Mars Political Map 2 by YNot1989 Mars Political Map 2 by YNot1989
This is a new version of my origional Mars Political Map that has become so popular. I feel this better reflects the politics of my Second Renaissance scenario by 2050, but for some backstory:

During the 2020s a single NGO was able to achieve Single Stage to Orbit space flight, and in doing so became the first company to profit from space based industry and mining. By 2025 this company had become the most powerful entity in the world, commanding trillions in financial power, and operating the largest network of humanitarian projects ever seen.

In the 2030s this company, having spent trillions in R&D over the last decade, began its most ambitious project yet, the Terraforming of Mars. While complete habitability would not be achieved until the end of the century, a number of regions did become suitable for human colonization by the end of the 2030s. Under contract from the richest nations on Earth, the Mars Colonial Authority was established and the planet was divide up among the respective client nations, save for the uninhabitable Polar Region.

I think when we finally reach mars, nation states will be a thing of the past.(the world will have anarchy, wich is much better since it won't be based on voilence but on voluntarism)
these expeditions will probably be commercial.
nice map tough.

I'm making a new map based around commercial exploitation of Mars, but Nation States aren't going anywhere for some time. I think Mars will have a modernized version of the East India Company that will be the driving force behind colonization, but Nation-States on Earth will continue to do what they do. Anarchy isn't what people want or need.

Mars would probably begin usher terraforming by 2500. But still a pretty nice map.

Why would Canada need territory on Mars? Its the second largest nation on Earth with a population smaller than California.
