an alliance of a dozen Human populated systems that originated from Sol. This alliance is the descendant of the colonists of the UESS Pioneer colony vessel that miss-jumped across time and space from Earth. Although it has only existed for a short time compared to the other star nations in the area it has found itself within, the Alliance has grown and evolved quickly, establishing it's self as a major galactic power in the local interstellar community. Though not quite as technologically advanced as the other descendants of earth, the Empire of Tai Pan, the inquisitive yet stalwart nature of humanity and its unwillingness to quit has ensured its place in the region.

History of the UESS Pioneer

History of the Planet Eden

The Interstellar Alliance is a federation of human colonies allied under a single central government for their common benefit, while each individual colony world retains it's own independent local government. The central government is organized into a senate based on the capital world of Eden, comprised of representatives of each member world or system. The Interstellar Alliance government is headed by a President and Vice President, who are elected every four years and may serve a maximum of two terms in office.

The Senate is housed at Landfall City, the designated capital of the Interstellar Alliance and the initial world colonized by the UESS Pioneer. Each member world is represented by two senators, an elder senator and a junior senator. These senators and other elected officials work to create policy and operate the Alliance government, primarily focusing on overall well being, defense and trade among the member worlds, while individual planetary governance is overseen by the local governments.

Military

The Alliance maintains a single military that is divided into three sub-branches. First is their navy, which operates as the primary force for policing and protecting Alliance space, as well as functioning as the main offensive spearhead. Second, is their Marines, which function as shipboard soldiers and a rapid assault force. The third is the Army, the main planetary based defense force and secondary assault and occupation force. All three sub-branches have their own command structure, which then reports to the Alliance Military Command, which is headed up by a Supreme Commander, who is promoted from one of the branches as an overseeing operational commander of all armed forces.

Police Forces

The Interstellar Alliance is made up of 12 primary star systems, as well as a number of less populous territories.

Major Star systems

The 12 founding systems of the Interstellar Alliance, each represents one of the original words colonized by the UESS Pioneer

Other Territories

Outside of the main 12 star systems are other smaller territories that the Alliance administers. These are much smaller in scale than the Major Star Systems and often are just small outposts with little in the way of population.

The Interstellar Alliance is was originally founded by colonists from the UESS Pioneer. This ship was full of engineers, hard workers, and scientists looking to make a new home for humanity. Their progressive ideals and science-minded attitudes as led to a very open, results-driven, society focused on improving the well-being of all its citizens.

Though it has been nearly 200 years since the UESS Pioneer set out on its original journey, at least from the perspective of the crew, the frontier spirit is still quite alive. Many in the Alliance still view it as their duty to help others, and to help further the Alliance as a whole. Many are driven towards high-minded endeavors in STEM fields such as medicine, geo-engineering, and exo-biology.

Population

The UESS Pioneer only carried with it 5 million colonists in addition to its crew. Spread between 12 planets, this has led to a small population having ample resources and a serious lack of personal to make use of them. Thanks to artificial wombs, genetic screening, fertility technology and general advances in medical technology it is easy for couples to postpone pregnancy or have a machine carry the child to term. Even couples who can not normally bear children can opt to have them created through genetic engineering and an artificial womb. There are financial incentives for having children, and free childcare makes raising children as stress free as possible. The focus on large families has resulted in average household sizes of 5+ throughout the Alliance.

Civilian Organizations and Companies

While the Interstellar Alliance provides healthcare, food, and living space, it still operates a free market economy. Citizens of the alliance are free to pursue their own goals, or put their efforts towards private enterprise.

The the Interstellar Alliance's technology is highly advanced, allowing for interstellar travel, eradication of disease, and prosperity for all, it is still a relative newcomer on the galactic stage. While their capabilities are constantly improving, they still pale in comparison to nations such as Empire of Tai Pan or Gartagen Union
