    The United Kingdoms of Sweden and Norway will move to the Mark, given the strong cultural ties and economic prosperity in the German Empire.

    Hey, what about us Swedes and Norwegians, to a lesser extent the Danes too?

    In regards to currency, the pound is tempting but the Mark makes more sense, though a future Krone/Krona would be an aim.

    I think he means the Irish Punt's value will plummet. Thus there is no moral hazard for Germany other than someone claiming to base their (soon to be worthless) currency off theirs.

    A meeting of Economists and bankers working for the National Bank of China have finally come to a decision on which currency to be base the New Chinese Currency the Yuan on. The British pound was rejected due to the recent war creating some dislike towards the British in China. The American Currencies are both very weak and are consider dangerous to base a currency on them (Also I dislike America) and the Franc was rejected because it is French. The Currency will be initially based on the German mark clearly the Rising currency of Europe. Although the Demands of war may force additional printing of money forcing the New Chinese Yuan value down but it is currently based on the Strong German Mark.

    Bavaria - Use the franc and wave bye to any chance of survival.

    Germany - You will not be effected by the Irish mucking up their currency.

    OOC: I still don't get what are the effective differences of choosing between dollars, marks, pounds or francs. Are we bound to be affected by that currency owner monetary policy?
    Else it only shows a rough political alignment, doesn't it?

    The government of the USA offers the use of the Greenback to the all of the Americas, in order to forge closer economic ties between our nations.

    The Brazilian government thanks the US offer, but our first options are either the British pound or the German mark.
    However we will consider the greenback as well, the decision of which currency to base ours on will come in the near future.


    OOC : I really think i will pick the German mark, so much stable...

    I would prefer to know the exact effects of picking X currency tough...would it ease trade? Would it make it easier for me to invest in my country? Would it attract more investors?
    Knowing that before choosing a currency would be nice.

    OOC: Yes, I'd like to know more about the consequences before choosing as it's a long term effort
    And does it provide any benefit to the chosen nation?
    Also any mini-update on our conflict coming?

    Basically, the value is based on two things. The Value of the Base Currency and the Amount of Money you print.

    If the German Economy EXPLODED and the Mark doubles to 2.00, all of the currencies tied to the Mark will double. If the USA prints and prints and prints, and the Dollar reduces to 0.25, then all the currencies tied to the dollar will halve.
