Megacorporations

Following a vast socio-economical collapse and a period of martial law, the United States government has had to rely on several megacorporations to survive. This has given them a veritable carte blanche to operate as they will.

The Megacorporations

  • Arasaka, a huge Japanese zaibatsu, megalomaniacal CEO obsessed with making Japan into a superpower. Likely nod to World War II arms manufacturer Arisaka.
  • Biotechnica, an Italian biotechnology, pharmacology, and cybernetics firm.
  • Euro Business Machines (EBM), an information technology corporation (an obvious nod towards IBM).
  • Infocomp, a commercial think-tank and information repository.
  • Kendachi, a Japanese armament company.
  • Merril, Asukaga & Finch , financial analysts. Quite probably an allusion to Merrill Lynch.
  • Microtech, a computer and electronics manufacturer.
  • Militech, American arms and mercenary contractor.
  • Mitsubishi-Sugo, a major transportation manufacturer.
  • Network News 54, an American broadcasting company.
  • Orbital Air, an African corporation with a monopoly on space transportation.
  • Petrochem, an energy company.
  • SovOil, a neo-Soviet oil giant, controlling a vast percentage of the petrochemicals market.
  • Trauma Team International, a private medical firm also dealing in medical insurance, prepaid disaster relief, prepaid CSAR, etc.
