STEGANO

Tagline unknown

Background

The Stegano conglomerate is the largest hidden champion company currently in existence. Stegano is responsible for the bulk majority of consumer food and beverage products, ranging from bottled water to artificial meat and genetically modified vegetables.

Stegano shuns the limelight, instead investing a large portion of its capital to advertise its various daughter companies. Stegano routinely creates the allusion of competition, and thereby choice. In reality, if you consume something that you haven’t produced yourself, it was most likely produced by a Stegano subsidiary.

Blue Glacier

The only producer of bottled water, Blue Glacier sells tens of millions of bottles every single day.

Terrascope Global focuses exclusively on creating food products that mimic the diets of Earth.

Beef, pork and poultry are not naturally occurring products in Eos, yet they Terrascope Globals primary export.

MONOLITH

ad infinitum

Background

“Too big to fail” is the first thing most people think of when someone mentions the Monolith conglomerate. Originally starting out as a small company producing surgical goods, Monolith quickly rose to become a dominating force in the medical goods industry. After successfully undercutting its competitors, Monolith soon became the only corporation left to produce medical goods at an affordable cost. Thanks to the FNE’s strict intellectual property laws, Monolith is the only corporation that can produce most types of medical goods.

Monolith has since moved into several industries, becoming the world leader in public transportation and industrial vehicle production.

CATALYST

The Future is Bright

Background

Catalyst Manufacturing, commonly referred to as “CM”, is the wealthiest individual corporation in Eos. CM’s origins go all the back to the first days of the humans. It was originally a non-for-profit organization designed to connect as many people to the grid as possible, with the goal of spreading education. After the last humans died off, CM changed goals with profit becoming the new goal. Since CM was in control of the information spread throughout the grid, they eliminated access to any information regarding how the grid or it’s technology functions. Only authorized CM technicians are allowed to work on CM tech by law, leading the vast majority of the population to be clueless to the inner workings of the technology.

Every piece of technology that can connect to the grid is designed, manufactured, and maintained by Catalyst Manufacturing. Only certified Catalyst Manufacturing technicians, often referred to as “Gate Keepers”, are allowed to understand how it works. Unauthorized possession of this knowledge is subject to a lifetime sentence in an off-planet prison colony.
