Call it luck, call it determination, or call it down-right-cheating, PanOceania has the distinction of being the premiere source for technology and progress throughout the Human Sphere. Did they really earn it, or did they just step on the shoulders of giants and reaped the rewards of “finders keepers”?
It was up to other nations to fill the gap that was left and most of these were countries that lined the Pacific Ocean. Australia, Indonesia, and some South American countries began to ally and form an economic conglomerate. Soon others began to join from around the world and the world was quickly divided into two distinct factions, the PanOceania and their rivals the Yu Jing. Along with these events a new tool was developed for Humanity called Aleph and its creations and survival were heralded with the help of Pan Oceania’s top scientists.
Despite some growing pains between the various factions of Humanity, Pan Oceania holds the most territory among the colonized planets discovered in space. This is both a blessing and a curse in the current age. The blessing is that they hold the traditions and passions of the 21st century western world; Christianity, unlimited progress, capitalism, etc. The curse however makes them the greatest target for everyone else. It’s lonely on the top, and Pan Oceania knows this too well.
The first Sectoral list for Pan Oceania I’ll review are the Military Orders of the Church. With the rise in tensions between various Human factions and the arrival of two alien species, the militant orders were reopened. Originally they were intended to protect members of the faith and holy sites but quickly their prowess saw them moved around all areas of the Pan Oceania territories. Powered by faith and the best technology, these warriors are called upon when only the best will do. Heavy armor, swords, and guns! What else do you need!?
