The largest Corporations, the 10 AAA Megacorporations, own a seat on the Corporate Court, the arbitral body over all worldwide corporations (a sort of "Corporate United Nations"). The AA Corporations are multinational corporations with extraterritoriality, while the A Corporations are just beginning to have a multinational presence. The Sixth world's biggest fortunes, represent large individual fortunes.

AAA Megacorporations[edit | edit source]

The Corporate Court rates AAA the largest and most important corporations. Also called Prime Megacorporations, AAA-rated corporations enjoy the same extraterritorial privileges as AA megacorporations. They are also given, at least, a representative on the Corporate Court for their importance.

Currently (as of 2070), the following corporations are listed as AAA:

The following corps have held AAA status in the past but no longer do so:

  • Cross Applied Technologies: Cross ascended to AAA status after the Corp War of 2060 by obtaining the seat recently vacated by Renraku but subsequently lost that seat during the Matrix Crash 2.0.
  • Fuchi Industrial Electronics: Fuchi at one point was the second-most powerful corporation in the world, but the three-way factionalization at the top eventually caused it to fall. In 2059, Richard Villiers withdrew his assets from Fuchi to form Novatech, taking with him Fuchi's corporate seat. Shortly thereafter, Shikei Nakatomi split with the second third of Fuchi and joined Renraku. This remnant, under the control of Korin Yamana merged with Shiawase, as Fuchi effectively ceased to exist by 2060.
  • Novatech: The Villiers faction of Fuchi inherited the former megacorp's position on the Corporate Court. However, it never established as successful a position as Fuchi did and made some bitter enemies with former colleagues now working for Renraku and Shiawase. Furthermore, Novatech came under financial assault from Art Dankwalther, an ex-Fuchi accountant who was laid off and later inherited a large sum of money from Dunkelzahn's will, which Art used to exact a personal vendetta against Novatech. In response, Novatech made a massive IPO, going public coincidentally at the same time the AI Deus emerged on the East Coast Stock Exchange. In the aftermath of Matrix Crash 2.0, Novatech merged with AA corporations Erika and Transys Neuronet to form NeoNET, which in turn inherited Novatech's seat on the Corporate Court and sits there in its stead.

The following organizations were founding members of the Corporate Court and hold permanent seats on it.

AA Megacorporations[edit | edit source]

Corporations are classified as AA by the Corporate Court if they have a strong multinational presence and a good stability. Nations signatory of the Business Recognition Accords must grant them extraterritorial rights. AA corporations are usually called megacorporations, although the term is often mistakenly considered to only refer to 7-10 AAA Prime Megacorporation members of the Corporate Court.

A Corporations[edit | edit source]

Corporations are classified as A or Third Tier by the Corporate Court if they are present in at least two different countries. They are also called multinationals.
