The society of the earth is divided into three classes according to the law. The individual classes are delimited by hard limits. Relationships between members of different classes are forbidden, and there are no rights against members of a higher class. A felony is only a felony if it is committed by a member of a lower class, to a person of the same or higher class. Membership in a higher class must be bought and there are annual taxes due, if you cannot pay these, you become a pleb. In addition to the admission fees, the approval of a leading member of the class is also required.
Martis - prosperity and fame
Martis, a colloquial term for Martians, are the highest class of the earth's population. Since they have to abide by the laws and commandments of humanity on Mars, most of them let off steam on Earth. There, without annoying laws, they can operate their production facilities, dispose of rebellious workers, sabotage competition, occupy building land with armed force and carry out experiments on the population. A popular practice is, for example, to have mercenaries clear building land for a factory and then have the costs paid by surviving residents and/or their families.
Militis - The Armed Arm
Militis, the class of soldiers and astronauts, are all members of armed organizations, except the Guard. They've all gone through either the Academy of Spacecraft or a military training facility. As armed arm of the Martis, they are the ones who keep order on earth and prevent overpopulation. Characteristic for experienced members of this class are emotional coldness and psychopathic personalities, as a result of their work. Besides the classical police tasks and the dirty work for the Martis, their main task is the containment of epidemics and population control. Disease control is referred to as humane action, in fact it is genocide. A quarantine zone will be set up in a 50-250 km radius around a source of disease and any form of biological matter will be eliminated by neutron bombs. Subsequently, all survivors are executed and population control is carried out within the same framework. In addition to this military role, military personnel also perform functions in medical care, pioneering work and as ship crews. For many plebs, the way to become a militis is the only chance to make an ascent.
Karteris - Worker
Kateris are all people who have a work permit. This work permit is issued by Martis and in rare cases by Militis. In addition to their work in factories, houses, etc., they can also take on military tasks as members of the guard. Although their condition is not safe, their health is taken care of and they have little claim to support from the military physicians. Since an education is expensive and time consuming, this way is chosen above all by children of the Karteris.
Plebs - People without rights
The masses of people are plebs, all they have is their lives. Due to the automation of industry, high birth rates and a lack of education, their chances of advancement are virtually non-existent. The at least of them die before their 30th birthday, either from illness, murdered by the militis, starved to death or as a result of environmental pollution. The main purpose of most plebs is to have many children early and to hope that one of them will make the ascent. Since they are prohibited from regular work, they have only three options, prostitution, crime or joining a military organization. Basic medical care is guaranteed by hospitals of the Federation of the Jupiter Moons. However, 32% of newborns are confiscated and brought to the Federation, but there is a good chance of surviving childbirth. Any other form of treatment is free, except death, in which case the body is retained as payment.
The class of the plebs is mostly described by a quotation, a general of civil wars: "All the plebs has is his life and the number of his descendants, they are the masses of worthless individuals born only for one purpose: "To die at the front as cannon fodder or to maintain the human reserve pool."
