Cloning Technology through MMI’s Genomics Research Organization for Societal Success (GROSS)

The MMI's Genomics Research Organization for Societal Success (GROSS) is a multi-corporation initiative to research and develop cloning technology for the betterment of society.

The MMI Department of Defense has successfully utilized the advancements of GROSS in some unique ways. Today, in some facets of the MMI military, conscription and enlistment is no longer needed. A large sector is MMI’s armed Saudakar Ground forces of commissioned grunts have been replaced by highly capable and fearsome cloned units. This system of clone-replacement allows MMI citizens to focus solely on living and, of course, working round the clock, all day, everyday!

Each unit is treated with extreme care from injection all the way to final developmental completion and activation. Every unit receives a large monetary and time investment in “service development training” by a team of specialists from harvest to the age of 23 years (time of activation). Therefore, each unit spends a large percentage of its service developing techniques suitable to its task. As a consequence, these units are highly efficient and effective at their purpose. Moreover, intensive psychological and psychiatric conditioning is employed throughout all aspects of their development. Each unit is fully aware of their purpose and takes extreme pride and motivation in their work. In fact, GROSS replicant units maintain a high degree of camaraderie with their brethren and a sense of superiority persists among their ranks. This is also enforced by the fact that each GROSS unit is aware that its lifespan is short at exactly 30 years. Details regarding unit spontaneous termination mechanisms are classified.
The MMI HHS and DoD are working with private advertising, marketing, and legal firms to offer some of these units on the free global market. At this time, MMI is offering two types of units as described below. Each unit is bar-coded to allow easy and efficient identification and inventory.

Please note that these units were created by host nuclear-cell transfer technologies followed by development through GROSS-patented Symbiotic Placental Reconstitution Chamber System technology. These replicant models share identical genomic sequences and are therefore purely clonal in nature. However, it should be clarified that they are derived from human source and are human in everyway. Therefore, MMI does not encourage, support, or condone, nor is MMI or GROSS Industries or any subsidiaries or related thereof responsible for, any use of these units beyond their developed and intended purpose. MMI reserves the right to deny any purchase to any individual, corporation, or government for any reason at any time. Prices are non-negotiable and all sales are final.

CRIR units are psychologically trained to maintain a high level of pride and camaraderie within their own “brother” units. They have an extraordinary “understanding” of one another and, when required, they will defend each other to the death. It is highly recommended that CRIR units be kept together during peacetime and combat: they do not do well when single units are intermixed with normal conscripts. This point cannot be stress enough: single CRIR units are highly unstable and dangerous. Therefore, CRIR units are only sold in relatively large groups.

Price per unit takes into account the large cost of development and training:
Price per CRIR unit is $1 million USD (not sold separately):

CRIR platoon (50 units): $50 million USD
CRIR company (200 units): $200 million USD
CRIR battalion (1,000 units): $1 billion USD
CRIR division (10,000 units): $10 billion USD
GROSS Industries Pleasure-Ready Improved Symbiont (PRIS) v3.1
The PRIS unit is a highly effective pleasure-ready escort and companion replicant. Similar to the CRIR unit, each PRIS symbiont undergoes specialized developmental training from 6 to 23 years post-harvest. These units are bred and pleasure-ready for high level companionship responsibilities:

Basic philosophy of etiquette
Room entrance and exit
Networking and first impressions
Business and social introductions
Business entertaining and being entertained
Basic nutrition

PRIS units are psychologically trained to provide world-class companionship and pleasure service. Like CRIR units, they take extreme pride in their purpose. PRIS unit development is composed of a complete repertoire of companion and pleasure required specialties. In addition, PRIS units are trained to protect their host companions and undergo significant personal defensive training. Each PRIS unit is an accomplished marksman with handgun and rifle. Like CRIR units, the lifespan on each PRIS unit is exactly 30 years. Unlike CRIR units, PRIS units function perfectly well alone or in groups.

At this time, only a standard PRIS model is available (pictured above). In the future, MMI will offer customized units.

Price per unit takes into account the large cost of development and training: PRIS units are significantly more developed and require a much larger investment in training compared to CRIR units.

Price per PRIS unit is $100 million USD.
