Solariia, officially the Stellar Ascendancy of Solariia, is a technocratic oligarchy in the Solarii system of Autropolis. The nation was refounded as a protectorate of Endolantron, the founder of Autropolis, with the help of survivors of N-Day¹, in 2016. Two years of social and technological uplifting concluded with the ratification of the Galactic Solarii Charter on February 8th, 2018; officially recognizing Solariia as a sovereign interstellar empire. To demonstrate the fledgling nations newfound status, planetary-wide developments on Aureus and Aureum established the planets as twin-Linkecumenopoli with each representing one of the governments major priorities - materialism and technocracy - respectively. Solariia today exercises sovereignty on twenty-two planets spanning seven unique systems necessitating efficient administrative hierarchy to sustain the governments organization.

Solariia's government is a technocratic oligarchy ruled by a Science Directorate comprised of the ruling coalition. The Supreme Chancellor, Sentius Aetius Aurelius, is the leader of the National Ascendancy Campaign, the paramount faction of the nation. It's followed closely by the Autropolis Cooperation Lobby and the Interstellar Pioneers Committee as the second and third most powerful political factions respectively. Clashes between the ruling and minor coalitions, largely encouraged by the Syndicate Raider Interest and the Fringe-Planet Development Coalition, have tested the limits of Solariia's administrative hierarchy and plunged the nation into civil war and substantially increased black market activity. Despite these setbacks, Solariia maintains a frightening economy, powerful armed forces, innovative technological developments, efficient manufacturing facilities, and commitment to multilateralism.

Solariian diplomacy focuses on economic prosperity and defense. It persistently maintains collaborative projects between Autropolans, engages in inter-regional diplomacy via its protectorate state Astariia and enforces its foreign policy through its stellar fleets Novilunia and Plenilunia. Solariian protectorates are acclaimed for their ardent contributions to Autropolis' economic development, evolution of military industry and promotion of diplomatic initiatives which have helped proliferate Autropolis' power, prestige and influence to many key areas. Solariia was made a permanent member of the Autropolan Interstellar Council (ISC) in late 2018, a position shared by just two others: Endolantron and Ellenburg. The nation has formerly served as the regions State Executive and more recently as the Secretary Chancellor of Autropolis since November 2019 and as an Enforcer for the United Regions Alliance Security Council since April 17th, 2020.

Solariia was one of many commanders of Forest's Canopy Command during N-Day³ and N-Day⁴. It coordinated Joint Forces Operations from participants in Autropolis and Yggdrasil. Canopy secured third globally during N-Day³ and second globally in N-Day⁴ suffering no radiation throughout both events.

History

The Solarii are the primary humanoid species comprising Solariia. They constitute 78% of the entire population. Their evolution on Aureus occurred over hundreds of thousands of years. In their transition to modernity some 10,000 years ago, the stone age saw the creation of language, music and cultural spheres developing within hunter-gatherer societies. Their Neolithic Revolution about 7,000 years ago saw the change in lifestyle from hunter-gatherer to one of agriculture and settlement. Settlements provided the means for the Solarii population to significantly increase. During this time, they became increasingly adept at tool-making and complex-decision making. By the time the Bronze Age dawned about 5,000 years ago, the Solarii developed methods of writing, complex societies, social stratification, and other means to begin nurturing and improving each culture's sprawling civilizations.

Within 1,000 years of the Bronze Age, developments in transportation and globalization saw the rise of exploration and colonialism. During this period, the Arcturian Empire's capital, Astromis, became recognized as the cradle of civilization for its use of writing, construction of cities, development of a class-based society, advancements in agriculture, animal husbandry, application of public buildings, establishment of metallurgy, and the erection of monumental architecture. Most importantly was the spread of the Arcturian culture as the dominant global culture. Its success can be most attributed to its political, legal, social, and military organization which promoted the empire as a beacon of civilization. Other factors were due to its public goods such as sewers to control waste, aqueducts for plumbing, and paved roads for transportation. Advancements in technology and geographical modifications were very superior to other nations at the times because other nations simply did not have the same commodities on Aureus.

Genetic Traits Template of the Solarii

Trait

Description

Charismatic

Compelling charisma positively affects their presence around others.

Intelligent

High intelligence means they enjoy a faster grasp on ever-advanced ideas.

Quick Learners

Extrapolating quickly from their experiences makes them expeditious.

Talented

Talented species have a strong natural aptitude.

Uplifted

Being uplifted means they're happier when living on planets belonging to their benefactor.

Robust

Genetic resequencing improves organ functions making them extraordinarily resistant to environmental hazards and disease.

