Recent History

Milesia went through one of its most turbulent peacetime changes ever in the very recent past, changing from a Minarchy (Milesia) to a corporate based technocracy (The Milesian Technate) with the Proclamation of the Technate. This change was traumatic to say the least, though entirely peaceful and without bloodshed. The Technate has yet to recover her full economic strength but is in the unusual position of having a complex and very modern infrastructure as well as a highly skilled workforce and yet has quite low levels of production and income, at least in the short term, as there are still kinks to be worked out with economic co-ordination.

The Technate was helped hugely in its transition to a non-capitalist state by SeOCC and their ability to get an exemption from the IFTA to trade with The Technate and supply it with many goods which would otherwise have been unavailable to The Technate due to political reprisals from the nationalisation of the Milesian economy.
