Merchants harassed

"Disputes over the treatment of local merchants were not uncommon. All governments faced minor reports of unfair treatment and harassment of their merchants. At the higher levels there were complaints about banditry and privateering occurring within or at the direction of a certain state. These issues could be resolved but saber rattling was always an option."
