Your kingdom will spend most of its wealth on the following:

  1. War preparations.
  2. Raising new troops beyond those levied by your provinces.
  3. Maintaining armies in the field.

Outside the categories of income and expense lie the subject of diplomatic payments. These are: tributes, ransoms, and gifts. All diplomatic payments are direct transfers of wealth from one kingdom to another. Some kingdoms will, as a matter of survival expend a substantial amount of their wealth through diplomatic payments to other kingdoms. Others may gain much of their wealth from these payments. Each kingdom will have to evaluate what impact diplomatic payments (paying and receiving) will have on its economic situation.
