Economy of Calbion

From MicrasWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

The Economy of Calbion is strongly based around the seafaring and entrepreneurial nature of the nation. The Calbain have always been a seafaring and trading people. Since the establishment of the Calbain state, this practice continued. Initially, the Calbain economy was largely dependent on the South Batavians, but in the late 16th century, the nation started to open trade with Shireroth, Babkha, Elwynn and Natopia. The Iron Company established presence in Calbion during the 1640s, which led to a great increase in trade and wealth. Today, Calbion remains committed to the idea of international free trade. Most foreign trade from Calbion is conducted through the Princely Exploration and Trading Company.

Through its network of trade, Calbion has a well-developed colonial past. At the height of the Calbain colonial empire in the late 1640s, the nation owned several substantial possessions in the East and the Skerries. In the 1680s, the Calbain government sought to reinvigorate the colonies. During the early years of the 1690s, many colonies were established in Keltia and Cibola, greatly adding to the GDP of Calbion.

Calbion is a major producer of raw materials such as hardwood, iron, copper and coal. In addition, Calbion has one of the worlds largest shipbuilding sectors, as well as a reasonably well-developed manufacturing industry. Due to Calbion being a relatively rural nation, agriculture remains the largest sector of industry. The keeping of, and provision for, livestock, mainly cows, sheep and chickens is a significant percentage of this.
