Railgun:2350 (OOC/Open/FT-Nation Rp)

Railgun: 2350




Subject: Universal Gift
Attachment: Project Wayfinder.idf


Over three hundred years ago, in the aftermath of the third world war. our collective ancestors walked hand-in-hand out into the Solar System, from first settling Luna and Mars, colonizing the vast network of asteroids of the Belt and the many moons of Jupiter and Saturn, to the farthest reaches of the system at Pluto and Charon. At the time, the Solar System seemed so large, a never ending bounty that would sustain Humanity for generations to come. But as the decades went along, space lost its luster. As Human expansion continued into every corner possible, the system began to feel smaller. Within decades of settling up our first colonies, we were already beginning to fight over who got what resources among the belt. Within a century, Earth, Mars, Luna, and Venus were tearing each other apart as the first colonies were fighting for their independence. Before long, they too, in competition with Earth, began to exploit and oppress those in Belt and the Outer Systems, failing to see the irony in the situation just as any group of oppressed turned oppressor throughout history. It's been almost 50 years since the people of the Outer System freed themselves of the Inner yoke, only to shortly begin fighting each other over petty squabbles that the Inner Planets forced on them with their own proxy wars decades earlier.

Up until recently, I believed that I was playing a part in freeing our species from this never ending violence. For 23 years, I have spent the better part of my professional career as a crucial member of the UNTRAI, up until this message goes out to every network in the Solar System, I was the Project Lead of Project Wayfinder. Me and over 400 of my brilliant colleagues were tasked with R&D of Faster Than Light technology. It had been slow but fulfilling work. Last year, we had finally made the breakthrough many of us had waited our entire lives for. Our test probe, after a year of its launch with our prototype FTL drive, we received its signal in the Alpha Centauri System. At first, we were elated, but as soon as the Higher Ups found out, we heard word that schematics were already being drawn up for new patterns of warships with our new FTL drives attached. We had unknowingly become the cause of potentially millions dead from a weapon that would bring back Earth Supremacy to the Solar System and Beyond.

I have decided to take a stand and attempt to possibly pave the way for a true lasting peace. Attached to this message is an IDF detailing the science behind the FTL drive and the schematics the test drive we developed a year ago. Unfortunately, I will not be able to see whatever this may bring. Project Wayfinder is-was of the highest classification level, within minutes of me sending out this message to the Solar System, a UN black ops team will be finding my dead body. All I can say is do with this technology as you wish. I only hope whatever you choose to do with it will be the right answer.

#Railgun250
NS Name: Tagali Federation
Flag:Image
Nation/Organization Name: United Nations of Earth
Claim (Pick an empty one from the Roster): Earth
Capitol/Base of Operations: New York City, Northeastern American Administration Zone
Main Industries: Organic Material, Technological Research
History (Keep Timeline in mind):

The UN began to take its modern form in 2029 after the end of the Third World War. While the conflict didn't go nuclear as everyone feared, large regions of the planet, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Siberia and the North American Arctic, and Central and Eastern Asia were severely damaged and unstable. These areas were made into the first Administration Zones, with the UN charged with rebuilding and securing these areas for a time that they would once again become independent, a time that would never come. The UN also tasked the cleaning up orbit of the debris left over from combat between the US Space Forces, Russian Kosmastreloks, and the Chinese Taikong zhàn shì. This lead to an increase of funding and interest in space technology, which would accumulate in missions and eventual colonization of Mars and Luna throughout the 2040s and 2050s.

Over the next half-century, the UN would see expansion into the Belt as well as growing it's influence on Earth by gaining control over the last independent nations on the planet. While this period would see separatist conflicts throughout the Belt and regions on Earth, the late 21st and early 22nd century are seen as a golden age, particularly for Earth. Reorganization of food supply chains would see an end to hunger on Earth. Mass Restructuring of cities across the planet, a switch to plant-based protein for the majority of the population, and the widespread adoption of fusion reactors and renewable energy sources have aided in the UN's efforts to battle climate change on the planet, a fight which continues to this day.

