USA + USSR start space race to put something into orbit.
USSR wins by getting a spy sat (Sputnik) above the USA without the USA's knowledge.
USA spies learn about the spy satellite after acquiring pictures of key USA buildings from space and USA panics thinking they may be able to put a weapons platform in orbit above the USA.
The USA proposes USSR to create an alliance where resources and information is shared.
The USSR agrees to join as long as they get equal control.
To make the sharing of information and resources easier the USA proposes a new language is created from 5 different existing languages (Mainly English) called TUFL (Technical User Friendly Language). Everyone would not have to covert to it immediately. But must teach it as a first language to all children and a second language to all people currently in education. Also all business within the UCE MUST be conducted in TUFL.
The USSR agrees on one condition that the USA pays off all of the USSR's debts.
The USA agrees as long as the USSR uses the same currency as the USA.
The USSR agrees to these terms and the UCE is born (United Continents Of Earth).
Russia & America share there technology with the UCE.
Shortly after the details of this new super alliance is revealed the current Prime Minister of the UK holds a vote to decide whether the UK will join.
The people of the UK decide to join the UCE with an 83% majority.
UCE starts to put satellites into space. - Currently up to here on modeling my second piece of technology. (A few more satellites to get back into modeling. ) WIP shortly.
