Martian Terraforming

Mars is the fourth innermost planet within the Solar System. It has 1/3 the gravity of Earth. Nero au Augustus is the ArchGovernor, the billions of lowReds of Mars widely believe that they are working to help terraform the Martian surface, often completely unaware that this had been completed for over 700 hundred years, with about a million Golds living on the surface.

Composition[edit | edit source]

Its red colour was gained from iron oxide, however, after the surface had been terraformed, it appears as white and green instead, with an atmosphere and clouds.

Climate[edit | edit source]

Due to the extensive terraforming, much of Mars has a temperate climate, except for the poles, which has harsh icy and stormy weather to raise the Obsidians. Due to the sparse plains, dust devils would occur and destroy topsoil and croplands.

Ecology[edit | edit source]

There were no native flora and fauna on Mars until it was terraformed. Even after the terraforming, there are not a lot of vegetation, however, there were many lakes that formed in the craters of Mars, and the entire Borealis basin of the northen hemisphere is filled with freshwater.

  • Pitvipers
  • Spiderworms

Culture[edit | edit source]

There are one thousand cities on the surface of Mars, each at the center of a hundred subterranean mining colonies.

Economy[edit | edit source]

Mars' two biggest exports are Helium-3 and Obsidian slave knights. Martian Obsidian are considered to be the highest caliber warriors in the Society, and Mars' Helium mines make it the energy capital of the solar system.

Because of these exports, Mars serves as a major trading hub between the Rim and the Core, with the Julii-Agos trade troutes linking Mars to the Rim.

Government[edit | edit source]

There are one thousand cities on Mars, each ruled by a Governor, the ArchGovernor presiding over all. Each city is set in the center of a hundred mining colonies. The Governors manages these colonies, with the individual MineMagistrates managing the day-to-day affairs. The citadel of the ArchGovernor is located in Agea, in the Valles Marineris.
