I am familiar with the game somewhat and my economy has been going up and down. But just in the past few days i have been losing and losing more and more money. I have checked my costs and the finance tab. My defense cost is through the roof and i have deactivated all military equipment and units and everything and for a while it was doing good. Then my costs are through the roof.
I would appreciate any help i could get.

First, don't forget that new players are given extra money each month called Beginner boosters or something. This money disappears over time. That is why your country was making money and isn't now. I bet your costs are through the roof due to you building things such as corporations (which cost to open) and infrastructure. A common and easy mistake to make is rushing to build up your indices to make level 2. I believe the best advice every new player needs is to be sure to build your population steadily up. Your country will never be profitable and have decent indices unless you gain enough population to enable the building of many more corporations. From my experiences it seems that a country can't pull much profit until you have at least 30 million population or more. Other folks may disagree though since every player has his/her own style. You may want to buy some gold coins though and keep building up those indices until you hit at least level 3. Use the gold coins to buy game cash and keep your country out of debt. Look at it like an investment, you will be spending some coins but will gain a couple hundred from leveling up. After you level up you can reduce your indices back to a reasonable level that your small country and budget can handle. You will always need more population in order to succeed in the game. Only buy two to three million per time to avoid having excessive low level workers and a future retirement bubble. It takes time and planning but it is worth it, this game is the bomb.
