Risto, well done! This is precisely the sort of thing I have wanted to get going in Vexillium. There's been very little of this happening. I'm also keen on mutual advertising: "you advertise the branch of your company on my site, and I'll do the same on yours" -type of thing. I've also wanted to see more international companies form, and Auroro Unuigxo's approach is exactly the right thing.
Afterall, it's not like there's really a currency in Vexillium, so the real trading must be in the form of bartering: you buy my company and I'll buy yours; you advertise on my site, I'll advertise on yours. I'm actually keen to establish an international trade database, in which everyone's trade with eachother is documented, so that deals like ours can be written in, and so trade sanctions can actually have an impact. Having said that, I would like to develop economic models for all the Vexillium nations, too, so that trade sanctions can have an appreciable effect. But that's once I figure out Utania's model, which I'm working on, slowly.
In Utania, as you'll no doubt be aware, there's a long-running election campaign going on. Have you voted? (Little advertising plug there... heh heh.) In it, the moderate-leftists (PPP and USP) would be against the sale, but the Conservatives, President Hope being one, are 100% in favour. Whoever wins the election will elect the new acting-President (Pres' elections are not until next year).
So, in Frankel Jurst's reply, he's just playing the politics. Don't worry, I am all in favour of this. Though, if the PPP-USP win, I have no idea how I am going to make the sale go ahead - I guess the Conservatives could go ahead with it before the election is finalised. Care to be dragged into an internal scandal? Could be interesting. :-)
The sale does raise a question in my mind, Auroro Unuigxo must be huge in EKZ to afford the ChC 1.3 billion price for Aij Utani, no? What did they make their money from?
Enough of my rambling. As I suggested earlier, I'd be keen to make this a reciprocal arrangement, and for our agreement to be a "watershed" deal, one that makes the future in Vexillium!
