📝 Hi! Welcome to The Great Universe!

Our National Anthem: ♬♩The Great Universe will be united as we stand how oh mighty we stand! Created by God and will always be in peace there really is no better place than The Great Universe! ♬ ♪

We're lovin' it ;D

Raiders, we're not at our peak, but we got a long cherished history that spans 3 1/2 years. We're not just an embassy collector. I acknowledge & apologize that I used to be a weirdo & unkind on NS. I joined NS at a young age & im sorry, I did many things wrong. Even irresponsible. But I never raided.

Thanks Japanese ronald mc donald for stopping some embassies from closing! You're awarded the Medal of Freedom.



Thanks to The Universe World for saving TGU also... we couldn't do it without you.

Expanded map:

It's the year 2251. Humanity has reached for the stars, and have succeeded. They have made contact with several alien civilizations and the solar system is completely colonized except for Venus. Giant solar platforms circle the sun. Corporations that were once countries that fell now control the skies. The earth, nor the sky is not the limit. You are a budding entrepreneur that is looking to one day rule this space and become the most renown person ever, and so you start your journey.
Choose your class:
YOU CAN CONVERT ANY TIME AND HAVE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF OTHER CLASSES SUCH AS BEING A MINER YET OWNING GUNBOATS AND FORTS
Miner:
You start with a mining platform and can purchase upgraded versions or asteroids or planet plots to mine on. You can slowly grow your empire by recruiting more miners and buying trade ships and establishing a presence on major trade routes such as Ethera or Lapiz. Buy refiners and equipment, make deals, and hire escorts to protect your ships, which brings us to
Pirates
You start with a Manifest class cruiser and slowly make you way up, buying more experienced crew members and different ships by raiding mining and military ships, as well as ransacking trading platforms and even small planets. Research, evolve and upgrade your ships and weapons!
Mercenary:
Start with small gunboats and cruisers, protect and be recruited by traders and governments to protect star systems, convoys, trade routes, and mines. Buy more powerful ships and systems, starfighters, starships, and capital ships.
You can assault planets with sufficient military power and can construct structures on them such as forts or command centers.
Corporate:
Rule the galaxy. It's in your hands. One of the most powerful positions, being in hold of thousands of ships, soldiers, mines, and more, with nations under your hand. But this comes at a cost. It will take time to get this role.
Traders:
Buy valuable goods from all over the galaxy and trade and barter them for higher prices, strategic placement. Build larger transport fleets and protection systems as trade ships are very rare to find. Build connections, get more valuable materials, and you just might get a fair trade.
List of all available starships by tier and time to build:
Tier 1: 4 hours

Duckburg /ˈdʌkbɜːrɡ/ is the capital city of Paperino.

The location that would eventually become the centre of Duckburg was originally known as "Fort Drake Borough," a fort built in the 16th century by British explorer Sir Francis Drake. By the 19th century, the fort had been handed over by its departing British occupants to Cornelius Coot, who renamed the fort "Duckburg". "Drake" means a male duck, while "borough" and "burg" are synonyms meaning a town or district that is an administrative unit.Cornelius Coot turned the old fort into a trading post for fellow traders and hunters, and their families. Eventually a small town grew around the fort on top of Killmule Hill. In Carl Barks' story The Day Duckburg Got Dyed (1957), it is revealed that Cornelius Coot at some point in Duckburg's history managed to pipe mountain water into the town.

The size and structure of Duckburg varied in the works by Barks: it was adjusted to better fit the story he wanted to tell; it could vary from a small town to a medium-sized city, to a bustling metropolis. Later writers and artists most of the time also continues this tradition. In one specific story by Barks, Monsterville (1961), Duckburg was even transformed into a futuristic city by Gyro Gearloose, however it proved that the citizens were not ready for the high level of technology that the new city provided. Thus the city was turned back to its old city structure.

Duckburg is a major center for Space exploration, mainly operated and overseen by Gyro Gearloose, and has had expeditions to the Moon, Mars, Venus, the Asteroids, and more remote parts of the Galaxy. The city also features a sea port and is in proximity of a large forest called the Black Forest and to several mountains, the most notable being "Old Demon Tooth", usually depicted as a towering pointed peak leaning slightly to the side.[7] The main river of the city is the Tulebug River, first mentioned in The Money Well (1958) by Carl Barks, and it is located near Killmotor Hill.

Duckburg is home to Yarvard University (a play on the universities of Harvard and Yale), an institution more notable for its athletic teams than for its academic achievements.

Duckburg is also the home of the Billionaires Club of some of which Scrooge McDuck, John D. Rockerduck and, according to some stories, Flintheart Glomgold are influential members. Duckburg also has a Ritz Hotel

We’ve just been raided very boringly by Lily trash so please ignore any closure of our embassy and reapply if we can’t get a defender to stop it in time. Our sister region Lewisham is our backup until our founder in Netraucora comes back >_<

All the discussion here seems to come from other regions, I see. Well, greetings from Fodlan!
