Political Parties

The Social Democrat (Socdem) party bloc is comprised primarily of Communist and socialist factions, and is further splintered among Marxists, Titoists, and nationalist Communist blocs. This coalition was formed in order to present a united front and a potentially more influential vote on key matters coming before Parliament, despite bad blood among different types of socialists and Communists over the last several decades worldwide.

The Leftist party bloc is comprised primarily of political liberals who favor tight government control and regulations over industry and the economy and little to no government regulation of civil liberties or personal freedoms, such as defining marriage, outlawing substances like marijuana, or prohibiting abortion or birth control. They generally oppose the presence of a standing army, offensive strategies, and large portions of the budget going to national defense.

The Center-Leftists favor government regulations of industry and oppose regulations on personal freedoms, but also tend to support national defense measures, including increasing the size of the military and its budget. This coalition was formed by disgruntled would-be Leftists or Centrists who felt that they did not quite belong in either party.

The Centrists favor moderation in all affairs, including minimal regulations on industry to prevent abuses like child labor or unfair wages, and limiting abortion to the first term of pregnancy. They tend to favor a large defensive military force, little government spending, and focus primarily on domestic affairs, while encouraging the formation of trading partnerships with other nations.

The Center-Rightists oppose all but the most minimal regulations on industry, and generally support measures to limit the availability of abortion, better globalize culture, and create laws to address moral issues. They favor a large military with both defensive and offensive capabilities, and increasing spending on the military and national defense. Hon. Rubano Malijin is the party leader.

The Rightists oppose nearly all regulations on industry, and often clamor for laws to address moral issues, force assimilation of immigrants, and encourage globalization of Western culture, particularly in Asia and Africa. They favor strong national defense policy, and a military that focuses on offensive capabilities while establishing strong defensive supports.

The Libertarian-Conservatives (Libcons) oppose all government regulations of industry or the economy, as well as any laws addressing moral issues, which they see as matters of personal choice. They also favor a strong national defense and the formation of a distinctly Terran identity. Current majority party. Prime Minister Edward M. Cranford is the party leader.

They are -- Canada, Quebec, America, Mesoamerica, Caribbea, Cono Sur, Andea, Guayana, Arabia, Anatolia, African Maghreb, Niger-Congo, Bantua, Sudan, Sahel, Sahara, Kalahari, South Asia, Caucasus, Khorasan, Mekong, Russia, Balkan Peninsula, Iberia, Apennine Peninsula, Scandinavia, British Isles, Benelux, Alemania, Pacific Islands, and Antartica. Most of these semi-autonomous regions also allow for some extent of semi-autonomous tribal rule by indigenous peoples, particularly ethnic minorities.


Unification:
Tripartite

The Terran Armed Forces
Headquarters - Fort Veritas

BRANCHES
Terran Naval Command (includes space-capable vessels)
Terran Air Command (includes atmospheric vessels, planes, helicopters)
Terran Defence Command (ground troops, artillery, tanks, helicopters, and such things)
Terran Marine Command (sea-ships and oceanic installations)
Terran Directorate of Military Intelligence (pretty much what the name says)

Other than TDMI, each branch has reservists in addition to active-duty members. Each branch other than TDMI also has its own special forces. There are about 2,000,000 Terran soldiers on active duty. The smallest branch of the TAF is the TNC, which has, I think, two capital ships and something like less than ten smaller battleships or cruisers, all older models lacking most of the recent advanced technology. I have not broken down the numbers into specifics of how many soldiers in each branch.

CHAIN OF COMMAND
Prime Minister (Edward M. Cranford)
Minister of Defence (Farabundo Guzman)
Grand General (Prachai Ranida)
General / Branch Commander (ex. the deceased Bailey Wurzman)
Lieutenant General
Major General
Admiral (ex. Fatih Sayilgan)
Captain
Commander
Major
Lieutenant
Ensign
Sergeant
Corporal
Private

There are also regional militias comprised of local volunteers under separate but subordinate command from the central command. Terran soldiers, particularly those deployed to space, are often referred to as Marines.
