Extract from the Black Earth timeline on the UEF Institution Act,
2035, August 13th - The United Earth Federation is instituted with the UN assembly upvoting it with 74% for, 15% against and 11% abstained. The countries that constituted the UEF are the following; USA, all the countries of Europe, Russia, Japan, China, India, South Africa, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Singapore, Morocco, Malta and Israel. The rest of the countries are either put in queue to apply for membership or denied membership altogether. This leads to several nations leaving the UN and grants them the unofficial but prevalent name “The Exiles” or “Exiled Nations”. Relations between the UEF and the Exiled Nations will never recover.
