- "Yes, in the year 2080, government began to give way to corporations."
- —Rip Hunter on the rise of Kasnia Conglomerate[src]
In the year 2080, governments made way for corporations to become governments. In doing this, the Kasnia Conglomerate was formed, promoting no crime, pollution or poverty, but only allowing stockholders to have rights. It came to be owned by Tor Degaton and a board of directors. Over the past century and a half, the nation began to make use of Ray Palmer's A.T.O.M. Exosuit, engineering it in to a robot army to patrol the streets. Eventually, Per Degaton killed his father, considering him to be weak, allowing Vandal Savage to act as his proxy. In doing so, Savage used Kasnia as a foothold for his later rise to power.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow
- The Kasnia Conglomerate is likely a successor state to the Republic of Kasnia.
