  1. The Equatorial Union is formed from the nations of South Asia, South-East Asia and Papua New Guinea.

    These nation strived to maintain a high degree of neutrality. The Union was initially a regional economic bloc to tackle the threat of economic downfall, and eventually agreed to form a Union under the leadership of a single government in light of the formation of larger nations in the world. The Union is neutral due to its weak military that is not powerful enough to join the Earth Alliance. However, it is located strategically along the major shipping routes, making it a powerful economic force. Although it is the largest neutral nation, it is the weakest. The Union is led by the Prime Minister. The capital city of the Equatorial Union is Mumbai.
    The Union struggles to catch up with the bigger nations in terms of technological advancements. It is not on good terms with the Eurasian Federation and it is under the threat of being absorbed by the powerful nation.
    Capital: Mumbai
    Military Headquarters: Rangoon
    Chief of State: Prime Minister
    Major Cities: Mumbai, Rangoon, Bangkok, Phnom Penh, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Palembang, Jakarta, Surabaya, Manila, Islamabad, New Delhi, Colombo, Port Moresby

  3. The South African Union is the weakest nation of the Earth Alliance.
    Introduction
     The only value it has to the Earth Alliance is the Victoria mass driver that it possess. The Union spans the territories of Southern Africa, Tanzania, Mozambique, Malawi, Madagascar, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Seychelles, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Because of its dependence on aid from the other nations of the Earth Alliance, the Union has yet to become a truly independent nation.
    Brief Overview
    Capital: Cape Town
    Military Headquarters: Antananarivo
    Chief of State: President
    Major Cities: Cape Town, Johannesburg, Windhoek, Lusaka, Lilongwe, Dar es Salaam, Harare, Victoria
    History
    In light of the civil wars that raged constantly across North Africa, many southern African nations united in order to provide a strong and stable nation-state. This resulted in the formation of the South African Union. However, the transition to a large nation-state was anything but smooth. The unification did nothing to erase the graft and corruption that existed in the local governments.
    Many nations in the Union were already on the borderline state of poverty and the continued corruption did nothing to help the situation. It was during the early years of the Union when they began to depend on aid from the three major powers on Earth: the Atlantic Federation, Eurasian Federation, and the Republic of East Asia. The more the Union depended on foreign aid, the more transparent their power and influence were. The Union made numerous concessions with little opposition to a variety of demands from the other nation-states, including the joint Eurasian Federation/South African Union construction of the vital Victoria mass driver.
    While the mass driver was a boon to the struggling Union economy, it further raised the Union's dependence on the other terrestrial powers. The government turned a blind eye to various activities on their soil, such as the conscription of entire villages into forced labour for the construction of military facilities.
    With the formation of the Earth Alliance, the Union gave up more concessions by allowing OMNI Enforcer military units, especially those from the Atlantic Federation, to occupy bases and other key facilities across the Union. The government welcomed these units because their own armies and constabulary forces were woefully ill-equipped to defend the Union from the growing Coordinator threat. Also, they allowed the instalment of an Atlantic Federation-appointed candidate to take the seat of the Presidency, due to the significant influence and aid the Atlantic Federation brought into the nation.
    But like the Republic of East Asia, the Union took a devastating blow in the loss of its own mass driver and spaceport. With the loss of the Victoria spaceport, the Union essentially lost its value, so the Atlantic Federation pulled back their military support and left the Union to fend for itself. Almost immediately afterwards, numerous dissenters and splinter groups rose up endangering what little stability the Union had left. The Eurasian Federation, whether it was for actual humanitarian purposes or just to spite the Atlantic Federation, sent in military units, food, and supplies to keep the Union in one piece. They also encouraged government officials to become more independent, rather than remain a lapdog of the Atlantic Federation.
    But with few reformists and moderates in the government, the Union continued to struggle throughout the first war and even into the second. With the Junius Seven colony drop, the Union’s capital, Cape Town, was flooded like many other coastal cities throughout the world. Even the Eurasian Federation pulled back some of their units to assist their homeland. The state of poverty plus the chaos following the colony drop once again endangered the integrity of the Union. It continued to struggle until the signing of the PEACE Treaty.
    As aid from the Eurasian Federation, Republic of East Asia, and sympathizers from the Atlantic Federation flowed in, the reformists in the Union government managed to gain influence and began to rebuild their ragged nation. But the government has a long road ahead of them if they are to assert themselves as a truly independent nation of the Earth Alliance.
    Administration
    The South African Union operates under a Republic, in which citizens vote for representatives, which in turn, will vote on legislation and the appointment of executive official However, with the significant corruption within the government, it isn’t surprising that the citizens tend to distrust their government. Reformists are attempting to rectify this issue, but it’s clear that this process will take some time
    Military
    The Union's military comprises mainly of local defence forces that are meant to safeguard the security of each of the Union’s nation blocs. While some citizens enlist in OMNI Enforcer, the Union does not have any formal military units. It is entirely dependent on military units sent in from other nations in the Earth Alliance.
  4. The Republic of East Asia is the third largest and powerful member of the Earth Alliance.

