Because of this sudden expansion and growth of power by the Arabians, the European Union, now consisting of all European Nations, excluding Russia, solidify into a single European state, becoming the third superpower of the 21st century. The nations with a super majority of English speakers, UK, Ireland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Finland decide to join America instead. Because the UK joined America, this prompted its former commonwealths to do the same. Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean Islands that speak English, and the English territories in the Americas. The Caribbean Islands are united into a single Caribbean state.
To accommodate these nations, America is renamed the English Union and creates a European Congress and a Pacific Congress to work side by side with the North American Congress.

But once they are married, they must hand over all of it to their husbands. Women are allowed to walk in public by themselves and are not required to cover their faces.

Due to this and Russia's recent economic boom, it becomes the fourth superpower of the 21st century.2024: Afghanistan and Pakistan ask for admission to Arabia. The Pharaoh agrees and makes them the next two states.
Arabian companies make loads of money thanks to carbon nanotubes and now the world's first, and only, space elevator has finished construction. Arabia has also secretly developed satellites that can artificially create a magnetic field to cover one square kilometer, four being needed to cover the area.
2025: China fully develops the first fusion reactor and sells the plans to build one to all who can afford it. Fusion reactors are bought by the English Union, European Union, Russia, Brazil, Arabia, and India. Each nation sells the energy they generate to neighboring countries, making China, Brazil, and India superpowers, making a total of 7.
2026: The Arab Federation sends the first man to Mars in an ion engine powered ship, who says the famous phrase "One step closer to the stars."

These 20 astronauts also carry with them a total of 30 satellites, six on each ship. These satellites will be able to cover 20 square kilometers of Mars. There is a habitation module and return vehicle on each ship. Another ten ships are sent to Venus, each carrying nine satellites each, covering 72 square kilometers. Once this information reaches the other nations, they are angry that the Arabians have kept everyone else from using their technology.
2029: The English Union finishes building its own space elevator after discovering how to mass produce carbon nanotubes. An English spy in Arabia also steals plans for a magnetic field generator. The English sell the plans on how to make both carbon nanotubes and magnetic field generators. All the superpowers can now make regular flights to Mars and Venus. Once the Arabians find out that the English have stolen from them and sold the plans, each superpower begins to cut ties with all others and the Second Cold War begins. A new space race begins.
2030: The English Union and the Arab Federation both launch ten ships, each carrying four astronauts, six satellites, a habitation module, and a return vehicle each. The first two colonies on Mars have been started. Arabia also sends another ten ships to Venus, each one carrying nine satellites.
Fully functioning lunar colonies have been established on the moon as well, one for each superpower
The Pharaoh requires that all women are required to go to school through the 12th grade, now that many women are preoccupied with running businesses and they do not have the time to teach their daughters to be housewives. Although women still take the required classes along with men, they are also required to take classes that concern household duties as well.
