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.

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.
