History[edit | edit source]
When the Confederation was founded in November 2010, the Meek government did not initially establish a government department to manage the North American economic policy, citing the lack of a viable economy until government stability to be reached. Unfortunately, the Meek government collapsed in April 2011 and the Confederation government found itself incapable of organizing a budget or economic policy.
With the establishment of the Marx government following the Interregnum, it was agreed that the establishment of a Ministry to manage the Confederation's eventual budget was of paramount importance, in light of the Prime Minister's economic goals. In November 2015, it was decided that the Ministry of Finance should be founded, with Empress Alyssa appointed to the position.
