Election for A-G

“So, from what I understand you’re the tie breaking vote?” Abril Valentina asked.

“Yes, but I will vote for the Union of Citizens candidate. She has some ambitious plans that will hopefully make the Union and its members more Democratic.” The Chinese representative said.

Abril eyed the Chinese delegate. She looked away and began tapping at her tablet.

“I'm sure you understand Ms. Valentina.” He said.

“Oh yes, and I’m sure your wife would be very understanding of your affair with one of your aides, correct?” Valentina gently handed her tablet over to the Chinese delegate.

He stood there shocked at the images. He was incredibly careful; he took every step and precaution he could to hide the affair. However, this “Astronaut” has images clear as day of them entering a sleazy hotel.

“How did you get these pictures?!” He said in a mix of confusion, shock, and anger rolled into one.

Abril Valentina laughed. “Senor do not think your affair is clever. You are not the first to have slept with an Aide, many politicians before you have done it. Many more after you will. So, rest assured senor that your affair was not all that hard to find out.” She said. She cracked a smirk. “However… Let us say that this tie breaking vote manages to, end in my favor.”

“Then you’ll get rid of the images…” He said.

“Magnifico! You’re getting the idea!” She said.

“And what if I just expose you?” He said.

Abril laughed at the notion of the idea. “Senor, you and I both know that since you were a child you dreamed of becoming the President of China. So, you are telling me you're willing to jeopardize all that, all because you didn't want to vote for a little old astronaut like me?”

The Chinese delegate swallowed hard. “Can I have your word that you’ll erase all traces of this affair?” He asked.

“I’ll do you one even better amigo; I'll personally help you cover it up. After all I understand the need to… unwind.”

The Chinese delegate stood up. “Abril… you drive a hard bargain. I will vote in your favor in the next election.” He said.

“Good mijo, now I have some important business to attend to. Hasta huevo” she said, waving to the delegate as she left the room.

2124 - 2134

1st Valentina Administration


Valentina.jpg

Abril Valentina in Office 2124

Following the Death of Nadera al-Shareef the UTA was torn as to who to choose for the new Administrative-General. In the Charter Nadera laid out that the leader should have no restrictions and should come from any background. The UTA would hold special elections and narrow down the candidates through debates. The candidates would debate to the General Assembly and from there the General Assembly would vote for each member. Eventually the vote would be narrowed down to four potential candidates. The Assembly was trapped in a tie, until the representative from China would break the stalemate by voting for Abril Valentina.

Abril Valentina was the most popular person alive. She would appear in numerous magazines and various shows and interviews which only added to her success. According to rumors Abril Valentina has also beaten down her opposition through bribes, blackmail and threats. These rumors are largely unfounded with no evidence pointing to this being the case. Abril used her fame, and her skills to earn the A-G seat, following her mandate of “Exploration, and Expansion”. Her plan is to radically expand the UTA’s role in space and Humanity as well. Upon taking the mantle of the A-G in her inaugural speech she vowed that she would place a permanent colony outside of the Sol System. Her first act upon becoming the Administrative-General was to officially name the Alpha Centauri system, the Nadera al-Shareef system. This act was widely supported and only led to the popularity of the new A-G.

20200823142430_1.jpg

Mining Station in Delta Pavonis Ibina Industries Station
While many called this plan ambitious, due to the lack of any habitable worlds to live on, the UTA nonetheless embraced their new A-G. Humanity would continue to push out into space and continue to survey more systems and planets. However, it seemed that with every star and every planet the galaxy would seem to be lonelier and lonelier. Humanity would come across more dead worlds, and more abandoned Yuht worlds. It was beginning to appear as if Humanity stood in a Galactic graveyard. Life seemed to be rarer than Humanity had thought. The colonies on Mars discovered minor signs of life like Earth around 400 million years ago, but nothing more complex than plant life or algae. Eventually Mars would have its core solidified and the planet would eventually kill all life on the world. The process as to how the core solidified on Mars was still unknown. Many Scientists from across various fields of study were convinced that studying how this happened could not only help prevent this from happening on Earth but could possibly reverse this and terraform the dead planet.

