The White House, located in Olympus Village on Mars in the Sol system, is the official residence and workplace of the President of the Federation. The president holds press conferences and makes public statements from the White House. It is also used for formal dining, diplomatic receptions, social events, and other official functions.
The White House is the second such government structure to go by this name, the first being the residence in Washington, D.C. originally used by presidents of the United States of America on Earth. The first White House remained in use after the United States evolved into the United States of the Americas and then the Federation until sometime after 2325, when it was vacated and the Federation moved its capital from Washington to Olympus Village.