    Chief of State: Premier
    Major Cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo, Kobe, Hiroshima, Yokohama, Osaka, Kyoto, Seoul, Hong Kong, Taipei, Kaohsiung, Guangzhou, Tibet, Macau
    History
    The formation of the Republic of East Asia was in response to the near-simultaneous formations of the Atlantic Federation and the Eurasian Federation back during the early Cosmic Era years. Despite this unprecedented unification, the Republic fell behind in terms of technological and military power in comparison to the two Federations. It continued to rely on its strength of sheer manpower that the nation could mobilize for both its military and industries.
    Despite several squabbles with the other nation-states, the Republic was able to complete its first major project, the Kaohsiung Mass Driver. While Hong Kong and Shanghai still served as major terrestrial economic centrers, the southern Taiwan spaceport bridged the Republic with outer space. With this, the Republic's strength and influence grew. However, the completion of the mass driver caused further resentment between the Republic and the Atlantic Federation. The Atlantic Federation, in cooperation with the United States of South America, accelerated construction of the Porta Panama mass driver. Eurasian Federation pushed for tariffs and other trade restrictions against the Republic despite already possessing the Gibraltar spaceport.
    It was not until the Tragedy of Copernicus in which these nations finally united through the formation of the Earth Alliance. The Republic understood the need for cooperation and allowed full access to their mass driver and other facilities upon the formation of the Alliance’s military arm, OMNI Enforcer. Utilizing their industrial strength, the Republic began full production of armaments and other goods for the entire Earth Alliance. The government also sought a representative to take the role of Secretary-General in the Earth Alliance, even though they knew that the position was inherently inferior to the Grand Admiral. Similar to the Eurasian Federation, the influence of Blue Cosmos was minor and the population in general did not house as much of the anti-Coordinator fervour that plagued the Atlantic Federation. This would have led to further friction, but the Republic concessions and contributions to the Alliance reduced potential resentment to a mere simmer.
    With the commencement of the First Bloody Valentine War, the Republic was hit by two harsh blows in one swift stroke. ZAFT's earthbound offensive, Operation Uroboros, initially crippled the Republic’s industries and military defences through the deployment of Neutron-Jammers. The Republic was able to quickly recover since they still used a large number of hydroelectric dams and clean coal plants, but many sections of the Republic were still without power and they had difficulty containing the chaos in several major cities. Despite that, they continued to fuel the Alliance's war machine. But with ZAFT's successful conquest of the Kaohsiung spaceport months later, the Republic's influence waned as they were sidelined until the war’s end.
    During the Second Bloody Valentine War, the Republic reeled from the damage it took during the Junius Seven colony drop. Many cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, and Seoul, were either flooded by tidal waves or completely wiped out by falling debris. Surviving members of the government and military command relocated inland; the government relocated to Xi’an and the military to Chengdu in the Sichuan province.
    After the excessive razing of Berlin in the Eurasian Federation and the revelation of the existence of LOGOS, the Republic broke off from the Alliance. They also backed their citizens' furore and moved to apprehend and persecute LOGOS members and supporters, including those with close ties with a portion of the government. The military quickly deployed several naval fleets to Gibraltar, where many former EA units gathered. However, this sudden opportunity turned into disaster as nearly eighty percent of the Republic’s naval assets were completely wiped out during the EA/ZAFT alliance’s assault on Heaven's Base. Once again, the Republic was forced to sit on the sidelines until the end of the war.
    With the signing of the PEACE Treaty, a new lease on life was given to the Republic of East Asia. It underwent a massive reconstruction effort and managed to rebuild most of the cities damaged or lost during the colony drop, albeit not to their original state. It was during this time in which the Republic started somewhat cordial relationships with neutral and ZAFT-aligned nations by offering mutual support during the reconstruction process.
    Even though the Earth Alliance was reunited, the member nations were still wary of their supposed allies. Because of this as well as the results of the past two wars, the Republic began to take a more proactive stance in their involvement in the Alliance. Significant effort was taken to rigorously build up and train their military defence forces in order to attain equal standing with the two Federations. The Republic continued to gain more influence during this time of peace and with the current Secretary-General, Hyun-Jin Ho.
    Administration
    The Republic of East Asia operates under a parliamentary democracy. The executive leader is the Premier and delegates to a score of Cabinet members. The government also contains a parliament, with approximately equal representation among the nation blocs and a judiciary. While the general public votes for both members of the parliament and the Premier, the Premier appoints Cabinet members after approval from the Parliament. This same process is done for appointing members for the Earth Alliance Council and for Secretary-General candidates. The Premier can only take emergency powers in times of war and must be ready to relinquish them. The creators of the government went back to old Chinese cultural references by tying the government officials with that of the Mandate of Heaven. During rare occasions, the citizenry could rise up and call for the resignation of the Premier or other ranking officials. This provides the incentive for the politicians to maintain a strong rapport with the people.
    Military
    While a significant portion of the Republic's existing military is integrated into OMNI Enforcer, they still maintain a number of naval fleets, armies, and other military units for their own domestic defences. Given the new, proactive stance that the Republic took after the reconstruction process, they also have two space fleets stationed at the Riccus Lunar support base. They also have several Independent Mobile Battalion|Independent Mobile Battalions that answer only to the Premier and the Republic’s central military command.
