Image is part of a future historical setting, see my journal entry Orion’s Arm Future History, A Synopsis.
Among the moons of Jupiter and Saturn the Martian terraforming program has left legacy: a sprawling archipelago of island stations and industrialized moons, Bernal Sphere's and O'Neill Cylinders, Spindle and Wheel cities, and a population of humanity growing into the millions. Trade is the lifeblood of these independent city-states. Entire generations are born and live their lives in spinning cylinders, bubbles, and torus shaped habitats, harvesting, mining, and fabricating all they need from the environment of the outer solar system.

Image falls around +750 years post Martian colonization on my Orion’s Arm timeline. For more information on the System States Era see my journal entry: System States Era
