Virtuoso is a megacorporation with a wide-reaching influence over the galaxy. With their headquarters located on the ringworld of Torus, they serve as an unofficial galactic level government, taking over after the collapse of the Federation of Stellar Systems. The current CEO is Lucian Virtuoso.
Virtuoso desires to economically dominant the galaxy by standardizing all virtual reality technologies under its name. It does this supposedly in the name of offering universal personal convenience and safety. Though they like to maintain a good public image, it's an open secret that they have ties to the criminal underworld. They regularly engage in various forms of racketeering to exert control over the population. Their vast network of bribes and corruption also extends across the Federation's law enforcement and politics making it very difficult to hold them accountable for their actions.
Virtuoso's primary product is the sale of blockchain-based virtual real estate. As such, many of their purchases are for computational servers which can be used to mine for cryptocurrency. However, without any government powerful enough to regulate them, they have risen to become a monopoly. They have proceeded to buy smaller companies to facilitate their goals such as transportation, mining and even weapons development.
Virtuoso utilizes a paramilitary legion of AI's known as the Virtus, advanced humanoid robots that were programmed to follow the company's interests as well as that of Lucian himself. The Virtus serves as its main defense against the likes of pirates and other criminals, though Virtuoso is unafraid to use them against rival corporations.
