I might be missing a few things when I watched this series but I do have a question:

Did any of the nations ever started a space program?

With Britannia holding the top dog rank in technology, I wonder if anyone ever thought of space travel or creating ships or satellites to scan or glass enemy territories from beyond the atmosphere.

I don't think so. If they did, they'd have done that by now.

Granted, glassing enemy territories would be kind of stupid, as the Emperor's raiding them solely for the Thought Elevators.

Actually, I've always assumed that they had similar satelitte systems to ours. I mean, their communication networks are complex enough to pretty much require sattelitte transmissions. I seriously doubt that there are any orbital weapons platforms or such though.

(Note as to why satellites are required: They seem to have over the horizon transmissions to and from their airships, this can only be accomplished via satellites.)

There will be. Amazon.co.jp lists illustration dramas for the first 5 volumes. Volumes 6 to 9 are not available for preorder yet.

Kewell was one of Jeremiah's subordinates back in season one. The Valkyrie pilot who said his name, from what I heard, was his sister.

So they might have satellites already. I guess it's a start before creating other things that could lead to an orbital platform.

So, uh, no major power is interested in claiming Antarctica, despite its untapped resources?

Maybe both China and Britannia wanted it, so they couldn't decide this matter.

They aren't that stupid and powerful to just start a war with another Superpower.
And don't forget about Kangaroo and Penguins. And Koalas. They will pwn your ass.

Whay about the E.U. then? They're a siperpower and that didn't stop Britannia stomping on them. Or going to war with the UFN.

Well, the E.U. was faring well against them...until Suzaku showed up. They were only unlucky in that they had no world-renowned scientists on their side like Lloyd or Rakshata, or an elite unit like the Rounds.

So much for that 'top-class' general who was meant to be checking the Brits and their advance into northern Africa as well...

Strategy can never overcome realtime tactics, espically in super mecha shows.

I think you meant that Real-time tactics can always overcome Strategy in Super Robot Shows. I mean, that's the purpose of Super Robot.
"Oh no, that ONE robot again destroyed all my plans~" (c) any general in SRS.

The major combatants would be the Shoggoths and the Elder Things that inhabit Antarctica eons before humanity was even born.

BTW, in the world of Code Geass, is there a difference between a patriot and a terrorist?
