@Willy Vereb If you mean the world map, that's my bad entirely. I just posted it up. If not the map, could you explain further?
Rifts, mysterious, ancient anomalies that have existed for all of time. No beginning, no end, they simply just are. We don’t know why we, out of countless others were chosen by the rifts, but we have, and now, we’re forced to call a new world home. A world birthed by countless dimensional tears in the fabric of the multiverse. Thousands, maybe even millions, of chunks of land from alternative timelines, alien worlds, worlds beyond our comprehension, all smashed together to forge an untamed world of danger, mystery, adventure, and war.

Much time has passed since the world was forged, we have, and those that came before and after, have come to accept that this is our new home, many communities rose, and begun dotting the untamed landscape. Those that had the resources and power, erected great walled cities to defend against the elements, raiders, and rival powers. Once what resembled civilization was established, no matter the world, timeline, or universe, all peoples of the multiverse share one common trait, that we will always turn on one another.

Welcome to Riftworld! A Character/Nation rp set in the interdimensional dumping ground of the multiverse. Home to all sorts of people and races, a mysterious world that holds many secrets, a world where magic and technology co-exist. What path will you take in these trying times?

If anyone has any questions, I’ll gladly answer.

May there be mercy on mankind for his sins

Days after the Earth's destruction. It was a time of great mourning, for the Earth, the billions of people caught in the blaze of a thousand suns, and the countless more faithful of the Church that had taken their own lives in sheer grief. So much death in a matter of days. Arcadia was sent rocking as riots broke out within major cities across the planet. Such a calamity could not be let aside, the Gaian Church leadership having recused themselves from public view since the incident, discussing plans on the future and their next course of action. The Colonial government, however, was insistent that the Church bring their congregation to order, to stop the continued violence gripping Arcadia. The Primarch was much obliged to speak to all the faithful, for them to receive a message of vital importance.

-----------------------------

Colonial Governor’s Office, Capital City of Athena
Governor Horis, along with the rest of the colonial cabinet huddled around his desk as they all glued their eyes to the large projected screen presented in front of them, live footage of the mass at the Gaian Grand Cathedral in the Capital. Thousands gathered around the structure, all awaiting to hear word from His Holiness. The crowds started roaring once the Primarchal Guard stepped out into the light, quikly followed by the Primarch himself, waving to the people as he made his way to the edge of the balcony, overlooking the large crowd below him. The crowd continued to cheer and holler until the Primarch rasied both arms high up, instant silence filling the air.
" My people.” He begun. “Children of Gaia. we stand on the precipice of a dark, and cruel age. Our homeworld, Gaia’s firstborn, has been taken from us…”

Governor Horis watched with great anticipation and heavy anxiety, sweat creeping down his face. “Get on with it.” The governor mumbled to himself.

“I understand your pain, your tears.” The primach continued. “And in the days past, we have lost too many brothers and sisters out of grief and violence.” He paused a moment, to gulp, and resumed. “The Prophet Tobias, my dear mentor, would teach that tragedy should be a time of both mourning, and meditation. To shut oneself out from the world, and find inner peace, and forgiveness.”
In a premature moment, the Governor and his cabinet celebrated, clapping and wooing. “The old man may just saved us one hell of a headache. “ The top Commander of the colonial militia spoke.

Governor Horis stood up from his chair to stretch the stress away. “Alright ladies and gents, get to your stations and resume as normal.” Horis ordered. “Once we settle things here, I’ll get in contact with whoever’s left in Sol for any vital updates, we got one hell of restructuring to follow.”

“However..” The Primach continued, his tone changed.”

“Uh…sir.” One of the cabinet members spoke up. “The feed hasn’t cut..he’s still going.”

“What?..”

“The folly of mankind has brought Earth to her to destruction. This will not stand! The Confederacy has failed as stewards of the Earth, they have failed to prevent such a calamity. The time of meditation is past, my brothers and sisters, the time of the confederacy…has past..”

Governor Horis’ face was invisible red with rage. “That son of a bitch! What the hell does he think he doing?!!?”

“This wasn’t part of the agreement…” The Militia Commander said. The cheers grew even louder, the people chanting “GAIA VULT! GAIA VULT! GAIA VULT!”

