The Federation of Central Usea (中央ユージア連合),[1] frequently referred to as the FCU, is one of the major countries on the Usean continent. Although unofficial, the FCU is considered to be the head state of the Independent State Allied Forces.[2]

History

Pre-Ulysses

The FCU is believed to have existed for quite some time, possibly as one of the first Usean countries. The Federation was one of the member states of the Central Usea Treaty Organization (UTO), and with its size and economic influence, held considerable sway over the multinational governing body. The FCU also held long-standing hostilities with the Federal Republic of Erusea to the west, which would culminate in the 1990s; FCU troops were stationed on the Erusean borders for an unknown reason at the start of the decade.[3]

In 1995, the Skully Islands—a territory under FCU jurisdiction—were taken over by an anti-government rebel force. Lieutenant General Robert Tyler, serving as the head of the military in the Federation's southern territories, quelled the uprising with the assistance of Scarface Squadron and other mercenary forces.[4][5]

Response to Ulysses

In October 1994, the Ulysses 1994XF04 asteroid was discovered by researchers from two Usean universities who shared their findings with the FCU government. The Federation leaders requested further research be done and kept the information classified until it had been confirmed that countermeasures were required.[3]

After consulting with the nation's Aerospace Society, the news of Ulysses' approach was publicly revealed by President Robert Sinclair in a historic press conference on April 20, 1996. The head of the FCU's Department of Defense, Richard Payne, responded by ordering the return of all FCU forces stationed overseas, including those involved in the ongoing dispute between the Federation and Erusea along the southern Amber-Ugellas border. This order left the international coalition forces in a precarious situation, forcing the UTO to retire its personnel from the area shortly thereafter.[3][6]

In the years that followed, the FCU would be instrumental in the creation of Stonehenge. Initially conceived as an internal FCU defense initiative, the STN eventually became a multinational project after it proved too great an endeavor for one nation to undertake. Stonehenge was designed and built by an international team of scientists and builders in the neutral country of San Salvacion, Usea's "Symbol of Peace".[7] Despite foreign collaboration, the Federation would remain the primary contributor to Stonehenge's construction effort in terms of both capital and total manpower provided.

Outbreak of war

After Ulysses' impact in July 1999, problems stemming from the continent's refugee crisis caused Erusea to invade San Salvacion and capture Stonehenge. Erusea's actions outraged the international community and led to an exchange of threats between President Sinclair and the Erusean leadership. When Erusea did not withdraw on the FCU's September 14 deadline, Sinclair announced the disintegration of the UTO's economic alliance and the formation of the Independent State Allied Forces, triggering the Continental War.[3][7]

Postwar

The FCU was one of the attendees of the 2008 G7 Summit aboard the Arkbird and was involved in talks for the development of the International Space Station.[8]
