Olympus along with the rest of the Olympian Solar System was formed billions of years ago from a solar nebula. Olympus has a long history of development from the earliest microscopic organisms to the now large nation-states that inhibit it today. Today over a billion people depend on Olympus's abundant natural resources and varied biosphere. Humans have developed many diverse cultures and societes; politically there are over 40‬1 nations.

History

See Also Timeline of World History (Greater Olympus)

The History of Olympus follows a somewhat similar path as Earth has up until about the Medieval Era. The largest distinction between Earth and Olympus emerge from this time period. Unlike Earth there was no “Great Divergence” between one continent and the rest nor was a “new world” discovered. Instead the sharing of ideas following innovations in ship building sparked an era of rational thought not unlike the renaissance and enlightenment throughout the world. The industrial revolution had heartlands throughout the world as industries collected themselves in dispersed pockets. That is not to say that this is a world of peace but it has kept the world far more fractured than our own. Regional powers exist but none strong enough to truly unite a region under its control. Superpowers have not risen from great empires and colonization as we know it, is a rare sight. Yes Olympus is similar to our own world but at the same time quite unique.

Religions

Religions that have a sizable following in Greater Olympus

  • Beoin- A monotheistic faith based around the teachings of the Prophet Beo. Beoin has diversified from it's origins leading to various sects forming due to political and religious reasons. Some sects follow Magi as a religious leader while others are more decentralized. Beoin is therefore more a collection of religious movements based on the teachings of Beo.
