I think that something must be wrong with this game. It keeps saying that I am making around $23B profit per game month, and yet my Cash On Hand is dropping every game month ($7B this game month).

I have deactivated 100% of my military and destroyed 100% of my fortifications leaving my country 100% defenseless (I have no idea how this game expects anyone to have a military if they can't make a profit even without one), set my profit sharing to 80% and my taxes to a ridiculously high 55%, stopped all military spending (including replacing the ammo that my non-existent military is somehow using up), almost all of my corporations are 180 or higher in efficiency and quality (most are 200), my salaries are 160%, and my corporations are 100% staffed.

I did all this in an effort to try to get some profit of any kind. But even though it says that I am making $23B profit every month, I am losing money every single month, and my country assets are also dropping every month.

What am I doing wrong?

For one, tax at 55 and profit at 80 is going to do your corps no good at all. I imagine they are taking money from the country to keep afloat. Also check on your financial statement and look at the numbers for govt money spent buying things and the amount the population spends, is Govt spending lots more? what quality products are you buying for your country? Whats your SS rate and how many people receive it?

There's a thousand things to look at BBL, if you really cant figure it out, post again with your country name and turn off your financial secrecy and I and maybe others can try to turn you around a bit.

Crafty said already a lot and I looked into the country.

The country makes a profit but some of the profit is leaking to your corporations, although it is only part of the profit.

Your corporations are producing at 102%.
This is because the welfare index is low.

check your indexes please.

Increase your education, health and transportation to 120. Later when finances are much better, increase to 130.

This will increase your welfare index and when it hits 120, all your corporations will produce good profits. Your income will increase.

also, try to have private corporations in the country, they are very beneficial for your income.

Then, there is a lot more to do but for now, this will lead to higher profitability.

OK. I spent over $2T getting all the indexes for both cities 120. My main city had it's profit drop from $23B to $6B and Cash On Hand dropped $10B (up from $7B before). So all increasing the indexes did was to increase the costs of the city, decrease profit, and put me in a worse state than I was before. Anyone have any other ideas?

Oh, my country is Republic of B if anyone wants to take a look at it, I'm buying Q=120, SS=80%, and the cost of SS=$1.7B.