Eventually the elections for various positions in the UTA heads of organs would roll around. Abril Valentina during these elections would found the first ever National Coalition Party. The Peaceful Advancement Lobby was a Coalition of nations that banded together to ensure the UTA can better help facilitate Development, and to ensure that the UTA sticks to its peace mandate. In response the Coalition known as the Freedom Group would form a Coalition of nations that was focused on advancing the goals of freedom and egalitarianism within the UTA. Abril Valentina would become the head of the Coalition, and a Scientist of the ECW a Penelope Irwin would be the head of the Peaceful Advancement Lobby.

From the election the PAL would clench much of the Heads, with two heads being members of the PAL, and one being from the FG. Nicholas Clarke would become the new Speaker of the House, Jessica Grant would be the new Council Head, and Sunder Misa would be the new Supreme Judge. Following the elections Abril Valentina would propose a policy for the Space League to grant loans to any nation willing to explore and expand into space. The idea was widely supported, and all nations would vote in favor of it. Following its implementation many Stellar Corporations would vastly expand their space-based operations off these loans, leading to a rapid expansion of space territory.

20200730180003_1.jpg

Colony Ship En-Route to Amazonia
Eventually humanity would come across a habitable planet within the Delta Pavonis system. The planet was lush with Jungle and foliage, resembling a planet wide Amazon Rainforest. Followed by this was the discovery of a Cascadian world within the Cassaneta system. The discovery of these two planets caused a major bidding war between nations and corporations. The Kover-Samolet Corporation in cooperation with Aldrin Chartering had recently invented a massive ark-ship which it had used to bring a quarter of a million people to both the Moon and Mars and was willing to use it to transport Colonists to Habitable planets. The Jungle world’s bidding would be won by the Union of Citizens Accord, and the Cascadian world bidding would be won by the European Commonwealth. Both the Kover-Samolet Corporation and Aldrin Chartering would see a massive explosion of market share as a result of this seeing its stock increase nearly tenfold. This was in many media outlets being referred to as “The Age of the Space Corporation”. However, the expansion of Space Corporations would lead to a planet wide Economic boom never seen.

As these developments were panning out, sudden anomalies were detected by the AFEV Medupe. These anomalies when further investigated shocked the world. The signals the Medupe was detecting were not just radiological phenomena but were language patterns. When word of these reached the Administrative General's office, she would immediately call on Humanities top linguists to begin deciphering the language. The Language was tricky to decipher, but the linguists were able to identify that this was in fact a language from an alien civilization. After nearly a year of constant deciphering and understanding eventually they cracked the language patterns. The Space League would meet up in a highly publicized mission where they would send a signal to the area from where they picked up the signal. The Signal was a simple message in the language “We are Aliens, we come in peace.” The response took a while, but soon the Space League would be bombarded with signals from the area and the mission was a success. The UTA had discovered intelligent life.

20200730180427_1.jpg

Gastrakite Parliament
Eventually through much talking back and forth the UTA was able to discover more about this Alien civilization. The members of the civilization were a race of Lithoid aliens known as Gastrakite. The Gastrakite had organized themselves in a similar manner to humanity. Their government was a supranational organization but was organized to help their species explore and expand throughout the Cosmos. Their language was similar to Sumerian Script but had various differences according to various ethnicities and cultures. The existence of Lithoid beings however came as a bit of a shock to the Human scientific community, as many were expecting more… biological species. The Gastrakites were different to humans in various ways, such as their longer-lived life, their stronger physics, and their ability to seemingly live in any environment with minimal discomfort. The UTA began a mission of peace and discovery between the two species with hopes of the mission being long-term.

Abril Valentina would see her first term come to an end, and the Elections for A-G would start. Her administration was slated to end after a September poll projected the A-G to lose to the PAL candidate Penelope Irwin. In surprise to much of the public, Abril Valentina would win the elections and prepare herself for her second Administration.

Well, corruption is a part of any kind of politics...

The Gastrakites call themselves aliens? That's weird.

A friendly extraterrestrial species is good. An alliance isn't looking so difficult.

