The United States:
 
Under the leadership of John F. Kennedy the United States has started to change to a more social country. With more rights for the African American population and better healthcare for the poor and elderly. Due to this, the people look up to their president: they support him in all his ventures and they all applaud the idea of the great tower to the moon.
 
The military has pulled out of Vietnam in order to channel all the necessary resources towards the construction of the great tower, and to put a man on the moon before the Soviets.

 ussr_prop The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics:
 
Under the leadership of Nikita Khrushchev the USSR has made the first attempt at sending a human into outer space. They launched the satellite “Sputnik” into orbit. In turn, the US started spying more on the Soviets and in retaliation, the USSR announced that they will be the first to put a man on the moon and claim it as their own.
 
Focusing all resources that they have into the construction project, Nikita Khrushchev will do everything to put a Soviet Man on the moon before the Americans do.
