The United Republic of Mars (German: Vereinigte Republik Mars) (Japanese: 火星連合共和国, Kasei Rengō kyōwakoku) (Spanish: República Unida de Marte) is a country ruling over Mars and the moons Phobos and Deimos.
Origin and Formation Edit
Space-fairing nations established colonies on Mars during the advent of space colonialis, with Mars being the strongpoint of a potential “Other Earth” that humanity could relocate to in the event of apocalyptic scenarios. Initially, the colonists considered themselves to be the ”Humanity’s Future” often transcending and crossing established colonial borders in order to show their dedication and commitment to the idea of a ”New Earth”
However, relations between Earth and Mars soon began to strain, with colonial nations reaping profits from Martian mines, while promised supplies and materials began to decrease dramatically. Eventually, the former colonists declared independence, and as the colonial nations lacked the resources to wage a interplanetary war, they reluctant accepted.
It is in the formation of these independent nations when Martians began to realise the need for a single planetary entity. Soon after, in 2145, the United Republic Of Mars was proclaimed by the leaders of a planetary organisation of massively influential nations on the planet, known as the United Mars Federal Association (Or UMFA). The URM later intergrated several “Outland” nations into it’s fold, and by the early 23rd Century, the URM‘s territory encompassed the entire planet.
