Hong Kong

A independent city-state that was once attached to what was the People’s Republic of China. Since winning it’s independence it’s been governed by a council of corporate executives who act as the governments legislative and executive branches. Wuxing Incorporated is strongest amongst them, due to city being it’s home turf and site of it’s global HQ, but Mitshuma Computer Technologies and Renraku are also notable presences.

While Wuxing vehemently denies any links, the corporation originally came about as a Triad front for money laundering purposes that eventually grew so profitable it far outstripped it’s illegal leash and went fully legitimate. So while the traids are still very active in the city, there are uneasy understandings between the syndicates. The Yellow Lotus often even act on behalf of Wuxing when dealing with less legal avenues of business.

The simultaneously independent but hub-like nature of the city means there’s always reliable work for anyone looking to warm their hands on the friction between the major players. Plus the long standing cultural diversity of the city does a grand job at disguising out of towners. At least until they open their mouth.
