Numerous Organizations make their home in the three systems.
Economic Security Council - After the last Corporate War, the mega-corporations
saw the need for an organization to arbitrate their disputes. The council consists
of representative from fifteen corporations and other major entities in the three
systems. Five of these seats are permanent. One is held by each of the four
privately-held mega-corporations while the fifth seat belongs to the Church of
Destiny (see below). The remaining other ten representatives are elected from
other entities an economic interest in the three systems, including publicly-held
mega-corporations, system governments, sports leagues, and even criminal
organizations like the Mystères (see below). These non-permanent members
serve for a term of five years, with two being elected each year.
Economic Security Police - The ESP is the enforcement are of the ECS. They are
charged with ensuring the continuation of commerce in the three systems. They
have wide-sweeping police powers granted to them by the ESC.
The Mystères - The Mystères are a loose conglomerate of organized crime
families. The Mystères are divided into five Nanchons - Radha, Pethro, Ghede,
Kongo, and Nago. Each of these nachons is subdivided into families, each of
which usually specializes in a particular category of criminal activity, though that
certainly doesn't stop them from dabbling in others.
Sports Leagues - As has always been the case, humans continue to be obsessed
with sports. In addition to the sports that they brought with them to the stars,
humanity has learned to enjoy some new sports.
Combat sports have become the most popular category of sports entertainment in
the three systems. While personal combat sports remain popular and various
combat racing circuits draw sizable crowd, the team sports are by far the most
popular. Both men's and women's Battlefield Recreational Athletics Leagues
exist, with every nation and mega-corporation fielding at least one team in each
Church of Destiny - One by-product of the destruction of the Earth was a uniting of
humanity in a way that no one had dared to dream was possible. It didn't happen
over night, but it did happen. The three major Abrahamic religions stopped
fighting one another over their differences and started to embrace their many
similarities. United, these once disparate groups became a monolithic entity with
considerable political and economical clout. Currently the Church of Destiny is the
largest organized religion in the three systems.
The militant arm of the Church of Destiny is private army known as the Sovereign
Holy Order of Consecrated Knights. SHOCK provides security at all COD facilities
and protects high-ranking members of the church. In a brilliant public relations
coup, the COD also uses SHOCK to distribute aid to those in need. Because of
this, the general public sees SHOCK as a humanitarian organization, making them
the most heavily armed and beloved charity in the three systems.
