After the crushing Great War, many holes were starting to pop up in the economies of Great Britain, France, and Germany because of the payments to war in Germany and the help sent from France and Great Britain. The Treaty of Three overlooked this problem and united the three countries' economies into one large one, although some individualities still remained. It also inaugurated a mutual protection pact and a strong political alliance between the three. This everlasting treaty has remained for a long and helped all three countries with finances. The Chancellor of Germany has even admitted he enjoys the political alliance between his allies.
