Scenario 2
Within green nation, there is a native tribe known as the Tongi who have been petitioning the national government and the United Nations to recognize them as an independent nation and give them their native lands to rule over. However, the green nation has refused because the land the Tongi wish to have has rich oil deposits below it.
The green nation sees this deposit as a way to be less financially reliant on other nations. Once they pump the oil, they can reduce oil imports or save it in reserves to sell to neighboring countries for a profit.
