These races are the Amarr Empire, the Caldari State, the Gallente Federation, the Jovian Empire and the Minmatar Republic. Of those, only four are actually playable within the game (the Jovians, for now, remain an elusive and mysterious bunch that want nothing to do with other humans in their shared section of space).
