What sort of government will Mars have?
I believe some time in the near future, man will settle on Mars. But when or if they do what sort of political system will they run under? They will only be dependent on the earth for food for the first decade or so. As coming up with a sustainable food source will be a major priority.

I imagine some sort of live stock will have to be breed on the planet. Pollinating insects and birds would need to be included as well. Will geneticly altered animals need to be produced to survive once a viable ecosystem on an alien planet?

I imagine it would be close to Americas succession from England. Just (hopefully) not as violent.

Mars will be an Amish colony.

Idea

I don't know what kind of government it would be but here's an idea. Maybe since Mars is orange and trump is orange we could send him there. He would blend in with the landscape and not be so noticeable.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

It'll be run like the ISS until it becomes viable to actually terraform it.

It will probably look a lot like a more spartan Antarctica. A bunch of research outposts. I doubt people will permanently settle there for the same reason nobody is permanently settling in far more friendlier Antarctica - at least not willingly.

We'll have to forego having bees and birds until we have an ecology that can sustain them. They will have to be phased in as we give up the job of pollinator in their favor.

Probably an oligarchy. The lesser developed countries of Earth will not be heard from.

Hi,

With a bit of luck some aliens will get there first and build a wall to keep us out. Shocking
