Our enemies put up a trade embargo against us, along with a naval blockade. They will not trade with us and are trying to cut us off from supply routes. This hurts us, but we are strong enough to see this through.
We managed to get enough support to open up a few safe trade routes. That should do for now. Nevertheless, we have to break the trade embargo and blockade as soon as possible.
