National Economy

Long before the country began establishing relations with Knootoss and consequently signing the Knootian International Stability Treaty (for economic and diplomatic reasons), the government, backed by an overwhelming political drive, began moving the economy from a sluggish, centrally planned economy to a more market-oriented system. Whereas the system once operates within a political framework of strict communist control, the economic influence of non-state organizations and individual citizens has been steadily increasing. The authorities switched to a system of household and village responsibility in agriculture in place of the old collectivization, increased the authority of local officials and plant managers in industry, permitted a wide variety of small-scale enterprises in services and light manufacturing, and opened the economy to increased foreign trade and investment. Output quadrupled as the country establishes a laissez faire economy in a record time of a single decade. The country is now taking the region by storm, as it's economic competitors are being outgrown by this sudden recovery.
