All we have to do is look at the history of the KillZone universe....
"Earth in the future is plagued by a violent war that ends with the use of nuclear weapons. Having the proper technology, humanity leaves Earth and begins colonizing other planets. Humans begin to survey other systems in space for other habitable planets, leading the search are several organizations, including companies like Helghan.Two planets in Alpha Centauri are found. Earth, without any money left, auctions off the system to the highest bidder in which the Helghan Corp wins. They colonize the two planets, calling the first Vekta (in honor of the company president). It served as a base for all Helghan activities. The second planet was dubbed Helghan (named after the company). All the other colonies began to recognize the strategic power of Alpha Centauri and exploited its advantage. Other companies began passage through the tax system and to profit from their privileged position. Of course, this opportunity eventually triggered a reaction among the various organizations, including the leading military organization, ISA. The ISA threatened Vekta with an embargo that stops allowing them to exercise their right to dominate the territory. Refusing to do so, Vekta suffers a siege after offering very little resistance to the power of the strategic ISA fleet. Vekta is surrounded and invaded by the ISA. The settlers are expelled to Helghan. The ISA then takes care of Vekta enjoying all the strategic value of this planet and made it their property. However, in Helghan Scolar Visari takes advantage of the situation to form the Helghast Empire and prepares a fierce campaign to recover what is rightfully his."
