I know that Aztech IS the state in Aztlan, but does that not go against the
profit principle. What motive does the Mega have for running the country
like Aztech is running Aztlan. Would a puppet state with direct ties to the
Mega not be more efficient? (NB I don't own the Aztlan book so this may be
the case anyway)

It is interseting from an organisation viewpoint to know just how to go
about taking over a country with money. What happened to ORO, the original
corporation that was unded with cocaine money? Were the funded with Medelin
drug money? What happened to the cartels? They would sure make a cool
article for NERPS: Organisations.
