History

MATA was originally founded by a Slovakian entrepreneur in the 21st century. The company then specialized in drop-shipping mint tea from Sri Lanka. Following its unprecendented financial success, it branched out into the tech world.

MATA played a major role in restructualizing the theatre of global politics. Throughout its existence, through armed conflicts and vast economic gains, it acquired every country in the world, beginning the era of a unified global GovCorp governance. Step by step, the GovCorp banned the use of free software, development of open hardware and slowly took steps towards removing all knowledge of computing from the people's minds. This resulted in what is only known as the Corpo-Foss war. A destructive conflict between the GovCorp and proponents of computer freedom.

After the global Corpo-Foss war, which resulted in a major destruction of the planet, MATACORP retreated into gigantic Metacities, spread about the world, while the ravaged land outside became home to free people and liberated machines.
