Earth is the originating planet of Homo sapiens, the cradle of humanity. The Earthers have recently emerged from a long period of isolationism under the banner of the New Earth Concordat, also known as the New Earth Commonwealth or simply the NEC. The planet harbours at least ten billion souls, plus at least another billion in the Sol system. It is rumoured that Earth is on the verge of ecological collapse brought on through the overheated economy of the First Human Concordat, combined with a world war conducted during the isolationist years.
