[AAA] Renraku Computer Systems

Headquarters: Chiba, Japan
President/CEO: Haruhiko Nakada

If any corporation’s name is mud in Seattle it’s Renraku Computer Systems. Their downtown arcology was supposed to be a crowning achievement of engineering, the nerve center for their North American operations. Now, thanks to some serious fuck-ups and a rogue AI, it’s low-income and government housing for the homeless. The arcology incident and everything that followed were a terrible embarrassment to the Japanese megacorp and a PR disaster of unprecedented proportions. When it was all said and done, Renraku’s board of directors had little choice but to hand what remained of the arcology over to the metroplex government and withdraw from Seattle with what little dignity they had left. They relocated their North American operations to San Francisco.

Of course, it would be nearly impossible for a multinational corporation the size of Renraku to divest itself of all assets in Seattle.
The company still owns numerous subsidiaries, mainly in the optronics, electronics, and software markets. They just don’t advertise their connection with the parent company back in Chiba. Renraku logos are conspicuously absent, except when anti-company activists plaster them up around a site in AR as a means of protest.