“The Great Mother wills it my people!” The Primarch shouted out, almost like he was possessed. “These heathens will know suffering! The Earth will have her vengeance! I call upon all to join me! I declare a crusade upon all who stand in our path! RISE UP! MY PEOPLE! RISE UP AND WE WILL CLAIM THE STARS!”
I second that, and we got plenty of room for more!
Gaian State of Arcadia


Location

Summary: A small slice of paradise out in far corners of the Western Froniter. The Arcadian State was the result of decades of a slow, insidious takeover of the local religion, the Gaia Church, an evolution of a now defunct Gaia-centric cult that had grew in influence on the planet over the decades, incorporating elements of Old Earth-based religions to craft their own. Now the Gaians have established a theocracy in their corner of the Western Frontier, and set their plan in motion to embark on a great crusade to enact the will of Gaia.
Resources:
The Arcadian State is separated into several dominating institutions.

  • The Central Government: The last trace of the Confederacy on Arcadia. In theory, it functions as the more secular portion of the Arcadian State, responsible for maintain the everyday functions of Arcadia, as well as law enforcement. In truth however, it it is but a shallow husk of its former self, serving the whims, and in turn, as an extension of the Gaia Church.
  • The Church of Gaia: Acting both as the State Church and the ruling Government of Arcadia. The Gaia Church main tenants is the worship of the personification of Mother Earth, Gaia, as a living Goddess.
  • The Arcadian Crusade: The combined military forces of Arcadia. The Crusade is an amalgamation of the former colonial militia and other assorted enforcers, various faithful civilian volunteers, Arcadian Xeno auxiliaries, and members of the Church's militant arm, the Order of Our Lady's Most Sincere Servicemen, or the Sincere Order as they're often referred to.


Administration:


Strengths:
Dea Vult: The Dark Age brought about with the Confederacy's near collapse and the destruction of Earth has brought about a wave of fanaticism within the Arcadian State, leading to many very eager faithful to join the cause of the Crusade of the Western Frontier.

Blessings of Gaia: The colony of Arcadia was, and is renowned of the bioengineering research its minds have often delved to, often leading to surprising and beneficial results. Such results include Superfoods to properly feed the colonists and import to other worlds in the Confederacy, effective medical materials and the like. In these current uncertain times, the bioengineering research teams, at the request of the Church, have begun using their minds for military applications. The military Research resulting in a semi-regenerative alloy, bioengineered from the extremely dense chitin of the Northern Jade Strider, a rather large species of insect.

Papal Authority: As is the nature of any religion, the Church of Gaia's reach extends far beyond the Arcadian Borders, many going into the shadows, both missionaries and converts alike serving as the eyes and ears of the Church through known space. When the Primarch speaks of something he wishes to see on a grand scale, it seems to have weight outside of the jurisdiction of their own lands and into others, or at the very least his word and intentions travel far.

Weaknesses:
Keep it green: The Gaia Church makes it a priority to preserve the natural serenity of Arcadia, however, this has led to crippling industrial reforms that keep in mind the carbon footprint that is left. Their meticulous new policies include but not limited to ensuring that the recycling industry is bolstered, that carbon emissions from vehicles and factories are kept in check and regulated, and with other standards of practice meant to help the environment. In many ways this helps Arcadia stay beautiful and mitigates pollution; however the industry in Arcadia struggles to conform to these standards while still being financially viable, leading to slower production time all across the board.

Fanatical Ignorance: Many of the most devout and zealous followers of the Gaian church often have their heads buried in the sand and are not entirely cognizant of the larger picture of things. Though they will interminably listen and abide by the holy authority over them they often lack the critical thinking and capacity for discussion about whether or not things are as they ought to be, and often are not open to the conversation; this is a roadblock for those who wish to pause and ponder as well as foreigners who do not have such an obsession over the church of Gaia and wish to forego different solutions.

Propensity For Peace: Not all share the bloodlust of the Crusade, a portion of the populace and some of those within the Church see the Crusade as a perversion of the First Prophet Tobias' teachings. The predecessor's of the Church had expressed that pacifism was the way to be one with Gaia. These differences on Church doctrines has led to some divisions that hinder the Crusade to some capacity, although they move with the approval of His Holiness, the disapproval from the masses proves to be a morale breaker.


@Zombiedude101That's pretty much the gist of it, what remains of the confederacy is guarding Sol like a fortress.
