Cyberpunk 2077 background world view part.8 <Arasaka>

In the 1940s, shortly after the end of World War II, Japan was defeated by the United States, the Soviet Union and China. However, in the Japanese cities, the smoke of war has not disappeared, and the painful voice of civilians can still be heard everywhere. A man with incomplete limbs, looking at the ruins of the city, vowed to revitalize the country. And this is Saburo Arasaka.
After the war, Japan seized the opportunity and developed rapidly. Arasaka was one of the leaders. Saburo Arasaka took over his father’s company in 1960 and built on it. He subverted the world by extortion, bribery, extortion, assassination and kidnapping. For example, he exposed the scandals of some important people and often explored the personal privacy of politicians, celebrities and other top management of companies. He uses these means to deal with business rivals, in order to obtain more influence and information of business war. In addition to these, he also uses the security department to steal data information from his customers, and then uses the world situation trend in the data to influence business decisions, so as to obtain the maximum business benefits.
After decades of development, banking, security and manufacturing became the three pillars of Arasaka. Until 2020, Arasaka became one of the most powerful companies in the world. Over the years, Arasaka’s wealth has increased tenfold, and the centenarian has become one of the richest people on the planet.
By 2020, Saburo Arasaka is 101 years old, and the CEO of the company has been inherited by his son, but for Saburo in the wheelchair, this is just a scam, and the decision-making power of the company is still in the hands of the old man.
Arasaka’s most famous department is its security department. When most people think of Arasaka, they think of the world’s well-known black guards. Arasaka is everywhere in our daily life, even in the night city of 2077, we can see the large-scale Arasaka logo. These obvious trademarks are used in buildings, vehicles, electronic equipment and other items. As a general rule, if you are in danger, as long as you have enough money to hire Arasaka, then your safety problems can be fully guaranteed.
Arasaka controls most of the city’s economic lifeblood, but he still meets the enemy “Militech”, who is equally powerful.
The contradiction between the two is growing, and the war is beginning. The war lasted until the nuclear explosion in Arasaka ended. After the war, Arasaka’s power was not as strong as before. The Japanese government also took the opportunity to destroy Arasaka’s troops, and killed Saburo Arasaka, while Saburo’s head was also handed over to the United States. A generation of legends have come to an end. Arasaka is now under the full control of the Japanese government. By 2077, Arasaka was still large in the city, and the company still had a strong military force.
