A corporation is a group of players in EVE. It is an organisation similar to guilds and clans from other massively multiplayer online (MMO) games. Players may form their own corporations or, subject to approval, join existing ones.
Non-player corporations or NPC corps are predefined corporations in EVE that are not run by any player. They serve as starter corporations for new players, or transitional corporations when a player is moving from one player-owned corporation to another. Since there is no requirement to be a member of a player-owned corporation in EVE, it is possible to stay in a non-player corporation permanently.
Requirements for New CorporationsEdit
In order to create a corporation, the player must:
- Have the skill Corporation Management. Each Level of this skill allows 10 members to join.
- Pay a set-up fee. This varies by region but is usually around 1,599,800 ISK
- Be a member of an NPC corporation
- To have races other than your own in your Corporation you will need the Ethnic Relations skill
There are many benefits to starting or joining a corporation. Corporations may join alliances to participate in large-scale fleet battles. They may also lay claim to entire systems in the name of their alliance. Taxes collected by a corporation can be used by the Director or CEO to replace ships or purchase equipment for its members. Joining or starting a corporation also guarantees a group of people to fly with in combat or in peace, offering support for each member.

§ - Can rent a manufacturing slot on behalf of the corporation. Must be combined with the “Factory Manager” role and at least some hangar access to be of any use.
