When first summoned to the Elfrieden Kingdom, Kazuya Souma was to be handed over to the Gran Chaos Empire in lieu of the kingdom's inability to pay war support against the Demon King. However, after listening to Kazuya's ideas on the failing economy, the food shortages and how the Elfrieden standard of living could be improved, King Albert Elfrieden decided to abdicate the throne and hand the crown over to Kazuya.
As a result, Kazuya has been implementing these methods to rebuild the kingdom and continues to do so even after it became the Kingdom of Freidonia.
Audits and Sales Edit
- All records of budget spending were examined for fraud, embezzlement and waste. All nobles/officials guilty of such crimes were to make complete repayment, or be arrested and have their assets seized.
- Payment of the war tribute to the Grand Chaos Empire was achieved by selling off 30% of the Elfrieden Kingdom's treasure. Only items that were comparable to normal assets such as jewelry and accessories were sold off. Those with historical/cultural significance or had magical properties were kept.
- Dealing with famine and corruption were prioritized before strengthening the military, in order to bolster support among the populace, and prevent rebellion.
Food, Economy and Infrastructure Edit
- Cash crops such as cotton and other luxury items are to be replaced with food crops such as wheat, potatoes and soybeans.
- Since the agricultural reforms cannot happen overnight, the kingdom must accept a temporary trade deficit..
- Use Poncho Panacotta's knowledge of other foods in order to solve the food shortages
- Give the Mystic Wolf Tribe a 5 year monopoly on creating soy sauce and miso.
- Teach Aisha Udgard's people about the process of forest thinning.
