As you can see, Ireland is marching across the eUS into the midwest and cuddling with our breadbasket.
I've received many alarmed PMs asking about the current battlefield shenanigans, worried that we are losing a war. I simply would like to inform you that this is not the case.
Both of the countries involved in these attacks are allied nations. We are intentionally moving them into our nation so that they can use extra high resource regions to boost their economy (in exchange for monetary compensation). All regions besides a select few will be returned as soon as possible by Poland.
I encourage all business owners in occupied regions to take advantage of the reduced price export licenses
Today is a glorious day. Between the glorious shenanigans of last night, and the Irish/Polish swaps stateside going unhindered, I couldn't be happier with in game eRepublik right now.
Since the contract is fairly lengthy, I will stop boring you with the introductory goods, and get straight into it. I will not bore you by showing both contracts, and simply say that Ireland will be renting North Dakota for 200g/month.
Thanks to all who made this possible.
Note: Last night Ireland mis-swapped into Oklahoma. It will be returned to the eUS soon
Dare I say...Poland is inside of us :3

Should this contract be violated by any of the sides, the depositary will ensure that the breaching side meets appropriate political and/or financial consequences.
