The United Nations Interstellar Settlement Corps[1] (UNISC), formerly known as the United Nations Interplanetary Corps[2] (UNIC), was a branch of the United Nations responsible for the protection of Earth and the Sol System and, later, humanity's extrasolar colonies.

History[]

The UNISC was formed by the core members of the United Nations, namely the USA, the European Union, Russia, India, Japan, and the Central Confederation of Africa.[3] The organisation was originally known as the United Nations Interplanetary Corps, reflecting its jurisdiction within the Sol System and over the near-Earth colonies. However, as mankind began reaching ever further into deep space and establishing numerous extrasolar colonies, the organization's remit was similarity expanded to involve the policing and provision of security for these distant settlements. As such, by 2117,[4] it had been renamed the United Nations Interstellar Settlement Corps to reflect its expanded role.

During its early history, the UNISC was engaged in a cold war with the Chinese/Asian-Nation Cooperative, who were their major military and political rival within the Sol system.
