First Lord Nicholas also set up the central Stock Exchange (CSE), which allowed ten regional exchange businesses to trade shares in foreign companies. In addition to aiding the economy, the exchanges were supposed to promote peace between the realms, as having economic interests in neighboring states made war less attractive.
The Central Stock Exchange was located in the Terran city of London. The other stock exchanges and the Star League mints were set up on border worlds between the member states. They were grouped into commerce cities built by the Star League for the use of economists, brokers, and company executives. The cities' protection came from the SLDF, which usually had a major military base nearby.
Moniesville on Preston, was one such city; it's mint produced currency for both the Lyran Commonwealth and Free Worlds League. With collapse of the Star League, the border world locations of the commerce cities proved to be their downfall, as they soon became targets. Moniesville was destroyed early in the First Succession War.
