The Great Colonization War (unofficially and generally incorrectly referred to as World War III) was a military conflict lasting from 1985 to 1998, which involved some of the world's nations, including all of the great powers. The reason for the military conflict was mainly due to religion and power. The two sides of the war eventually formed two opposing military alliances, the Pro-Lunars ("Lunies") and the Pro-Selenics ("Selenics") (this was due to the fact most of the opposing nations were fighting to prevent colonies from taking over land on Luna, which goes against Selenism).

The war had put the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States of America to a hold. Since the Soviet Union and the United States were on the same side, Ronald Regan had ended the war to avoid the interference of the Pro-Lunar countries alliance.

After years of intense battle there was a stalemate. It wasn't until the stalemate that helped France and the United Nations finally write the Space Colonization Treaty.