State of the Union
Great Plains Republic
Following the victory of Sam Leon in the Kingdom of New Heaven and his subsequent restructuring of the KNH and the Church of Revelations, the work would be a harsh endeavour for various reasons. The Newly formed Great Plains Republic would be forced for nearly a decade to be deployed across the nation to fight Guerilla fighters still left overs from the Rayist forces. Under Sam Leon he would institute the GPR under a form of Secularism that would completely split the State and Religion. Political Cartoons of the time portray the GPR undergoing surgery with the Church of Revelations being removed like a tumor with Sam Leon being the doctor.

However Sam Leon was not against the church or its ideals. Most Churches and religious buildings that were damaged during the Final World War and the Civil war would actually be repaired and rebuilt to their original structure. Sam Leon’s reforms would force Churches to pay state taxes, enshrine in the constitution the separation of Church and state, the State Judicial Branch the powers to ensure the constitution is followed and not abused, and the legal powers of the Army to overthrow the State Government if they threaten the Constitution. Many call these moves radical, but when Sam Leon was pressed on these matters he explained that

“Religion is still strong in the minds of our people. We have to make sure that the awful spectre of the Kingdom of New Heaven doesn't come back or make a resurgence.”

Other changes within the Great Plains Republic would rename states, places, and more that have religious backgrounds to other names that have non-religious backgrounds. Early on in Leons reforms many had tossed the idea of a unification between the KNH and the NANR, but Leon shot down the idea. Leon was not against the idea of unification, but had said that the NANR and the GPR was not ready for Unification.As for the Church of Revelations, the former priests of the Church would be tried and executed for various crimes they have committed such as the declaration of Martial Law and the demands for Martial Law under the Final World War. The priests that were replaced in their stead were less radical and would interpret the Bible in a much more egalitarian approach. The new religion which once vilified “apostates'' or “heretics'' now was more tolerant towards those outside of the Church's faith and doctrines.

The Rise of the “Space Corps”
Throughout the early days of space travel, and onward Corporations have begun to see a notable rise in power and influence across Human society. The “Space Corps” as they are nicknamed, have rapidly allowed Humanity to expand across space and vastly see an Economic explosion never before seen. Across Earth and her colonies Human life has seen a notable rise in quality of life and wealth income. While there are numerous Space Corps, there are only a few that have managed to come out on top and emerge as the most powerful Corporations in their regions and in Human Society.

The more prominent Megacorporations are:

2nd Valentina Administration


Martians gathered in the assembly hall. It was small room usually held for small weddings or similar gatherings, but in this case was the Assembly hall for the “Martian Workers Committee”. The workers gathered came from all walks of life such as Mining, or to the more elaborate and prestigious Terraforming Engineers. They were gathered to discuss the future for Mars and had been gathering for quite some time.

“Now I have been working with representatives in the Freedom Group and they are working on a proposal that should result in our planet becoming independent. It will take some time, as it will be a staggered process however I and other members of the committee believe this is the best way to gain our independence.” The Committee Speaker Jemal Arfu said.

The Assembly hall clapped and some cheered. Others were slightly disgruntled. Few in the group held radical ideals about Martian independence, and many of them groaned when they heard the words “Staggered Process”. Many Martians believed that the Neo-Colonialism that existed couldn’t be bargained with. A member of the Radical group spoke out in protest.

“Staggered process? What makes you think that this will be followed through? While they are sitting there debating and arguing we have more corporations and nations sucking out our resources and are getting rich themselves! Colonizers cannot be argued with or bargained with! The only way we can gain our independence is if we fight for it ourselves!” This last part earned a few claps and cheers from the radicals and some murmurs from other members. Jemal couldn’t make out what they were saying but he caught the gist of it when he heard the words “He’s Got a point” muttered.

Jemal Arfu spoke up “The representative from the Freedom Group that spoke with me has said that they are working with the PAL members and other people who have colonial possessions. We must work on this nice and steady, as it is the best course of action. Also, if you have been following the news you would have noticed that other habitable planets have been discovered. The Many nations that hold colonial control over Mars from what I have heard are more interested in expanding there. The cost of expanding in Mars to them is seen as too expensive. Which means that once we have worked out an agreement for decolonization, it can happen, and we Martians will be left to craft our own paradise.”

