Mars 22nd century by Arminius1871 Mars 22nd century by Arminius1871
I always wanted to make a Mars colonisation scenario^^ Let me explain it.
____________________
Thanks to the invention of a real AI and nanobots, Mars could be terraformed much easier and faster than mankind thought.
The political situation in the world changed a lot in the 21st and 22nd century, Europe and Russia are in an alliance and all in all
there are no huge conflicts between the big power blocks anymore.
Beside Europe, America, Japan together with a row of other asian countries such as Korea and Thailand and China together with India
colonize the terraformed Mars.
They settle along the bigger crater lakes/ seas and rivers or artificial channels. On the map I only did the european part in detail.

Many Europeans started to settle in the european sector and create new states with a culture and architecture inspired by the one
on earth. In the west the european sector has a huge mining an industry area which has german district names, because of the german
company that is leading it. This does not mean there live or rule Germans, it is an international european region.

The capital is Europea, a massive perfectly planned city with beautiful architecture and the european main spaceport named Nouvelle Courou
to honour the french spaceport in South America which helped the Europeans in the early space colonisation era to become a dominant
power in the solar system.

There are also two large cooperation areas, one is a german-french another a russian-german area. There is also a restricted area with secret projects.

The people on Mars have ofc still problems with gravity, which is only 1/3 the one of earth and changes the body structure of all settlers
slowly. So most people that come to Mars, will stay there forever. Also many other planets and moons of the solar system are colonized.

The space powers gave some regions or seas new names according to their own culture.

I must clearly say, I did not create the topographic basemap, I edited it and lowered the opacity!

Thank you for this great and beautiful scenario!
Translated to Russian:
avskor.ru/publ/alter/terraform…

Let's me some notes about russian toponymuses :)
1) There is'nt word "Kranaya", you mean "KraSnaya" (Red)? The "red" naming was wery popular in early soviet era, but maybe colony was named like this not becouse Red soviet flag and becouse of Mars is "red planet", yes? : ) I think it's possible but I still have some doubts about word "Zemlya". It can be translated not only as a "land" or "territory", it's confised with "Earth", and it's strange for martian namings...
2) I think
Mars colonisation in Russia is strongly associated with early sci-fi novel and first soviet sci-fi film "Aelita: Queen of Mars" ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aelita , also "Aelita" is a main sci-fi Russian award for science fiction writers and fandom convention were I have long been involved in the organization and where I want to talk about this and other map :-D )
And it would be beautiful name - "Aelita autonomus republic" (or Avtonomnaya Respublica Aelita, or Aelita Krai or Aelita autonomus okrug, or oblast Aelita). Also it could be name for capital or on of the major cities
3) NovAYA Moskva (or New Moscow), Moscow is "she", not "he". Also - Novomoskva (but it sounds strange)
4)
Since we border with Italians the one of our cities can be named "Novy Tolyatti" or Novotolyatti (it's large city, the russian "capital" of
car industry named after Italian communist politician)
5) It is very strange that the Saransk was selected as second city, it's not a large city and its finno-ugoric name is somewhat dissonant in Russian (some people it's jokingly called Zasransk - cocoa town). Maybe Rostov-na-Marse, Novgorod Marsiansky, Novogagarin and someting like that?
6) Vladimir territory also can be named as Novaya Sibir or Novosiberia

thank you!

Hmm I really need to do a map of Mars for my Solar Strife setting.

Of course Mars is ruled by one nation, the First Martian Empire which roses from ashes of the Third Solar War/Third Solar Strife which lets just say destroyed just about everything including Earth and it's 24 to 28 billion inhabitants. On the plus side it took the Third Reich and the Fascist block dodn't survive the conflict although the German people and such did.

Love it, but a minor detail. I take that Córtez is a Spanish/Portuguese province. The surname "Córtez", written and stressed that way, is common in Latin America but virtually non-existent in Spain, where the form "Cortés" is used instead.

I had a lot of fun with that story; so much fun, in fact, that it led to a six-story saga of Morgan's life. One of the later parts deals with her visiting her father for the last time on Mars.

Nice map ^^ I've always wondering how a realistic pluri-national Mars map would've look like :)
However I'm a little surprise that some future great states like Brazil & Indonesia didn't get their own colonies in the 22th century.

I guess that France is a monarchy again with these names x) ? Ville-Dieu sound a little weird however, even if we've some villages with this name, and even if we become again a monarchy, we're one of the less religious nation in the world, a "La Nouvelle Saint-Louis" would sound better.

May I suggest a Québec subsector (within the EU sector) too x) ? After all they will probably get their own state in the future, and will probably be politically close to France (independantists tend to have a gaullist international policy)

:iconarminius1871:
Arminius1871 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2016
Oh they have nations, they are part of other sectors in cooperation.
Indonesia is with Asia and Brazil is in the american sector.

Yes my french mates wanted a monarchy XD haha
I suggest your suggestion to them^^

The quebec state can be in the Franchamp region later, they will be colonized too,
it´s just the beginning don´t worry.

So there is continentals alliances ?
It's odd to see China, India & Indonesia in the same sector, I would've toutgh they are more likely to be rivals in the future ^^

May I suggest some idea of names for Quebec's regions & cities :) ? I love the idea of a Franco-German & Franco-Québécois partnership for space colonization, it could lead to amazing stories instead the casual full WASP Sci-Fi stories ^^
I guess France still lead a Françafrican alliance too like today ? Or did French speaking Africa become really independant ?

I didn't see any British or English sector, I guess they are the 51th US state, within the American sector x) ?
