Earth is one of the four terrestrial planets in the Solar system and is the home planet of the Human race, as well as many other various life forms. It is the capital planet of the United Nations, the Unified Earth Government, and the United Nations Space Command. Earth was possibly the most populated planet of the Human space territories. For a significant amount of humanity's history, it was to them the only known place in the universe to support life.
The Human-Covenant war climaxed for Earth when vast swathes of land were glassed in Africa. The extent of this damage was untold, with ecological damage seemingly irreparable and cascading in negative effects. The Sangheilli gifted Humanity impressive terraforming technology as an apology, with it Humanity has since repaired the damage done by the Covenant to their homeworld.
Many years have passed and the city of New Mombasa has been rebuilt, as a sign of Defiance against insurmountable odds and unity with the Sangheili. Even New Pheonix has been repopulated, but several hundred memorials dot its streets to those fallen to the Didact's hand and to wars since.
New Elevators have been built to facilitate offworld trade, but around them a growing problem seems to be 'ghettos' of Concordat species, attempting to live their life on the xenophobic yet highly profitable cities of Earth.
