"Why die now, when you can live to fight on?" -Vichael Gregourii
After evacuation from what used to be USC territory, the remaining few USC citizens and military personnel travelled in cryostatsis for 50 years before arriving in the current galaxy, dubbed 'The Shadow Galaxy' by USCC scholars, since no name has been officially stated.
While hopes are high for building relations with other governments, actual relations have been few and far between, coming out of a recent... skirmish with the UNSC, the USCC came out the victor, with the UNSC disappearing in the blink of an eye.
The USCC government has been watching far off places, to be wary of their surroundings, it seems that war may be looming in the galaxy, to which the USCC shall remain neutral towards both sides, unless provoked by one party, the other shall reap the benefits
Government of the USCCEdit
The United Space Command Continuum is a Democratic Republic, with war based economy, The basic rights of any registered citizen, or any other 'non citizen' (process takes about a month after a planet or state joins the USCC) is guaranteed for life or unless there was a coup overthrowing the current government, (This is similar to the Bill of Rights but it actually works), the freedom of the press is limited during war time, some editing may apply to issues that are not internal (external affairs, but including the Minbar issue). Subjugation, Discrimination, or Sub-Servitude of any given species or race may result in a fine, a prison sentence or death (depending on what happens)
Assaulting or killing foreign tourists/traders/representatives, no matter on how they act or say, is not tolerated and will result in a prison sentence or death, matters on the foreign tourists/traders/representatives can be taken up with the department of economics and trade or a local foreign embassy.
Supreme Commander - Vicheal Gregourii Vice Supreme Commander - Breanna Tuirer Commandant of Defense - Xavier Willinston (Head of Military Counsel) Secretary of Economics and Trade - Nigeal Asiur Secretary of Transportation - Andria Qurtia
I cannot remember the full list, so the top 5 were chosen
Head Speaker - Katie Tomack
Central Congress - 2 Senators for individual states on planets, population of the whole planet determines the number of Representatives
No major parties allowed, but the elections are based on agendas, whether, conservative, liberal, war, peace, etc...
Each planet have a 'localized' government, that answers to the main government to matters other than its own (excluding disasters or war time issues), the planets have their local trade systems corresponding to USCC Federal Regulations, they fund their own SDAF, control taxes per planet (unless the USCC Federal Govt. wishes to negotiate)
Central Courts - 11 judges, majority vote among them decides the fate of the person or subject at hand
Note: If there is any type of 'corruption' or anything due to companies giving 'benefits' to a politician, they and the company will proceed to a hearing, may or may not face prison sentencing or removal of all powers within the government system.
The USCC Military is a multi-military type force
There are two levels of military, one is the whole USCC military, and there is the local planetary defense armies
USCC Navy - Planetary and Space USCC Air Force - Planetary Only USCC Marine Corps - Planetary and Space USCC National Guard - Planetary Only
Each planet have 'Self Defense Armed Forces' that help out the USCC military, but are usually made up with the citizens of that planet, the SDAF are funded by the local planet's government, but loans are available for funding, the SDAF only answer to the USCC Supreme Commander, Vice Supreme Commander, and the Commandant of Defense on the 'Interplanetary' level, but are parallel to USCC Interplanetary Functions, meaning if the main USCC military have a base on the planet, they won't interfere with the SDAF base unless ordered to merge or support each other.
SDAF is only a ground type force, they have air units but no space traveling units.
