Generations later, after the intense tradition shock of encountering the Gallente Federation, and within the wake of a disastrous attempted invasion of Jovian space, many Minmatar took the opportunity to rebel and successfully overthrew their enslavers, forming their very own authorities. However, a lot of their population stay enslaved by the Amarr, and a few, having adopted the Amarrian religion and sided with their masters in the course of the revolution, have been released from bondage and incorporated into the Empire as commoners within the Ammatar Mandate.
