The Sine Sea Vola Company is an organization that utilizes Government approved pirates, also known as privateers, while not associating them to England. WHO ARE WE? We steal from England's enemy (in this case, the Spanish), and pool all captured riches into one sum, which is divided 70% for England and the Swoody Bell Foundation, where the 70% is divided equally, and 30% to the Sine Sea Vola Company, (as well as paid for expenses to living such as food and housing, typically middle class level). When enough profits are made, operations will be set to work along the Pacific trade routes of the Spanish, where ships carrying equally as precious cargo are going to Singapore, to which, rounding the southern tip of Africa, make it to Spain. Now that our plans have been laid out, how do we know they will work? By doing what we've claimed, drawbacks like worsened relations with the Spanish can result in war with England, and even at that we might not be able to bring back enough profit... how can you trust us? Well the answer is simple; we look at one of England's most celebrated heroes, Sir Francis Drake, who is also one of Spain's most hated enemies (how bout that?) In Marcus Gheeraert's oil painting entitled "Sir Francis Drake", painted in 1591, Sir Francis Drake is shown posing in ornate clothes, with his motto "SIC PARVIS MAGNA" in the top left corner (translated from Latin, roughly meaning "great things from small beginnings").
Drake's clothes alone show how well he did for himself; no ordinary pirate wore such clothes, and didn't bother to associate him or herself with such luxuries.
In the bottom left corner, a globe is shown, with a typical "dotted outline" type of design, which was common on documentations of Drake's circumnavigation.
However, the most notibable portion of the painting is Drake's jewelry around his waist. This was a jeweled accessory given to Drake by the Queen herself, which sported the Queens portrait on the Jewel. Such a gift was an outstanding show of honor for the privateer, and was one of Drake's most prized possessions. "SIR FRANCIS DRAKE" In short, Drake is an example of almost exactly what the Sine Sea Vola company is able to offer the crown and the Swoody Bell foundation. This leads us to what exactly we NEED from England and the Swoody Bell Foundation. As stated, we will be using sloops as our flagships when pirating Spanish goods, and galleons as cargo ships (or additional backup if necessary). Sloops are ships that are smaller than Galleons, but also faster (typically ten knots), and carry crews of up to 75 men. Galleons (post Sir John Hawkin's designs), which are large and can support over 200 people, cost 7000 pounds per ship. These ships are used for war and cargo, as they are large, can house many items, or weapons, and typically go up to around eight knots. Projected outcomes based on Drake's profit (over two hundred thousand pounds), are estimated to be well over 160,000 pounds (all expenses already subtracted), once divided, being 56,000 pounds for the Swoody Bell Foundation and the Crown each, and 48,000 pounds for the Sine Sea Vola Company (as well as all promised essentials from the Crown and Swoody Bell Foundation combined), annually. Easily these profits parallel those made off of colonies, but in terms of power, as England gains profit, Spain loses it, hence even if relations with Spain worsen, Spain becomes more powerless to actually do anything about it. In fact, King Philip II (right), placed a bounty of around 40,000 pounds on Drake's head, and Drake was made a vice admiral to the English fleet when in war with Spain. In the end, all entities in collaboration with this contract will become the world's superpowers, with England being able to support the colonies (religious missionary work, riches, etc) and our organization more. Along with this, the more exploring that the privateers of the Sine Sea Vola company do, the more mapped geography, new resources and trade routes, and claimed land for England will be provided.
