EconomyEdit

An Nuá Fíor Croise is a heavily industrialized nation, however, argriculture is still a large part of the economy, 95% of produce and meat that is consumed in An Nuá Fíor Croise is harvested locally. The Long Cross coin has seen a recent dip in value, but that is to be expected after the recent government change over. There is a marked lack in foreign investment, as the Crossaí believe they can handle their own economy, and its downfalls without foreign help. The country uses turf to produce energy in place of petrol or natural gas, that is except for vehicles. Poverty is an increasing problem as the unemployment rate grows. Many of those unemployed are of mixed backgrounds, across religious lines.
