His conduct is laughable.


After our disengagement, it feels like I’m able to really notice the Second Prince’s misdeeds at last… I did not notice at all when I fell in love with him.


“Lady Iris, you cannot deny that this situation would provoke the Second Prince’s wrath. Why are you trying to take the riskiest route?” (Sei)


“At the time of my excommunication, when the goods from the Armenian Territory went through the borders, the tariffs that were imposed were significantly higher than normal. I’m sure that the Second Prince had a hand in the reason why heavy tariffs were imposed on the Armelian Territory.” (Iris)


Although the uproar has subsided, the lost money for the companies has yet to be returned.  Even if I try to negotiate with them, it would be a waste of time because they would refuse to give that money back.


Because the Second Prince’s faction is hostile towards me, my position as the Proxy Lord would do little to move their hand.


“In other words, when selling our goods to other territories, Armelian companies take a huge loss due to taxes.” (Iris)


“Well, If it is possible to acquire only the management part of the three companies, I believe it will be okay. But the whole companies themselves? That’s a little bit too much. don’t you think? It would be better if we could borrow the name of the company and move our workers there. For example, if we separate the Transport Department in the Azura Conglomerate and merge it with one of the three businesses. Then, they would technically be independent, right?” (Sei)


“Indeed… That means that if you can use the name of that company that you’re buying, the tax won’t apply to the sub-company. If it goes well, things will gradually go back to the pre-excommunication incident and the other companies will benefit again. Well, I heard before that the company, Oodana, also hired escorts one by one and distributed it from cities to towns. You can cut costs by underwriting them one by one, so you should use the employees from other businesses as well. The point is that I want to develop the Azura Conglomerate as a business.” (Iris)


I put on a wry smile as I knew that my workload would increase substantially in the future.


Nevertheless, it is also a fact that we cannot ignore the corrupt nobles rounded up in the Second Prince’s Faction. It will be a pain negotiating with them.


Well, although it’s easy to expand the business, whether the Azura Conglomerate will profit from it is the question.


“… I will be taking the characteristics of each company into consideration to narrow down which companies that the Azura Conglomerate will purchase.” (Iris)


“Thank you.” (Sei)

    Should this be the other way around?

    Been some time… but whatever…

    If they started the tax war, and are dependent on your wheat to keep on, then make a tax for exporting to them. There are few ways to fight this… will be ugly, but hey, they started.

    • It’s already ugly.
      The cost of food in the taxing fiefs will already have risen. Probably higher then tariffs.
      These are operating expenses. The companies will have to raise prices to afford to sell the food. So the customers, if they have any, pay for it in long run.
      This isn’t something the second Prince cares about because he he just doing this for himself. His cronies are apparently the type who only care about themselves so won’t care if a few more peasants can’t afford to feed themselves.
