The Caribbean Crisis
In 1962, unclear weaponry known as samples was being surreptitiously smuggled by the Negativland alliance, much to the concern of the U2s' fathercompany. This, in addition to the fact that the entire episode was essentially deception of the U2s' supporters, who would ordinarily have been given some kind of warning ("achtung" in military jargon) beforehand, caused the situation to escalate wildly. This was obviously a very dangerous crisis, as we can all understand, whether we have kids or pets or neither.
The U2s' fathercompany responded by setting up a blockade of Negativland's undertakings. As Negativland's government and its allies soon realized, it could not financially support a full-scale war, and the weapons were retired. Later on, international treaties were put in place to prevent similar crises from occurring, and unclear weapons have in fact been made mostly a thing of the past.
The economy of Negativland is not among the most prosperous. The primary source of income is piracy, which is rampant in the area, and since there, broadly speaking, is no business in the country, a market as such does not exist. Attempts at export were futile, as the Caribbean Crisis resulted in a blockade of any trade.
Negativland has also been denied membership of WTO on numerous occasions due to their failure to implement basic intellectual property law. Thus, any significant prosperity in the area still remains to be seen.
