Initially founded in 2099, based on the protocols developed decades earlier for international cooperation to construct the S.S. Conestoga by the Trade Council of Earth's chief minister, Davida Rossi,[1] the United Earth Republic was born from a union of the United States of America and the European Hegemony[2] in 2130,[3] resulting in a structure that combined both the European parliamentary system and North American federalism.[2][4][5] Although the pre-existing national governments continued to exist, they were, from that point forward, more akin to the state governments under the United States.[2] The head of state of the United Earth was the office of the President of the United Earth Republic,[5] while the head of the government was the Prime Minister.[4] Australia, the last remaining independent country, joined the United Earth Republic in 2150.[6][7]
