    The Atnaian economic system has deep capitalistic roots tracing back to the 1500s and the formation of the Bradley Shipping Company. In point of fact, the trade systems of the nation could be said to go back as far as 200 BCE and the development of Balnianism, with early documentation in the religion referring to "[traders] dealing in all manner of goods before the gates of the temple" and "the wealthy merchants giving to [the church]".

    In recent years, the economic system has shifted somewhat. While free market capitalism is still supported, there has been a public and policy shift towards a more state-guided economy in the sense that the government establishes economic goals and offers incentives for these goals to be met. The government has nationalised some services, but for the most part encourages competition between private enterprises in order to serve the goal of public welfare. Subsidies, trade tariffs and quotas, and other "protectionist" policies support this shift. The system, especially since the rise of the First Hegemony, has been referred to as Fascistic in nature. An inherent policy of the current Atnaian administration is protection of Atnaian industry by limiting its reliance on foreign trade imports. However, Hegemon Wessich has openly said that full autarky is impossible, and instead supports a basis of "semi-autarky": that is, generating as much as possible on the homefront, leveraging and even increasing foreign usage of Atnaian goods, and importing only what it is infeasible for Atnaia to produce domestically. This has led to a shift in a few industries production goals, namely an increase in construction and infrastructure development, and the recreation of a more sizable arms manufacturing industry.

    The Atnaian economy is built on the back of its three tentpoles: Machinery, Media and Technology. Atnaian manufacturing is highly mechanized and advanced, producing everything from industrial equipment to cell phones. Atnaia has a robust data-hosting, Information Technologies and software/hardware design sector. Atnaian media in the form of journalism, printing, television, movies, music and more is consumed across the Isles and beyond.

    Agriculturally, it is based on the growth of rice and wheat, with wheat being rotated for strawberries on a five year cycle. Stone fruit, especially peaches and nectarines, are grown in many parts of Atnaia, and kudzu is cultivated in the west.

    Atnaia is open to trade with almost anybody, aside from those who are openly hostile to Atnaia or it's business interests. However, it also has certain levels of protectionism evident in its taxes and tariffs. It will trade for anything that is not illegal in the nation, and is particularly focused on raw material imports to support its own industries when those raw materials cannot be produced in Atnaia itself. However, it has large government subsidies supporting its local production, ensuring that resources that are produced in Atnaia will always be easier and cheaper to use by Atnaian industry. In terms of exports, it is heavily focused on it's manufacturing and information sectors, but is willing to output anything it produces that is not being used by Atnaian industries. An example of an Atnaian resource that is produced but not exported is silver.

    While not an official stance of the government, some Atnaian economists rank the nation's trade on a basic scale of one to ten, representing the nation's openness to trade with various nations. One represents very little or extremely controlled trade, while ten represents completely open or free trade. The scale, which was originally formulated by Dr. Bernard Lux, is widely used in public discussions on trade policy and foreign relations.

    Trade in an OOC Context

    I utilize an "opt-out" system of trade. I assume some level of trade relations with everyone that I am not openly hostile with, or who is not openly hostile with me. If you want to make trade a big story element, I am willing to do so. If you want to make specific deals, same thing. If you want to opt-out of trade with Atnaia, simply tell me.

    Furthermore, I also assume that Atnaia is exporting a little of everything to it's trade partners, and in exchange that it is getting a little of everything. If you do not wish to receive or send specific resources or products, you can tell me to opt-out. I reserve the right to opt-out of any of your resources or products as well.
