The Hero of Terra was an award given out to the individual or individuals thought to have done the most for Terra in the year.
It was founded in 2310 by the Chairman of the Royal Bank of Keymon, Frederick Bell, but was not awarded until 2312.
The award lasted for 14 years until it was forced to disbnand in 2326 by the Keymon government. This came after intense Deltarian pressure following the award being given to the controversial Alexander Neesam. Since 2326 no move has been made to ressurect the award most likely because the Deltarian government has officially placed it on its Vendetta list. Until September 2463 When the World Court, re-founded by John Hagee of the Christian Zionist Party of Beiteynu, formed with the old Hero of Terra foundation it was reestablished. As for funding it is in the prosses of being funded by the bank of Beiteynu

The Hero of Terra award received criticism throughout its history. Three winners in particular received criticism: the 2314, 2315 and 2317 winners. Adrian Bertoni was criticised for not being well known enough; Ann Hurles was criticised by many conservative nations for being female, and the Tadraki Relief Fund was criticised by the government of Beiteynu, because they believe the credentials given them are false (Moshe Ne'eman of Ma'avak in Beiteynu declared "This is ridiculous. They claim these people are heros but they are nothing more than a part of the growing epidemic of anti-semitism. This organisation spends its time aiding the very people that seek to complete destruction of the Terra wide Jewish population. This is a joke!").
Many groups Deltaria continuously nominated Czár Sebastian I since 2313 (in fact, he received the most nominations of any individual) but never received an award. Nuncirists also condemned the awards as "Crimethink", and the 2318 recipient, Radio Free Terra, was banned in Solentia; this ban has since been lifted by the 2323 recipient, Itzal Zorion.
- Gishoto (2313 and 2319) and Mordusia (2315 and 2321) were the only nations to have received two Hero of Terra awards. Dorvik received two partial awards - 2312 and 2318 - but this added up to just 5/6 of an award.
- Eight individuals, three sets of two people and four organizations won the Hero of Terra.
