Orbiter Solar Nations
Orbiter Solar Nations is a simulation of what interplanetary politics and conflict may be like within the Solar System in a few hundred years time. The idea was originally invented by Janez "DocHoliday" Vidmar on DanSteph's forum, and consists of various factions, or nations, controlling different parts of the solar system.
There are many different nations in the OSN community:
