Thanks! Yes, it is pretty much 100% government-run. Presumably none of the workforce at the state arsenals are slaves. Industrial factory work actually requires a degree of skill/education for even the base laborers - and there's no way they're going to be educating slaves in any serious numbers. Totally out of the question for the planter class to tolerate government investment in educating non-whites. The worker base will probably all be poor, but relatively well-educated whites (ie, think rural guys who learned to read in bible class).
