Economy of Zolo:

Overview: Zolo’s economy is highly dependent on the exportation of fruit, coffee, sugar, and other agricultural products like beef and spices, all of which are exported in large volumes for low prices. Its main imported products are weapons, computers, medicine, automobiles, and luxury manufactured goods (which are almost all imported to satisfy the needs of wealthy settlers). Most of the working population is employed in agriculture, with more than a third living and working on small sustenance farms. Besides agriculture, tourism is the most important industry to the nation’s economy: people come from across the world to see the country’s beaches, rainforests, mountains, and ruins. There are very few labor laws, and there is no minimum wage. The economy has been growing both quickly and stably over the last 50 years since the end of the war of 1968, mostly at the expense of the natural environment, the poor, and the indigenous population. There is a stark divide between the modernized, commercial, urban areas, and the mostly poor and underdeveloped rural countryside.
