* ''Fanfic/FriendsOfASolarEmpire'', being ([[CrossOver partly]]) a ''SinsOfASolarEmpire'' fanfic, has very little Canon backstory for any of the Sins factions. So the author ''made one''.

* The Land of Ooo from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' is a mild example. Ooo is meant to be AfterTheEnd, arising from the remains of human civilization as we understand it, and there are hints towards this in almost every episode, including the opening sequence. Examples include mispronunciations of names like "Mozart" and "[[TheMarxBrothers Groucho]]," and there's also a NurseryRhyme that seems to be about mushroom clouds.

* Andrey Livadny's ''Literature/TheHistoryOfTheGalaxy'' is a vast [[TheVerse 'verse]] with over 30 novels, novellas, and short stories (and counting). The order of writing does not always match up with the universe timeline (although, currently, he seems to be primarily adding to the end). Most novels have unique characters, although there are story arcs that include several of the books. There's a reason the series includes the word "history", especially since many novels deal with alien races, most of which predate humanity by millions of years and some have stopped counting at billions. One novel even goes into the origin of life itself, and another off-handedly reveals that "true" origin of Christianity. Several fan-based web [=MMORPGs=] have been created based in the 'verse, especially set during the First Galactic War, a 30-year period of constant "technogenic" warfare between two human powers, a period so devastating that its effects are still felt 1000 years later.

And now one universe isn't enough for the author, since he's expanding it to TheMultiverse with several parallel realities with completely different histories and races intersecting.

Added DiffLines:

* The creators of the ''VideoGame/{{Ravenmark}}'' series did that with their first game, which was largely story-driven with a map of the world, a different calendar, backstories of the different factions, the pantheon, etc. Unfortunately, the sequel is largely multiplayer-oriented, so not much is added in terms of background material.

Added DiffLines:

* J. Zachary Pike does this in ''Literature/TheDarkProfitSaga'', even though it only consists of one novel so far. Yet the book features a FantasyWorldMap at the end, as well as a glossary of terms. The author's website has a blog with detailed information on the various races, clans, and organizations in the world of Arth. There's a pantheon of gods, the origins of humankind, an ancient war between good and evil, and even the beginnings of a ConLang.
