The government of the Earth Republic is based on the U.S. Constitution and led by remnants of the United Nations. The Republic is led by President Nelson Miles, the Earth Republic Senate and the General Assembly. Columbia is divided up into at least four provinces, each run by a Representative. Underneath the representatives are territorial governors.

History

The government was formed in 2031 after the Battle of Defiance and the disbanding of the Earth Military Coalition. ("Earth Military Coalition Confidential", "Loading screen") Berto Mercado was a key figure in converting the EMC into the Earth Republic. The Republic accepted a large number of refugees after its founding. ("Inside Defiance: Episode 13") In 2046 Von Bach Industries in partnership with the Earth Republic planned an expedition to the Bay Area. ("VBI Recruitment") The E-Rep forces in the Bay Area began an assault on Dark Matter forces in San Francisco, defeating most of them. ("Main Mission:Radio Silence", "Defiance") A rogue element of the Earth Republic, led by Colonel Hampton Gretch was sent to the Bay Area to find and reactivate Project Piper. Their forces were stopped and Project Piper was destroyed. ("Data Recorder:Reactivation of Project Piper", "Episode Mission:Paying the Piper")

Another rogue faction led by Colonel Galen Marsh went to Defiance and seized the McCawley Mines in order to locate the Kaziri located underneath. When Marsh was killed, E-Rep forces took control of the town. ("Everything Is Broken") The Kaziri terraformed New York City, killing its citizens and turning the city into a jungle. ("All Things Must Pass", "I Almost Prayed") The Earth Republic was seriously crippled with the loss of New York. ("Main Mission:Season 3: The First Expedition") Most of the E-Rep forced in Defiance left the town shortly after New York was destroyed. ("The World We Seize") The E-Rep was considered gone by this point. ("The Beauty of Our Weapons")
