Let's Put the Future Behind Us
Zhongguo Yinhang (simplified Chinese: 中国银行), also known as ChinaBank, is the largest finance and banking zaibatsu on Earth. Once one of the big four commercial banks of the People’s Republic of China, the old Bank of China Limited was fully privatised in the early 2100s due to the wholesale collapse of the Chinese economy. Upon the sale being announced, a controlling share of Bank of China Limited was purchased by the Bank of East Asia, and the two companies were amalgamated into ChinaBank.
Since the merger, Zhongguo Yinhang has only increased its dominance of the international foreign exchange and commodities markets, and has been formally recognised by the International Monetary Fund as both the largest multinational corporation and the fourth largest economy in the world (behind only the Boston-Atlanta Metropolitan Axis, Hong Kong-Macau and Japan).
