World Economy[edit]

Zugaa's wealth is founded upon the harvesting and export of Millions, a krill-like plankton which has renowned medical properties and exported for pharmaceutical manufacturing throughout the sector. The Millions trade is carefully regulated by ConGov. This regulation has allowed ConGov to assume many of the roles of Zugaan corporations Geshemirk and KuyperCorp, both of which built their wealth on the Millions trade. Rumors in Zugaan government circles around Imperial corporations trying to insert themselves into the Zugaan trade process are constant.

One of the largest scandals in recent Zugaa history revolved around a senior economic planner leaking details of trade planning to several outside corporations.

Many of the people involved in the processed food production industry live in archologies in the deep ocean, with some people whom have never seen the surface.
