Zinairian Military Surplus Sale

The Zinairian military has almost always had a troublesome surplus of military equipment, but recently, the entire Zinairian tank fleet was retired and replaced by the Nakíl. Therefore, the government has taken this opportunity to begin the formalized sale of their military surplus to non-threatening nations. To broker the deals, we, Zinairian General Suppliers, have been selected for our trustworthiness, customer service and mathematical prowess.

Guidelines and Rules

1. We will do the math for you, or you can do it yourself for a 2% discount (that you should factor into your calculations).
2. When we're out, we're out. This is surplus and we will not be receiving any more shipments. However, depending on our needs or what new products we purchase, new items or more of an old one may come up for sale.
3. Prior to confirmation, we will insure that your nation is not a threat to ours.
4. You must be able to pay for what you order within ten NS years (ten RL days). Your defense budget can be calculated at NSTracker (
5. A full list of Zinairian military assets can be found here ( Please contact us if you are interested in a special order.

To: The Republic Corivia

Thank you for your order. Unfortunately, your nation does not have a defense budget. However, we have noticed that it does have a substantial welfare budget. Therefore, we will bill these tanks as "SUVs for underprivileged families." We hope to do more business with you in the future. However, should we have further dealings, we ask you do not send a check as many Zinairian banks are hesitant to cash ones for millions of dollars. We would like to suggest that you wire the money instead.

Message from the Simmons-Fitzerald Arms Company

We wish to negotiate a price to purchase your entire stock of small arms and grenade launchers, for marketing on the retail level within Allanea.

OOC: Yay! 11,500 posts!
01-06-2008, 11:46
To: The Simmons-Fitzerald Arms Company

Although we appreciate the offer, there will be no such deal. The government of Zinaire and we, Zinairian General Suppliers, do not wish to be party to supplying civilians with grenade launchers and other weapons which are dangerous in all hands, especially those which are untrained or otherwise wrong.

After a few minutes of staring at the letter from the Zinairians in perfect disbelief, the Import Division of the Simmons-Fitzerald Arms Company returned to the more urgent business of finding a different supplier.
