Era: New Era

Ling-Standard Products LRC, a former Imperial Megacorp. In antebellum times the company produced everything short of the kitchen sink. Compared to most of its Imperial era brethren, LSP was quiet and modest, and its success had less to do with chicanery and scheming than with solid corporate policies and management. But the desolation of the Imperial environment has given way to the extremely fluid and competitive markets of the Regency, and LSP has had to struggle to maintain its dominance in the face of new corporate competition. That it is still the largest company in the Regency is testament to its management and corporate vision, and it remains the benchmark by which all corporate activity is compared.

LSP is still a primarily general manufacturer, though its starships and vehicles are the most noticeable of its massive product line. It maintains its headquarters at Lunion, and regional headquarters at Tobia and Dekha. It has shipyards at Rhylanor, Lunion and Strouden (both the largest private yards in the Marches), Pallique and Mora, Ffudn and Glisten, Edenelt, Tobia, Seleen, Starn (largest private yard in the Regency), Isurkun, Dekha (Plant 12) and HRD/Vincennes, Qevar and Pikha.
