Waterworks and food sources Edit
It is agrarian by nature largely dependent on agriculture, fishing, low level chalk mining and selling high end wine. Most of the economy is weighted towards agricultural production though there are some industrial aspects to the urban economy but it is nowhere near the capability of nations like Northern France, PRUK or the SER. As of October 2011, the nation’s unemployment rate is 4.5%. A growing food processing, brewing, bread, wine making and scrap metal recycling industry is beginning to develop. Up-market organic sugar beet and wine is sold to Sussex, Wessex, Northern France and the Somme Republic.
The agricultural produce of the state includes hen’s eggs, feathers, grapes, peaches, wine, dairy products, cattle and tobacco.
Its industrial output includes hose drawn transportation equipment, steam train parts, hand tools, fabricated metal products, salt, chemicals and chalk products. Industry only took off after the 1985 with the free trade agreement with the other English Channel states. It is mostly focused on the town of Breast.
Irish peat, Kimeridge oil shale and Walloon coalEdit
Thyroid and skin cancers are no longer major issues, and are markedly less than they were before 1986.
Posters a nailed up as and when necessary by the local authorities and a monthly newspaper has been available since 2005. The North French national newspaper has been in circulation since 2007. Radio Brittany has broadcasts from Breast on medium and long wave frequencies as of 2008.
The death penaltyEdit
Murderers, sex predators, rapists, child molesters, traitors and enemy spies are executed with the hangman’s rope. A moratorium on hanging has been in place since 1984.
