    @Tyrion, if you use your only Public Spending to expand the colony, I will assume that that IC is not being used on domestic projects or policies.

    Regarding the slave trade: Dispite heated debate among the research team, I have determined that in this timeline rather than declining, the slave trade has been larger. Without American cooperation and support, the overseas trade has not been stopped yet by the British as it was in real life. Therefore, more slaves have been brought in than historically. Carolina for example has more slaves than free whites, but they are the most significant case. Here is a handy list of slave relations:

    Slave Majority: Carolina
    Depends on Slaves for Economy: Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky
    Has slaves for minor economic roles: Tennessee, Franklin, Ohio, Georgia, Mexican Empire, British Empire
    Slavery is legal but minor: Pennsylvania, Delaware

    @EQandcivfanatic: I had questions at the lower end of my orders. Should we put questions in separate PMs?

    @flyinchicken. I looked at your questions and here is your answers. You do have good overall relations with the three powers mentioned. As for free trade, mercantilism is just starting to finally end. Over the next century is when free trade actually becomes a reality to some degree.

    The tsar is strong and his rule absolute, but we humbly ask that you give our merchants some leeway in doing business, at least when it comes to doing business with the Greeks.

    OK, now I'm mad.

    I reserved Spain a good seven hours before a_propagandist in the welcome thread.

    Why does he have Spain? Either you give me my rightful nation or I leave.

    Checking in as the Republic of New Africa [/joke]

    Though, I'd like to point out that Georgia, the expanded one here, is the cotton belt.

    Yes, it may be the cotton belt, but they've only started their hand in bringing people in. Cotton gin hasnt been invented yet and it has yet to achieve the vital importance it had in the Deep South so far.

    D'Art, you are correct.

    Propagandist, let me figure out what that makes you.