However, things took a turn for the worst as independence movements on Mars and Luna would escalate into full blown war in the 2150s. First Mars would outmaneuver the UN fleet in the Battle of Deimos and forced Earth to recognize Martian Independence. The Lunar Independence war a decade later would be the deadliest conflict since the 3rd World War as it quickly became an exchange between Lunar Railgun emplacements and Earth-based Nuclear Missiles. Ever since then, Earth's power has been eroding as it competes with more and more independent powers in the system.
Culture:

Individual nation states no longer exist on Earth, instead being replaced by Regional Administration Zones. With freedom of movement, a global melting pot has arisen as people travel and live all around the world with ease. Most of Earth's population lives within cities in massive arcologies or in limited and heavily regulated family plots. A population of 500 Million also inhabit various space stations in Earths orbit, which are often the cause of diplomatic incidents with Earth's closet rival, Luna. Poverty and hunger have been mostly wiped out with the exception of a few areas known as "Red Zones". These areas have seen devastating separatist conflicts ever since Global Unification in the early 22nd Century. These areas include the Pacific Northwest, Britain, Queensland, South Africa, and Afghanistan.

Outside of the Red Zones, Earth boasts one of the highest qualities of life in the system. Either after completing Secondary School or once they've completed University, UN citizens are required to serve a minimum of two years within suitable department or organization within the United Nations. The most common choices are the Departments of Peace Operations,Global Agriculture, and Infrastructure Development. Once their two years are up, individuals may choose to continue working in these departments, move on to higher education if they came straight out of secondary school, go into the private sector, work abroad with friendly regimes in the system, or simply live off of Basic Income.

While the most populous planet in the system, the population is stagnate and expected to drop. By 2500, it is estimated that Earth's population will drop back to 8 billion, quickly being overtaking by Mars.

Military Population (no more than 5%): The United Nations Security Forces have an estimated 500 Million personnel serving in various roles
Fleet Size: 1,000 military vessels
Military Info: The UNSF is largely a conscripted force, with many being funneled into it by the UN's Mandatory Public Service Program. The UNSF has over 250 Million Active Personnel at any given time, with another 150 Million in Reserves. The last 100 Million serve in various logistical and bureaucratic roles. UN doctrine focuses on air superiority, with most strategies focusing around naval vessels knocking out enemy ships, satellites, and other orbital platforms, leaving enemy ground forces isolated and easily dispatched in coordination between ground and orbiting forces.

UN fleets are composed mostly frigates and Cruisers in support of a contingent of carriers and dreadnought vessels. UN fleets also rely detachments of stealth vessels, meant to go behind enemy lines and soften enemy positions and strike at critical objectives ahead of the main force. Once pitched combat is initiated, dreadnoughts are meant to create a screen of torpedoes as cruisers and strike craft get into railgun range, meanwhile Frigates screen for any missiles or strike craft with their PDCs.

While the UN military is formidable, it is greatly limited by Luna. To leave and return to Earth, UN vessels have to time their reentry into UN space as to not violate Lunar space. Any war plans the UN wants to accomplish, they have to do in a way where Luna is out of the equation one way or another.

UN Fleets

Home Fleet: 400 vessels, guarding Earth, stands as a deterrent to Luna
1st Fleet: 100 vessels, patrolling/anti-piracy between Earth/Luna and Mars, monitors Martian activity
2nd Fleet: 100 vessels, patrolling/anti-piracy between Earth/Luna and Venus, monitors Venusian activity, often given prototype equipment to field test
3rd Fleet: 100 vessels, location classified (somewhere in the Inner System or Belt), meant to stay hidden and constantly moving with minimum contact with command and the Logistics Fleet. will only act in case Earth is threatened or occupied
4th Fleet: 100 vessels, equipped with mining equipment and meant to secure resources in the Belt and bully independent miners off of their claim
5th Fleet: 100 vessels, patrolling/anti-piracy between the belt and the outer system, monitors the outer system, but can't stray too far from support of the 4th Fleet
1st Logistics and Resupply Fleet: 100 vessels, mostly cargo freighters and escort craft, supplies the various fleets outside of Earth's orbit.

