So, let us lay out some clear guidelines as to how a Star Settlement or one of Our Space Colonies will be established. And how such Land Grants are to be laid out. As well as how the Land Development should proceed (and be administered), from there.
*** And give you some directions on how to get a plot for yourself! ***
1. THRONE COLONIES (Royal Colonies): |
These are Star-Colonies set up by Our own (Spiritual) Realm and under the direct governmental control (and financing) of Our own K.I.C. Organization (and Our LAWS of God)--and for the rise of Our Future Astarian Nation. (Consequently, these should be the core or Our coming Interstellar Realm!)
| 2. ENTITLEMENT COLONIES (Noble Colonies):
These are space Colonies set up by Notable Individuals (Astridons or Celestial Nobles--see following Article on Our StarLords) but in co-operation and co-ordination with Our own K.I.C. Organization, and thus indirectly under Our control (and financing) through those Nobles who have sworn alligence to Our Realm (see Varangian Pledge)--hence giving them some autonomy or self-rule (though they will still be expected to uphold the LAWS of God, as is to be done throughout Our Realm). These would be on the old Mediavel model of Fiefdoms, requiring the Noble's allegiance to Our Realm (and Throne), in exchange for granting them the Land or Fief!
| 3. COMPANY COLONIES (Collectives or
Co-operatives Colonies): |
These are Star-Colonies set up by special groups: such as joint-stock-companies or collectives of entrepreneurial individuals (or settlement companies), but in fanchise or contract with Our own K.I.C. Organization, and thus semi-autonomous, yet still under Our Realm (and some financing) through those People (or their Companies) who have Chartered such an enterprise with Our Realm. Thus, we will give them some autonomy and self-rule (though they will be expected to uphold the LAWS of God, as is to be done throughout Our Realm).
However, given the need for help in Our Interstellar Settlement Program, We are willing to allow some individual initiative and variance, provided that they are willing to stay within the LAW and follow Our Interstellar Colonization guidelines. This will allow for a Settlement Program of a variety of Star-Colonies, based on differing Cultural themes--which may be more appealing to certain groups of people. (For a better understanding of the scope of this Cultural variance, and what is considered allowable, see Our Article on the KoReY HERITAGE WORLDS. For, you may just find one that you would love to help build!)
Some of these Star-Colonies may be led by Notable Individuals who may want to bring back some of the Old Ways or Old World that they use to enjoy (and recruit others to come and join them). Others may be formed by groups of people who may want a certain Cultural or Ethnic group to dominate in their Colony. Either of these is acceptable, provided that they stay within Our LAWS.
Other Star-Colonies will, no doubt, be formed for purely economical reasons. Either backed by the strong financing of some wealthy individual, who hopes to make a profit on his Interstellar venture, or by some collection of investors, hoping to get a good monetary return on the Land Development of the Colony that they funded to establish. These will also be acceptable, provided that they stay within Our LAWS.
Now, how will such Star-Colonies be divided up? Will sub-infeudation, as used in the Mediavel World, be a model? (And, let us look for our own individual place in this grand scheme of things!)
1. TOWNSHIPS LAND GRANTS (Or Shires, Sheriff Grants): |
The Core Settlement of this Land should be about 5 miles per side or approximately 25* square miles--with at least additional mile or two to either side (city size, below), plus, perhaps some suburbs and bordering lands for future growth (Counties).
| 2. CITY LAND GRANTS (Or Mayorial Grants):
The Core Settlement of these Lands about 7 miles per side or a grand total of approximately 49* square miles--with additional suburbs and border lands for future growth (Districts or Regions). Consequently, this Allotment (and growth Plan) ought to include various surrounding smaller satellite Township Grants (above) for future development by the larger settlement, giving an area of about 21 miles on a side or 231 square miles, total.
| 3. METRO LAND GRANTS (Or Metropolitan Areas):
The Core Settlement of this Land is about 9 miles per side or approximately 81* square miles--with additional suburbs and border lands for future growth (States, Provinces). This Allotment (and growth Plan) ought to include an adjacent band of various surrounding City Grants (above) plus an outer band of Township Grants (above) for future development by the larger settlement, giving about 35 miles to a side or 1,225 square miles.
4. PLANETARY LAND GRANTS (Or Global Areas): |
These are blocks of land consisting of a whole Planet, which in turn would have other Township, City, and Metro grants available within it, to sell or trade to other groups (sub-infeudation), or develop on their own.
| 5. SYSTEM LAND GRANTS (Or Solar Area):
These are even larger blocks of lands consisting of a whole Solar System, which in turn would have other Planet Grants within it (and Township, City, and Metro grants available within those), to sell or trade to other groups (sub-infeudation), or develop on their own.
| 6. CLUSTER LAND GRANTS (Or Star System Areas):
These are the largest blocks of land consisting of a whole Star Cluster, which in turn would have other System Grants within it--and Planetary Grants within those (as well as the Township, City, and Metro grants available within the Planets)--to sell or trade to other groups (sub-infeudation), or develop on their own.
*** (NOTE: However, those seeking the smaller grants, or individual parcels, will most likely have to obtain them from negociations with the larger Star-Colony Authority that has been given control of the Land, by K.I.C., for the area that the individual may like to settle in--for we are NOT a Real Estate Company!) ***
Moreover, we also expect that most Cluster Grants will probably be Throne Star-Colonies. With most System Grants probably being Noble Star-Colonies. And, most Planetary Grants will probably be Company Star-Colonies. However, this is not set in concrete and if good reason can be found for an exception, then let us be expedient, not dogmatic!
*Furthermore, in accordance with the model used on the American frontier, we hope you realize that KoReY will still retain every other square mile, within the Land Grant for use by its Realm, and the coming Astarian Government (and Throne). Thus, for example, of every Townhship Grant of 49 square miles, 24 of those will be reserved to KoReY (basically, every other square mile--unless other specifications are supplied for a different grouping of lots, such as to accomodate a Nobleman's land award), with the central square mile always being given as a gift to the future settlement! The same is true of ALL City and Metro Grants (even to those given for distribution to Noble Star-Colonies and Company Star-colonies).
Consequently, such an arrangement of dual or joint ownership of the Star-Lands forms a kind of Mediavel Partnership between the Star-Colony and KoReY (though limited by the terms of the Charter), primarily for mutual development and protection of said Lands. Thus, such a program insures that the Star-Colony will not be just dropped or abandoned by KoReY (and Our rising Astarian Nation), but We will continue to help and aid the settlement's growth, as that would then be a natural outcome, in order to benefit Our own Lands there!
Consequently, it should not be surprizing to think that VAST WEALTH is available to those who will catch the vision and begin their own entreperneurial programs to invest in Interstellar ventures!
Yes, if you stop to think about it, GREAT FORTUNES are waiting to be made by the diligent! And, perhaps, most obviously, on Land Deals on these Interstellar Properties We are making available through Our KoReY Star-Colony Grants! So, from Our view, the Interstellar Land Rush is already on! And the Interstellar Land Boom is about to begin in earnest. So, if you are thinking about real estate investments, what better place is there than out in Space. (Especially since Earth real estate is about to become worthless, under the growing threat of that coming nova!) So, contact us about what it takes to get a Star-Colony Grant and help us begin the needed Land development for Our Interstellar Program. (And your future profits!)
So, get a head of the pack! And, make those profits while they can be had. For, as the RUSH expands, those in first, stand to make the most money!!! (It will be land speculation's finest hour!)
