Corp Report: Efficiantum StreetCleaning

Area of Function: Sanitation

Number of Personnel: Approximately 200

Overview: Efficiantum StreetCleaning was once the most successful public cleaning Corp. But over the course of its operations, it has slowly been losing its share of its industry. A major loss came when the Corp invested heavily into experimental technologies, technologies that have thus far yielded no known results.

Despite its reduced influence and size, Efficiantum StreetCleaning has proven remarkably resilient to being bought out by its competitors. While its services have reduced in quality with its reduction in size, it nevertheless is able to remain solvent. Close investigation of its finances suggest that this continued operation are unlikely to be able to last indefinitely. Eventually, they will be forced to shutter their operations and lose their assets to more aggressive competitors.

Infiltration has been slow, but recently a member of the Corp has been approached to offer intelligence on the Corp’s operations. With luck, greater knowledge should be available within a few month’s time.

Corp Report: City Hall

Area of Function: Law Enforcement and Law Creation

Number of Personnel: Approximately 6,000

Overview: City Hall is the cornerstone of Efficiantum. Without its presence and its guidance, the city would fall into chaos. It alone of all the Corps keeps to the principles of the Foundation Charter, and it alone has the strength to enforce its edicts. While its personnel count is small, every employee of City Hall is empowered to carry lethal weaponry, and is able to make arrests of those found in violation of the city’s laws.

In addition, the Hunter Council and the Forthwright Plan are both loyal only to City Hall and to its High Autocrat, the Mayor. These resources assure that the power and the strength of City Hall are used precisely where they are needed, rather than wasting their energy in places where it is not necessary.

No infiltration of City Hall is necessary, all employees instead must stand for biannual loyalty tests to assure that they have not been co-opted by outside influences. City Hall also maintains a small number of off-the-books employees working for other Corps in order to help keep its information network up to date.

Corp Report: Medic’s Guild

Area of Function: Medical Licensing and Health Insurance

Number of Personnel: Approximately 20,000

Overview: The Medic’s Guild is one of the oldest Corps in the city, and the only one to pre-date the Foundation Charter. As such, it has a special relationship with City Hall, though fortunately it has a history of conservative High Autocrats, keeping the Corp from engaging in disruptive practices. The Medic’s Guild has remained in its position as a Great Corp since the establishment of the Foundation Charter, and seems unlikely to move from that position.

The services offered by the Medic’s Guild are invaluable to other Corps. They handle the licensing of all medical practitioners within Efficiantum and manage the insuring of all Corp employees. They also fastidiously hunt down unlicensed medics in order to assure their control of medical practice within the city.

Infiltration remains largely passive, and shows little of interest. The Corp remains stable, and unless they are especially careful to hide their plans, it has little interest in expanding beyond its current size and function.

Corp Report: The Commissariat

Area of Function: Food Production and Distribution

Number of Personnel: Approximately 50,000

Overview: The Commissariat is the most recent addition to the Great Corps, formed when Efficiantum Open Markets merged with Farfield Grains, to create a single Corp with control over the production and distribution over all food stuffs within Efficiantum. Its sheer size, though, makes it prone to internal strife, and much of its current energy, and that of its High Autocrat, is spent on securing stability, rather than expanding further or engaging in more aggressive ploys.

Infiltration has been successful on multiple levels, which confirms the levels of strife. The High Autocrat has a relatively small number of loyal and active Agents, and so the higher ranked Cogs and Luminaries are currently struggling to achieve dominance within the Great Corp. Since most of these internal factions are opposed to one another, it is likely that these struggles will continue indefinitely.

Efforts may be required if these politics prevent the Commissariat from performing its function. The situation will be monitored carefully to assure that their actions do not excessively destabilize the city.

Corp Report: CrossCity SideSweeping

Area of Function: Sanitation

Number of Personnel: Approximately 500

Overview: CrossCity SideSweeping currently owns a plurality of the work done in the cleaning of public spaces. It began small, but pursued an aggressive policy of mergers and acquisitions, accumulating first its smallest rivals before moving on to larger Corps. Though a few have resisted the efforts of CrossCity SideSweeping, that resistance has proven insufficient in stopping their rise.

Nevertheless, their industry is relatively small, likely unable to form any challenge to become a Greater Corp, unless it radically expands its service area. Attempts to infiltrate the Corp have been limited to date, and unsuccessful, though an individual believed to be one of their Agents with a surgically altered appearance recently was found deceased by the docks. It is unknown what operation the Agent was on, but it is likely that the Corp will soon begin searching for a new Agent.
