Shiawase Corporation (シアワセ, “happiness”), headquartered in Osaka, Japan, is the eighth largest corporation in the world and the largest Japanese corporation. It is generally considered the first megacorporation, defined by the Shiawase Decision in 2001. It was founded by the Shiawase family (幸 or 倖) in post-WWII Japan, and to the current day, it remains a family-owned corporation. In 2060, Korin Yamana married Mitsuko Shiawase and Shiawase purchased the remains of Fuchi Industrial Electronics. Japan’s Emperor Yasuhito married Shiawase Hitomi, an otaku, in 2064. The machinations of the members of the Shiawase family led to a dramatic shift of power after the Matrix Crash 2.0.
