Region: The Hole To Hide In

Blayredeshia wrote:RP: Limited Autarky
In order to difuse tensions with nations such as Basaran; the Confederacy has halted naval trade in order to attempt to provide the Basar’s with less means of instigating conflict. The Confederacy’s main source of imported goods now only comes from the nations of Ponticianre, Kavastor, and Koysala who the Confederacy has requested only ship goods to Blayredeshia via land routes across the continent. This form of limited trade and autarky has not come without costs. Major industries all over Blayredeshia have instantly felt the immense sting and now farmers across rural Blayredeshia are being subsidized by the Blayredeshian treasury to produce more wheat and corn instead of the cashcrops more commonly grown throughout the Confederacy such as cotton and tobacco. Many wonder how long this will last although it could be prolonged via bailouts from the rich landowners and businessmen who have monopolized Blayredeshia’s market such as the Brecks and Lees but even then such an act could only last so long. Only the future will show if the land trade networks between the Blayredeshians and their previously mentioned allies will be able to sustain this limited form of autarky.

RP: Trade Deal

With the news of Blayredeshian Confederacy halting their naval trade reaching the Schismian markets, nervous investors and businesses have begun to worry that the loss of such a close and instrumental trade partner may cause the Commonwealth's economy to fluctuate enough to spark panic and create even more chaos in the Atomic Schism. As such, several private companies and small business owners located in the Northern Schism have petitioned the government, more specifically Chancellor Rhodes, to negotiate with Blayredeshia in order to prevent yet another potential recession in the nation. Furthermore, in Chancellors Rhodes's interests to remove Kavastori influence from the Commonwealth and lessen their economic hold on the region, Rhodes has proposed to the Blayredeshian that the governments resume naval trading between eachother through the use of the Atomic Schism's Merchant Navy. Chancellor Rhodes remains confident that by doing so, tensions between Basaran and Blayredeshia will remain low, while the Northern Schism and the Blayredeshian ports continue to receive steady imports.
