Ask the Field Marshal
Greetings, everyone. This is a thread for me to answer YOUR questions about Prusso-Egyptian culture, society, politics, economy, technology, and military, as long as it's not obviously classified. Go ahead, give me all you've got!

What are your major types of energy production? Ex. coal, hydroelectic, solar.

SOLAR SOLAR SOLAR SOLAR!!!!!
We produce the largest amount of solar power in the world, so much we have a surplus of it we sell to other nations. We achieve this mainly through large solar farms in the Sahara, the perfect place to do it.

We do also use some other power sources, like wind, geothermal and hydroelectric, but none of them even begin to compare to solar.

Our huge use of solar allows us to rid ourselves of dependence on fossil fuels, which means we can massively export them. We only use oil for aircraft fuel, and coal for steam trains (nostalgia).

This is mainly why I believe Prusso-Egypt has the best economy out there.

I don't mean to be rude, but your economy would only be a shadow to that of nations who do rely on fossil fuels. Although they are primitive in comparison to more adaptable fuel methods, they tend to boost the economy of a nation depending on what side of the deal you are on. i.e. Say you are the nation dealing the fossil fuels, then you could receive a large sum of money or a great deal of other means of payment. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the one paying the money would be able to open relations with the seller on the opposite side of the world, thus allowing it to side with other nations in the area as well. So you see, fossil fuels make or break and economy.

Right. Well, I think I'm on the right side of the 'deal.'

The MU also operates similar renewable energy by taking advantages of the numerous rivers of Italy and France for hydroelectricity. Spain already had numerous solar plants before the MU invaded it, and we've put those to good use as well. The extensive MU coastline makes for numerous locations for offshore wind power plants and plants harnessing the movement of the waves.

Once the MU finishes invading Morocco, we are installing a large solar plant there as well.

The economy thing, however, may not be so true. You don't seem to have any technology deals open with other countries to the best of my knowledge. Your excessively large military size you claim would suck away funds like a shop vacuum would dust in a 100 year old room.

Also, there isn't a whole lot of especially useful coastline in Prusso-Egypt, since most of your coast is along Libya and Algeria. Your most beneficial sea shipping posession is that of the Suez, but thats about it.

I think you should try and make some more money-making/saving decisions to really have a shot at the world's best economy. Perhaps a more realistic downsizing of your military or perhaps expanding international trade. Maybe purchasing a port on a different body of water than the Baltic or the Mediterranean via the MU Seaport Purchase Program.

The international selling definitely sounds like a good idea. I'll also look into some ports of yours. Thanks!
