History

Around 2080 (common era), Humanity began moving its population off of earth into a large number of O'neill Cylinder space colonies at various Lagrange Points under the Aegis of the Earth Federation. Eventually an ideology arose among some of the colonies calling for independence of colonies, with each Lagrange point becoming an independent state, an ideology exposed by Zeon Zum Deikun. This led to the creation of the Side 3 Zeon Republic in 0058UC, which lobbied for independence. The Republic was prevented from achieving independence due to economic reasons until 0068UC after Diekum's death (possibly by assassination). After which control of the republic was assumed by Degwin Sodo Zabi, who began a military buildup for an eventual declaration of independence.

This declaration was made in 0079 of the Universal Century and soon saw a considerable nuclear exchange between Zeon and the Federation. This exchange included a Colony Drop on Australia and saw both sides loose about half their total population. After this exchange, both sides signed the antarctic treaty which forbid themselves from using NBC weapons or Colony Drops. During this time, Zeon launched an Invasion of earth.

Territory

The Principality of Zeon was based at the Side 3 Lagrange Point and had a population of about 400 million, this was reduced to 200 Million in the nuclear exchanges in the opening stages of the war.
