Special transport corridor in the Oggensejen estuary, southeastern Medwedia

Posted by MisterBean on 15 March 2020 in English (English)

The Medwedian Democratic Federation is known for controlling its borders tightly. When it comes to the Oggen river, which forms the boundary between Medwedia and UL160 but deviates north from the border near Sejersted, the government made an exception in 2005 and created the Oggensejen Special Transport Corridor, which begins at the maritime boundary in the Bay of Predrussen and ends where the border joins the river.

The corridor, which is usable exclusively by freight transport, does not require a valid visa to be traversed. Nevertheless, the Federal Ministry of Border Control, Customs and Excise requires for a heavy toll to be paid per crew member and ton of cargo and for a list of all persons and goods present on the ship to be submitted at least one week prior to the usage of the corridor. Border patrol, military and police boats enforce the corridor and demand additional bribes.

Ships which deviate from the delimitation of the corridor are sunk immediately and without warning. The corridor is enforced by means of radar and signal buoys. Still, the Special Transport Corridor is used by 40 ships per day, on average.

HMM - why should any seagoing ship use this border strip? There is no port at the end as target. So I think - what do this 40 ships a day there? Sightseeing?

I am inferring that this city may be a port?

Yes, Sejersted is a major Medwedian port along with Nyhus further east.

Ships which traverse the corridor are not allowed to leave it and thus don't dock at Sejersted. Their targets are UL160 and Uleroaland.

You will tell me seagoing ships go this long and winding river up to Uleroland?

It is as unrealistic, artificial and absurd as the attempt of Neusüdengern a few months ago to become a transit paradise for hostile transport.

It is a waste of time to make any sense of it.

Way easier to dock at a port in UL160 and have freight hauled overland to Ulerolånd, and much less risk of getting blown out of the water.
