This is only tangentially related, but a few years ago, I was in a federal courtroom to watch a corporation (Emerson Electric) plead guilty to felony fraud charges. No individuals were named. It was just a corporation, acting alone! Alas for this discussion, I don't think Emerson's masterful attorneys invented a fitting pronoun. Nor did the judge, who made a number of sarcastic comments about wishing some person from the corporation would have shown up, invent a way for the corporation to spend time in jail!
