Please refer to this page: Concepts & Scraps

Medieval Origins Concept of Daresia
By BumperJumper and Darrensier
Although it may take a rather long period of time, and an appripriate amount of brainpower to do so, the origins of Daresia may range back to the Medieval times, mostly focusing on the British, Norse, French, German, Chinese and Japanese. Respectively, a unification of Europe and Asia. Daresia, being the land of diversity.
- Daresia is split between nations/factions/areas
- Many cultures, with a unified ancestry.
Credit to Neolyx for the following concept:
Daresia is an empire forged by a forgotten royalty, incorporating modern technology into their will in the post-modern era (21st century) and becoming a superpower, both in its military and political influence. The Black Fox Regiment is then assigned by the empire to be their elite fighters in the year 2024. By the late 22nd century, humanity has expanded their reign to the planets within their solar system, having built colonies on the moon and Mars. During this period, the Extra-planetary Consortium of Humanity (EPCON-H) was formed by the United Nations and other megacorporations. Soon, with the dawn of the space age, Radon Industries was formed, being the most successful in their business of manufacturing interplanetary spacecraft.
And add those who ruled daresia as well
Daresian Conscription System Concept
Short thought: Daresia is very abundant in resources, therefore it is a nation that is vulnerable to attack from other nations. Thus, implementing a system of conscription for those who reach the age of 18/21.
(Only in times of tension, or whatever.)
Universal Credits [UCD]
Established by the EPCON-H on the late 23rd century, credits is a universal human currency accepted by all factions in the human alliance, previously known as the United Nations. Similar to the 21st century United States Dollar [USD], any faction's currency can be exchanged for credits, and vice versa. Its value is similar to the dollar as well, however advancements in manufacturing processes and with the resources of several planets at our disposal, the value of certain previously expensive items have decreased. In turn, the larger human population increases the number of sales, sustaining a flourishing new economy. Exportation is the primary source of income of any planet, as such, spacecrafts are in high demand and companies that produce them are among the wealthiest.
As humans grow in influence, the concept of nations is slowly diminishing. Companies with the wealth of countries arise, and soon are able to claim entire planets - they are commonly referred to as factions, similar in nature to a country, but with all of its citizens working for one company. Few planets house more than a couple countries or factions are once. A law created by EPCON-H states that no faction is to claim complete ownership to more than one a planet at a time. Although countries on Earth are less active in ther pursue of planetary ownership, they occasionally create interplanetary colonization projects, often with other nations.
Partially owned by Radon, SkyNet provides services similar to an internet service provider, but exponentially larger in scale. SkyNet provides a common network to all allied factions and nations, connecting every colonized planet. Other than their gigantic network of transmission satellites, SkyNet also sent several space stations into deep space and in orbit of certain planets to aid travelers. They also manufacture exploration satellites and orbital weapon platforms. In addition to advertising and satellite exportation, SkyNet's income include taxing connected factions and nations a small fee annually. Having no competitor, SkyNet easily became one of the wealthiest and influencial company in the galaxy, with a large portion of that wealth being transferred to Radon due to Radon's partial ownership.
With Daresia as a nation that has contributed significantly with the advancement of technology, and other stuff, please expect to see 'other stuff' in the lore of Avalon.
For Example, by the time it's 2001, we may already have exosuits, we may already have accomplished such significant events in space, we may not have had 9/11, America may not be known as the 'greatest country on Earth'.
You see, a little thing can change large things in history, where a large thing changes history entirely.
