    In the year 2043, the 5 major world powers ( Britain, America, Russia, China, France) of the UN security council signed an official charter known as the Unification Proclamation. The Unification Proclamation officially established the government of the United Global Coalition. With the UGC formally established most countries forfeited their borders and sovereignty as individual nations. The process was painful and slow but eventually most countries had no choice but to be part of the Unified world we live in today.

    Unification hasn't really changed ordinary citizen's live much since that day in 2043. The class structure of society is still prevalent, the systems of a modern civilization has also remained unchanged. and culture continued evolving as it should. The Geopolitical landscape however has changed drastically oblivious to the ignorant. The currency has been standardized with electronic credits system already established under He-3 (UCSE stock name HE3). nano-chip identification has made security much easier and effective than previously.

    With the world finally under a unified rule, another major upheaval rippled through the world; The 2nd Renaissance. Technology development went into overdrive with advancements occurring every minute around the world as different countries shared their ingenuity freely (almost).

    Electronics advanced to such an extent that micro-chip technology has been stretched to it's limit. Experts predict that quantum computing should be feasible in about 8 months just to cope with the computing stress.

    Medical Science has also become much more accessible and more advanced. With the introduction of nano-technology into mainstream society, crippling diseases or chronic infections are merely minor irritations like scrapes or bruises. Diseases however did not disappear in fact the government even publicly announced that it was incubating existing diseases to preserve humanity's immunity. How thoughtful as surely nothing could be wrong with that.

    Nano-technology became integrated into everyday life almost, gone now is plastic surgery and botox replaced by a simple injection of nanites to alter facial complexions at far lower prices. This innovation completely decimated the beauty industry institutions but in context was a relatively trivial matter. Nanites also made their way into domestic life with robots which cleaned the carpet to some minor repair which again as before only bankrupted the vacuum industry and finally led to the extinction of brooms and mops.

    The most vital industry of all to the UGC was of course energy production and resource extraction. The primary energy source and lifeblood was Helium-3. This isotope of the inert element Helium is essential for nuclear fusion. Of course, other methods of power generation where also introduced such as tidal power with Pelmais, a sea serpent power generator unit tethered to the Atlantic Ocean exploiting the ocean's moody and violent temperament. Satellite bounced solar power is also widespread with the largest solar array on Hermes-5 a space station orbiting Mercury. Wind power is limited and geothermal power is still confined to tectonic hot-spots.

    The feasibility of nuclear fusion came to fruition with the introduction of Thermonuclear Helium Overdrive Reactors (T.H.O.R) some time in the 2060's.The design of the reactor was ingenious. THOR used multiple powerful photon lasers concentrated onto a single focal point by multiple centrifugal force mediators to increase core density and a high Higgs Boson concentration. THOR is able to use fuel more efficiently than previous fusion reactors. Also, since the process wasn't hampered by the need for cumbersome magnets to contain plasma the energy transfer was also more efficient and easier. The THOR could power vessels for at least half a century, was relatively affordable, and was compact with minimal maintenance and power loss.

    Since Helium-3 was in abundance and close proximity on the moon, major investments was poured into the construction of the Apollo colony, the greatest endeavor humans have ever attempted.

    At the same time a major technological innovation was being introduced. Known as the cerebral quantum thought wave transmitter by the development team who created it, It is officially known by it's common name: The Compliance Nexus.

    Developed and mass produced in 2056, the Mk-1 Compliance Nexus utilized the implanted microchips within all citizens to regulate the fundamental essence of rebellion, conflict, dissent itself: the mind. By utilizing advanced wave-dub technology, the Compliance Nexus was able to pacify the most violent mobs . This spire weathered all storms and quelled the tempest. But as with all technology, this one came at a cost. With the Compliance Nexus's power the government suddenly found little need for the military which were costly to maintain with little purpose in a unified world.

    The Advent of the Compliance Nexus almost decimated the military and the war industry as well.

    The GeoPolitical Landscape under the UGC

    The UGC is the sole government on Earth currently. Under its jurisdiction the world is now divided into 7 sectors.

    1. Earth-Central (former USA,Canada as well as Mexico.)
    2. Euro-Central (former France, Germany, and other European countries)
    3. Britannica ( former United Kingdom)
    4. Eurasia-Federation ( former Russia, Ukraine, Siberia, etc.)
    5. Asia-Federation (former China, Mongolia, Tibet, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Australia, Taiwan, Malaya, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea,and Japan.)
    6. United Africa (former Africa, Madagascar, India, Middle Eastern countries, Israel etc.)
    7. Central Americana (former South America)
  2. Well it is interesting but I think you took it too much in the thor part
  3. well i have a suggestion, use EDIT please, i got 3 alerts as you keep deleting and re posting

    My view on how the UGC would organize the geopolitical landscape please review and offer suggestions