During the iron and the industrial age the rise of the Scientific Revolution, Technological Revolution and the Industrial Revolution brought such discoveries as imaging technology, major innovations in transport, such as the airplane and automobile; energy development, such as coal and electricity. Higher life expectancy led to the Solarii population on Aureus to rapidly increase numerous times.

Before the advent of the Age of Information, the Endols discovered the Solarii on Aureus and began uplifting them. With the introduction to such advanced technologies, the sudden rise of technological supremacy for the Arcturian Empire led to its dissolution in favor of a global Solariian civilization which was founded with the ratification of the Galactic Solarii Charter on November 22nd, 2016.

The Solarii evolved as a fanatically materialistic and somewhat egalitarian species. These guiding principles stem from the rise of the Arcturian Empire's advanced grasp of technology before the uplifting provided by Endolantron.

Genetics and Cybernetics

Solariian interest in genetics is two-fold, inspiration from Endolantron and a desire to create their own self-sufficient and enduring legacy in the history of all species. The Endols, during the uplifting process, sequenced the genome of the Solarii in just one week. It revealed a predisposition to lowered rates of successful mating compared to other species; hampering reproduction. The replacement of this undesired genetic characteristic by one that makes the Solarii more charismatic baffled Solariian scientists of the time. The Endols display of evolutionary and genetic mastery inspired the Solarii to forge their own species' destiny.

After three years of intensive work and cooperation with the Endols on Aureus and Aureum, Solariia declared it achieved mastery of its own evolution and its scientists successfully genetically resequenced every Solariian. Vastly improving organ function and increasing lifespan by over 50 years. With a mastery of genetic evolution, the Solarii have turned their attention to cybernetics modifications to replace biological organs and tissue with cybernetic models.

Endol

History

Early in the Cold War, a wormhole opened up between the orbits of Earth and another planet habitable to humans. Naturally, humanity took advantage of this and sent people and equipment to colonize the new world. The Endols were the people that colonized the frozen north, and gained their independence a few decades later when they genetically engineered an edible fungus that thrived there. They and the other inhabitants of the new planet maintained smooth diplomatic relations with Earth for another fifty years, when the wormhole suddenly collapsed into nothing. Centuries would pass before the two worlds would find each other again.

The Endols constitute just under 1% of the Solariian population yet are the most influential and are highly privileged in Solariia enjoying exceptional living standards as a token of appreciation from the Solarii. Endols social standing is 'academically privileged', meaning they are free to become any profession in Solariia including full military service and even holding public office and running for Supreme Chancellor. Endols also benefit having unabridged access to the best of Solariian education, enjoy a utopian abundance of consumer goods and are generally one of the highest in Solariian social hierarchies. Less fortunate Endols receive large sums of social welfare and are guaranteed safe and comfortable living conditions in Aureus. While not practiced, Endols are also free to own slaves and property in any Solariian planet, even planets that other Solarii may not be able to hold property in, such as those reserved for the military. Instead, Endols elect to maintain a maximum population of 200,000,000 residents at one time in Solariia, most of them residing in Aureus and Aureum. This limit does not include temporary visitors who are staying for under six months.

Endols residing in Solariia have helped foster strong relations between the two nations. Diplomatic links between the two have have always been positive. Citizens from each share a strongly cheerful opinion on one another and trust between the two nations is constantly reaching new apexes. Relations are so positive that council discussions usually take minutes to reach a consensus meaning action-taking is a potent strongpoint for Autropolis as a whole.

Genetics and Cybernetics

The Endols were once Human, very similar to the appearance of the Solarii. Eons ago they embraced transhumanism and have since become entirely machine. Increasing lifespans to incredible lengths with some Endols being several hundred thousand years old. The species is notable for its high intelligence, conservationism, charisma, and practice of transhumanism.

Governance


Government Type & Authority

Solariia is a Technocratic Oligarchy ruled by the Executive Committee which directs the government apparatus for maximum efficiency. It's comprised of Directors and Associates who are experts in their field of expertise. The four primary fields are physics, sociology, biology, and engineering. Associate Directors manage minor fields such as: agriculture, astronomy, astrophysics, astrobiology, ecology, arcology, pathology, pharmacology, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, ethnology, and geography. Members of the Executive Committee are appointed to their seats by the national collegiate; ensuring a meritocratic ascendancy to power.

The government apparatus represents the nation. It consists of basic functions such as the legislature, executive and judiciary. The former two remain popularly electable positions while seats in the judiciary are appointed by the legislative branch.
