    "Not the Home Counties, or even Liverpool, but jolly British, by Jove!"

    A British trading district improves the port defences in several ways, and improves the value of exports to the outside world.

    While the Victorian era is seen only as a period of rampant colonialism on the part of Britain, a considerable amount of wealth was generated as a result of trade concessions. Substantial profits could be generated by "managing", or controlling, a nation's trade, rather than running the place. This had been the original purpose of the East India Company: actually ruling India was an almost accidental consequence of the Mutiny in 1857, and the imposition of British government control rather than private enterprise in Company affairs. It was yet to dawn on the British Civil Service that, while ruling large swathes of the world was all very nice, an empire was extremely expensive in terms of money and manpower.

    Other Information

    Although the cost of constructing a British Trading District is very expensive, the investment can be considered worthwhile as it will enable recruitment of the strongest naval unit of the entire game: The Warrior-Class Ironclad. However, very careful consideration should be taken on the placement of this building as a clan can only have one Trading District.
