The United Alliance, sometimes called the Alliance and abbreviated as T.U.A. or U.A., is a human nation originating in the Lewis Galaxy and thus known as one of the Lewis Nations. The Capital of the Nation is Located in the Planet Kreon, an Ecumenopolis with several human and Alien species living together on the planet. This nation is made of the union of several planets and systems to form a cohesive democratic institution. Each planet is somehow free to organise itself in the matter that they please but have to send representatives to the Parliament of the Alliance responsible from ruling internal affairs, international affairs, economy, trading, military and security as well as other issues. Its government could be said to be between a Federation and a Confederacy.
The Alliance was created when colonist from the Lewis Federation started to settled on the Jord Nebulae, a rich mineral area, far from the Human nation's core and on the border of Federal territory. Not far also lie several Alien Nations. The Nebulae was hard to reach and colonist were pretty much isolated from their home nation. Soon, changes on taxes and on mineral products and other basic resources for the regional colonies started a revolution between the planets of the area and their Nation. Many Alien and Human planets in the Region revolted and soon, had to reach an alliance between themselves to create a military force capable of defending them. A small army of the Federation came to put end on the revolt, but they couldn't get well through the Nebulae Since they didn't knew the local area as well as the inhabitants, and they were easily assaulted and defeated. Other fleets arrived but the recently created Alliance had total control and knowledge of the region while the national forces didnt, what ended on massives defeats for the Federation. Soon, it had to acknowledge the Independence of the Planets in this Nebulae.
The foundation of the United Alliance starts with the arrival of settlers from the Federation Worlds into the Jord Nebulae. The area was rich in minerals and other valuable resources, so the Federation had interest in colonizing it, and soon financed the colonization of the Nebulae.
Many of the Planets were sparsely populated and due to its distance from the core, the areas was a hub for some piracy and smuggling activities. The Federation Law was unable to act properly and soon, the local authorities had to operate in a self autonomy state and the region adopted its own distinct dialect and culture.
In 102,497 CE, the Federation rose taxes and manipulated prices for mining resources to increase its revenue, which hit harly on the Jord Nebulae, making the exports of the region (the main source of income) less competitive and available to buyers. This strike riots and revolts on the region, with higher degrees of criminal activity. This differences on interests grew to more tensions between the planets of the region and the Federation. This led to the unilateral declaration of Independence on 102 520 CE. All the Planets signed a Cooperation and Alliance agreement, out of the hate for the Federation. Still, this declaration of independence was not recognize by the Federation or other nations in the Galaxy and beyond. The Federation tried to bring the Alliance back into the nation, leading a navy into the Jord Nebulae. The navy had little knowledge of the region, while the local people new the area pretty well. This proved to be an advantage and the smaller Alliance fleet was able to defeat the Federation. Soon, other Federation fleets followed with same disastrous results. The Planets of the Nebulae which had valuable resources were lost for the Federation. This planets also refused to give aid to Federal armies and navies, even assaulting and attacking them from the surface. The Guerrilla and firm opposition from the local population to the Federation, made it an area imposible to handle. This force the Federation to acknowledge their defeat. Peace was signed in Kreon, and the new nation was recognised by the Federation. The Official declaration of Independence and birth of the Nation was signed in 102,565 CE.
Shortly, the nation was named "The Alliance of Mining Worlds", but very soon, when expansion outside the nebulae started, the name was changed into The United Alliance. Each planet had its own independence and own local government body, with a national joint policy, that has become more federal by the years.
The Alliance defended the interest of the independent planets without absorbing them in a single language or culture or imposing them some local laws. The Alliance only rules above some aspects, like immigration (internal and external), the economy and taxes, the civil rights rule etc... with each member having negotiation power on its own with the government and the other nations (although supervised by the Alliance upper government), as it has the opportunity to split from the Alliance if it wishes so. Although this has happened just one, with the formation of the Republic of Sion.
Population and Society
The Population of the United Alliance is very diverse in every form posible. The population is made up of Humans, that make up the majority of the population but also other Alien species that make up to a third of the inhabitants of the nation. Many languages, religions and cultures can be seen alongside each world in the Alliance.
The Kreonese language, is the standard working language for the United Alliance and is used as a lingua franca between planets with different tongues. Nevertheless, this language is the most natively spoken, especially in many human worlds, as it has gradually supplanted some local minor languages. Kreonese is mostly spoken in those Planets founded by colonist from Kreon, and in those planets settled in other Galaxies, while the Jord and Germinis Nebulas have many distinct languages due to the founding of Jord Nebula planets and the isolation of the Germinis Nebula with many Alien worlds. The Germinis Nebula was subject to the birth of the Republic of Sion.
Aliens species that live within the borders of the United Alliance are the Koor, the Krizik, the Arati, the Aldorians, the Noraki and the Murban, among others. The most diverse world is Kreon, the capital, in which just 35% of its population is human (still being by far the largest species in the planet).
Other Languages spoken in the United Alliance are the other human languages of the Lewis Galaxy (The Imperial language, the Federal language and the Unionist language), the Aldorian languages (Uhara, Margak, Inosh, Palnir and Teremir), the Krizik languages (Zikar, Vazik, Uikik, Mekik and Zak), the Arati languages (Aras, Neren, Irta and Run), the Noraki language and the Murban language.
The Federal language, the Imperial language, the Unionist language, Margak, Inosh, Zikar, Vazik, Murbani and Aras, are the most spoken language in the nation after Kreonese.
