It doesn't matter which sponsor you choose for this, but if you want a recommendation it would be Russia. Russia doesn't really set up well for anything else and at least you'd have some resources sitting around from the playing as Russia trophy.

Once you hit 100 colonists you will get a message that EsoCorp is sending rovers. You can repair the rovers as they break down to get funding, but the only EsoCorp rover that really matters is scanning the anomaly under one when it comes up.

You will then be given a couple options. Expose them, take a bribe, do nothing. Do nothing ends the story and when I tried take a bribe it didn't pop so expose them to be safe.

A couple dialogue boxes will pop up that don't affect the trophy. After the trial there will be a 15 day window and then EsoCorp will send attack rovers at you. Research the defense turrets research IMMEDIATELY and build defense turrets around your entire base. A couple rovers will come from all directions. The rovers will attack the turrets and the turrets attack the rovers. Repair the turrets that are destroyed and take out the second wave. It says you have the option to repair the rovers that are attacking to help in the defense but in my experience all the rovers were destroyed outside of drone hub range so I couldn't repair them without going to each one with a command rover, so I just salvaged them.

After the last attack rover is destroyed this will pop. Note that attack rover can't scale cliffs, so if one ends up in a valley it will stay there until you build defense turrets close enough to attack it.
