The War Itself

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Redred33mer on Sat Feb 09, 2013 3:05 am

This thread is supposed to offer a greater depth as to what the war is. Again, use the auto-generated topic for discussion and questions, or PM's.

Why? Why the war - what does the half billion lost lives insofar supposed to mean? Only the Kainists want to fight this war now, everyone else would much rather drop their weapons if it wasn't at the expense of their freedom, being controlled by some elites in the Kainists' capitol of Khyranus.

The Statehood of Kainist Democracy (SKD or the Statehood). Kainist Democracy focuses on that of the redistribution of wealth and material. It doesn't matter how hard you work, you will be rewarded nearly the same. This small disparity in wage earnings is to lessen social tensions between the people; it reduces envy. They also believe that there is a fixed amount of wealth in the world per capita. This Statehood has grown to encompass about a dozen plants including colonies. Many find themselves to be happier, however, many in this society also brood hatred for foreign tourists. Tourists are seen to have high income value, and are seen as greedy exploiters who hoard wealth. SKD citizens brood over this; it is against their very core beliefs and they hate it, it goes back to envy. They brood over that someone would rob others of wealth. In fact, groups of tourists from Earth, Wiesenthal, and Inari have been attacked in public, and 12 are dead from such civil tension.

Earth, Wiesenthal, Inari, and a half dozen other planets fall under something called the Unified Planetary Armed Forces (UPAF or Planetary Union). The UPAF is a collection of independent planetary governments that have joined under a single banner. Each planet has its own smaller, individual military to protect its own planet, however, they do not have the power to declare war by themselves, and if they do, the UPAF will hunt that planet's government down in either a court of law or with military force if necessary, and reshape it so that such defiance will not happen again. Basically, these 9 planets have opted to share a military to protect each other's interests. Representatives or the heads of state must agree with a simple majority to go to war, and seeing as the SKD has turned down any friendly gesture of peace or settlement from the UPAF, the Planetary Union had about 3 years ago, declared war on the Statehood as a result of their civilian casualties.

There are nine total planets in the Planetary Union:

Earth (An urbanized commerce center, Earth is vital to the UPAF - Sol System)
Mars (Uses subterranean dwellings primarily, good raw material mining location - Sol System)
Inari (Primarily frozen wastelands, but has high crystal and mineral content with sparse cities - Stais System)
Wiesenthal (Much like Earth, has a variety of climates and resources - Stais System)
Kieron (Dry, not much water content, but not exactly a desert and has valuable raw materials - Pirigo System)
Veirun (Is the epitome of deserts and oases and is trademarked by its spaceports - Rhys System)
Ardain (Has incredibly fertile lands and is littered with tropical climates - Rhys system)
Feira (Is more temperate and is becoming increasingly urbanized, it brings great commerce - Leir System)
Zhark (Is incredibly stormy. Has vast deposits of an underground crystal called Tyanide, used in UPAF research - N2 System)

Along with these political entities, a terrorist organization, the Universal Redemption Military (URM, often called "Urmies") has been around preaching for the return of a morally superior government to arrive to the planets of the UPAF and create a more whole people. UPAF databases do not clerly articulate what the world could look like if the URM were to succeed; no one outside of the Urmies really know. The URM now are being supported by the Statehood, and contribute to causing riots on the internal structures of the Planetary Union.

The Omega Division is the prize of the Planetary Union's efforts. This division is particularly renowned for its high success rate under the most adverse of conditions. Now, the Omega Division, in groups of about 100, will land 4,000 troops on the planet Khyranus, which is the capitol of the SKD. From there, each strike force will coordinate ambushes, raids, assaults, defenses, and disrupt the enemy officials will think will cause a break on frontline planets. The strike forces will not be withdrawn unless notified otherwise.
