Dedhampton Demands Colonies to Increase Exports

Governor Jacob Ralf Reisen, cousin to His Majesty Felix Drake Reisen, announced a new imperial decree that requires all colonies to triple their exports to the homeland.

After a series of wars with neighboring countries, the imperial coffers are diminished. It is hoped that the swell of exports will replenish the treasury.

Ezekiel Hosmer, president of New Dedhampton’s Ruby Guild, remarked “we’re already sending as many of the rubies we mine as we can. It is not possible to get blood from a stone. What more can we do?”

The imperial decree was posted at the city halls in neighboring Nateekingham and Glouland, on the frontier, by their respective governors. The citizens in those colonies also expressed their displeasure.

Samuel Glou, a leading Glouland merchant, said “Out here on the frontier we’re left on our own to defend against the savages. Last week an attack on one of the silver mines caused operations to stop for a week.”

This serves as an opportunity to share three additions to the House of Reisen. Governor Jacob Ralf Reisen, Governor Jan Alexander Reisen, and Governor Leon Marko Reisen. They walk in the gubernatorial shoes for Dedhampton’s colonies. There’s nothing like nepotism at its best when royalty places family members in positions of leadership simply because they’re family.
