The following is a timeline of world events in the Savage Cyberpunk setting.
- World War II ends with the surrender of the Empire of Japan.
- As part of the terms of Japanese surrender at the end of World War II, the zaibatsus that dominated the Japanese economy were either dissolved or reorganized. This power vacuum led to the creation of keiretsus, groups of companies with interlocking business relationships and shareholdings. One of these keiretsus was centered on the Shiawase family, and would later become the megacorporation of the same name.
- The Shiawase Decision establishes extraterritoriality and makes the Shiawase Corporation the first megacorporation.
- Ares Macrotechnology is founded by the merger of General Motors with numerous companies worldwide, all owned by Nicholas Aurelius.
