Chapter 24 is HERE.
…I might have gotten a little carried away when talking about taxes.
Also, since it was brought up, I didn’t really specify due to the fact that it didn’t fit into the narrative here, but the other taxes raised were much less drastic than the alcohol one. The only trade that is super-severely affected is the alcohol trade. For the others, they’ll feel the pinch, but won’t be in danger of shutting down, since the taxation amounts for those are all more reasonable, ranging from 5-15%.
