I must concur with the Bavarians. Weaponry may be a better way to back up your currency. What is a precious metal but one people want? If you have more gold than iron on your planet, iron would become a precious metal. The GMC prefers to deal with things of more utilitarian value than aesthetic or perceived value. Additionally, what better way to get rid of pirates than to hire them as your employees?



Plus it makes a nation's economy dangerous in more ways than one.

An advantage of possessing seventeen inhabited planets includes being able to institute different policies on some of them as a test of the concept, for this reason we have begun issuing 'Wampum' disks on three of our worlds, which are equal to similar Dinari but backed by a certain value of stored weaponry and ammunition. So far we have seen a slightly higher crime rate and a much higher level of accidental deaths.

We also have been forced to arrest not less than fifty nine individuals who attempted to export the weapons purchased from our military surplus stockpiles to other worlds: thus exposing twenty three cells of the azure heaven sedition, and eleven pirate syndicates. So far we consider the experiment a smashing success on the whole, and will be expanding the program on the selected worlds in the near future. Incidentally, the IMBD has greenlighted the production of the Mosquito class Independent LAC as the ultimate reward for those who accumulate truly unreasonable amounts of Wampum...
