Even though it's the number one center for politics, Monroe C.D. and the surrounding suburbs have their fair share of businesses and corporations. Here are the important ones:Monroe Post
The main newspaper serving the Monroe Metropolitan Area. They are best known for heavily exaggerating the news, lacking important details, and uncovering scandals, both on the streets and in the government. Let's look at today's headlines:Civil War in Scotland Rages on for it's 7th Year
EDINBURGH-It's just a regular day in the Edinburgh, Scotland's capitol city. Soldiers are drinking heavily in the pubs, not to be seen in daylight for the next few hours, tanks and armed troops parade up and down the streets, and the Scottish Congress fights over whether or not they should bomb Southwest Scotland.
For those who've been living under a rock for the past decade or so, ever since Scotland gained independence from the United Kingdom in May 1997, and since then, there has been many opposition. Out of the 74.3% of voters who were pro-independence, the rest slipped into the shadows, specifically the regions of "Dùn Phrìs is Gall-Ghaidhealaibh", or what we call "Southwest Scotland".
After an attempt by Southwest Scotland to secede from Scotland and join the United Kingdom in 2007, Scottish troops rolled in and shut down all the borders in and out of the United Kingdom. This act has been justified by commander Duncan McCowel, stating "Tá sé greannmhar, i ndáiríre. Chuir tú seo trí aistritheoir, ag súil a fháil ar roinnt ráiteas a dhlisteanú ár gcuid gníomhartha, ach ina ionad sin, fuair tú seo".

