Exports of Zolo

The economy of the Republic of Zolo is an exportation-based economy, as the vast majority of the GDP comes from the export of agricultural goods, minerals, lumber, and a few manufactured products; and the vast majority of the population has very little purchasing power. Fruits grown in the Republic of Zolo are eaten all across the Mundus, and beef, cheese, coffee, chocolate, spices, and sugar from Zolo can be found in supermarkets around the globe. The low prices of Zoloan exports are guaranteed by extremely low labor costs, extensive agricultural subsidies, and the relatively few environmental regulations in the country. Agricultural products are especially cheap because the government sells and rents-out land for extremely cheap to commercial farmers.
The country also exports significant amounts of cobalt, lithium, copper, uranium, and gold; all of which are mined in relatively large quantities in Zolo and exported to be used by more developed and industrialized countries, especially in their renewable energy and tech industries.
The country's massive rainforests are an abundant source of "exotic" and high-quality wood in bulk, which has contributed to a continual process of deforestation. But not to worry, investors! There's lots of rainforest to go around, and plenty of military support to ensure there's no disruption of production on behalf of environmentalists or the native peoples.
The government of the Republic of Zolo is business-friendly and takes seriously the needs of investors, be they Zoloan or international: governments or businesses which choose to partner with the government of Zolo or to do business in the country will find it to be an accommodating business partner and an environment conducive to high profits! (if sometimes at the expense of being ethically questionable)
