Zio Matrix is a corporation within the JSDF that deals with military supply, but is known more for its AC parts. It is one of the second-generation corporations that succeeded the original corporate groups from the Subterranean Era.
After the Joint Exon-UNSC attack on Nippon, the entire population of Wakoku retreated underground and initiated the "Layered" protocol. When problems arose with the procedures here, a great fight broke out until the survivors of the underground conflict escaped back to the ruined surface, which was slowly being repaired and restored by JSDF personnel from other Nippon worlds. From the ashes of one of the older corporations rose Zio Matrix. They are the ones who unearthed the Murakumo plans found from the civilization that existed prior to the Great Destruction to reform Nippon in such a way that it would be suitable for human habitation once again.
Being well-established, they dominate the larger military corporation Emeraude. After following through on the Murakumo plans, Zio was able to establish itself as the dominant corporation throughout the JSDF. However, their own work causes them to come under assault from corporate rival Emeraude, resulting in a war between the two, which draws the attention of the primary Nippon government.