Looks very interesting! Just wanted to ask how balanced things are between the different planetary powers? Is Earth for instance with its high standard of living, bountiful resources and massive population still the dominant Superpower, with Mars and Venus the only comparisons while the rest of the System are lucky to live a few light minutes away from the giants?

Also, what's been the big economic incentive for the outer colonies? Is there any unobtainium-type fictional material that made resource extraction in the outer systems worthwhile, or did technology just make living out there affordable, while overpopulation made living back on Earth too expensive? (basically curious what drove people to move off of Earth/the inner planets!)

Since Jupiter, Saturn, its moons, rings and lagrange trojans are teeming with Helium-3, Iron, Sulfur, Hydrogen and other essential elements more abundant than in Earth, I think there is some sort of mining craze that led to people populating these regions, just like California during the Gold Rush.

An interesting premise, may I posit some questions:

1. What is the status of Orion Propulsion and/or Laser Propulsion?
2. What is the status of AI and Robotics

And finally, I'd like to reserve the Oort cloud settlements, if that's alright.

Please elaborate on what orion and laser propulsion are?

As for AI and Robots....

AI and robotics have come a long way with many industries have large amounts of automation in them and exo and mech suits being common place, but nothing like androids and independent AI still have a long ways to go.

Edit: I'll allow the Oort Cloud but keep in mind you'll only have 34,000 people in the entirety of the Oort Cloud.

I'll throw down some semi-reservations for Titan or Ganymede. If someone else comes along who really wants one of them, I dont really mind one or the other (maybe slightly prefer Titan all else being equal?).

I'll trow a reservation for Ganymede as I've done a WIP app into it:

NS Name: Sarderia

Nation Name: United Jovian Colonies

Flag:

Claim: Ganymede, 624 Hektor, 588 Achilles, several other Trojan and Hilda asteroids of Jupiter, several mining stations in Jupiter

Leader: President Henry William Wilkins

Capital: Port Jovian

Main Industries: Mining (Hydrogen, Helium, Sulfur, Oxygen, Iron, Carbon, others), Hydroponics-based Agriculture, Transport and Cargo, Manufacturing

History: The United Colonies began with an UN-sponsored colonization effort to settle Jupiter and the Asteroid Belts with human presence. Largest of these initiatives, the Endeavour Project, started with an initial fleet of 10 colony ships, led by the Mayflower, based on an ancient Earth vessel of the same name. The colonists arrived in Ganymede by 2094 to found the Jovian moon had been settled by corporations from Earth. But instead of prolonging conflict with the colonists, and therefore the UN administration, these Earth corporations estabilished subsidiaries based on the Belt and cooperated with the colonists; turning Ganymede with more arcologies and eco-complexes to provide the barren world with heat and oxygen. The colonists dug even deeper into Ganymede’s ice crust when they first found water – a global saline ocean that encompasses Ganymede and with it, primitive forms of life.

Soon after, Ganymede became a center of scientific research as Earth scientists flocked down to study the exobiologies present these; the companies benefit by estabilishing mining and cargo facilities, employing local colonists. Soon after, with these corporations’ incentives, the colonists began developing their corporations as well, with larger Earth conglomerates acting as patronizing stakeholders. The period of relative peace continued until separatism broke out on Earth; people from the Pacific and British Island administration zones began growing dissent, and opportunistic corporate entities could not pass at any attempt to get richer. Those who was displaced by this conflict, victims of the tensions on Earth, quickly fled to these Belt colonies; the local colonial administration in Ganymede accepted these refugees with open arms. It is around 2103 that Port Salvador was founded on Ganymede’s ice crust exterior by the refugees from Earth – naming it Savior, as a bastion of new life for them. The first Colonial Charter was estabilihsed a year later, granting all citizens, refugees, and those who seek new opportunity to settle in Ganymede and its surrounding regions.



