From the introduction
Ra-Industries has always been a leader in cutting edge agricultural genetic engineering on Mars. Their past research and development has greatly helped bring Mars’ agriculture up to par with, and even surpass, Earth’s in some areas.
However, as the competition becomes more intense, Ra-Industries has been forced to constantly come up with new developments. Unfortunately, the Martian government endorses its own genetic labs, and subtly enforces severe restrictions on Ra-industries and their extreme experimentations.
