If I remember correctly, Bright was the only White Base crew member other than
Amuro who knew that Sayla was the erstwhile Artesia Som Daikun. Although her
brother, then known as Quattro Vezina, announced his identity as Cassoval Lem
Daikun and Char "Red Comet" Aznable at the Dakar Deliberative Assembly on 16
November 0087, he didn't mention his interim alter ego as Edward Maas, big
brother to Sayla. Sayla even listened to that broadcast and decided not to get
involved in her brother's latest escapade.
That's not to say that Federation spooks couldn't figure it out or that Char
didn't let something slip in one of the many interviews he gave while promoting
Neo Zeon's claim to the Sweetwater colony and so on. But a better motivation on
the part of the Federation government would be a desire to lay hands on Sayla's
share of Char's gold, which he was spreading around quite openly in exchange for
Axis and other means to his end. They'd have no way of knowing that Sayla had
long since bequeathed her share in equal parts to the White Base crew, nor would
they be likely to believe the story if they heard it.
As of UC 0088, Sayla has earned her medical degree and become a doctor. Her
subsequent actions may thus be influenced by her Hippocratic oath, whose primary
tenet is to do no harm. If you regarded her as a pacifist before, it would go

Not much, as there's never been any settlements on Mars, other than a base
established by Zeon revenants, which remained hidden for over forty years.
The Jupiter Empire was pretty much a mystery until Crossbone Gundam and, even
there, it remains pretty mysterious.