Culture: Being a nation that is founded from immigration and colonization, the United Colonies’ government is very xenophile in nature; anyone could be a citizen of the Colonies as long as they follow the given procedures. The United Colonies is also fiercely and staunchly independent, their freedom being gained by a series of struggles against the Inner System powers; many who are far more powerful than they were. The United Colonies called itself a “bastion of freedom and democracy”, guaranteeing individual freedom, equality of opportunity, and favoring diplomatic approaches to other nations over militaristic ones, much like the United States of America during its early years. However, the United Colonies also maintains a strong military presence to deter attacks from both the Inner System states, its Belt neighbours, and the Outer System nations.

The United Colonies is divided into thirteen states, each having a massive amount of local autonomy to the point that the federal government exists only to facilitate international relations. However, these states are bound by federal rules that are implemented throughout the United Colonies, and no federal rule shall stray from the Colonial Constitution, the supreme body of authority from which all laws and practices in the United Colonies refer to. The government is headed by a President, who acts as both the head of state and government. The legislative functions are handled by a bicameral legislature – the Colonial Senate, its upper house, and the Council of Representatives, its lower house.

National Anthem: Hard Times Come Again No More

Military Population: The United Colonies maintain about 18 million soldiers to garrison Ganymede, and another 7 million around the Colonies’ other posessions. About 34 million reserve forces are readied as backup paramilitary units should a conflict rises.

I'll trow a reservation for Ganymede as I've done a WIP app into it:

NS Name: Sarderia

Nation Name: United Jovian Colonies

Flag:

Claim: Ganymede, 624 Hektor, 588 Achilles, several other Trojan and Hilda asteroids of Jupiter, several mining stations in Jupiter

Leader: President Henry William Wilkins

Capital: Port Jovian

Main Industries: Mining (Hydrogen, Helium, Sulfur, Oxygen, Iron, Carbon, others), Hydroponics-based Agriculture, Transport and Cargo, Manufacturing

History: The United Colonies began with an UN-sponsored colonization effort to settle Jupiter and the Asteroid Belts with human presence. Largest of these initiatives, the Endeavour Project, started with an initial fleet of 10 colony ships, led by the Mayflower, based on an ancient Earth vessel of the same name. The colonists arrived in Ganymede by 2094 to found the Jovian moon had been settled by corporations from Earth. But instead of prolonging conflict with the colonists, and therefore the UN administration, these Earth corporations estabilished subsidiaries based on the Belt and cooperated with the colonists; turning Ganymede with more arcologies and eco-complexes to provide the barren world with heat and oxygen. The colonists dug even deeper into Ganymede’s ice crust when they first found water – a global saline ocean that encompasses Ganymede and with it, primitive forms of life.

Soon after, Ganymede became a center of scientific research as Earth scientists flocked down to study the exobiologies present these; the companies benefit by estabilishing mining and cargo facilities, employing local colonists. Soon after, with these corporations’ incentives, the colonists began developing their corporations as well, with larger Earth conglomerates acting as patronizing stakeholders. The period of relative peace continued until separatism broke out on Earth; people from the Pacific and British Island administration zones began growing dissent, and opportunistic corporate entities could not pass at any attempt to get richer. Those who was displaced by this conflict, victims of the tensions on Earth, quickly fled to these Belt colonies; the local colonial administration in Ganymede accepted these refugees with open arms. It is around 2103 that Port Salvador was founded on Ganymede’s ice crust exterior by the refugees from Earth – naming it Savior, as a bastion of new life for them. The first Colonial Charter was estabilihsed a year later, granting all citizens, refugees, and those who seek new opportunity to settle in Ganymede and its surrounding regions.



