United Empire of Earth (UEE)
Governor of Terra: 2624-2635 Senator of Terra: 2635-2638
Assan Kieren (2584 - 2639?) was a Human politician representing Terra (Terra III) who publicly opposed the United Empire of Earth’s pro-military agenda and then disappeared under still-unexplained circumstances. He was elected a governor of Terra in 2633. In 2638, Kieren achieved notoriety across the UEE when he called for Terra to hold a vote of sovereignty that would allow it to separate from the UEE. The UEE’s propaganda machine under the Messers responded by working to discredit Kieren, and his referendum failed. The ensuing controversy ended Kieren's political career. He disappeared the following November.
