Countdown to Doomsday XXVc
Mars was settled by RAM as the first colonization of another planet by humans. Mars is a center of trade and industry for the entire solar system. RAM has such tight control over the workings of the planet that the names “RAM” and “Mars” are used almost interchangeably. RAM wields power throughout the whole solar system, as demonstrated by their financial investments, military presence, and political clout on almost all the other planets and bodies.
The Russo-American Mercantile, or “RAM”, occupies Mars, and is the largest superpower in the solar system. In the 25th century, RAM is headed by Simund Holzerhein, a very wealthy Martian. From within the central command of RAM, Holzerhein can rule with the benefits of his massive information network around him. Those within RAM are either born into a high position or have worked up form the bottom to no higher than middle management. Though most RAM employees consider themselves to be good, much of the solar system considers the organization to be corrupt and evil.
