Dragonsong Dominion: Politics

Internal policy currently leans toward providing the means to sustain the population with farming and fishing as the main focus. This has been successful because hearty grains have been produced that survive lack of direct sunlight and the oceans are still very much alive. The reduced population is easier to provide shelter and work for and the country's traditional military-like discipline favors this because food is not as scarce as it once was. Nevertheless, the people prefer to eat enough to survive and stock up on grains for a better future.
Foreign policy, once guided by commercial and military needs, now favors the population's needs as more and more international accords are prepared to allow access to raw materials and aid. Commercially, ore and raw materials are now the chief imports, processed raw materials, fish, and even limited amounts of grains lead the Dominion's exports.
