banking and investment company unlike most other Vilani megacorporations,
whose origins are shrouded in mystery. Zirunkariish was founded by the
noble Vilani family of Shiishuginsa (a member of which, Antiama, married
the Emperor Zhakirov in 679)

in the Imperium, and while
its capital reserves are gigantic, it usually chooses to invest them in
various trusts rather than in other megacorporations.
