One Nation Under Jou is an independent and neutral sovereign territory of planetary bodies, encompassing the Morobe system and a part of the Vorsia system, unified by a federal government of the Vorsian Crown. It is a sociopolitical union which shares and celebrates the values of one ruler, citizen rights, rule of law, common tongue, and education in social progress. All territories across the nation work together to provide education, healthcare, quality of life, personal safety and housing to all its citizens to promote prosperity and unity.
The Morobe system was colonised in mid-Year 14 by an independent group of military professionals in a coalition with Damorian Manufacturing Corporation. The group that discovered the system created Sienar Fleet Systems a few weeks later to secure their claim over the planets and to develop a ship manufacturing business to operate from Morobe. This cemented the colonisation of Morobe a success and allowed the owners to not only increase their profit margins, but to raise the standard of living for the colonists.
In early Year 16 the security of the system was consolidated under Permanent Solutions, a mercenary corporation created to oversee Morobe’s defences and provide protection services to the galaxy. In the following year Sienar Fleet Systems was later rebranded to S.W.A.T. Industries, shifting focus from ship production to equipment and weapon manufacture. After over four years of successful independent operations the need to grow the system on a larger scale became clear and in late-Year 18 Permanent Solutions negotiated a mutually beneficial merger with the Tion Hegemony.
The corporation was assimilated into Tion’s military and became the 3rd Fleet, or better known as Tion Defence Division to the wider galaxy. The vast resources and expertise of Tion’s government under leadership of Lady Hegemon Stephanie Barefoot enabled the system’s population to grow from millions into billions and prosper. During this period the Morobe system retained its relative independence by terms of the original negotiations. This partnership lasted for several years.
The inception of the One Nation began during Year 21 after Lady Hegemon announced to Tion’s High Council her intention to step down from her role as the Head of State. Many of the original leaders of the late Permanent Solutions were also aiming to retire from their roles in Tion and questions arose about what shall become of the Morobe system, which was separated from the rest of Tion space by almost half the galaxy.
Those responsible for the initial colonisation of the system felt that Morobe was ready to be its own sovereign territory. However, they were still soldiers at heart and it was decided the burden of governmental leadership would fall to their associate, Countess Lilith Delcroix, the sovereign of an independent long-standing state of Vorsia Companion since Year 11. The political system and Human-centric society of Vorsia Companion with a relatively minor population would not have translated well to encompass the much more populated planets of Morobe, and so a new governmental system was devised. Stemming from the Vorsian absolute monarchy, it was developed into a federal monarchy. This hierarchical system was the most familiar to all involved.
During Year 18 Vorsia Companion saw the rise of Vorsian Orthodoxy; also known as the Church of Jou, which became an integral part of society. The central narrative of the religion is the Jou’s Judgment; an event referencing Vigo Amaranalah Jou’s decision to spare Lilith Delcroix’s life when she willingly offered herself as an atonement for her sins against the Family. The religion remained at the ceremonial forefront of the new federal monarchy and was spread across all of the nation’s planets to provide common ground for the new society.
The new federal government was created on the basis that the sovereign, acting according to the laws of the nation, is the highest power under Vigo Jou in the nation, and has supreme authority over all persons in all causes, as well ecclesiastical as civil. From the federal government to the smallest local authority, all work in the sovereign's name for the benefit of the people. One Nation Under Jou strives for prosperity of all its citizens, where all believe in better worlds.
