Remember How about two year ago I said I was making a sci-fi setting? Well some things happened and it turned out it was a bit harder than I expected, but at least now I got something...

Flag of the Nitten Star State, A steel star in a sea of blood
​The Nitten Star State is an autocratic interstellar nation encompassing over six solar systems. With a population of over half a trillion, the NSS is one of the largest political entity in the known systems (though the Nitter Species is not the most populous species, with humanity dwarfing it in both population and territory). The NSS process massive reserves of resources, a high technological base, and one of the largest military. With a militant population, an expansionist minded government, and numerous more than questionable policies, the NSS has been frequently labeled as "Space Nazi lite" by the human nations, though the joke falls flat to the Nits themselves, due to their vastly different history and social value systems.

History

The early history of the Nitter species was shroud in mystery, with much of the records possibly deliberately erased by successive governments (in the name of "preserving social stability"). What is known is that the species was unified in the so called Unification War (also known as the Third Planetary War). The Inter-system era was mostly a time of little note, until the invention of the hyperspace drive.

The following period of interstellar colonization was mostly marked by chaos and lack of regulation, mostly due to the sudden nature of the discovery of FTL. Many super-corporations and nationalistic groups attempted to form independent nation-states of their own in uncharted planets. What followed was a series of conflicts collectively known as The Coherence Wars. During that period of time the military, especially space forces, were rapidly expended, with a side effect of development of semi-autonomous military districts, a problem that continuously to plague the NSS well into the Second Imperial Era. Even so, for a time it appears that the Nitters as a species under a unified government was in danger of falling apart. However, the crisis was mostly averted with copious amounts of orbital bombardment and forced migrations.

First contact with humanity occurred in the Sodden system in 3784UE (Unification Era**), and the First Fringe War erupted soon after. The only thing really notable was the tendency for Nitten Military to loot everything they can get their hands on. In fact, the majority of the looting occurred during the negotiation process, after Dominion starships wiped out much of the Nitten Expedition Fleet.

The Second Fringe War, far from being some grand invasion of humanity, was in actuality the collapse of the Nitters as a unified species. The massive fleets and armies that assault the Fringe worlds were not some organized offensive, but rather the arming of previously marginalized groups by the NSS to sow chaos and serve as a release valve, as well as disposal of obsolete military hardware.

Government

The Nitten Star State is an autocratic dictatorship, led by a Supreme Director back by the Grand council of minsters. Each system has it's own system Director (except for the home system) with each planet having a planetary governor. Most planets are given wide discretion on formulating their own laws, with the only unified national laws in areas concerning interstellar trade, property rights, and arms control. An interesting feature are the existence of thousands of orbital colonies in a semi-autonomous existence, most of them populated by exiled peoples that were deemed "unstable" by the NSS.

Economy

The NSS economy is fundamentally a solar system based one, with the largest economic unit being the solar system. Given the scale of production, the costs of interstellar transportation, and the resources within even the poorest systems, it is rather impractical to have anything more sophisticated. Most industrial production has long ago shifted to orbital assets. Transpiration networks are heavily developed in most places, with most planets processing at least a dozen space elevators and starports. The energy sector is split between core taps (mostly a planetary thing) and solar networks (mostly an orbital thing), along with large numbers of fusion reactors.

Military

The Nitten Military is split between planetary forces and orbital forces, the former much more decentralized than the latter. While the military hardware is often less than inspiring the sheer amount available often makes the Nitten military a force to be reckon with.

Nations of Sodden IV

The Principality of Highfield

More commonly know as the Kingdom of Marysuetopia (the name which the Principality highly resented), the Principality is a small nation located on the southern part of the West continent on Sodden IV. Despite it's small size and population, it is one of the wealthiest nation (as measured in GDP per capita) in the Sodden system (which really means that it's considered to be moderating well off in the general development index in the human systems). The source of the Principality's wealth lies in its control of the planet's only core tap. The nation came into infamy as the only human nation to ally with the alien species known as the Nitters. Despite massive losses suffered in the First Fringe War the Principality continuous to maintain close relations with the aliens...

Republic of Bumfuckstan (RoB, get it? Wait a fucking minute...)

The Republic of Bumfuckstan is a moderately sized nation with a population of 278 million. Known for its extreme levels of corruption in all aspects of its society as well as extreme backwardness of its economy and overall development. However, despite these and numerous flaws, the country was relatively stable (in a form called "stable-instability" by political scientists). Facing the brunt of the Nitten counteroffensive during the First Fringe War, the country collapsed soon after into civil war and general anarchy. The remnants of which were obliterated in the Second Fringe War.

The Enclave of Nosk (yes I'm recycling factions I previously made up, so what?)

The Enclave of Nosk is a heavily industrialized nation, with a large population and small landmass, it is one of the most densely population nations. Originally conceived as a Libertarian colony, the Nosk rapidly (but totally expected by everyone else) devolved into a industrial Oligarchy. The development of the MPK (Marionette Puppe Körper, which are basically zombie cyborgs) significantly changed the social structure of the Nosk, under the new paradigm human suffering and death has become a commodity and something to be actively cultivated. Thus the standards of living for the average inhabitants, already one of the lowest one the planet, dropped significantly further...

​The Patriarchy of Misogynia

Possibility the most oppressive nation in the known systems, the Patriarchy pf Misogynia is a case study (or a strawman, depends on who you ask) of everything that is wrong with Post-informational era Patriarchy. Founded by various terrorist cells fleeing the developed worlds, the PoM was always intended as a hellhole of oppression to the majority of its inhabitants. For most, life in the Patriarchy was lower than that of animals at best, and a hell in reality at worst. Interestingly enough, the PoM has one of the most sophisticated militaries on Sodden IV (at the time of the First Fringe War), processing limited orbital force projection capabilities. Despite nuking most of their own cities during the First Fringe War, the Patriarchy came out of the war in a (relatively) stronger position, only to be conquered in the Second Fringe War.

So tell me Kalga, what do you like about this website the most?

The steady trickle of images of tanks, planes, humor, etc.

That and the ability for me to host images.

Though to be honest for the most part the reason I'm still here is mostly inertia, since I kinda stopped playing computer games for a while now. Real life is getting more and more in the way these days...

It's a positive thing that real life takes over. Means you do something right, you have to live real life more than be on the PC to have a good life. PC is just to keep themselves updated or play some away their time.

I can barely see what your avatar is. You should go over it with ink to darken it up a bit.

Thanks for the advice, though since I don't have the actual paper with me now (or access to a scanner come to think of it), I'll just darken it with microsoft paint... ;)

... or maybe go back to a tree image...

Hahahaha. Ah, MS Paint, so user friendly you can't actually do anything with it.

I suppose one could say that it's really PC.

Dear DeviantArt, when I type in "starfighter" in the search bar, I am looking for orbital space fighter areocraft, not porn.
