Good question.

In the US, if I remember correctly, clauses refering to the "residence" of 
corporations generally are treated as referring either to the state where 
their corporate head office is, or in the state in which they are 
incorporated.  However, I'm not totally sure, and this sort of thing is messy 
enough (particularly since the two often differ) that it's probably a good 
idea to ask a lawyer about this.  There may be some other term which covers 
corporate "residence" better.
