Eastern Tiger Corporation (or ETC) is Korea's largest corporation, headquartered in Pusan, Korea. It is a member of the Pacific Prosperity Group. Since 2050, Eastern Tiger has rapidly expanded into Australia, Brunei, the Salish-Shidhe Council, Seattle, and Hawai'i. Built on the foundation of heavy manufacturing and petrochemicals, it has also diversified into biotechnology, entertainment, consumer goods, and agriculture. Subsidiaries include Daewoo Corporation, LG-Haas, Pohang Iron & Steel, South Korea Energy, and Haiu Biotek.
During the years following the Matrix Crash 2.0, Eastern Tiger fared well, given the circumstances, due to its strong industrial assets. Having acquired Pacific Rim Communications, Eastern Tiger was all set to sign on MSP contracts for telecommunications and augmented reality throughout Asia and North America.
The current CEO is Se Jong Lee. The Seattle branch is headed by Yong Jo Moon. Both are said to be cautious and shrewd businessmen, with little ties to the other PPG corporation other than mutual protection and survival. Se Jong Lee is said to have some grudges against Renraku and Mitsuhama, due to business practices that blocked ETC from expanding.
