Economy of Nhoor


Overview
The economy of Nhoor is broadly diversified. Its most important branches are the fishing industry, tourism, iron ore and uranium mining, natural gas extraction, as well as shipbuilding, and there is a heavy emphasis on foreign trade. Nhoor's engineering sector accounts for 39% of output and exports, but a modest banking sector and pharmaceutical industries are also prominent features of Nhoor's economy.

Trade unions, employer's associations and collective agreements cover a large share of Nhoor employees; there are a few state mechanisms in place to extend collective agreements to some entire industries, most notably the fishing and mining industries. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens, although the gap has been slowly increasing in recent years.

In 2018, Nhoor had an estimated GDP of 322.9 billion, with a GDP per capita of 13,520. With an average tax rate this means that the government had a budget of approximately 95.1 billion.

Currency
The currency of Nhoor is the qhontirrāc, which according to the most commonly accepted etymological explanation means 'curvy tail'. In combination with amounts it is usually abreviated as 'qh' or to a ligature of q+h.

Like the counting system of the Nhoor language, the qhontirrāc system is duodecimal. 1 qh is known as a rea̦je ('reyadze' or 'silver qhontirrāc'), which is subdivided into 12 rhuma (12 rh.), which in turn is subdivided in 12 jaza (12 j.). Prices are usually indicated as qh'rh'j, where the jaza number is written slightly smaller and higher than the preceeding numbers.

Coins exist in 1 jaza, 2 jaza or merjaza, 6 jaza or ōlsījaza, 1 rhuma, 3 rhuma or lerna, and 1 rea̦je. A 'golden qhontirrāc' known as pamhwre worth 3 rea̦je was abolished in 1962.

Banknotes appear in values of 4, 12, 36, 72, and 144 qh (noted as 4, 10, 30, 60, and 100).

Energy
Almost all households in Nhoor are connected to a natural gas distribution network for heating and cooking purposes. Electricity in Nhoor is mostly generated from hydropower and nuclear power, but the latter is controversial and in the last 20 years there have been several discussions in parliament to reduce or even completely ban the use of nuclear power. In the last five years there has been an increasing amount of investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency. Several windmill parks can be found throughout the country.

Transport
There are eleven numbered motorways in Nhoor (designated with 'C' for curswch or 'national'), which are mostly concentrated in the southern part of the country. Maximum speed is 108 km/h on most motorways but 120 km/h in Chur; it is reduced to 96 km/h when it rains. Due to Nhoor's duodecimal counting system, these (and other) speed numbers are indicated as 90 resp Ѧ0 and (in case of rain) 80, which can be confusing for foreigners. The motorways are state owned; apart from some sections around the capital, there are no toll roads.

Rail transport
Nhoor has a relatively dense railway system. The first railway connection, between Sārruc and Tator, was completed in 1833. In 1994 the first High Speed Connection opened between Sārruc and Cinharda and currently there are extensions from Sārruc to Chur as well as from both Sārruc and Cinharda to the north. There are well developed plans to extend the line Sārruc-Chur internationally through the countries on Raedlon with Fortaleza (the capital of Dragao do Mar) as a provisional final destination.

Other transport
The capital of Sārruc has two metro lines and there has been discussion about the contruction of further lines. There are several (car) ferry services to the islands surrounding the mainland. The International Airport of Sārruc is the most important entrance and exit to and from Nhoor by air. Regional airfields can be found throughout the country.
