Cartel on Neodymium and TechnetiumPosted: February 24, 2013
With two major collations forming cartels to control the flow of raw moon materials, I wanted to take my database of moon minerals and cross reference that with sovereignty data to see just how much control each cartel holds on each respective moon type.
Consider these numbers a back-of-the-envelope calculation.
OTEC: Organization of Technetium Exporting Corporations operated by the CFC.
I’m showing that 22.7% of all Neodymium moons are under TEST’s direct control, meaning that the moons are in HBC space. If we expand the coverage to the CFC and their allies, this group has 50.7% of all the moons.
The OTEC grip on Technetium is much stronger, with 81.1% of the moons under CFC and ally control.
Geographically Neodymium is far more dispersed with moons covering 36 different regions. Technetium is mainly concentrated in the North and only spans 23 regions.
CFC’s control over Technetium is much stronger than HBC’s over Neodymium.
