Earth.

In 2020, seeing the end of civilized life with depleting resources and increased global tensions, the major countries in the world formed the United Nations for Space Colonization. The greatest scientific minds of rocket engineering and space colonization were no longer ignored and set aside. Within a year, an advanced space ship like none other was launched into space. A fleet of them, in fact. Space ships Washingon, London, Moscow, Beijing, Tokyo, San Paulo, and Berlin. Their mission was Mars. Within 2 days they had landed near the polar ice caps. These unmanned space ships released fleets of drones. But they were not meant for exploration. They began to build. It was a project that was to take a year of delicate work, if this prototype city could be made, there was still hope for humanity.

Or was there?

Less then 5 years later, the middle eastern conflict escalated when a nuclear exchange occurred between Israel, Iran, India, and Pakistan. The world was shook by this politically, and ecologically. Radioactive fallout was blown all over the world, and people were getting sick. The world spiraled downward into a panic. The UNSC continued despite this, and tensions began to be strained. The nations didn't seem so friendly anymore, but the work continued. But, ironically, it wasn't the Mars Project that saved Earth. It was a deep space probe launched years ago. It detected an asteroid of an unknown metal composition flying past it. Interested, the UNSC sent a manned ship to investigate. Upon nearing it, they saw the wreck of a space ship. But it was not in any way human. When reporting this back to UNSC, they couldn't believe it.

A project was instantly initiated to recover the space wreck. People around the world were torn by this discovery. This meant that we were not the only forms of life in the universe. Religious extremists claiming that the UNSC was using lies to get money and influence began to turn their own to riot. People rioted in the streets, raving mad from anything ranging from Illuminati conspiracy theories to simply how terrible the quality of their lives were.

The U.S. and Russian government, upon recovery of the craft, both admitted that they had already "collected" such extra-terrestrial crafts. The U.S. Government held them in Area 51 for re-engineering, and the Russians in a post-soviet lab in Siberia for the same purpose. This further angered more people, specifically their own citizens. But both countries stated that they were coming very close with the work done in the UNSC.

This craft was the most intact of any the Americans and the Russians had taken. And within 2 years, the reverse engineering was complete. The UNS-Mars was completed. It was the size of a freighter, with VTOL capabilities. It could move faster than any space craft ever made. And most important: It had a prototype faster-than-light mode. The one problem: The fuel for it. The nuclear generator took up 40% of the ship. It was inefficient. But it was their only option. On the UNS-Mars' maiden voyage, the FTL travel was successful. They went to the nearest star in little under a month.

But while navigating through an asteroid field, they saw another astonishing thing. It was a large asteroid, maybe a 4th the size of our moon. It was laden with what seemed to be extractors. They seemed to be unmoving and abandoned. And when the UNS-Mars began to investigate more large asteroids, they found the same thing. The Captain of the Mars sent a probe to investigate the composition of the asteroids, and it brought back an unknown sample of yellow rock. After seeing the footage of the extractors and looking at the composition of the rock, the scientist observing it said,"My God. It's fuel. It's a fuel!"

The UNSC deduced that whoever left those extractors there mined what they thought was enough, but that the humans could make do with the smaller asteroids. In 2030, the raw material was made into a fuel substance, which was dubbed "The philosopher's stone". The UNS-Mars II, a copy of the Mars only with an outfitted generator for the fuel. It was much more efficient than nuclear power, and there were projects around the world to make large generators outfitted for this fuel. But earth would not have it.

The earth was dying at this point. The amazon was nearly gone and the world temperature was rising drastically. Flooding in coastal areas became widespread due to the polar ice caps melting. Weather kept getting more and more deadly. Nations began to collapse, and the UNSC made one project. The evacuation of earth. They'd devised it as a back up plan years ago, but with the fuel it would be possible.

The earth began major evacuations, large ships made passes back and forth from mars to the major world capitals. There the original leaders of the nations and their citizens huddled in the successful building of the Mars colonies. It barely supported 500,000 million people. There the leaders of the old world signed a doctrine, Ordo Novus Spepare, reading that balkinization was allowed and encouraged. Now that humanity has payed the final price for reaching the stars, the Ordo Novus Spepare bans any and all political ties and historical events from earth to influence current political relations. Mars saw many little colony expeditions in the next few decades, and the sad people of Earth looked to the stars for their salvation. And so from Mars comes the many confederacies, republics, and city-states of the humans that lie in Dominion today.

done. yeah it's not that original and i didn't put much effort but hey, now we have a basic lore for any and all human nations to base themselves off of!
