Tellus/Time Zones

From Cube Studios Wiki

A time zone is an area that observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial and social purposes. Time zones tend to follow the boundaries between countries and their subdivisions instead of strictly following longitude, because it is convenient for areas in frequent communication to keep the same time.

All time zones are defined as offsets from Aligned Global Time (AGT), ranging from AGT-13:00 to AGT+12:00. The offsets are by in increments of 1 hour.

The concept of daylight savings time, or the shifting of clocks forward by an hour in summer months, was thought up around the mid 1930s as a way to have more daylight during normal day hours. This was quickly called out as a major health hazard by multiple governments and organizations over concerns of the effects of losing an hour of the day in spring and needing to change the bodies sleep schedule to match and was never implemented anywhere.

History

The concept of time zones were first conceptualized as a way to keep a steady schedule for trains traveling across the continent. The first to establish time zones was Santa Maria in response to train collisions over bad timesheets in the 1860s. Other countries were quick to follow, and by the 1890s each country had their own set of time zones.

These early time zones were not coordinated with each other in any way, and by 1943 the United Sovereign Nations had stepped in and made a global list of coordinated time zones. All USN members at the time adopted the new time zones, and any countries that was not part of the USN were eventually forced to adopt them or have extremely bad issues doing trade with other countries.
