The Deal - Aughuski Groupin rose up out of the ashes of of Kazakhstan to become one of the leading Eurasian State construction firms, and as one of the few without military contracts or ties. Aughuski began building churches, mosques and chapels as well as other municipal and civil engineering projects and had basic infrastructure in place when the the neo-soviet Eurasian Alliance swept into the region. Pre-existing as a non-military contractor, Aughuski was picked up whole and placed in charge of developing the eastern and south eastern Eurasian territories as a bulkhead against China and to reinvigorate the region. Aughuski accomplished this by being a very openly religious corporation, to the point of having it's own dedicated Sunni Islamic jurisdiction and 'demi-caliphate' across the region. Rather than having CEOs, BODs or other normal positions, Aughuski is operated by a council of Imams and a Shah.
Mascot- Aughuski is represented by the Arabic name of the month of August (Ab) depicted in gold against a white background. There is no other accepted symbol.
Rituals - Aughuski Groupin is a conservative traditionalist religious corporation and follows the tenets of Islam, including dietary restrictions, prayer, and other seemingly archaic traditions in the Cosmic Era. This includes praying towards the radioactive ruins of Mecca, not eating unclean things, or abstaining from indulgent behavior, including SimSense, SimPorn, and generally anything to do with CogNet outside of business. It pays well for it's demands, and those who go against it can expect to be dismissed from the corporation, face public censure and ostracism and even exile from the Aughuski 'caliphate' not being allowed to work for any of the subsidiary or associated companies and corporations.
Rewards and Punishments - Aughuski is a zaibatsu style megacorporation, and owns it's infrastructure from the top end design firms down to the contractor companies that fill the vending machines and clean the toilets. Everyone who does well, and toes the line will eventually end up in the job that suits them. Problem causers and zealots are typically shaken down out of the system to the bottom tiers. Rewards are financial stability, and legalized polygamy, but only with approval from the Imams. Punishments are ritual disfigurement, being sent to the Security Corps (dealing with wastelanders, Noddites, and the Chinese border, which is also a wasteland zone, exile from the Aughuski zaibatsu, to incarceration in one of the corp's three jail facilities, with the most infamous being the Leng Cryo-Detention Center. (not actually cryogenic, just an absurdly cold double max prison near Mongolia.
