TradeMain Foundation Starts Today
Unification talks between Scorpionis and the Corona Foundation have proceeded
much faster than expected. In a mere two days, representatives of
both governments have worked out the myriad details to allow the two neighbors
to combine into one central government.
The TradeMain Foundation, as it is to be called, officially comes into
being today. Scorpionis and the Corona Foundation, and the long-standing
tensions between the two, are things of the past.
While full details of the new constitution are yet to be released, most
important issues have been announced:
While most changes take effect immediately, the changeover to the TMU is
to be phased in over time. By 001-1119, all business must be conducted
in TMUs, and by 001-1120 the former currency chits will no longer be legal
tender. Until then, both currencies are taken at a 1:1 face value
equivalence, and equivalence with the TMU.
the capital of the TradeMain Foundation is to be on Corona;
the official language of the TMF is to be Galanglic;
the official currency is to be a new TradeMain Unit, or TMU.
Military command will be unified eventually, but at present the Scorpionis
and Corona forces will remain under their current commanders, who now report
to the TMF government. It is clearly important that the defense of
the sector not be compromised by the political upheaval.
