During an era of rapid technological advancement on the planet Terra, there existed two primary nations - Lunaris and Solaris. Despite a deep history of armed conflicts and disagreements, relations between the two were stable. However, as their populations grew and the demand for resources increased, the need for expanding territorial control led to an escalating number of clashes and disputes. The nations' leaders agreed that if these events were left to continue, there would be an eventual war, fueled by desperation, that would be more costly than any other before it. While each was independently exploring the development of sustainable space travel, they decided to bring together their best minds working on the projects to expedite development, bolster diplomatic relations, and stem the tide of war. As promising advances were made through their collaborative efforts, tensions started to alleviate. The first ventures to the stars revealed a rich universe - perilous, but full of opportunity. Each nation was allowed to claim entire planets or sectors for their respective sovereignty. To symbolize their hope for lasting peace and prosperity, the nations agreed to rename this region of space Vivacitas.
Solaris burgeoned into a formidable industrial power of the region. Resource extraction was of utmost concern in order to support the needs of its ever growing society, and the worlds which came under Solaris rule became blanketed with grand cities and factories. Free trade reigned as companies and corporations leveraged more economic and political power. Content with the effectiveness of their fusion-based technologies, research efforts focused instead on improving industrial efficiency and capacity. And, while open to diplomatic negotiations, the Solaris governing body often resorted to "action" and more direct methods in order to quickly process disputes.
