This article is about the human Inner Colony. For the political position, see Minister (title).
Minister is a human colony governed by the Unified Earth Government, located among the Inner Colonies. Regarded as a "tough world", the planet was one of the few remaining active colonies that remained unknown to the Covenant and undamaged following the end of the Human-Covenant War in 2552. The little information of the colony, even among the United Nations Space Command, may have been what saved it from the Covenant.
Minister was the homeworld of Spartan-II Jerome-092, who was born in 2511 to a poor family in the infamous Palaikos borderlands, an undeveloped portion of the planet known for its high crime rates. Morton evacuated to Minister after Miridem was glassed in 2544, along with numerous other refugees from the war.
