This could have devastating consequences for the economy of your nation and your position as Supreme Leader. The citizens are pushing for trade barriers in order to protect their jobs and their financial futures! The international community objects that placing tariffs, quotas, or any kind of import/export restrictions on "Cantgetitanywherebuthere-ium" is unacceptable protectionism. What do you do and why?
