From New Message from God Wiki
"This is a privilege: the ability to be self-sufficient, the ability to remain outside the sphere of commerce, trade and competition. It is a right that is difficult to achieve and difficult to maintain, particularly if your world’s district or area is recognized to have great assets. In the case of your world, it is far too late to achieve this autonomy though it is possible to secure it in the future."
