T/N: I want to give a big thank you to my Cookie Donor Shannon! I still havent decided what sweets to get, but I think Im leaning towards chocolate muffins for a start ❤

For a moment Im stunned by His Majestys unexpected question, and I just stand there confused.

Um, what did he just say He asked about what The position that our country occupies in the world

Why is he asking me that Theres no way that I would be able to answer that sort of question, right

Im just an 8-year-old girl, you know ….At least on the outside….

Maybe this is a challenge sent down from God to test whether Im really fit to call myself a villainess

That must be it.

Otherwise theres no way that a king would be sitting in front of me and asking that sort of question.

I glance over at the map that lays open on the desk.

This country, the Duelkis Kingdoms position in the world….

Thats right, were a big country, but that doesnt necessarily make us a good country.

Thats what Ive come to understand from the books that Ive been reading recently.

It seems all that reading that Ive been doing was worthwhile after all.

Will it be enough if I just say something like that It certainly sounds like something a villainess would say.

Because that would mean Id be telling a king to his face that his country isnt that good! Thats the very picture of a villainess!

I wonder what I should do if he banishes me from the kingdom for saying that….

Well, if that happens, Im sure Ill figure something out.

I mean, I was reborn into this world in order to be a villainess after all, I couldnt possibly back down here.

“This country may be large, but with all due respect, I cant call it a good country,” I say, keeping steady eye contact with the king and standing as straight and tall as I can.

At my words, His Majestys face darkens.

Which is to be expected, considering he just had his own country badmouthed by an 8-year-old child.

……But Duke on the other hand….

why does he look like hes enjoying this Arent you the kings son

I probably have no right to judge, since I was the one who said that and all, but shouldnt you be feeling angered by my words

“Whats not good about it”

I figured that question would be coming.

But wow.

Im surrounded by a bunch of geniuses all older than me and being interrogated by the king….

what sort of torture is this But enduring ordeals like this is also an important aspect of being a villainess.

So without stopping to feel sorry for myself, I start formulating my answer.

At an insane speed, I try to gather all my knowledge on the current state of affairs and combine them with my own thoughts on the country to come up with a reply.

“At a glance, our country seems to have a booming economy, but upon closer inspection it becomes clear that there is a large economic inequality between the upper class and the common people.

Its to the point where the impoverished areas and villages are so miserable that no one can bear to look at them.

And the people living under those conditions run the risk of revolting, which means we must revise the fiscal policy that is currently in place.”

The kings eyes go wide.

Hmm, he murmurs while stroking his mustache.

“Then what do you propose to fix this problem”

Youre going to continue questioning me about this!

What the heck are you trying to make an 8-year-old girl answer

Theres no way that a normal little girl would be able to answer something like this!

…..Could they possibly be testing me right now Trying to see what villainous qualities I possess

Well I suppose that a true villainess should have a heartless solution on hand for this sort of problem, so how about this…

“What about if we were to support Calverras desire to secede from the Ravaal Kingdom”

Around the room, everyones expressions stiffen.

Jeez.

Ive already seen that expression too many times to count.

Im getting tired of it, so can you guys try something new the next time that youre surprised

“Even if we support Calverras request for independence that doesnt mean that we can put them under our own jurisdiction,” Gayle-Sama tells me, his eyes as round as saucers.

Thank you, Gayle-Sama.

I was waiting for someone to say that.

“Thats true.

We wont be able to take them under our command.”

“Then, what are you suggesting” His Majesty asks me, his voice a little louder than necessary.

Okay! Shall I show off what a villainesss specialty is now

I straighten my posture once again and then turn to look the king straight in the eye.

“We must demand gratitude from them.”

T/N: Alicia sure knows how to hold them in suspense XD I cant wait to see this portrayed in the manga! Imagine the king and all those older boys surrounding a tiny little girl and listening to her talk about politics and fiscal policy lol.

Chapter Notes: in this chapter instead of saying “country” this “country” that I decided that for the sake of flow, I would use the word kingdom sometimes as well.

Since Duelkis has a king, I feel pretty safe in calling it a kingdom, but I have zero information on Ravaal, so theres a possibility that it isnt one… It could be an empire, a republic, etc.

but Ill try to come back and fix this chapter if it turns out to be a different type of country.

As for Calverra, I would assume that its not a kingdom (or at least not yet) since its under Ravaals control.

If Ravaal is an empire though, even that assumption could be false….
