The Farmas Kingdom, ruled by King Edomalis. The country was brought to ruin and renamed the Farmenas. It was passed down on to later generations as a country that was destroyed because of the Demon Lord’s Wrath.
Tax Revenue Edit
The Farmas Kingdom was a large country with total population of 30 million, the tax revenue that the national treasury received each year was about 5 million Gold coins.
Due to its location, the Farmas kingdom can be considered as the main trading partner of the Dwargon. Without the need to traverse hazardous terrain, it is advantageous for direct transactions. Therefore, a great deal of profit was earned by selling the imported goods after implementing high taxes. But, simply selling goods to foreign kingdoms is hardly enough to be satisfied about.
If the imported goods were to be solely sold within the country, withholding foreign trades, that would further increase profits, and such a decision was made after listening to the advice of the Minister of Economical Affairs. As expected, at first there was an increase in the number of adventurers into the country plus the sales and revenues also increased.
But in a month, sales started to show signs of recession, and an investigation of the cause was immediately ordered. The damages are not only limited to imported goods. Foreign merchants who came to buy goods and adventurers who came to stay disappeared altogether. Adventurers staying in the city affect the revenues of shops and inns, making this situation something that cannot be ignored. This wasn’t a problem one could afford to simply wait and see. This is something that can’t be neglected. After all, if this route is permitted, the geological advantage the Farmas kingdom possessed is lost.
For the Farmas Kingdom, which mainly relies on trade for income, this is a matter of life and death. Due to the neighboring Dwargon Kingdom being an excellent industrial kingdom, the local level of industry is low. There are no local specialties, and there aren’t any resources able to be processed. The local agriculture is at a level when the people wouldn’t starve, but the tax gained wouldn’t be enough to cover the national spending. Tourism and trade being it’s main pillars, it’s a country where tariffs are high. Until now, thanks to threat Veldora posed, the trade route through the Farmas Kingdom had made it prosper.
If the kingdom couldn’t secure the benefits of trading with Dwargon, the national power of the kingdom will fall.
There have been changes in the trade status quo surrounding the Farmas Kingdom. Originally, the profits and losses of trade will take up to a year or even longer before it’s certain, but the changes are much too abrupt. This was due to the trade routes created by Tempest.
Even with the collective effort of the country, the most number of troops that can be mobilized is on a scale of about 100,000 people. So out of the 100,000 soldiers, those with actual combat experiences via skirmishes number about 20,000. Mercenaries make up the majority of that number. The knight belonging to this country are 10,000 at most. This number includes all of the knights in the region. When it comes to those who will actually rally to the king’s orders are 5000 at most. In addition, one should also consider the female fighting force as well.
