Playing Simcountry you can choose to participate in the full game, including the war game or you can decide to play a peaceful president. It is possible to change your game style any time you want.
You can build a large army, wage war and create an empire.
Peaceful presidents, concentrate on their economy, earn money and build their empires without war.
The Five Simcountry worlds are in the Aquila The Eagle constellation.
Kebir Blue and Fearless blue are the fourth and sixth planets of Vega minor - RG174, 25.3 light years from earth.
White Giant, Golden Rainbow and Little Upsilon are the second, third and fifth planets of Mauri Kappa - RK091, 25.2 light years from earth.
The distance between Vega minor and Mauri kappa is 0.2 light years.
There are 5 worlds and using space ships, you can travel between them, move products and trade them, store weapon and ammunition on space stations and use them later if needed.
Taking care of your empire requires a good strategy and sometimes decisive action.
Fearless Blue is more accomodating for players who want to participate in the war game. New players are protected while building their defenses.
War is part of Simcountry. You can however become a peaceful president and you will never be involved in any war.
The worlds are densely populated. Countries have populations ranging from 9 to 300 millions.
Some of the most populated countries are very successful. They can build many corporations and a strong financial base for their countries.
Countries can become highly populated. Some are poor but some are so rich and stable, they turn into money makers.
Make sure your citizens are happy. Check salary levels, unemployment, education and health.
Increase your income with more corporations, set tax levels and build an army that fits the financial power of the country.
Population is small at the start. It will grow fast if conditions are good.
There are however other ways to increase your population and catch up quickly with the Highly populated countries. Look into the cash market feature.
Population is an important asset in Simcountry. Your corporations need many workers and many well educated professionals.
Build fast. Make sure your education is improving. Build universities and schools. Corporations will increase your employment and your income.
Build more hospitals to improve your health system.
Spending may increase above your income. This is no problem for a while. If growth is fast, you will be able to repay loans.
There are many empires in each world. Some are large and forceful but none can dominate a very large area. There is always room for new and even stronger empires.
Empires are easy to build. You need to conquer several countries but there are many without a president and wars are initially easy.
Large empires are tougher to build and maintain. With 10 developed countries you will become an influential emperor.
Empires can also be created by bidding for countries on the Cash Market or buying countries that do not have a president.
If your economy is strong, you will be able to purchase valuable assets in all the worlds.
Protecting your countries is essential. If you want to play the war game, build a strong defence first.
We have seen many large empires go down in flames.
Join a strong federation. Federation members are protecting each other during war, making it easier to create good defences.
If you plan to participate in the war game, start building your defence in the first month you play.
Your main country will always be protected against war unless you start one.
Waging an offensive war requires a large and well equipped offensive army and large stocks of ammunition.
Attacking countries far from your own, requires landing units and a strong air force and navy to support them.
A navy requires many ships, weapons, navy airplanes, ammunition and support. It must also be defended properly.
Find out what is needed for success before you start a long range adventure
Nuclear weapons are disastrous. Damage stretches beyond the attacked countries into their neighbours and they may become involved.
Nuclear weapons are a deterrent. Don't be trigger happy.
Nuclear defence is essential. If set up correctly, it can prevent such attacks on your country.
Simcountry is a strategy game where you are the president of a country or the leader of an empire.
Simcountry is an economic & financial game and if you are interested, it is a war game. Playing Simcountry, you develop your own strategy.

Corporations in Simcountry are very large and essential for employment
Your country may have 10 to 120 corporations. Develop these corporations and they will become money makers for your countries.
Your economy depends on income from corporations and also needs the jobs they create.
Check the world market supply and demand. Make sure you make products that are in short supply.
Products that are in short supply are more profitable for those who make them.
Follow the changing market and adapt your corporation mix. Sell or close losing corporations and create profitable ones.
Take good care of your corporations and their workers. Increase quality and efficiency. High quality products are selling for a higher price.
Make salaries in your corporations competitive and check stocks of raw materials. Make sure production is at 100% of capacity.
If corporations are short on workers or materials, production drops.
Most trading takes place on the world market.
This is a real time market with offers and requests coming from all the countries in the world.
If production is smaller than demand for any product, these shortages will cause a price increase. Over-production will cause product pricing to decline.
Contracts between players are handled outside the market at the agreed price.
Contracts can reduce price volatility and ensure the delivery of many products you need.
Products like Plutonium, Uranium and all nuclear weapons, do not sell on the open market. These products are traded directly between players.
Successful corporations can go public and trade on the stock market.
If you are the largest shareholder of a public corporation, you are the CEO and in control of the corporation.
Participate in this power play and take control of the most powerful corporations.
Trading on the share market can be used to gain control of major corporations and to generate income.
Public corporations are able to develop to higher quality levels, become more efficient and generate more profit.
Bring many of your corporations to the stock market. Develop these corporations and generate high income.
Active share trading allows you to become partner in the best corporations.
Dividend income and profit from shares will increase your financial power and influence
Use both your country and your Enterprise to build a valuable Portfolio.
Building a country requires a good strategy and large investments.
Earn the required investment money as you go or you can take loans and develop your empire faster. Use the gold coins you receive to invest even more for faster growth.
Your income should grow fast enough to allow you to repay your loans including interest.
Check the financial pages and learn what the numbers mean.
Balancing your income and cost is essential in the long run. If you overspend and create a large debt, repayment will become more difficult.
Check the cost of defence, education, health etc. and tune taxes to improve your income. Private and public corporations will increase your income more than state corporations.
Use the money market to receive loans for your countries corporations and enterprises.
If you have large amounts of cash, you can offer loans on the loan market.
Income from interest will help improve your financial position. Many players have money loaned out and they enjoy the extra income.
