Heh the Switzerland comment is not that accurate, since Kovir is a very powerful nation. Esterad already rules the world through trade. The comparison would be better with medieval Venice. Do not forget that he practically allowed the Northern Kingdoms to defeat Nilfgaard, by lending them half a million novigrad crowns. And as he says, half a million, and another half, makes a whole million.You really want Switzerland to conquer the world?... Well, you will wait a while then.
