Context[edit | edit source]

Another Paradox Interactive videogame, called Stellaris, features space colonization. In this context, an alien country ruled by robots (the Synthetics) found a primitive world, Earth, and decided to invade it. This easter egg has been preannounced by tweets on the Twitter pages of Europa Universalis IV and of Stellaris, through encrypted messages.
