The Resource Wars was a series of armed conflicts fought between the Union of Colonial Republics and the Confederacy of Independent States in the late 25th Century in 2484 until 2508. The war was fought over the last remaining resources and resulted in the escelation of the conflict from Earth to the Human colonies and ended in a CIS victory.
During the 2470's, the global economy had collapsed as over 20% of countries in the world had went bankrupt and riots began to flood the world. Mass immigration to human colonies became the norm. Armed Conflicts began to rise and soon things got worse when human colonies campaigned for independence from Earth Gov rule. In 2484, a coalition of human colonies and human nations had merged and formed the Confederacy of Independent States and believed that each and every human colony had the right to be an independen nation just like on earth. In response the United Colonial Republics were formed and saught to keep all remaining Pro-Earth colonies under their control and saught to defeat the CIS and declared war when the planet Arxes Prime was invaded and annexed by CIS Forces and the Human colony was taken over and the Pro-Earth government toppled.
