The Wrong Side of Heaven
Aztechnology, headquartered in Tenochtitlan, Aztlan, is the second largest corporation in the world and the largest corporation in North America. Aztechnology is the number one producer of consumer goods in the world. It is also number one in the Magical Industry. The corporation strongly supports the Aztlaner government, which in turn enacts a number of laws to the advantage of Aztechnology. The corporation is privately owned and does not disclose the names of its shareholders and board members. On the other hand, it heavily uses publicity to support its foods and consumer goods sales.
The trophy of Aztechnology North America is of course Stuffer Shack, but he also oversees medical corp MediCarro and bleeding-edge tech firm Genetique. This last one has caused no end of headaches lately due to the CFD crisis.
