* SpaceColdWar: Three-way, between the Jovian Republic, the Planetary Consortium, and the Titanian Commonwealth. The Autonomists aren't organized enough to really count, but generally oppose the former two and are friendly toward Titania [[note]]one high-rep anarchist is personally allied with Titania, allowing them to protect Locus and the Jovian Trojans from the Jovian Republic's military[[/note]]. The Lunar-Lagrange Alliance pretty much keeps to itself, and the Morningstar Constellation is busy trying to figure out what it wants to be and who it wants to side with (if anyone).

** Officially, all Exhumans are this - ranging from edgy, rich teenagers in amped-up biomorphs practicing {{Social Darwinism}}, sociopathic elitists who wish to literally EatThePoor, to nihilists who ''hate everyone else''. Some homebrews on the official forum avert it by making some Exhumans neutral or even vaguely friendly towards non-Exhumans.

** The various MARG (future MMO) listed in ''Sunward'' are obvious shout outs, like [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft War of Wizards]], [[TabletopGame/BattleTech Mecha Mash]] (which explicitly references Clans and the Star League), and [[Franchise/StarTrek Starfleet Command]]. Innsmouth Nights is explicitly stated to be based on the CthulhuMythos.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreRefugee: In a setting that's very transhumanist and anarchist, the Jovian Republic is essentially a mostly-typical MilitaryScienceFiction faction (militarized, one of the factions that closely resemble late 20th century and early 21st century life, technology that's essentially modern tech amped up), while various hackers and hypercorps climbed out of a William Gibson cyberpunk story.

Added DiffLines:

** Nova York is, well, New York. Perhaps unsurprisingly, a lot of its inhabitants ''aren't'' refugees/infugees from the destruction of New York, and its emphasis on the arts makes it more like the hipster portions of Brooklyn and Harlem.

** The alliance of Minervan Fleet and Special Intelligence Secretariat. The former is a Jovian deserter fleet of military men who wanted a more pro-active and permanent policy against transhumanity, while the latter are a former Jovian Space Force Intelligence personel who lost the power struggle in Jovian politics. Both of them see themselves as the true Jovian government.

Both of them see themselves as the true Jovian government. The Minervan Fleet works like a fleet of {{Space Pirate}}s, attacking transhuman habitats and ships and performing terrorist attacks, while being even more hardcore than the most conservative of Jovians - even the loss of a limb is, at best, replaced by a prosthetic no more technological than a pegleg.

* DirectLineToTheAuthor: The majority of the fluff is presented through the various in-universe reports, presentations, briefings, debriefings, interrogations and such, mostly from the Autonomist[=/=]Firewall perspective.
