1. A memory of <Old Earth>
Humans desired to be free from labor with their strong believe in liberty and equality, and they expected that robots would replace their suffering from labor. With their slogan 'Convenience, Fast, and complete liberation', they poured their all resources to produce robots. With improvement in robot technology, all their resources in Earth have exhausted and Earth suffered from severe contamination all over the world.
Though, 'Robot revolution', the commercialization of human-level robots, caused many jobs of humans replaced by robots, and humans were forced to work harder in severe brain works called creation. Some are dominated by human-made robots and some are even used as Bio-energy, and this irony made humans to be doubt for their worth of existence, and they began to protest against to robot technology saying "Robot revolution will deprive human's dignity!"
Various United Nations were made to stop this chaos, the situation has worsened as they struggled only to seize power rather than solve common problems. Eventually, all the growing complaints leaded wars between robots and between capitals, so people have no option but to escape from Earth in out of control.
2. History of <Utopia>
A long time ago, each race in utopia maintained a comparable numbers. They don't need to communicate with each other till there was an attack from alien outside as the resources were so abundant. This attack made them to cooperate against to the emergency, but it was so hard to make consensus as they have same level of power and no one want to lose. Therefore they had to choose 'Majority'.
After the successful defense, the utopian union emerged because of the necessity of the union. The Utopian Union expanded its area not only in defense but to resource, territory and diplomacy. They selected their representative at first, though their cultural and genetic difference made it difficult to select one. Finally they adopted private voting machine. The Doves took advantage of their shortest reproductive cycle by co-parenting, and this made them to be the leading race and it has collapsed the balance in the Utopian Union gradually.
