Dont get too concerned, the ships are not massive behemoths nearly as big as the moon though the this is a outer defence fleet probably several hundred thousand miles away from earth. please note making the 6 rings of earth was DIFFICULT!
About this creation
The capital and home world of the human race and the Colonial federation, we've skipped along the timeline now to 600 years into the reign of the federation. By now humans have still not contacted alien races, still baffling scientists, aside from a few ape-like creatures nothing more sentient have been encountered, worlds once inhabitable have been turned into Lush eden planets by terraforming. but the moon remains untouched, as a symbol of what drove humanity to reach for the stars. over a thousand planets strong, a fleet shockingly large and technology fearfully advanced technology
humans have outdone what they thought was possible in 600 years time. the federation marines are more fierce now than ever, as training is brutal and for the final test, batches of 500 men are dropped onto MNC-86 Also known as Satans true lair with nothing but a gun and a truckload of ammo, into planet full of deadly creatures for 2 weeks. space station cities are common. most of them with over a million population.
Join the federation, meatbag! you wanna live for a short while???
excuse the white square, uploading difficulties, and the dreadnought was going to be much, much bigger but i could not make it bigger without it becoming a pixelated mess
Now with a map!
The federation is separated into 3 clusters, the orion spur (The primary cluster) and the secondary clusters
The primary cluster is the population centre of the federation, despite the large amount of credits flowing around here, 20% of people live on homesteads and farms. and the secondary clusters the industrial backbone of the federation. and have double the amount of credits flowing there, but normally flowing to the big bosses.
Population centre: Colonies with booming metropolises and a population over 10 billion leisure and entertainment flourish in these colonies.
Area of influence: While each planet has its own government and can have little as only an an ambassador for politics with the prime government. The prime government insists all planets stay within there rule. and most planets do because of the wealth involved and the federation marines there only form of defence . but some of the prime cluster colonies have there own colonial militia. extra watch is kept on those due to possible uprisings
Fortress worlds: Ex-population centres that had an uprising of recruitment into the federation armed forces. requirements are a military presence of over 1 billion. the result is a planet with 80% military science labs, barracks, more than the required two orbital elevators and enough shipyards in orbit to maintain the fleets. Most Fortress worlds have a population of 2 billion while Mars, the first fortress world has over 5 billion marines and Luna, the first extrasolar colony, has a population of 3 billion marines.
Sectors: I never got round due to the laggyness this galaxy map was for my computer (the file needed shrinking MOCpages would even load) there are around 20 sectors. most of these 20 sectors are small, and close to earth. while outer sectors are bigger, and less territorial claims, while independent, as a client of the federation and humanity. planets are required to keep in close contact with there sector and its sector governing system. whom keeps contact with the rest of the sectors and bows before the mighty president (weep in joy... dont make me make you weep!!)
