Over the past few days, private military contractors the Diamond Frogs have been hard at work on Operation: Mistle Toad, a concentrated effort to deliver personal gifts to the Santa Muerte system. A notable highlight of the campaign came when DF Commander Doot stopped by in an Imperial Cutter packed to the gills with 704 tonnes of personal gifts...twice!
Just a day before the planned close of the event, the combined efforts of the Diamond Frogs and other pilots resulted in a final tally of 250,000 tonnes of personal gifts. Moreover, the event organisers announced they have launched an initiative to give new members of the Pilots Federation a brand-new Faulcon DeLacey Viper Mk IV. This is in addition to a substantial cash reward for those who helped brighten up the season, to the tune of up to 100 million credits for the top 5% of contributors.

In this weekly digest, the latest GalNet data is compiled to show the economic state of a short list of minor factions and the star systems they inhabit.
Here are 10 of the 12,327 minor factions currently enjoying an economic boom:
LHS 1798 Gold Life Systems
Earls of Miritu
Iktomisi Advanced Group
Cartel of Cebalrai
Herfjongo Independent League
Allied HIP 113103 Dominion
Kutjalangai Allied and Co
Turd Wura Corp.
HR 755 Electronics Commodities
When in boom, the wealth of a system is increased for the duration and all trade missions have double the effect on influence. Boom can also positively increase a minor faction's influence. Boom can be entered by consistent trade profits and completed trade contracts. Booms tend to last until they naturally expire or until some other indicator takes precedence, such as famine.
Here are 10 of the 950 factions currently experiencing economic bust:
Bureau of LHS 6027 Liberty Party
Glusargiz Energy Exchange
CD-66 2585 Purple Cartel
Wolf 1458 Society
Aurgel Silver Hand Gang
Svanticani Purple Public Prtnrs
HIP 24968 Energy Corp.
CD-70 19 Public Incorporated
The wealth of a system diminishes while in bust and the minor faction's influence is also lessened. The effect of trade contracts and actions do not contribute to boom while a bust is active. A bust generally has to run its course before ending.
