The GENOM Corporation is a powerful industrial entity and the main antagonistic force in Bubblegum Crisis. They are the leading developers in Boomer technology and their artificially intelligent products can be found just about everywhere. They have built and supplied Boomers to government bodies, the military and even the general public. They dominate the computer technologies market and enjoy a great deal of political and financial influence.
GENOM all but controls the city of Mega-Tokyo and the rest of Japan. Many of their operations are illicit and they have consistently abused their power in order to advance their technology and increase their profits, further consolidating their influence across the world. Their criminal activities in Mega-Tokyo are often disrupted by the Knight Sabers, a group of armour-clad vigilantes who have dedicated themselves to bringing GENOM down.
