Imperial Mega Corporation.

Makhidkarun specializes in the entertainment and communications industries. It produces fine musical recordings of all types, two- and three-dimensional movies, books, magazines, and art reproductions.

The Communication Division produces a wide variety of data processing, storage, and retrieval equipment, plus the requisite software for it.

The Gourmet Foods Division trades in all manner of rare and expensive foods, wines, and delicacies.

The Arean Transport subsidiary operates luxury liners which set the standard for fine cuisine and cruises throughout the Imperium. Makhidkarun also provides passenger and freight services throughout the Imperium, although operations are confined to established trade routes.

The Robotics Division has established Makhidkarun as the most innovative robotics manufacturer in the Imperium. Its research staff is responsible for many of the Imperium's significant breakthroughs in synaptic processing.

In 298, Makhidkarun introduced the first line of tech level 13 robot brains. It revolutionized the popularity of robots in the Third Imperium by making robots usable by every citizen.

In 711, it created the first prototype tech level 14 robot brain.
