Can we add a GDP indicator to the game is would add more realism.

We already capture the Good and services produced by corps on the Business Stats page.

We could use the salaries page of government workers as the value of the services they provide (of course assuming that those Gov workers are being paid the total sum of their product). This would allow players to track how fast their economies are growing

From this, we could also get GDP per capita and Debt to GDP, Military, Health Education spending to GDP. We could also calculate spending as a % of Revenues and total spending.

We could also get a deficit as a percentage of GDP. This metric along with the revenue and expense metrics mentioned above could be used to give each country a credit rating. This rating would then be used to improve international credit markets by having different interest rates and tenor depending on credit rating.

We can also add simpler metrics, instead of the players having to calculate it.

Labour force to Population %
Labour force by Sector
Avg and Median Wage
Foreign direct investment â How much money are enterprises investing in your country.
Yearly capital expenditure â Building roads, schools, hospital, factories, etc

And also add a way we could request loans directly from nations and the world bank

Thanks for the ideas.

My problem is that we already have so many indicators.
pages full of numbers and I am not sure we need more.

Maybe we need to reduce some first.
GDP is an important number but what are the consequences of a high or low GDP?

The loans market should remain a market.
the world bank only gives loans if there are no offers by players.

Yes we are thankful for the world bank but we should also have the ability to send loans directly to others like allies that is in debt but havenât received money as yet
The interest rate would stay default but we should really have that option to send loans directly

I understand your point.
Fact is that everyone can get loans, either from players or the world bank. Loans are always available.

Adding direct loans will be a large development job and adds very little to the game. There are so many urgent issues and features that we should work on.

I have not noticed any changes to any of my slaves (I have 37) in recent times. You might want to check your settings maybe you've lost the beginner protection?

Keeping a very large empire is financially difficult.
The cost did not increase recently at all.
It was reduced. It was in the game news several months ago.

But in general, government cost increases with the size of the empire.

Your empire is huge and the cost is high.

@ Amalie

I took a little peek at your countries. Please don't be offended but there is room for improvement in almost all of your countries. If you need help or advice to help manage such a large empire feel free to PM me.

You can take a peek at my empire on LU. You have a bit more population but I make a lot more money then you. The difference between us is more then a trillion per game month.
