The History of Earth
In the earliest days of the Empire, when its land claims consisted mostly of fictional planets, its territories were never traditionally divided into colonies. It was only after 1997 that the Imperial government began to truly organize its lands, and the declaration of Mars Colony marked the start of the Empire's true colonial era. It could be argued, though, that since the territory that would come to be known as Earth have remained unchanged since the Empire's earliest days, Earth was truly the Empire's first claim. This is supported by the fact that many of the first citizens ever to join the Empire would come to live in Earth, even as "funnier" colonies came to be accepted. It is with tremendous pride that, today, Earthlings throughout the Empire membership in the Empire's oldest and finest realm.
