As you grow in Utopia, you will find that your Kingdom is like family. You
share a special bond with them that makes their success just as important to
you as your own might be. Provinces are welcome and encouraged to assist
either other in times of need. Provinces can also use the Aid System to
create their own barter commerce - trading food for runes or gold, and so on.
However, there are some taxes associated with Trade. Unfortunately, this is simply a reality of the Utopian World -- the Lords use these taxes to supply some of the services they offer and enforce the regulations they set.
Your province maintains a Trade Balance that records the history of aid you have sent and received. Each time you send an Aid Shipment to a fellow province in your Kingdom, you will be given a Trade Surplus as described below, and the recipient will receive a Trade Deficit. Each day, a small portion of your trade balance will naturally be forgiven.
The Trade Balance
Each day, a small portion of your trade balance will naturally be forgiven so that aid will be forgotten over time.
