Trying to figure out what the hell we are sending to Switzerland in such great numbers. Gold and silver maybe? Mining and tourism are our biggest industries. But then why Switzerland?

↑ Made me laugh. I hope Switzerland's foundations are strong enough to resist the weight… :mrgreen:

But now, what's with France and, especially, Belgium on the East?

Maps, meh. In one of my old jobs, we'd have a construction trailer in a small town in Ukraine but we'd highlight the whole USSR.

Belgium getting a whole bunch of something from Delaware.

I don't know, but I suspect the DuPont family is involved somehow.

Child trafficking perhaps?
