Founded in 2002, this space research corporation aims to introduce humans to space travel and to secure a monopoly over all space exploitation. During the crisis of 2012 - 2014 it absorbed the old NASA structure, inheriting all its patented space technology.


In 2034 the company completed construction of the first orbiting city. In 2035 the first permanent base on the Moon was founded. When the Great War broke out in 2084, the entire orbital city population was moved to the Moon to a newly built city, LUNA1. The Lunar Corporation then broke off all contact with the Earth, essentially becoming an independent country. A few years later, they started construction of another city, LUNA2. By 2150 the population of both cities had swollen to 233,000.
