The wealthiest megacorporation around, the first Sovereign Megacorp and the largest of a group of five corporate entities, all financial houses, that between them own the bulk of the shares of the largest of the world’s other merged corporations.
After the crash, the Federal Reserve, Fanny and Freddie and other U.S. Federal financial agencies got split off from the government and privatized. They went on a spending spree, buying up other bankrupt national banks including those of the UK, Germany and China then funded the construction of Hightower, the O’Neill cylinder at L5. The resulting megacorporation is now HUB, which declared the cylinder sovereign territory in 2039. From there they control the world’s financial commerce and own significant shareholdings in many other corporations. Their logo features a five-sided pentagon, leading to much conspiracy talk of the Illuminati.
