As a Guarded Nation, The Atlantean Free cities enjoy great freedom to in terms of trade and diplomatic relations with other nations of the world, due to the Nation being spread all over the world, this has given the Nation the opportunity to stablish tied with almost every nation of the world. The confederacy statues also ensure that each city will have policies that will benefit them the most. However, as Guarded Nation this means that migration is highly restricted in the cities and while in the last centuries the Cities had a big integration with many cultures around the world, now those ties that were formed in the past are being lost one by one due to the restrictions on migration, this has also caused the Nation to stagnate in grow in the last couple decades, it is estimated that the economy would need an influx of migration to maintain a steady grow but due to the restrictions on migration this has not been possible and as result, this has caused some tension between The Aurora Council and The League of Heroes.
