I would secure a solid trade agreement with Britain, much like American had before WWI, so there would be a steady flow of import and exports that would profit both countries. As I’m building up my military forces an alliance between the American’s and Russians would be my next move. The Americans and Russians have a much larger
“boots on the ground” force than Britain, so as Britain’s navy force secures the seas andtrading routes so the American’s and Russian’s would guarantee if war breaks out that are substantial forces that would detour and aggressive countries that might make a play to attack me.To get Russia to sign into a treaty I would work out a plan to help Russia with their shipping and navel problem due to the lack of a warm water port. Russia gained power by moving overland instead of overseas because of its geographic constraints. (Chapter3,p.39). Convincing one of the most powerful countries in the European Nations to ally with a smaller country would be challenging but my country could be used as a restocking, resting and refueling area for troops if war ever broke out, thus assuring an advantage over its challengers.With the military and trade routes secured, treaties signed off by the larger more powerful countries of the time, my attention would turn to the welfare of my people. Observing the conditions in which the British treated its people, Workers lived in small, dark and unheated houses. (Chapter 3, pg 34), I would use their mistakes in handling the common workers of the country and try to lay out laws to ensure fair pay for the labors fulfilled. We would be known as a country for the people and that its people prosper as its country prospers. With the import and exports from Britain, The America’sand Russia, the workforce would be strong and thriving.References:
