[[WMG: Every single game of ''Civilization'' you've ever played takes place in the same continuity.]]
The ancient ruins scattered around the earth are the remains of cities that were nuked to oblivion in a previous game you played. The world is in a constant cycle where upon researching technology too far, civilization collapses and starts a new Ancient Era, leaving the (evidently immortal) rulers to amass what survivors they can to start their empires anew. That's why every new game invariably starts with you sending scouts to scrounge up whatever technology, surviving civilians or cultural artifacts you can find from the remains of your old cities. The barbarians are, of course, hordes of civilian survivors driven mad by the collapse of society. Lacking an immortal leader, they can never truly reform society on their own, merely form small bands of marauders.

[[WMG: Civilization V takes place after the Contact victory of Beyond Earth.]]
The Progenitors judged the space colonists worthy of sharing their knowledge. They also decided that other human civilizations, every human civilization that ever existed, deserved a chance to prove themselves. To this end, they began to terraform planets and raise the dead. Although the story is told from the point of view of famous historical leaders, the fact is that advisors, citizens and units have also been resurrected or reincarnated and made into TheAgeless. The narrator, a Progenitor, is not stingy with praise when it comes to cultural, diplomatic, scientific or even military accomplishments, and will also offer encouragements and another chance to fallen civilizations.

** Perhaps the civilizations starting out are the survivors from [[SidMeiersAlphaCentauri Alpha Centauri]] returning to recolonize Earth?

[[WMG: Civilization takes place after Beyond Earth's the Great Mistake, but before the Seeding]]
* Related to the above. The Great Mistake wiped out all civilization, but left behind a lot of barbarians and ruins. A few leaders rose up and rebuilt society to a point where it can preform the seeding.

** Nebuchadnezzar probably isn't an example. His erratic behavior is a reference to the Biblical portrayal where he goes insane and lives in the wild for seven years.
** However, this does veer into FridgeBrilliance when you consider the game over text of Civilization 1.

** Those That Came Before from the [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin's Creed]] series?
*** Perhaps the Nations are connected to them?
**** Maybe in a Hetalia~esque manner?
