[[File:Sol Gov Flag.png|thumb|right|The Sol Central Government Flag]]The '''Sol Central Government,''' commonly referred to as '''SolGov''' or the '''SCG,''' is a federal republic composed of numerous human member states spanning many systems. The SCG governs the majority of human space. Its primary governing bodies are the
Assemblies, which are led by an Assembly-elected secretary general. Membership to the SCG is automatically granted to any colonies established inside or outside of the Sol system. Member states have a great degree of freedom in their actions, though the SCG manages sapient rights, domestic security, economic policy, and diplomacy for humanity as a whole. The SCG's population is diverse, including many non-humans and encompassing a wide range of systems, territories, habitats, and celestial bodies. Through its member states, the SCG governs as one of the most advanced and powerful civilizations in the known galaxy.
== History ==
Humanity first began colonizing the Sol system under the banner of nation state superpowers such as China, India, and America. As the situation on [[Earth]] deteriorated, corporate-funded offworld colonies grew powerful in the absence of oversight. One by one, colonies previously reliant on Earth nation states began to gain independence or dissolve. Forced to fend for themselves, some colonies withered while others disappeared entirely. The more economically self-sufficient colonies maintained communication amongst themselves, creating mutually beneficial trade agreements and alliances.
Over time, Earth 's fractured population managed to put aside its differences to unify under a single banner, an Earth -based government called the Terran Commonwealth. Eager to consolidate its power , the Terran Commonwealth attempted to reassert control over its long-isolated colonies, but was met with resistance. Numerous colonies banded together to form the Ares Confederation , an alliance opposed to any and all Terran Commonwealth infringement on colonial independence. War broke out, fought by several factions loosely tied to various ideologies of the past. After years of interstellar combat, the Terran Commonwealth regained control of the solar system. Faced with a war weary populace and depleted natural resources, the Terran Commonwealth turned its attention to exploration beyond the Sol system . Upon establishing a network of extrasolar outposts, the Terran Commonwealth formally renamed itself to the Sol Central Government and relocated its capital to the foremost scientific and martial powerhouse in the system—[[Mars]].
present day, extrasolar colonization continues at a rapid pace, with humanity constantly stretching onward and outward into the galaxy. The SCG shepherds the children of Earth, helping to defend colonies from the predatory [[ Vox]] while maintaining relations with the benevolent [[ Skrell]] and the primitive [[ Unathi]]. Gateways and [[ bluespace]] drives allow humans to spread further and faster than ever before.
