Basically, it's the cesspit where we all come from. Millions of years old, it gets occasionally disinfected by an ice age or a KT-event, though some might prefer that to happen a bit more regularly.

Generally speaking, it smells and is in dire need of a chlorine treatment.

The total sum of genetic information present in a population at any given moment.
