Fictional Company Profile: Manimenggi Oil Company by kyuzoaoi Fictional Company Profile: Manimenggi Oil Company by kyuzoaoi

This is a fictional country profile for my Alternate History of Manchuria.

Manimenggi was short for Manchurian National Oil Company. It was founded in 1962 during the communist-regime and semi-privatized after the fall of communism. If you see their gas station, think of Rosneft meets Shell (gas station design-wise) meets Petrochina. They mainly serve in Asia, but is spreading across the world, even in Oceania and North and South America, Africa and Europe. They are somewhat a bit more environmentally-cautious than the others, but they consider 'going green' as a cheap publicity stunt by others.

 Since they are owned by the Manchurian government, attacking oil facilities of Manimenggi is considered terrorism against Manchuria itself, wherever they drill, as Friends of the Earth activists found to their horror when they tried to storm a Manimenggi oil refinery in Germany in 2011. They didn't see the Manimenggi guards are actually on-duty and in-uniform Manchurian Riot Police. They wiped out most of the attackers and the rest shipped to Manchuria for a heavy public torture and freed them only after the German government warned Manimenggi that it might be closed off from Germany. The cyber-attacks launched by groups sympathizing with them like the anons with the capital A failed to storm the Manimenggi websites: Manchurian computer experts from the Manchurian Information Technology Center are just too smart for them.

Manimenggi's motor oil are the best in Northeast Asia, only surpassed by Eneos, Idemitsu, and SG Oil. Their patented oil shale conversion technology was source of pride, and also they are using the government's espionage expertise to prevent it from being stolen by especially Western and Chinese oil companies.

Manimenggi, along with rival Sunggarineft and Amagaoil, are having a current near monopoly in oil distribution in the Northern Side Special Administrative Region of the Republic of Korea (formerly the DPRK), something that the Korean oil companies, Korean nationalist bloggers, and Northern residents resent.

I used again the Wikipedia sandbox and the template of companies. The company logo is of my own creation, any similarities with others are coincidental.

"They wiped out most of the attackers and the rest shipped to Manchuria for a heavy public torture and freed them only after the German government warned Manimenggi that it might be closed off from Germany."

Does this mean that while not Communist, Manchuria is still undemocratic?

On the most part, they are genuinely democratic. However, they overdo it, and they are increasingly under criticism. The public uproar in Manchuria was so great they had to fire those who were responsible and were charged with excessive torture and illegal detention.