ALEXANDRIA-The Lombank in Alexandria was robbed by an armed robber earlier this morning. The robber, finally identified as Floyd Devon, a member of the Celtic Crosses Motorcycle Club, entered the bank at 11:46 and began waving a sawn-off shotgun at employees and patrons, demanding money. He escaped a few minutes later on a motorcycle with over $100,000 in stolen bank notes.
Luckily for society, a local vigilante now identified as Neil Myall was attending a miniature wargaming convention, when he heard the news VIA Police Scanner app on his FruitPhone. "When I hard tae news, I Knoo som'tin' was oop, and whoot if tey reached me home-me street?" Neil Myall told a reporter in his thick Scottish Accent, while smoking a pipe. "I goot in me car and droov doon tae street, hooping I can coot 'im off". Witness later reported Myall's grey Willard Opus driving eratically down the streets with Gaelic Folk Music blaring from the Interior, before violently ramming into Devon's motorcycle head-on. Myall calmly exited the car, adjusted his flat cap, and called the police. Devon, on the other hand, was flung onto the roof of the 24/7, violently deformed.
"Do I hete tae police? Aye, they're oll a boonch o' fookin' pigs. But in these parts, I'm tae police." Myall said with a grin and a laugh. Myall was a former officer in the Scottish Civil War, leading a fireteam to victory numerous times throughout the Western Highlands & Islands against the British.Gun Laws About To Be Loosened, Again
MONROE-Gunshots are heard in the distance and bullets ricochet off parked cars in Monroe Highlands. Of course, this is a normal day, but thanks to a new bill to be passed by the end of the year, this could happen anywhere at anytime.
The new bill, the "Gun Control Act Of 2012", will loosen gun laws, making fully automatic weapons and certain explosives available to the average consumer. Lamar Thompson, a senator from Florida who first introduced the bill, states "This bill must be passed in order for us to triumph over the terrorists! I mean, if they can get their hands on RPGs, why can't average Joe, who wants to fight the terrorists, but can't because all he has is a golf club".
Ammu-Nation, the national Sporting & Hunting goods chain store has openly expressed their joy for the bill, stocking every one of their stores with assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades, despite the fact that the bill hasn't even been passed yet. Jacob Issacs, the CEO of Ammu-Nation, stated earlier today "Why waste our time waiting for the damn bill to get passed when we can start stocking now?"Violent Shooting At Nightclub
COLFAX-Tragedy struck last night in the suburbs of Colfax as the nightclub "Eurobeat" as an unknown assailant entered the club and opened fire into a crowd of people doing "para para" with a heavily modified AK-47, before destroying nearby parked cars with an underbarrel grenade launcher. Luckily, nobody was hurt, except for a few ravers, who were killed due to excessive blood loss. According to security tapes, the shooter had a heavy limp and appeared to have a hard time fighting against the gun's recoil. The suspect is possibly an escaped mental patient.
The club owner, Trey Stevens, was nowhere near the club at the time of the shooting, as he was hosting a wild orgy of sex, drug, and video games in his Alexandria Penthouse. "I was eating out Jessica, my ex girlfriend, while being screwed by Raven, my current girlfriend, with a strap-on when I got the call. I sent my friend Neil to check it out while I got a BJ while playing 'Motor Vehicle Theft 5' on Acid".
The shooter has yet to be captured.KT-3 Brought Up From Potomac, Only to be Sunk Again
COLFAX-Many years has passed since KT-3, a ferry boat owned by KT Ferry, sunk to the watery depths of the Potomac River in 1997, thanks to some arab trying to make a name for himself. Still, a group of engineers hired by the Shaw Corporation have taken the task of towing the ferry up onto a barge and taking it to a salvage yard, where it would have been restored to working order.
Unfortunately, things didn't go as planned. Right after the rusted-out wreck of the KT-3 was placed on a barge and tied to the side of a tugboat, the pilot of the tugboat, Antonio Benvolio, left the pilothouse to stand on the side of the tugboat in order to wave to some friends on the shore. The tugboat then veered into a dock, sinking instantly, along with KT-3's remains.
Benvolio retreated into the river and swam to shore, before entering into a karaoke bar in Oakwood and ordered a Sandwich & Beer as his boss frantically tried to call him, before giving up and calling the police. The police arrived 10 minutes later, arresting Benvolio in the middle of him singing karaoke to, ironically, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald".
In other news, a Tugboat and a barge carrying the remains of KT-3 have sunken to the bottom of the Potomac River.Nerve Gas Threatens Metro Station; Disposed Of Properly
U.S.D.D.-Terror struck Monroe C.D. commuters as they found nerve gas cleverly disguised as a discarded coffee cup earlier today at the U.S.D.D. Metro Station. After shutting down the Metro station and evacuating residents within five miles of the station, a N.O.O.S.E. bomb squad took the canister, which was found near a trash can, placed it in an armored van, and drove it to Leonard County, Maryland, where it will be placed in an undisclosed location in the mountains and detonated safely.Blue Dragon Mall Arsonist Caught, Released
BRADDOCK - The person behind the Blue Dragon Mall blaze that killed a family of five last week has been arrested, local authorities say.
LaShawn Davis, 25, was spotted outside a nearby Pizza Stack starting to ignite a pile of garbage. Police arrested Davis and confiscated a cigarette lighter and a spray bottle filled with gasoline. After admitting that he is a member of the Huztlerz gang, Davis was promptly released and given only a warning.Injuns Drop 6th Straight After Blowout Loss to Hitmen
COLFAX - The Monroe Injuns fall to the bottom of the league standings with a 56-14 loss to the Las Venturas Hitmen last Sunday.
Las Venturas star quarterback Terrance Barrow threw for 264 yards and four touchdowns, two of them in the fourth quarter, for their third straight win and a 9-2 win-loss record.
The Injuns fell to 1-10, their lone win coming against the Alderney Wyverns three weeks ago. They will be facing the Wyverns again on Saturday.
"It was painful", Injuns running back Todd Brandon said. "We played like sh*t today. Hopefully we'll be able to win against those Alderney motherf*ckers for the second time."Discarded Trash Terrorist Strike Again
MONROE-In shocking new developments, NOOSE is now releasing that earlier today, a terrorist who may or may not be linked to the discarded coffee cup a few days ago, planted a nerve gas canister in a trash can near the Capitol Building, once again, disguised as a coffee cup. "We've had damn well enough of this!" said Jack Michaels, the head of directors for NOOSE in a press release earlier today. The canister, once again, was taken to the forests of Leonard County, Maryland, where it will be detonated later today.The Übernahme Group
The Ubernahme Group was founded in 1973 by Edward Henschel. At first, it was a small record store in Avariya, but as the economy changed, so did his business-he became a multi-millionare by 1977, building their multinational offices in the middle of Monroe C.D.
Since then, the Übernahme group has become a huge corporation, consisting of:
-A chain of megastores that sell Electronics, Video Games, and other things that hipsters, yuppies, and computer geeks can't live without.
-Founded in 1986 to cater to the new and emerging "Video Game, "Übernahme Games" is a booming company now, having created successful titles such as the controversial Criminal Germany
, a sandbox game revolving around a German thug working his way up the criminal ladder. It is currently headed by lead writer Marcus Henschel.
-After purchasing Northern Virginia's derelict rail line in 2008, the Übernahme group has rebuilt it, turning it into a commuter rail lines. Since the line re-opened in 2002, it has been booming with freight and passenger traffic. In the Übernahme Group's German nature, the company purchased and imported railcars of German Orgin, such as the Class 218
, which operates alongsideBi-Level commuter cars
and numerous freight cars.
-Ever since the Übernahme group purchased the "Tactical Solutions" private military company in 1999, it has since been converted not only as a PMC owned by the Übernahme group, but also as a Private Security Contractor and a military logistics company. It currently operates not only in Monroe C.D., but also in Australia, Russia, former Yugoslavia, and the Middle East. It is currently headed by Lucius Henschel, Edward's second son and Marcus's younger brother, violent by nature.Shaw Corporation
The Shaw Corporation was founded in 1991 by Ronald Shaw as a media conglomerate. Since it's founding, it owns numerous radio stations in the Monroe Metropolitan area, including City 7, which his daughter, Angela, hosts. They operate out of their head office in Crystal Valley
It consists of:
-The Shaw Corporation owns the largest fleets of taxis in the Monroe Metro area. They hire former convicts to save on costs and efficiency rates, since all their cabs have a bulletproof divider in the cab. Not for the driver's safety, but mainly for the passenger's.
-The media conglamerate owns numerous radio stations, such as "City 7", "Capitol Jam", and just recently took over "Radio Bloc", in order to please the Eastern European crowd, much to the Übernahme Group's disgust.
-Shaw Construction is a construction company that helped the Übernahme Group help restore the rail line before their falling out. Other than that, they helped construct the "Heat" stadium
in Colfax. They currently have plans to demolish half of Alexandria to make way for a housing development.
*It should also be worth noting that the Shaw Corporation has funded "Miniature Universe"
, one of the worlds largest model train layouts, located inside an abandoned warehouse near the U.S.D.D.Ammu-Nation
Thanks to Mayor Sciovaldi's loosened gun control laws (In favor of the Shaw Corporation)

