Ok I'm starting work on corporations now. I like Mr Historical's list, but I think if we're starting with 7 corps we should spread them out among the current corporate/financial powers of the world. So I'm thinking: USA EU NATO Japan Russia China ...and I came up with: USA: Exxon Mobil (Irving, TX. ~Dallas/Houston) Wal-Mart Stores (Bentonville, AR. ~ Little Rock) EU: ING Group (Amsterdam) NATO: H.S.B.C. (London) Japan: Toyota Motor (Toyota, Aichi. ~Nagoya) Russia: Gazprom (Moscow) China: State Grid (Beijing) These are mainly the biggest corps from each of these counties/unions, with some exceptions to prevent having 6 or 7 oil companies. We're going to try to use these to represent how there are small countries that each of these powers currently have influence in (some would use the word exploiting). I think it has been agreed on (I'll have to re-read these threads) that having these corps in most African cities will be the way of insuring that Africa starts off at a disadvantage. I think we should make some sort of (very costly) revolutionary or populist unit that liberates a city from a having a foreign corporation.
