The Covenant of the Void is a very insular society founded by and for ESPers. The use, research and exploitation of psychic abilities is the at the core of the communal nation. Early in the history of the Covenant there was a devastating war fought against the United Nations, in a misguided attempt to 'free' the ESPers who the Covenant saw as being held as slaves by the cradles of humanity. Recently the last of the long-standing sanctions on the Covenant has ended, heralding a resurgeance in outward ambitions.
