The family looked at George disappointedly.
“Nii-sama, it’s hard to migrate in this world, you know?
“Ah, so it’s like that…”
Humans in this world could only survive by living on islands surrounded by the sea, or inside barriers with no monsters.
Every country had no more land or food supplies to spare for it to take in immigrants from other countries.
If the populace increased by too much, the country would perish.
Even in the Kingdom, the church was responsible for keeping the population in check by having an approval system for marriages.
As a result, non-marital children faced severe discrimination, and no one would say anything even if the slum children didn’t receive any support from the church.
Due to such circumstances, a cross-national agreement prohibiting mass migration was made to protect each nation and its people.
“It’s not impossible to get permanent residency in exchange for a lot of money, valuable technology, and magic stones, but it will probably only be possible for a hundred people at most.
Besides, Imperial Japan has language barrier problems, and I don’t think there’s any place who will lend a hand to a country which has been closed off to the outside world for so many years.”
“Well, our kingdom definitely won’t either.
We could help if it was just a food shortage, but if it’s a plant hazard… What’s more, the propagation of Over…”
Leonard also began to think this problem through after hearing what Melsa said.
Although population number was also one of the factors, most countries couldn’t afford to help resolve the hazards in other countries because they already had their hands full dealing with monsters that appeared on the borderlands.
If, by any chance, Over’s seeds from Imperial Japan slipped inside the Kingdom and germinated, the Kingdom would be the next to perish after Imperial Japan.
They couldn’t just leap out to help Imperial Japan, thinking it was merely ‘someone else’s problem’.
“…But we have to save them!”
When the family fell into silence, only Emma alone spoke up.
They couldn’t get involved in Imperial Japan’s problems in the name of the Kingdom.
Imperial Japan, too, had given up.
There was no way out of it whatsoever.
Emma understood that.
Even so, she still decided to stand up.
“We won’t be able to eat rice otherwise, right?!”
Author’s words: Hey, appetite wins in the end after all.
