== History ==
Following the establishment of government funded colonies outposts on the moon and Mars in the late 21st century further colonisation of the Sol system and beyond was initially carried out by well funded corporate and private investment groups, leading to a great many early colonies being founded for profit, with loose oversight from [[Earth]] governments and agencies. As Earth in the mid 22nd century began to enter a period of great strife and upheaval, many of these colonies began to lose support and assistance from the planet. Now forced to defend for themselves, these now independent colonies began to struggle or collapse outright. The more viable colonies maintained trade and mutual assistance agreements with each other, fostering the beginning of a wider human community that did not involve Earth.
In the 23rd century, recognising their now limited influence on the galactic scale and general irrelevance to the wider human galactic community, the fragmented old Earth nation states came together under a single banner, one Earth government, branding itself as the Terran Commonwealth. In an effort to re-consolidate power and bring the myriad of independent colonies back under their influence the Commonwealth began reestablishing an overarching government in the Sol system and many colonies beyond. This was not without issues, however, as a great many colonies were resistant and felt little loyalty to Earth. An opposing faction was formed, called the Ares Confederation. An alliance of convenience between numerous groups and ideologies, the confederation sought to limit the Commonwealths influence. Following years of war the confederation collapsed, and the Terran Commonwealth looked to further consolidate itself and rebuild. The war took a toll on the Sol system, leading to a number of crucial resource shortages, and the Commonwealth's focus became one of exploration and expansion.

The SCG Assemblies form a basis for diplomacy and trade across human space. Under Theoretically, the leadership governance of their elected secretary general, the Assemblies navigate economic agreements, mining SCG is meant to be simple and environmental concernsscalable. In practice, this is debatable. Representation and matters of sapient rights. For example, during legislative power rests in the Synthetic Intelligence Crisis hands of 2558, both the Solar Assembly and Colonial Assemblies declared posibrains to be sapient the Senate. With the assembly functioning as a lower house and therefore protected by the Universal Declaration of Rightssenate the upper. The bulk secretary-general, elected and a member of the SCG's revenue comes from corporate taxesSenate, serves an eight year term and functions as well as fees for the use Chief Executive of its gateways, communication systems, the SCG. The Secretary General has wide ranging powers and authorities to conduct their business and oversees the various committees and secure trade routes. Dues are of course higher for non-membersdepartments that make up the government.
While member states manage their own internal affairs, gateways and the space between states remain under the jurisdiction of the The SCG. Additionally, any SCG personnel and installations within a member state are considered immune from local law. On most colonies and space stations, the SCG manifests itself mainly acquires its revenue in the form of aid missions, hospitals, and schools. Though the many organizations of a flat one percent tax on the SCG are primarily comprised income of human every SCG citizenscitizen, non-member states often send their own personnel to apply as well as corporation and gain experience through servicetrade taxes.

While the SCG does not govern legal interactions between individual member states, it is permitted by its charter to negotiate with other political entities, human or otherwise, on behalf of its members.

=== Solar Assembly ===The Solar Assembly embodies the remnants of While the SCG's founding body. It manages affairs within Sol and its largest neighbors, Tau Ceti does not typically interfere in local matters and Alpha Centauri. While any negotiations between member of the Solar or Colonial Assemblies can propose a peacekeeping operationstates, humanitarian mission, or other major action, only the Solar Assembly can approve it. Due to the size of both assemblies, votes are majority basedalone is responsible for any external negotiations.
Any sovereign state in the Solar System with There are a human population number of over 50[[SCG Organisations]],000 is eligible for membership, though two members with smaller populations remain from those being departments operated by the original founding states. In additionSol Central Government, any extrasolar states with that encompass a human population of over one billion on one celestial body—planetary, lunar, or otherwise—are eligible for membership, though no extrasolar state has met the criteria in decades. Corporations, even if Sol-based, are not eligible for membership in the Solar Assembly, though they can become members of the Colonial Assembly. Exceptions to this rule exist in the form variety of a few minor Sol-based corporationsfunctions, including [[Aether Atmospherics specialisations and Recycling|Aether Atmospherics]]areas, who were members of the SCG founding body. None of Earth's nation states are Solar Assembly members, largely due ranging from diplomatic services to their own instability. However, several sit on the Solar Assembly as observerslaw enforcement.
=== Colonial Assembly Charter ===The colonial assembly is open to any extrasolar state with a human population Signed at the beginning of the SCG on the 12th of over 500November, 2436 and put into effect on January 1st, 2437 by the Terran Commonwealth,000 in one system. Included are any its member states on a planet or moon, a union number of smaller states under one bannerother human colonies and some corporations at the Geneva Administration Complex, Earth, or even an entire allied system. Corporations headquartered in the Sol system may also gain membership to charter is both the founding treaty and constitution of the Colonial AssemblySCG.

It has been suggested on multiple occasions, without result, that the Free Trade Union be granted voting status despite their lack of borders or physical government presencedo so risking expulsion and massive economic sanctions.
In 2547=== Solar Senate ===The Solar Senate embodies much of the former Terran Commonwealth and the barrier for entry is far higher. The Senate is responsible for acting as a check on the Assembly and the Secretary General. Senators are also responsible for forming and chairing committees, which are responsible for monitoring, a group quality control and setting policy on the aspect for which they are responsible. The Senate is also, without the input of the Assembly, able to direct the deployment of radical Skrellian separatists applied the SCG Defence Forces for peacekeeping operations, though not declare war. Unlike the Assembly, which merely requires a population, membership in the senate is limited to planetary bodies, with each planet sending three elected senators. A rare exception to this is the various moons of the Sol system, which also elect senators. Corporations may not participate in the Senate. The senate is often seen as a more professional political body, and the nature of their work places each senator under intense scrutiny. It is also the senate that elects one of its number as the Secretary-General, who functions as the Colonial governments chief executive. === Solar Assembly ===The Assembly, but were denied entrance to maintain the largest group,consists of elected representatives from every single SCG planet, orbital installation group, gateway, and corporate entities with a population exceeding 100,000 persons, with four representatives per 100,000 persons. The assembly is a positive relationship place of political infighting, backpedalling, manipulation and intrigue with a low bar for entry and limited restrictions on assemblymen. The assembly is overseen by the Skrellspeaker, who is responsible for setting the schedule, and mediating discussion and enforcement of protocol. The issue sparked assembly may draft, submit and forward legislation and motions which, when passed, must then be ratified and voted upon by the Solar Senate, before being signed by the Secretary-General. Outside of their putting forth legislation and voting, assemblymen often partake in tours, inspections and observation of a debate over allowing xenosapients into the myraid of SCG; departments, groups, projects and facilities, forming observer committees.
