The Congress of Earth is a Parliamentary government formed primarily by the United Kingdom, Brazil, the United States of America, the Russian Federation, Japan, France, and the People's Republic of China on August 3rd, 2093, in which marked the end of the Third World War and the Martian Civil War. With its capital located within Zurich, Switzerland, the ruling seven countries unified the world through territorial expansion and social-economic reform. By the year 2095, colonization of Mercury, Venus, and the Asteroid belt was legalized for economic purposes, saving the Earth from draining its water supply by gathering small, icy rocks that contain it. On March 21st, 2096, Israel was saved from annexation by the world powers when it was able to gain power within the last empty seat of the Congress. By 2100, the government of Communist China was replaced by the Nationalist Republic of China (which it was exiled into Taiwan since December 1949). With Communism gone, Capitalism and Democratic-Socialism became the new political ideology of the planet as the two beliefs spread throughout colonized worlds of humanity. However, in 2110, alien readings from Tau Ceti had occurred, making rumors of a possible alien invasion. By 2123, strange attacks against the colonists on Mars emerged and forced Earth forces to retreat back to their homeworld. The result was the start of the War of the Gods, which resulted from the Alien takeover of Japan.
Its military force is modeled after the German Wehrmacht of the Second World War, but consists primarily of soldiers from Israel, Britain, France, India, Serbia, Albania, Iran, Greece, Turkey, Russia, America, Germany, Finland, Italy, China, Japan, Brazil, India, Mexico, and Norway. It is a multicultural power within the Sol System with English, French, Chinese, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian, Japanese, and Spanish as its main languages, while all others were banned during the establishment of the Congress of Earth. However, the language of Greek, as a form or resistance, demanded to become a minor member of the Congress and have a seat within the Congress, though t had no political power great enough to start its own expansion. Eventually, this helped preserved the ancient Greek culture and civilization from a radical change, thus recognizing its independence as a nation and its membership in the government. Turkey has also become a recognized member and minor power that has preserved its language and culture after ten years of unrest. By that time, India, Iran, Albania, and the resurrected Republic of Yugoslavia had soon joined and preserved their own heritage. The Unified German Republic was born when a German rebellion had erupted within occupied-German territories in France while Italy was given independence by the COE, needing a ninth member within the ruling council. The eighth and final country to ever be recognized as an independent nation and a minor member of the Congress was the Scandinavian Kingdom, a constitutional monarchy with Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, and Finnish as its main languages. Despite this, however, Finland decided to become its own nation. It is also confirmed that its leader, the President, requires a citizenship from either one of the nine ruling countries and be at least at age 35 in order to be elected into office. The economy is based on a Capitalistic-market economy that has thrived since the establishment of the Congress. This enables the nation into having a technological advancement and create settlements on colonized planets such as Mars in a quicker pace. However, though to the fact that they are at war, they spend most of their money on the war effort.
