Renraku

Renraku Computer Systems, headquartered in Chiba, Japan, is the fifth largest corporation in the world, and the third largest corporation in Japan. As the name implies, its business core is computer technology, especially memory storage and databases. Since it acquired one of the Corporate Court’s original founders, Keruba International, Renraku permanently seats a representative on the Corporate Court.

As a corporation, Renraku heavily sinks it’s roots into it’s cultural background. Every employee is given a ceremonial (albeit factory mass-produced) katana upon the signing of their contract to go with their new corporate SIN. And If an employee ever reaches the illustrious ranks of management, they’re also given an accompanying wakizashi in a grand ceremony. While the vast majority of these reside in workers offices, cubicles and homes and are only moved to be cleaned, Renraku management is very proactive in running workshops and courses in swordplay alongside other practical traditions such as origami and calligraphy.

The Renraku Red Samurai are its most elite internal security forces and are renowned worldwide as either heroic, dutiful paragons of the people or racist, unstoppable marshals of corporate injustice. Depending on who you ask.
