The Central Administration voted on various bills that would phase out the mercantilist feudal system in place of a Free Market System. The representatives stated their influences came from various philosophers and economists namely: Pierre Proudhoun(Mutualism), Dr. Murray Rothbard(Austrian Laissez-faire), Henry George(Geoism) and Frederic Bastiat(French Liberalism). The bill will use a land tax rather than the proposed income tax idea. The land tax will be based on the amount of land and will be set by the local states. The economy will be decentralized and left to both private businesses and local cooperatives to freely compete. However, the central government will maintain safety regulations and workers rights. Controversially, Worker Unions will not be federally funded but, will be treated as charity organizations. The largest union in Tibet, the International Workers of the World(IWW or Wobblies) have threatened walk outs. Local businesses have stated they will allow the unions to picket but police will be called to enforce order, leading many Wobblies to reconsider. Many peasants and businesses have applauded this move as it seeks to bridge various perspectives and giving power to the people.

We pray that this never happens and will be the first to sanction any nation who violates the peace of the human family."
