Costello Enterprises, abbreviated CE or CENT, was a major interstellar corporate state. Founded early in the 21st century by Christopher Costello, it played a pivotal role in the development of humanity during the Information Age. For a long time, it had a strong foothold in all major space and technology-related industries. It existed for over five hundred years before becoming obsolete and dissolving into Costello's personal assets.

By the end of its first century, CE had devised an effective structural, post-Singular corporate layout scheme that it would stick to, for the most part. The new CE was comprised of nine primary divisions spanning the most vital industries.

CE Merchant NavyEdit

The CE Merchant Navy (often referred to as the CE Merchant Fleet to avoid a negative militaristic connotation), was the branch responsible for naval warfare in space. It wasn't a merchant navy in the traditional sense of the word (it didn't serve any political state), but a proper private maritime force. In certain instances it would ally itself with a sovereign state, or engage in all-out war, however, its primary purpose was to defend CE's goods in-transport. Individual members of this branch were either naval officers, or members of a joint Navy-Security task force, referred to as the CE Merchant Marines, or CE Fleet Security, which served as the branch's armed troops.

CE MunitionsEdit

CE Political Action CommitteeEdit

The CE Political Action Committee (abbreviated CEPAC) was tasked with representing the interests of CE in political climates. Though CE generally practiced a policy of strict non-interventionism in sovereign governments, CEPAC exerted its authority over colonial habs[2] of the company's own doing. CEPAC supported mercantile policies, such as the establishment of market regulation and the imposition of tariffs on shipments of goods from competing sources.
