OOC: The Grand Supreme Thread of all News, Technological Advances, and political intrigue summaries.


"I'm bored. Let's see what happened today."

The stranger glances around his tiny apartment, the control globe was somewhere in this room. Why technological advances had dictated that all media must be controlled by an object that could roll away was a question oft ask by those who lived in the apartment spires in the Deep. The Globe wasn't by the window, well, technically it was a projected screen with a bright 'natural' sun coming out. In truth he was somewhere in the middle of the building. The swirling algae clouds down here weren't very interesting to watch anyway. Useful for food with the proper strainer. Better then breathing the methane and other unfun gases that descended down here from pollution.

At any rate, the stranger glances under his bed, which also took up almost all of his quarters. The thing was difficult to lift, always scratching the knees. He glanced at his folded up table, and there it was, attached to the wall with velcro. A small sum of things were actually on the wall, attached to velcro. The stranger wanted one of those fancy things called 'cupboards' or 'tables', but all he could get was the one that folded up on the wall.

He twisted around in the tiny cube as he got himself into the television watching position. He moved his 'pillow', a large sponge (nice for cleaning up stains). The stranger fed his credit card, entered in his Bank ID code, and sat back for some programming.

The Holovision quickly went into it's 'desktop' as the rolling meadow scene turned off. A female voice spoke in a cheery tone.

They also forget the current alignment of the political axis in the NRRB intelligentsia is clearly in favor of the innovative policies the ArAreBeen people are known for giving out. Furthermore, the fact that our race saved this country from political nonexistence is a fact these people seem to forget. Now if you excuse me, I have to attend a Newforgers meeting at the lodge.

Recent UN reports cite Government Incorporated's Market Expansion

Government Incorporated has always been classed as the 'brotherly' megacorp, a needed PR move considering their strangle hold on emergency response, employment safety nets, and various insurance branches. Hell, they even host the NRRBAB and maintain the Directory (while netting profit from the tourism, of course), but recent UN reports have shaken investor and consumer alike.

Government Incorporated's percentage of citizenry employment has taken an exponential growth as a series of employee raids gutted several competitors. Freelance Memetic Engineers were toiling several months on an antinoetic that has steadily reduced the consumer base of rivals, causing a multitude of 'down sizing' intiatives. A few bounties on corporate secrets later and their rivals are ruined, along with any nondisclosure agreements. The rival employees were quickly transferred to G.I. human resources were hired to do more work for less pay.

In short, GI just tripled its consumer base as citizens fall back on back-up policies. Trust-affiliated holdings in GI were also reduced as GulShuGoth managed to net a large some of shares due to media backlash fears. Realpolitik has raised Government Incorporated's influence in NRRB affairs by a dozen rankings, nipping on the big ten trustaffil'ed megacorps. Bleux Security also raised a few points as doomsayers increased armegeddon fears. Ea still holds the top three positions, with Zee and Emen with four and five, in that order.