The members of the Martian Workers Committee all clapped at this and the disgruntled Martians simply sat back down in silence.

“Now let’s move unto the next topic-”

*******

Abril Valentina was laughing after reading the article in front of her. She was not laughing because of anything written. She was laughing at how such an amazing opportunity to get rid of that thorn in her side the “PAL” had just been presented to her on a silver platter. She knew that if she managed to turn this into a political issue and use it as a driving wedge, she could flip enough nations from the PAL to ensure a nice majority over them.

She immediately pulled out her tablet and began rapid fire typing away at her proposal. She had carefully crafted the proposal in such a way that it would make the Freedom Group dig its heels in on the proposal and cause nations that were sympathetic to the “Colonial Plight” to switch sides. She didn’t put too much effort into it however, because she didn’t need it to pass, she needed it for herself. After a few minutes she refined her proposal and then sat back at her result.

“This is beautiful.” She said to herself out loud.

She saved the file in her secure server until she could bring this proposal up in the next General Assembly Meeting.

She sat back calmly. Pulling back up the newspaper article she felt a tinge of sympathy for them. She laughed this off and said to herself “Maybe some other time.”

2134 – 2144

2nd Valentina Administration


The Rise of Planetism
On the off-world colonies of Earth a new movement was beginning to surge across both Luna and Mars. The movement was named “Planetism”. The term was coined a news outlet as a play on the word “Nationalism”. The seeds of Planetism has multiple origins, but the seed that would ultimately kick start Planetism came from before the Final World War. When the nations of the Earth agreed to not carry out any fighting to the off-world colonies the planets of Mars and Luna would experience a movement of unity. Due to the low gravity on both planets, Colonists were exempt from conscriptions and drafts.

While there were some colonists that experienced animosity towards each other, the animosity never grew past spirited rivalries in competitive sports. As the years continued and the planets of Luna and Mars were being overlooked in favor of planets that already had habitable planets and atmospheres. This overlooking leads many colonists to believe they were on their own and stopped relying on their home nations and started relying on their local planetary government. By the year 2133 the first movements for planetary sovereignty would begin in full swing. This came to the attention of the Union of Territories and would become a major sticking point for the Freedom Group.

The Off-World Sovereignty Proposal
The Freedom Group would work on the matter delicately and working to pass proposals to eventually pull out the colonists from the planets, when Abril Valentina would circumvent them by introducing the “Off-World Sovereignty” proposal. In the proposal it called for a 10-year deadline for all nations to relinquish Martian and Lunar colonial control. This proposal was controversial in the General Assembly with the vote failing. The fallout from the failed proposal resulted in the PAL fracturing. Some nations would leave the PAL and either join the Freedom Group or would go off to form a new Coalition called “The Committee of High Technology”.

ElectionChart.png

Results of the Off-World Sovereignty Proposal
The newly formed committee of High Technology was a Coalition of Nations that believed that the UTA should focus on technological progression and advancement. They believed this to be important citing the need for Terraforming on Luna and Mars, and the need to repair the extensive damage to not only the planet earth but on the Human Genome. On Mars and Luna, the failed proposal resulted in waves of demonstrations and protests across the planet calling to an end to the colonization of the planet.

Some voices doubted the motives behind the proposal believing it to be a political stunt to break up much of the PAL and to strengthen her political party. Abril Valentina would dismiss these allegations. However when protests were brought to her attention she either ignored them or fell silent on the matter. By the time the dust settled the Freedom Group held a comfortable 50% majority in the government, and the opposition parties held grudges over various views. The Internal body elections would support this change as Nicholas Clarke lost his seat as a supreme judge to the Free Communes of India Representative Sunder Misa.

