People in the Fleet are always provided basic necessities for free, and also receive a stipend in the form of computer memory for extraneous items.
Originally a fleet of 300 Divines and their ships, their number had dwindled to 8 in the 300 years prior to Twilight Mirage, and to 2 at the beginning of the series. The Divines' ships are not the only ships within the fleet, but are its major touchstones and population centers. The ships are constantly moving, anticipating danger, because there are so few of them left.
The cause of the deaths of most of the Divines is unknown. This was an odd occurrence; no one knows why the Divines suddenly started to die after 30,000 years.
