In the distant past, humanity held immeasurable power and glory, but no longer. In the waning years of the 41st millennium, the game's central faction, the [[TheEmpire Imperium of Man]], is a [[{{Dystopia}} paranoid, fascist]] [[TheTheocracy theocratic state]] which spans the galaxy but is struggling mightily to maintain its grip on its territory. Its {{messia|nicArchetype}}h was [[Literature/HorusHeresy laid low by his most beloved son]] and has been [[DarkLordOnLifeSupport locked up on life support]] for more than ten millennia, [[AndIMustScream physically dead yet psychically conscious]]. The incomprehensibly vast [[ChurchMilitant Ecclesiarchy]] [[CorruptChurch commits horrible atrocities in his name (but against his philosophy)]] on an almost-daily basis. The {{Space Marine}}s, capricious, fanatical, [[BioAugmentation genetically engineered]] KnightTemplar {{Super Soldier}}s and the [[AmazonBrigade Sisters of Battle]], equally fanatical, [[KillItWithFire pyromaniacal]] [[ChurchMilitant battle nuns]] serve as the Imperium's special forces, while the [[RedShirtArmy Imperial Guard]], its ''trillions''-strong regular army, takes [[WeHaveReserves disregard for human life]] to new and interesting extremes. A futuristic [[StateSec Inquisition]] ruthlessly hunts down anyone with even the ''slightest'' taint of the [[TheHeretic heretic]], the mutant, or the [[FantasticRacism alien]], even going as far as [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroying entire planets]], ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill just to be sure]]''.

Science and technology have [[MedievalStasis scarcely progressed for ten thousand years]], partly because they are treated with fear, [[LostTechnology ignorance]] and [[CargoCult magical superstition]], and partly because the [[{{Cyborg}} Adeptus Mechanicus]], the secretive, [[CyberneticsWillEatYourSoul deranged]] [[MachineWorship machine cult]] that maintains the Imperium's technological base, [[OlderIsBetter by and large sees innovation as blasphemy against the wisdom of the ancients]]. The Warp, the Imperium's only means of FasterThanLightTravel, carries with it a good chance of [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace being ripped apart by daemons in more ways than one]], and [[HumanResources the souls of psychic humans]] are [[PoweredByAForsakenChild consumed in the thousands per day]] to not only power the Astronomican, the psychic navigation aid used to negotiate Warpspace, but to fuel the Emperor's life support mechanism.

As bad as the Imperium is, however, all the other major factions [[BlackAndGrayMorality are just as bad, if not far worse]]. The [[SpaceElves Eldar]], an [[{{Precursors}} ancient, mysterious]] and [[TheChessmaster manipulative]] race [[DyingRace nearly destroyed by the fallout from their ancestors' decadence]], are best known for contriving wars that see billions from other species dead to spare ''[[MoralMyopia mere]] [[ItsAllAboutMe thousands]]'' of their own that fate, while their depraved cousins, the [[EvilCounterpart Dark Eldar]], [[ForTheEvulz happily perpetuate]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath mass slaughter]] and ColdBloodedTorture, both trying to stave off the [[FateWorseThanDeath hellish afterlife]] looming over their entire species.

The [[BugWar Tyranids]], a [[HordeOfAlienLocusts mysterious, ever-hungering]] [[OutsideContextProblem extra-galactic race]] guided by a malevolent but [[ItCanThink highly intelligent]] HiveMind, are rampaging across the galaxy, [[PlanetEater consuming planets']] [[PlanetEater biospheres]] to evolve and become stronger. The [[KillerRobot Necrons]], TheRemnant of an ancient alien civilization transformed into vast legions of [[ClarkesThirdLaw incredibly advanced]], [[ImmortalityImmorality undying]], [[RobotWar living metal warriors]], are awakening after millions of years of slumber to reclaim a galaxy they see as rightfully theirs and scour away the taint of organic life.

The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]], a genetically-engineered warrior species [[AlienKudzu infesting]] every corner of the galaxy, [[AxCrazy cheerfully kill anything and anyone they come across]] -- including each other, if nothing better presents itself -- because it's [[AlwaysChaoticEvil literally hard-wired into their genetic code to do so]]... and because [[BloodKnight it's fun]]. The [[NaiveNewcomer T'au]], a comparatively small and young race with an insurgent [[TheAlliance cross-species empire]] on the galaxy's fringe, readily seek new allies through diplomacy, but are [[UnreliableNarrator reputed]] to absorb those who refuse through [[EarthShatteringKaboom orbital bombardment]], [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill concentration camps]] and possibly [[MassHypnosis mind]] [[HappinessInSlavery control]], [[WellIntentionedExtremist all to further]] [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans their philosophy of the "Greater Good"]].

Worst of all are [[TheLegionsOfHell the forces of Chaos]], which live and thrive in the Warp led by {{four|IsDeath}} [[GodOfEvil ruthless, destructive deities]], [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil are sustained by the emotions of living beings]], [[TheCorruption corrupt everything they touch]] and [[GreaterScopeVillain are the root cause of much of the setting's darkness]]. They are known for ripping [[NegativeSpaceWedgie large holes in reality]] through which countless [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Chaos Daemons]] and [[EvilCounterpart Chaos]] [[TheDarkSide Space Marines]] periodically emerge to attempt to bring the universe to further ruin, the most recent of which now stretches across the entire ''galaxy'' and has split the Imperium in two.
