Hi Everyone

I think most of the major changes are done, I think. Now I will be just doing small stuff to improve security and hopefully make everything look better. :)

Administrative divisions in space

edited 6:19PM in General Chat

Every place that is inhabited will eventually be governed one way or another. Settlements of interstellar polities are no different. But how exactly. Probaly our current systems wouldn't really work since they are based on planet surface control, but a spacebourne community could have settlements on orbit, on other planetary bodies. They could also have settlements floating on seas and settlements below the seas. They could also have settlements deep in the planetary bodie's crust. Individual settlements perhaps could be somehow divided into our current style administrative divisions. But stuff gets tricky when we start to put orbiting bodies into administrative divisions. They don't have clear borders since they tend to move around quite large distances.


 


I could see star systems fitting into our current administrative division style. They can be considered to be standing still in relation to each other according to human perseption of time.


 


At higher level I think that people would adopt some sort of a vassal-liege system, where vassals are relatively independent. But planet surface could be divided with the convendtional methods.

    yeah but I doubt that would ever work because of our greed as a species. Someone or group would always want more its in our nature so coexistence with all those different sort of settlements wouldn't work because a settlement would have a resource another didn't and eventually they would fight over the resource. Decent concept and could work with maybe the right species but I doubt we could do it :)
