Sharurshid is an Imperial megacorporation believed to be of Vilani origin.


Description (Portfolio)[edit]

Sharurshid is one of the thirteen Imperial MegaCorporations in operation in 1116.

Commercial Competencies[edit]

  • Antiquities Trading
  • Interstellar Shipping & Trade
  • Luxury Goods Trading
  • Speculation

A Vilani trade and speculation corporation, with very little manufacturing capability, Sharurshid trades in luxury goods from all parts of the Imperium and many areas beyond.

  • Most rare Terran wines and spirits are carried on the starships of Sharurshid.
  • Sharurshid has a presence on Ekhor for the sustainable production and export of infertile Tonuetiuhl sunflowers throughout the Imperium.

Governance & Organization[edit]

The Sharurshid Trust is the overall owning concern of the Sharurshid megacorporation. The Trust maintains significant holdings, beyond the 46% ownership of the corporation itself, which it has delegated administrative responsibilities to Sharurshid corporate leadership. Therefore, it is easy to confuse what holdings are held by Sharurshid the company and the owning Sharurshid Trust. The Sharurshid Trust is held by the Vilani Badenkii, the wealthy Industrial magnates in pre-spaceflight Vland.

  • The Sharurshid Trust Administration Division: is responsible for the administration of Sharurshid Trust holdings, except for the ownership responsibilities of the corporation itself.
