After the events of the Kardonyszlavic Civil War led to a victory for democracy. Led by Joseph Lazarev and the Kardonyszlavic Democratic Party, the government has made radical changes to the economy and political system of the war-torn nation. The most controversial of these changes are replacing the command economy with a new economic system that leans much more towards free markets. Gone are the days of citizens receiving no pay from work and being fed low quality government-issue rations, now citizens are encouraged to work hard to make money and to buy food from vendors (a relatively new form of business that is now present in every Kardonyszlavic city). The times of government surveillance on its people are no more. Freedom has finally emerged in Kardonyszlav.
