    OOC: Jacob's thing about Britain not caring seems to be off. And with it Spain's hopes of being able to attack Brazil for free.
    IC: We encourage Capitalists to invest in Belgium. Why? Because Belgium is right between the major Industrial areas of both Germany and France, Antwerp is taking off and becoming a very large port, all our factories are well connected by railroads to major Cities and,finally, We have extremely large Coal reserves and large Iron reserves in Walonia which will supply any factories you invest in in Belgium with good quality raw materials for cheap prices.

    Leopold I King of the Belgians


    OOC: Do these speeches actually encourage Capitalists to invest or do they just look nice?

    OOC: I cannot decide if doom only wants to stretch into so many fronts while fighting a civil war that 1/2 his empire slips away. I hope speeches do some good, I make a lot of them for little reason otherwise.

    OOC: I thought it merely meant that the US values would be posted in $ not £, and the conversion factor was 2:1 or so. (Though the £ was historically worth about $4.50 until they both closed the gold window for individuals following WWI, it even reached upwards of 1£ : $12.00 during the American Civil War, due to the costs of the war, but that was nothing compared to the inflation in the south. But given the Marxists rise, the £ is probably worth less, similar to how demand for cotton is down as a lot of the mills are now controlled by the Marxists.)

    OOC: Dear Fry, any known troop positions and numbers would be most welcome, but not exactly a necessity. Any unassigned troops would be particularly handy.

    P.S, is Tennessee effectively lawless or is there some control?

    OOC: Hey, you asked me to compromise my honour as a Gentleman. I didn't ask you to round house your mother off the Empire State building did I?

    Besides, after our little discussion about the weather, I thought you would see that Im not that bad.

    Either way, this just annoys Spain, who already hates me for god knows what reason.

    OOC: I figured if you were serious you wouldn't be concerned if I had the naval restrictions loosened at least to the point of....well having a real navy. Austria has a bigger navy than me atm.

    Edit: Hey Ireland has more debt than me also. Progress!

    As a rebuilding economy with many highly skilled workers and a very stable government and nation, France is a very good candidate for investment. Many homes are still being rebuilt, bridges fixed, railroads reconnected, factories reopened and countless other opportunities. Someone will see prosperity from the rebuilding French economy and the longer people wait the more likely someone else takes up the opportunity. Saving up for a better day is simply tossing aside the potential that is there now. Wealthy French or foreign investors have a very friendly government and an expanding economy to take part in with trade expanding heavily.

    What effect do IC posts have? Will spamming posts on the same issue get me any advantage?

    Alas, education reforms will not be of any use for, say, the next 10-15 turns? Long term indeed. But what you need is short to mid term income, so you can fend off those British bastards once they've crushed the damned commies.

    IC Posts have little impact, unless you do something immense like "CSA Abolishes Slavery!" and then you'll get couped.

    Anywho.

    Decision time! All nations must now state IC what monetary system they will use. Your options are:

    The British Pound (£)
    - The British Pound is the standard currency for all Financial Transactions in the World. But, due to the British Civil War, many nations have been weary of it's stability. The British Pound is currently worth .90 Gold Units.
    Used by: The United Kingdom, Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, The Austrian Empire, The German Federation

    The Deutsches Mark (ℳ)
    - The Deutsches Mark is the currency used only in the German Empire. Only now is it being considered as a currency for financial transactions due to the stability of the Mark compared to the British Pound. The Deutsches Mark is currently worth 1 Gold Units.
    Used by: The German Empire, The United Republics of Ireland, The Kingdom of Belgium, The Kingdom of Sweden, The Great Qing, The South African Republic, The Empire of Japan; The Kingdom of Sweden

    The French Franc (₣)
    - Arguably one of the weakest currencies of Europe, the French Franc is slowly recovering from it's post-war downfall, and its value is slowly rising. The French Franc is currently worth .70 Gold Units.
    Used by: The Second French Empire, Argentine Confederation

    The United States Greenback ($)
    - During the American Civil War, the United States of America removed itself from the Gold Monetary system to better finance the war. Due to the massive amount of printing of Greenbacks, there are a large number of them. The United States Greenback is currently worth 0.50 Gold Units.
    Used by: The United States of America

    The Confederate Dollar (C$)
    - The Confederate States, unable to effectively raise enough Gold to finance the war, resorted to printing unbacked paper money. Any nation, besides the Confederacy, that would use this would surely see their country collapse. The Confederate Dollar is currently worth 0.10 Gold Units.
    Used by: The Confederate States of America
