Dingo Enterprises is one of the oldest private companies in Natopia. Started by Nathan Waffel-Paine it remains under control of his descendants, although the structure and operation of the company has remained secretive for its entire history. It began business on Micras in 1497 selling widgets, small useless trinkets that were a fad until 1510. Widgets were a thinly veiled alternative taxing mechanism, to ensure Natopos paid out as salaries returned back to the government treasury. Widgets had no purpose except to be inserted into one's forum signature to show wealth. Dingo Enterprises sponsors the Natopia national football team.
