(Post-Fall) United Aquarian Systems
The United Aquarian Systems is a terran national state with its capitol world of Lorentis, in the Aquarius Cluster. The UAS rose from the ashes of the Old Federation, destroyed by the Aftershock in 4040 A.D, after a long and bloody war with an alien species known as the Illuvian Radacri. The transitionary governmment of the Terran Loyalist Alliance was resonpsible for the formation of the new state, with most of its government and leadership assuming roles in the new senate.
The UAS intends to restore terran order to the cluster and beyond, and bring about a new golden age of peace, prosperity and order for humanity into the 5th millenium and beyond. At the turn of the 45th century, Aquarius underwent a major political restructuring, with the former federation moving to a single, sovereign nation under a new flag: the Aquarian-Terran Imperial States. Despite this, the UAS exists under the new banner as a civilian governmental branch responsible for domestic affairs within Aquarius.
The UAS has a long and proud heritage as the dominant Terran lineage in the Aquarius Sector. Formed from the ashes of the Old Federation, the new Federation has learned from many of its ancestors mistakes. The modern United Aquarian Systems started with a very similar government and political structure to the Old Federation; a single unified government would govern a supranational organisation of multiple, smaller System States with their own devolved governments on a local scale. However, during the 44th and 45th centuries, the UAS moved to a more centralised government, with the Senate and Joint Presidential Council on Lorentis assuming more direct control of Aquarian Space. Eventually the new government would enact the Unification Protocol and authority would be given to a new flag, the Aquarian-Terran Imperial States, jointly lead by the Supranational organisation, Red Sector.
The new government has been compared to ancient politically right-wing conservative, nationalist and even authoritarian by some scholars, but nonetheless maintains peace and order throughout Aquarius.
At present, the UAS Civilian Government governs the domestic affairs of the Aquarian Core Systems, largely independent, but still under the shadow of the ATIS Council.
