Why Colonize Here?

Story of Ronald

This is a great place to colonize, me and my family love it here. There are tons of resources to live off of here and the military is fantastic! You never have to worry about being in danger here because the military is very reliable and if necessary you will join. We have a great king and a small community. This is definitely the place to colonize!
