United Earth

United Earth is the name of the planetary state created through the unification of Earth in the 22nd century following First Contact in 2063. United Earth continued to exist as a political subdivision of the United Federation of Planets when its government helped found that interstellar state in 2161.

Territory

By the 2150s, the United Earth government was coterminous with all major settlements made by humanity. This included all territory on Earth itself after all previous human governments united into one organization. United Earth controlled all of the Sol system, but in the 2150s, they had begun to spread to other nearby star systems. Humanity's spread beyond the Sol system, however, had been largely hindered by their stronger Vulcan allies for the past half century, as they did not feel that Humans were strong enough to face the many threats beyond their home star system.

Planetary bodies that had major Human settlements or military installations on them in the 2150s included:

In the Sol system:

  • Earth
    • Luna - Lunar colonies
  • Mars - Martian colonies
  • Several bases and mining installations in the asteroid belt
  • "Jupiter Station" is apparently a military drydock/repair facility in orbit around the gas giant Jupiter
  • Titan is used for hazardous environment training by Starfleet, though it is unclear if there are any permanent bases or installations on the moon of Saturn, or if away teams are simply dropped off for training

In other solar systems:


In the first half of the 22nd century, the most significant Human presence in space beyond the Sol system itself was in the form of "Boomers", independent Human traders that formed a merchant marine using crude, generationally-owned starships that took years to travel between destinations. While nominally under the control of the Earth Cargo Authority, by their very nature, the Boomers were frontiersmen without any real oversight from Earth and generally handled their own affairs. In a sense, these small (approximately two dozen crewmen on the common Y freighter) and mobile ship-borne communities could be seen as "colonies" of a sort. During the second half of the 22nd century, as faster warp drives became more commercially available, travel time between destinations was cut down from years to months or weeks, and response by official United Earth Starfleet ships was for the first time made a practical reality, the independent frontier lifestyle of the Boomers gradually came to an end.

Structure

United Earth was the planetary state represented in the Coalition of Planets and later the United Federation of Planets. Government officials included Ministers.

Even after United Earth was formed, many nation-states and confederations retained their individual identities. This included the African Confederation, Canada, the European Alliance, Soviet Union and the United States of America.

United Earth had many agencies. This included the early form of Starfleet (prior to 2161), Military Assault Command Operations (MACO), the United Earth Space Probe Agency, and the United Earth Diplomatic Corps, which was responsible, among other things, for running the United Earth Embassy on Vulcan during the 22nd century.

History

The name "United Earth" was used as early as 2067 for the United Earth Space Probe Agency.

By 2079, all "United Earth nonsense" was abolished in the post-atomic horror, at least in some areas of the planet.

The activities of the European Hegemony, which existed in the 2120s, would lead to the formation of United Earth.

In 2150, the last of Earth's nations joined United Earth, making it truly global. This may or may not be Australia

Minister Nathan Samuels represented United Earth at talks for the Coalition of Planets in 2155.
