Meanwhile, On Earth...
In "Nothing Succeeds Like Failure," set before the end of the twentieth century, the head of NASA remains accountable to Senators and Congressmen who we assume, not having been told otherwise, still serve the United States.
In "The Rogue":
time has passed - we are at least well into the twenty first century;
a newly elected North American government deploys space battleships;
the Social Justice party ("Essjays") is in power;
there is a President and a Congress;
there are large corporations "'...like Systemic Developments...'" (p. 67)
That's all for now, folks, but I will keep an eye on Terrestrial politics.
