A Megacorporation, or megacorp, derives from the combination of the prefix mega- with the word corporation. It refers to a corporation that is a massive conglomerate, holding monopolistic or near-monopolistic control over multiple markets (thus exhibiting both a horizontal and a vertical monopoly). Megacorps are so powerful that they can ignore the law, possess their own heavily armed (often military-sized) private armies, hold “sovereign” territory, and possibly even act as outright governments. They often exercise a large degree of control over their employees, taking the idea of “corporate culture” to an extreme.

Although many countries have competition laws (also known as antitrust laws) to prevent corporations from having mega-corporation characteristics, many of these have proved ineffective in controlling or limiting the power of growing corporate conglomerates. On the other hand, some countries protect a certain industry deemed important by mandating that only a single company, usually state owned, can operate in it.