-This German submachine gun has enough range to take out a guy on the other side of the street, but not enough power to stop him.

.American Auto Trader
Do you need a car fast, but don't want to go to a dealership? Then purchase a copy of "American Auto Trader". The monthly publication has gained much controversy since it's first publication in May 1988, due to the fact that you're purchasing cars, not trading them, but also because that you can purchase non-American cars. Let's take a look inside the pages, shall we?
*1989 Albany Ariant
-This two-door car is built for the everyman: it gets you to your office, your home, and your court hearing over custody of your kids. Just don't expect too much out of it-$2,000

*1974 Declasse Rhapsody

-This finely-built cargo van from Croatia features a leather interior, an oak wood dashboard, and a 5-gear transmission, if you bought it before the war.

A store located in a strip mall in Braddock that sells Japanese-related memorabilia and video games. Let's take a look at their selection, shall we? Yes...yes we will, regardless of your choice:
-A video game made by the Übernahme group, which takes place in 1989 Berlin. You play as Wolfgang "Wolf" Seiler, a thug from East Berlin who, after the fall of the Berlin Wall, immigrates to West Berlin, and falls into the criminal underworld of West Berlin.

*Missionaries 2: Save Them Again
-In this poorly-made sequel to "Missionaries: Playground of Salvation", you play as Frank Phelps, a racist, intolerant, homophobic minister from the midwest who goes to San Fierro to "Exterminate the city of bible-hatting fags". The game was criticized, not because of it's homophobic, intolerant, racist content, but because of it's poor technical specs. Enemies don't appear until the player is a few feet away from them, the AI is as smart as a mentally retarded housefly, and the vehicles handle like they're on air.
*Rock Hero: Ballads
-Tired of weak songs that last only 3 minutes? Do you and your friends want to strum on a plastic instrument-shaped controllers for twenty minutes? Need not worry, because "Rock Hero: Ballads" is out. Can you and your friends get through all 20 minutes of "Alice's Restaurant"?

-We’re guessing that you enjoy getting wasted on drugs and moving your body to the same song for six hours, or worse yet, one six hour song. If you want to experience this, just wander around the docks in Alexandria, and you’ll be sure to "Digital Underground". Be careful though. The police might show up and spoil your fun. But that’s got to be the least of your worries when pills are being shoved down your throat and the music won’t stop. The radio station "Raver Soundsystem" is broadcasted live from this club.KT Ferry
