The Shinra Electric Power Company is a large corporation
that pretty much runs the planet. They have a monopoly on the
power, the waterways, and the gas pipelines of the world. They
also have millitary and pollitical power and have develloped
millitary power including biological weaponds and a space program.
They build gigantic Makou draining power plants in city's such
as Nibulheim and Midgar. Five years ago their plant in Nibelheim
exploded, killing most of the residents of the town including the
wife of Barret Wallace who is the current leader of the terrorist
group Avalanche, leveling the entire town. This incident also
resulted in the apparent death of Sephiroth, the greatest soldier
on the planet. The Shinra reactor in Midgar city was recently
destroyed in a terrorist attack by the Avalanche. The company
has no concern for the planet's well being therefore the
Avalanche is dedicated to stopping them at every turn.
