As noted, Metrodome is a mecca of the dark future world and the corporations operating here are
some of the largest. The names and brands are world-famous and while the
overseers of their day-to-day activities might not be known to the public, they
are more powerful than most of us can even imagine - at least on the scale of
the modern-day, real-world, American president (for example).
These corporations are so large and powerful that each resides in a sector of
its own. Further, many neighborhoods outside of these dedicated sectors
are filled with their employees. And, again, their products and services
are ubiquitous. Metrodome is famous, the corporation is famous, thus, by
extension, are its controlling employees. Wealth and power follow in
BioDyne and BioMed are two of the largest firms in Metrodome and are major players on the worldwide scale. While BioDyne has
branches, plants, and holdings across the nation, as well as international
offices, BioMed's Metrodome locale is the only one of its kind. Its
success rate has made it a world-renowned institution.
Both the Rasslin' and Rollerderby leagues are famous, as their events are
nationally televised and they constitute a brisk tourism industry in addition
to their sportswear and accessories lines. Other cities and locales turn
to these organizations for help establishing leagues in their areas.
While both brands are attempting to establish leagues on the national level -
perhaps even worldwide - issues with travel, communications, licensing/revenue,
and the like have hampered their attempts. Internal politics have also
stymied the products' growth, though their brands remain strong.
Many corporations have merged or fallen since our present day. Following
is an incomplete list of the major megacorporations active in the Dark Conspiracy world. Remember that not all corporations are going to be in league with
the Dark - otherwise, there would be no "conspiracy" to speak
of. Corporations which have offices and/or manufacturing branches in
Metrodome are noted where appropriate.
The Corporations of the Dark Future
BioDyne: The premiere agricorporation in and around Metrodome, BioDyne
specializes in foods and food products. The Summerlands are located here, partially in the 'Dome and partially outside of it, just
like the agricorp itself. BioDyne uses rainwater collected by the gutter
system, and the climate-controlling technology built into the geodesic dome,
both of which were abandoned. The agricorp also uses the bat guano as
fertilizer. Environmentally speaking, BioDyne is a model corporation.
BioHazzard Blades: One of the newest, and fastest-growing, rollerblade corporations in the
country, BioHazzard Blades are known for their signature glowing wheels, which give the appearance of
being literally on fire when the skater reaches 30+ MPH, and are considered by
many to be the best in the business. As they have literally blasted out
of nowhere over the last few years to give the long-established leader in the
industry, K-2, a run for their money, analysts suggest keeping an eye on both companies - a
struggle for the market is brewing.
BioMed: The medical district and the only locale of BioMed. While its holdings
are limited, BioMed is world famous for its success rate within the 'Dome. Note
that BioMed is far from the only hospital, pharmacy, or reposit for medical
needs in Metrodome.
Boeing/Sikorksy: Specializing in aircraft.
Cadillac-Gage: Like many established companies, Cadillac had to branch out into other
fields to keep afloat. While they still make luxury cars, other models
include inexpensive autos, as well as the Commando V-300P (DC, p. 308).
E-Z Living, Inc.: Based out of L.A. with no satellite offices as of yet. E-Z Living, Inc. is an entertainment-based corporation, focusing mainly on consumptive
substances. Their hottest item is pre-packaged marijuana cigarettes
(Jujus™), available in most stores across the nation. They also
make a number of alcoholic beverages and a new THC-based beverage,
JuJuice™ which has yet to hit the mass market (but is available in L.A.).
Ford-Revlon: "Found On Road Dead wearing lipstick. Har-har."
General Dynamics Motors: All too often referred to as "GD Motors."
K-2: The premier rollerblading equipment provider for RAM and many other
rollerderby associations and leagues, both big and small. They have
recently received stiff competition from the upstart company, BioHazzard Blades. More information on both K-2 and rollerderbying can be found here.
Pepsico: Yes, they still make Pepsi Cola™ but the brand has expanded into
markets no one ever expected, including a popular clothing line, small
automobiles, and even watercraft (DC, p. 309).

It's a gimme the corporations own everything, run everything. Blocks full
of proles, signs everywhere you look. I'll believe in the government when
I see it work. - [name withheld]
