The Alcintra is an association of Lendosa's largest, wealthiest, and most powerful private companies. Its membership is quite exlusive, and it is difficult for a company to join the Alcintra. In many ways, the Alcintra functions as a lobbying and public relations body for the business sector, acting as a powerful advocate for the interests of major corporations. It was founded in the 250s as a means of ensuring that the government took the business world's views into account when formulating policy, and is now regarded as the de facto spokesperson for all major companies (even if they are not actually members).
Many people, particularly those with left-wing political views, dislike and distrust the Alcintra, believing it to be self-interested, greedy, and a threat to democratic processes. It is alleged by some parties, such as the Communists, that the Alcintra has far too much influence on government policy, and there are those who actually want the Alcintra banned. The Alcintra, however, claims that it is merely protecting the rights of its members from overzealous government regulation, and that the Alcintra is an important (even essential) component in Lendosa's ongoing economic prosperity.
There are currently twenty-one members of the Alcintra, listed below.
There are a number of notable omissions from the list, with several "big name" companies not appearing. This is most likely for one of the following two reasons. Firstly, all members of the Alcintra are privately owned companies - state companies have never tried to join, and most likely would be refused in any case. This means that major corporations such as Lendosan Airlines and Celista (a telephone company) are not represented. Secondly, Alcintra rules bar the admission of companies which are majority owned by companies which are already members - this rules out well-known companies such as Arianse (a computer manufacturer) and Safiro (a petroleum retailer), which are both owned by Lanatira Technologia. (A special exception has been made for Siriana, a computer software manufacturer, for historical reasons).
