ECONOMY


HOW IS THE PORTOCAPITALIAN ECONOMY?

Porto Capital has a free market economy, although there is a heavy governmental control over it, to avoid any major problems due to external crisis. Our economy is based both on agriculture and industry, the major companies being owned by the government, although the services sector has been widely increased in the past few months.

CURRENCY

The Portocapitalian currency is the Sila (), with it's value fixed to the Cruisanan Crown as 1 = ChC$ 1,33. Pictures of the Silas bills are below. Both sides of the bills are the same.

AGRICULTURE

Our agriculture is based mostly on the many government-sponsored kibutzim-like farms, owned by a certain number of families, with all the community helping on the farming jobs. Our main agricultural products are Rice, Wheat, Coffee, Bean, Soy, Corn. Cattle is also an important activity, mostly on the Oran and Bay Plains.

INDUSTRY

Our industry is not much developed, but it is more than enough for our current needs. It is based largely on the oil, chemical, mining and steel companies.

SERVICES

In the past few months, the service sector has been largely developed, with the creation of uncountable companies, offering every single kind of service, from the media sector to shipping lines.
