"Yes Admiral" The captian took the paper and leftnthe office.

OOC: If you want them there's nothing to stop you, but they're worthless systems. A few of them had resources, but they've been stripped.

May I ask why this is happening? And are you still part of NATO?

Yeah, we had free trade in the UTP, why end it?

The Interplanetary Republic has decided that it is unwise to retain so many alliances, the obligations are too far-reaching. Our economy took a hit, but we'll survive.

Tiburon: Xanthal was never a part of NATO.

Knootoss: Because Xanthal wishes to bring foreign trade to a minimum. Xanthal operated with a massive trade deficit anyway. Better to cut it off rather than let it catch up with us.

OOC: Damn, another good export market gone. :P Well... we'll cope.

There's also a UNAOTO trade pact that not that many nations have signed. Not sure why. But if you wanted trade in Xanthal, I would say that you should sign it, no?

OOC: Hmmm... I am a member of the UNAOTO. Thanks for the tip, I'll check it out. 8)

Xanthal has had it with international trade. Our economy functions fine on it's own power.
25-11-2003, 20:20
Yet your economy just hit the 'glass floor'. Hmmm... no trade seems like a bad idea.
~Some economist.

Well we don't have to worry then, not with our treaty with Xanthal.

It was a conscious decision, and one worth thinking about. Do we want to have more money with more drains, or less money with less drains? For the sake of simplicity and self-sufficiency, the Xanthalian government chose the latter.

UTP's credibility: +38743

25-11-2003, 21:09
I think that should be +38752, in all fairness.
