As a center for commerce in the region, it boasts saloons, fine living, export/import markets, manufacturing, and the Elkhorn Ridge RR Station.
The USA and the Plains Nation recently signed a treaty that annexed the town to the United States and to allow the US to have free access to the town through Plains Nation territory.
