The Conglomerate States

October 30, 2010

The Conglomerate States is an industrialized, consumer-based society occupying two-thirds of Nexus galaxy. It contains thousands of life-baring worlds and sentient species. On the surface the Conglomerate States presents themselves as a wealthy utopia, with glass towers reaching towards the sky and the promise of a bright future.

But the Conglomerate State are divided among 12 ruling corporations which are constantly at odds with one in other. And beneath the facade of wealth, there is growing threat of poverty, over population, mounting aggression between corporations, and exhaustion of resources.

In response the corporations have turned their gaze to the untapped resources of the surrounding Outer Territories as a solution to their problem. But as the corporation expand outward, they find themselves in a growing confrontation with the Reptilia Droc.

Nine hundred years ago, under the united ruler-ship of the Weiquin Empire, the worlds of the Conglomerate States had a glactic-wide war with the Droc. After centuries passed and Droc adopted a policy of isolationism, the history of this war has been largely forgotten and reduced to a legend among public consciousness. But the Droc are still a force to be reckoned with, and clashes over planets in the Outer Territories have lead to severe causalities on the side of the Corporations.

For the Corporations, revealing their war with the Droc would reveal just how desperate they have become. So instead the citizens of the Conglomerate State kept in the dark from the mounting problems. Media control, public empathy, political diversion keep the people unaware that their glass castle is cracking.

Below is a list of Corporations which have appeared so far. As well as the companies’ main focus, though each corporations own subsidiaries in every facet of life, which the corporate states to be largely independent of each other.