Culture: Being a nation that is founded from immigration and colonization, the United Colonies’ government is very xenophile in nature; anyone could be a citizen of the Colonies as long as they follow the given procedures. The United Colonies is also fiercely and staunchly independent, their freedom being gained by a series of struggles against the Inner System powers; many who are far more powerful than they were. The United Colonies called itself a “bastion of freedom and democracy”, guaranteeing individual freedom, equality of opportunity, and favoring diplomatic approaches to other nations over militaristic ones, much like the United States of America during its early years. However, the United Colonies also maintains a strong military presence to deter attacks from both the Inner System states, its Belt neighbours, and the Outer System nations.

The United Colonies is divided into thirteen states, each having a massive amount of local autonomy to the point that the federal government exists only to facilitate international relations. However, these states are bound by federal rules that are implemented throughout the United Colonies, and no federal rule shall stray from the Colonial Constitution, the supreme body of authority from which all laws and practices in the United Colonies refer to. The government is headed by a President, who acts as both the head of state and government. The legislative functions are handled by a bicameral legislature – the Colonial Senate, its upper house, and the Council of Representatives, its lower house.

National Anthem: Hard Times Come Again No More

Military Population: The United Colonies maintain about 18 million soldiers to garrison Ganymede, and another 7 million around the Colonies’ other posessions. About 34 million reserve forces are readied as backup paramilitary units should a conflict rises.

Awesome, will put together something for Titan in that case.

Am tossing up either a good ol' theocracy or a semi-dystopic megacorporation conglomerate. Anyone got any thoughts that might be able to break the deadlock?

And finally, I'd like to reserve the Oort cloud settlements, if that's alright.


Please elaborate on what orion and laser propulsion are?


Orion Propulsion is an immensely powerful propulsion system based around a specialized nuclear charge that is used to fire a plume of plasma at a pusher plate, which in turn uses the force to move the craft it's attached to. Allows for massive amounts of mass to be moved around.

Laser Propulsion relies on a network of stations outfitted with powerful lasers that impact a spacecraft with a sail, propelling it from station to station.

Both of these would be incredibly useful in an environment such as the Oort Cloud, where presumably the population density is incredibly low and sparse, but on the other side both of these systems could be weaponized (The nuclear charges being modified for narrower, more destructive plasma and the lasers being turned on spacecraft instead of being used to propel), so I'd figure I'd clear it with ya first.

NS Name:3rd Britan
Nation/Organization Name: The Unitary state of the Icegiants
Flag (Spoiler Images):
Image
Claim (Pick an empty one from the Roster): Triton
Capitol/Base of Operations:New Dublin
Main Industries:helium and gas extraction, some metal alloys
History (Keep Timeline in mind): as one of the most heavily populated planets in outer system. It imposed its influence on the less sized dwarf planets out side the major areas, most notably Pluto. However its influence has waned over time, gradually and it has resorted to large scale mining over much of the plant neptune and uranus . It has farely hostile relations with its age old enemy, Venus a very aggressive and competing trade partner which threatens to drastically diminish the tritons influence in the outer system
Culture: Most notably British, But it has a distinct French culture on the eastern side of the moon.
Military Population (no more than 5%): about 10,000 at a stretch, but that is a peace time army
Fleet Size: 20 corvete style ships and one warship, 4 research vessels and over 200 repair droids
Military Info: It is one of the smallest in the solar system, however with time it can build a army rivaling the imperial countries of the old earth

Urgh, there's a part of me that really wants to do this, but on the other hand I'm worried I'll end up being too lazy to write anything.

Aside from that, tag!
Yugoslavia's back baby...

How the hell did this happen?
Well, this happened because after a failed attempt at a corporatocracy, Serbia was left with a pseudo-nationalist government which was incompetent to say the least. Following a revolution, a slightly authoritarian social democracy was established. More nations were incorporated as time went on. Now it's slightly-self sustaining and technologic advanced.

Argh, so since Ganymede's taken I'm a bit more tied to Titan than before :( what was the general idea you were thinking of? Any particular reasons you'd want Titan in particular?
