We are starting to recover economically from the annexation of the former Mongol lands, and we might soon have the resources for new endeavours. Poking around in the cartography office got me thinking about the future - OK, so everyone is a back-seat president at heart . I came up with 3 alternatives, although there is a 4th. (There is no reason that they couldn't be combined.) 1. Fill in the gaps. There are a couple of prospective sites just to the west and south west of our capital, at a glance. This shouldn't cause to many maintenance problems. 2. Head east, young man. Settle the fertile lands east of Toot Uncommon, before the Germans do. This will certainly be more expensive than filling in the gaps. How long since we've scouted out there to see if there's any German activity? 3. Maritime exploration. This may well be the cheapest option, but many think there is nothing out there, and would prefer to stay on land. But who knows what riches may lie beyond the horizon? 4. Military expansion. Enough said. There may be other options.. I was just interested in what the other citizens thought.
