1) A country portfolio is create when you IPO state corps. You can't buy shares as a country, only sell. Your Investment fund, funded by your country's people can invest in corps, but it has not been proven to affect country's income level to be significant.
2) Look for a common market with a lot of players for your to have many options to trade between import and export values. Just know you will be paying for a higher Q and thus a larger price.
3)You may have more corps than what your country can sustain certain levels of workers. Raise education and health care to increase life span and out-put of needed workers. The Ceos may be taking workers as well because they might pay higher than you. So workers are in the process of moving. Another reason could be not enough workers in one class, % wise, so other groups would be fired as well.
4) wouldn't conquering another C3 gain you another country, you may have to pay GCs for it.

OK thank you for your tips here is some info
I have 33 corps
24.4 mill pop.
My health index is 131
Education index is 130
I have 10 back to work clinics
I have enough unemployed workers to cover every job and there is enough trained workers to fill theses slots. however they are not being hired ??
I have maxed all the crops supply by 60 months for everything that they need. so i know that they do not need any supply
I also have 3 foreign corps in my country.

How do you IPO corps ????????

one more question what is the difference between a normal corp and a nationalized corp. i was debating nationalizing some of the corps but don't know what that will mean.

I'm a beginner too (about two weeks) and I found that tweaking with salaries also works (I also bought boosters). Pop could be going to higher paying areas(?).

I found that a setting the schools and hospitals on automation went well - and I also bought them with immediate buy... A good foundation in infrastructure appears to work good.

Also - if you want another country and want to get it by force - don't follow the "win a war in ten minutes" stuff. "Win a war in 10 minutes" - nope! I did - and lost my airforce!
I'm finding I need to carefully plan my next attack on C3s and it's not as easy as it looks...

i beg the differ. turn off ALL auto-bs as it will null-n-void anything you do that it thinks is not best for you, even though it is.

The automation, although we all love to hate it, is actually quite good for a 2 week into it player I would say. One or two things do annoy extremely I see from others, but in all, go with it for a while.

Also a quick question, since I can't use drones to protect my fighter planes anymore, how many would you say I need to take out the interceptor wings in a C3 at war level 3?
