The Rise of the Moon
In the early 40s, America re-began its trips to the moon. Soon, other countries followed and started their own missons to the moon in search of heluim. The Americans had a large part of the moon, with France and Britain behind. China also had a decent sized colony. Japan had the smallest colony, but still had a very productive area in terms of energy produced. The rest of the world combined to form the largest colony of them all, the Republic of the Moon. Companies like AmeriMoon and AmeriHeluim soon poped up and began to send enough eletricity to power America for 1 year. American power plants could not keep up, and soon shut down.
The Moon reached 300 millon people by 2055. Their was massive immigration as companies like Moon Motors (MM), AutoMoonbiles, and many1 others began producing a variety of new space cars. The average cost in 2045 to buy a space car capable of goin to the Moon was 1,000,000. Plus, these first space cars took up large amounts of gas or eletricity, crashed often, and were bulky. In 2055 the space cars were only 100,000, were more efficent, and had better saftey levels. There were also new spac
e cars capable of using heluim. These new ones cost 150,000, had better milage, but were less safe. Their was also the solar powered space cars that were smaller, less safe, and cheaper. The main form of music on the Moon was Rock n Roll as it was surprisingly popular among Moon citizens. They also prefered the diner with the Stereo that allowed anyone to pick the song.
The 60sHowever, many colonists wanted to have a better say in how their colonies were run. American Colonists had the same rights as any other Americans, but they wanted to have a better say in their colonies policies. By 2061, most Countries let their colonies go free. However, China did not let their colony go so fast. They began bombarding revolters and sending troops to their colony. The colonists began guerrilla warfare and killing any Chinese troops. Soon entire neighborhoods were desetroyed that were suspected to have rebels. The entire world watched as hundreds of innocent people were killed. In 2062, the other newly formed moon countries decleared war on China. The The First Moon War was being fought. The colonists bought the newest weapons available to them, like the Target Lasor, a new weapon that could exactly determine the angle and other information needed to hit an enemy by missle. The Airforce soon began shooting down any Chinese landing forces. The Chinese were surprised by the other countries qucik moblisation, however they realised that if they took over these countries that they could control the entire heluim supply. The Chinese began producing a new air vehicle that could survive a hit by a missle long enough for it to drop its troops off and get help. They also began using new "star satilites" that could knock out any missle. They soon had their colony under Chinese control again, and were soon advancing across the netural moon groung to get to the Moon Countries. Soon, New America began digging trenchs and placing mines accross the area to stop the Chinese advance. They soon had stopped them, and by late 2062 had pushed back the Chinese. Greater Britain and Paris soon fired hundreds of missles into the Capitol of the Chinese colony. Back on Earth, China was embargoed by most of the world. The U.N demanded that China withdrawl, when they didn't they lost their permant seat. Soon the Chinese economy grinded to a halt. The Chinese were facing bankruptcy. At the end of 2065, with American, British, French, and Japenese forces at the border of the colony and out of cash, they admited defeat and retreated off the moon, never to return. Soon the Chinese colony was now a country, and was soon a beacon of hope for Chinese families back on Earth hopeing for Freedom. The Moon Countries soon formed the Moon Defense Alliance (MDA). They also joined the U.N and promised not to pollute the air of the moon as they would lose everything they fought for then if it was destroyed. The Moon soon became a place of tourism and research as city lights did not interfere with telescopes. The moon also began manufacturing cars that ran on batteries. Soon, another population boom happened in 2067 when the highway between Earth and the Moon was completed. The immigrants were mostly American and British as the highway was completed in America and Britain was one of the few that helped pay for it. Citizens from other countries had to pay high prices to get a ticket, get documented, go through dozens of agencies to make sure they arn't terrorists or criminals, get passports, and much more. The moon was soon populated mostly by English speakers. Many felt that America was trying to get influence on the moon by doing this. Soon, the price of a ticket was lowered, and some agencies were removed, but it was still hard to use the space highway.
