Information about the East Gamba Trading Company


East Gamba Trading Company is a community that originated in the 1978 SambaGambina Civil War.

In 2016, the long-term director of EGTC, General Janne Gambels, was in his small plane carrying diamonds when the plane crashed into Parola area. Janne Gambels survived the accident and eventually took part in the battles between Uusimaa and Pirkanmaa. Gambels was elected president among the civilian population of Parola by democratic elections. However, at the beginning of his presidency, Gambels had found that he did not enjoy the popularity of all the people. As a precaution, Gambels was represented at official events by his twin, who was suddenly murdered in the Battle of Tiirikylä. Gambels quickly withdrew from the public, until finally in 2021 he ended up on the Padasjoki after the battles between Uusimaa and Pirkanmaa seized. During his years of silence, Gambels had contacted old SambaGambina Civil War veterans and now has gathered his troops.
