Eve backstory

Set great many more than 21,000 years in the future, the background story of Eve Online tells that humanity, having used up most of Earth's resources through centuries of explosive population growth, began colonizing the rest of the Milky Way. In turn, this quest also led to competition and fighting over available resources as it did on Earth, but everything reformed with the discovery of a natural wormhole leading to an unexplored galaxy named "New Eden". Dozens of colonies were formed, and a structure was built to stabilize the wormhole that bridged the intergalactic colonies with the rest of human civilization, a large gateway bearing the name "EVE". However, when the natural wormhole unexpectedly collapsed, it devastated the gate. Cut off from the rest of humanity and supplies from Earth, the colonies of New Eden were left stricken and disconnected from one another; some disappeared entirely. Over the eons the descendants of the colonists managed to carry on and rebuild their own societies, but the memories and science of humanity's origins as well as their own from Earth and the Milky Way became lost. Five large distinct societies rose to prominence from the colonies, each leading into interstellar spaceflight-capable civilizations. The joint currency is eve isk. The states based around these colonies describe the five major factions in Eve Online: the Amarr Empire, the Caldari State, the Gallente Federation, the Minmatar Republic and the Jove Directorate.
