Lavaria is the third-largest economy in Berea and the seventh-largest economy in the world by nominal GDP ($1,2 trillion). In the decades following the Great War and before the Lavish civil war, the administration of the northern regions of Lavaria leaned towards communist ideologies, seen that the level of poverty in those areas grew exponentially during the 1910s and 1920s. By 1931, a year before the Civil War, the unemployment rate was up to 17,4%. During that period, most of the nation’s biggest companies from the north were made statal. Important companies like COPEXN (Compania de Petróleo e Extração Natural), Bank of Lavaria (Banco da Lavária), CANAMA (Compania Nacional de Aço e Metalúrgica), and FAUP (Fábrica Automotiva Popular), were state-owned companies until 1945 after the reunification and a series of economic reforms that followed. The rather socialist government in northern Lavaria was able to lower the regional unemployment rates by almost 6%, though the extreme protectionist policies on exports and imports kept the regional economy from thriving. When the country reunified and the parliament was remodeled, the concept of an open market economy was brought back in, and most of the previous state-owned companies were privatized. In 1966, Lavaria changed its currency from the Ouro to the Lírio (£). The currency change elevated the country's economy, leading to a GDP increase of 10,3% between the years of 1968 and 1973.