Terraforming Breakthroughs and L-Gate
Scientific crews had begun experimenting with various techniques to terraform various planets across the cosmos. They began using crude methods such as melting the Polar Ice Caps of worlds, throwing meteors at planets, and many more. These methods of terraforming made major strides in the field of Terraforming, and many scientific communities began to come up with working plans on how to terraform planets with pre-existing atmospheres and biomes into habitable planets for Human life.

As the AEFV Medupe was exploring uncharted space, they would come across a bizarre construction never seen. It was a massive stellar construction that had been defunct and abandoned for untold millennia. The age of the construction was unknown, but carbon dating of various parts of the construction showed that this was built and used before Earth had a breathable atmosphere. Its discovery came from the size of the station having its own gravitational pull that exploration teams were able to detect. While the gravitational pull was minimal, it was still noticeable enough to cause an anomaly in Gravitational Sensors and readings. After a brief investigation of the Stations computer systems they were able to decipher that the station at one point could create a Stable wormhole, which allowed for near instantaneous teleportation to wherever another station was built. As of now the station lay dormant and inactive, with multiple attempts to activate the gate failing.

Building Bridges
During the Valentina Administration she would increase cooperation with the alien race known as the Gastrakites and would sign a number of agreements and proposal between the two nations such as the Human-Gastrakite Pact which guaranteed that Human Nations would not go to war with Gastrakite nations and vice versa. Human corporations began branching out into Gastrakite space and vice versa, Scientific teams would initiate the first ever cross-species experiments. These experiments not only improved humanities understanding of the Gastrakites but also of Humanity. Culture was exchanged between the two and slowly both the Gastrakites and Humans became closer and closer, bridging the Cross-Species gap between the two.

Primitives, Civilized
A big shock came to the Scientific community following the study of a planet within the Ranque system. A scientific Survey team was able to discover a civilization of sapient creatures on a world, and head a advanced medieval era society. This discovery caused a massive debate within the General Assembly over what to do over this discovery. The CHT argued that watching a society progress would help humanity better understand its own history and paths. Members within the Freedom Group argued that agents from the UTA should subtly influence their society for the betterment of the species on the world. More radical voices argued that in order to ensure their species survives that Humanity help the species ascend to become a space-faring civilization. Abril Valentina following her Exploration and Expansion mandate decided it would be best to observe the civilization for the time being.

Colonists on the ECW colony of New Troy discovered a Species of Aliens that had a form of Sapience. Scientific teams were able to discover that these said species had begun very primitive and basic usage of tools and verbal communication similar to Stone Age Era Man. While the UTA was about to intervene based on this discovery the colonial planet of New Troy fully belonged to the ECW and told the General Assembly that any decision involving the Sapients in New troy would fall exclusively under ECW jurisdiction. The Pre-sapients would be rounded up and placed on a different continent from where the colonists settled so that Scientific teams could watch the species grow and evolve overtime. The Teams would also subtly nudge their development so that their observations would not last millennia.

2nd Contact
On the other far edge of UTA space the Space League would discover another similar FTL Capable civilization. The Civilization was the Warrior Clans of Abdarganos, and they were a loosely held together confederation of Warrior Clans all unified under the Imperator. Their governance was built from the legacy of a great Khan who unified their planet in a campaign of unending war. After conquering the clans, he would lead them with a fair and firm hand and their dynasty would eventually lead to this species reaching out into space. The Warrior Clans are Aggressive at best, and War-like at their worst. Space League officials have extended outreach programs to the warrior clans and have managed to keep good relations with the Abdarganos Imperator. In turn Abdarganos believe humanity to be a mighty species in the galactic stage, finding their long history of warfare admirable and their survival from a nuclear Armageddon to be an impressive achievement. While back on earth any talk like this is bound to draw the Eyre of anyone to hear you within ear shot, UTA diplomats were not quick to correct Abdarganos for fear that they would want to test humanities mettle should they be too “Soft”.

Election
When it came time for the 5th UTA elections Abril Valentina would steal the vote with a comfortable majority. She would be elected for a 3rd time as the A-G. She would continue her mandate of Expansion and exploration of the cosmos, and many strongly support her mandate and generally look at her as a good guide for the future of Humanity. Just like many things, only time will tell what the future lies for humanity.
