 Across YC110, many portions of Black Rise fell to Gallente occupation. Large swathes of the region lacked any notable population to begin with, while many systems had yet to be developed beyond working stargates. This allowed the Federation free reign as to do whatever they wished with their conquered territories,​ especially considering that the few colonists that would find themselves under foreign military rule simply returned to their original homes in the State heartlands. When Federal forces were eventually ejected from the systems by the State Protectorate,​ the Gallente adopted a scorched earth policy, destroying any infrastructure that had been established,​ whether by themselves or the Caldari previously. Across YC110, many portions of Black Rise fell to Gallente occupation.

-The eventual resecuring of the region allowed the Kaalakiota corporation to announce a full-scale survey program for Black Rise in March YC111, with the aims of discovering valuable resources and colonization the opportunities. The surveying was primarily to be conducted by the Home Guard, KK’s security arm, hoping to develop a comprehensive resource database for the region[1]. Days after KK’s announcement,​ the Lai Dai corporation followed suit, stating that it would consider moving a number of facilities into the Black Rise region, as well as constructing two new planetside aluminum production plants, while Wiyrkomi were to establish several mining colonies over the next six months, creating as many as 60,000 new jobs[2]. Though it was rumoured SuVee would also announce their own plans, no public statement ever reached fruition.+The eventual resecuring of the region allowed the Kaalakiota corporation to announce a full-scale survey program for Black Rise in March YC111, with the aims of discovering valuable resources and colonization the opportunities.

-In October YC111, not long after the State Protectorate had established complete military dominance of both the Caldari and Gallente warzones, Lai Dai announced a Black Rise development conference to take place on their station in Kinakka[3], inviting allies Kaalakiota and Wiyrkomi. Major subsidiaries of these corporations were also invited, including Ytiri, Top Down, Propel Dynamics and the Zero-G Research Firm[4]. Technological pioneers and the general public attended the conference, attendees numbering in the thousands. The many pieces of technology showcased included Zero-G’s prototype for a next-generation orbital habitat, an experimental deadspace garden module by Kaalakiota and Caldari Provisions, and a low-maintenance atmospheric craft developed by Lai Dai. However, a day into the conference, an electromagnetic attack on the station, causing damage to attendees’ cybernetics as well as wiping numerous data networks on the station[5]. Though there were no fatalities, the conference was cancelled, and an irreparable blow was struck to Black Rise development for the following months.+In October YC111, not long after the State Protectorate had established complete military dominance of both the Caldari and Gallente warzones, Lai Dai announced a Black Rise development conference to take place on their station in Kinakka, inviting allies Kaalakiota and Wiyrkomi.

-There were several attacks against Lai Dai in the months following, as well as rival Sukuuvestaa’s assets also suffering from attacks, with an explosion at one of their production plants in the Arvasaras system[6]. Initially, SuVee attempted to implicate a group of Gallente terrorists operating in their annexed territories of the Federation, and increased their defense spending[7]. However, the Caldari Navy occupying forces in Federation territory did note any increase in terrorist activity. Instead, it was revealed that both Lai Dai and SuVee had been engaging in “unlawful anti-competitive measures” with one another, facing sanctions by the Caldari Business Tribunal[8]. Analysts interpreted the episode as SuVee’s general resentment against Lai Dai and other Patriots for their hegemony over Black Rise.+There were several attacks against Lai Dai in the months following, as well as rival Sukuuvestaa’s assets also suffering from attacks, with an explosion at one of their production plants in the Arvasaras system.

-During the occupation of Gallente space in the latter half of YC111, several of the megacorporations began to focus on Placid operations. Not believing that the Federation were capable of a counterattack,​ attention was drawn away from Black Rise and other developments across the wider State due to the pre-existing infrastructure in the occupied territories. The setbacks of the Lai Dai conference attack, as well as the ability to not be concerned with the local population played a major influence in these decisions. This came at the cost of increased piracy across sovereign State territory due to the megacorps shifting their defensive presence into the Federation, with Guristas activity plaguing Wiyrkomi holdings in the Okunda constellation in Lonetrek[9]. However, the massive Gallente counterattack at the end of YC111 proved ruinous, with the Patriot megacorps shifting their attention back to the development of Black Rise, eager to recuperate the losses sustained.+During the occupation of Gallente space in the latter half of YC111, several of the megacorporations began to focus on Placid operations.

 Today, despite colonists flocking to the region in droves, Black Rise remains wartorn and underdeveloped. The stellar phenomena that litter the sector of space often make life and communication difficult, while the Federation, eager to keep as much of the fighting outside of its own territories,​ pose a constant threat to any further infrastructural development. Many suspect that Black Rise will only reach its full potential if and when the current conflict ends. Today, despite colonists flocking to the region in droves, Black Rise remains wartorn and underdeveloped.

 Black Rise is important for the contemporary Caldari people as it is perceived to represent a new frontier of colonization opportunities. The frontier mindset has never been strong in Caldari culture, as it is often seen as overly romantic and self-serving,​ associated with the Gallente. However, the Caldari Providence Directorate has been efficient in propagating the benefits of such a mindset for the greater good of the State. The profit opportunities of Black Rise are seen as endless by the Caldari people, who have not successfully expanded into new areas since the end of the Gallente-Caldari War. The overemphasis on personal initiative and enterprise has been harshly criticized by Tibus Heth’s opponents amongst the Caldari, who believe that Black Rise will never be fully integrated with the rest of the State as long as it is settled on what is perceived as an overly individualistic mindset. They often use the examples of anaemic regions in the Federation (such as Verge Vendor) as an example of how decentralized colonization ultimately does not bring economic prosperity. Black Rise is important for the contemporary Caldari people as it is perceived to represent a new frontier of colonization opportunities.

-Nonetheless,​ Black Rise on the demographic level is otherwise an anomaly when compared to the rest of the State. Because of its widespread disconnection,​ several communities have sprung up that are completely independent of the Caldari authorities,​ who otherwise do not tolerate disconnected entities within their borders. Caldari who have fallen off the bottom rung of the corporate ladder often come to settle in remote areas of Black Rise, away from the remainder of State society. These exiled communities are often ignored by the greater authorities,​ be it Federation or Caldari military, so long as they do not get in the way of any greater schemes. Opportunistic Gallente and Intaki from bordering Placid often migrate to the region, seeking to exploit the new riches in the region. Naturally, the Caldari military are often ruthless with these individuals. The high level of armed conflict in the region keeps everything in a constant state of motion, as Black Rise has not been settled long enough for any truly permanent settlements to be established. Gallente charities are often seen operating in the region, the Caldari authorities permitting them to do so, simply seeing it as outsourcing a matter they would otherwise be disinclined to bother with. A notable example is Renyn Relief, founded by a prominent Caldari prospector, and privately backed by Caldari firms such as SuVee and Zainou[10].+Nonetheless,​ Black Rise on the demographic level is otherwise an anomaly when compared to the rest of the State.

 Overall, however, Black Rise is in a state of flux. Its widespread colonization and development was only initiated thanks to the outbreak of a war that rages within its very confines, and no state of permanency has been established. It will take many years, if not decades, for Black Rise to reach the same level as more homogeneous regions such as the Forge and Citadel. For now, Black Rise must live under the effects of the ongoing war, but this is sometimes seen as a positive thing by the militaristic-minded Caldari. Overall, however, Black Rise is in a state of flux.
