All of the shares my country has invested in has lost money. Would you recommend investing in shares?

It's very improbable that all of the shares your country invested in have lost money. The investment funds usually buy low and sell high, though not always. Sometimes they lose money but they mostly have gains.
Share splits and reverse splits distort the accounting of the purchase prices paid. That might make some capital gains look like losses.

Okay, thank you. I was just looking at them and they all were bought at a higher price then the current market price so that may be it.

I also put out a loan, but I don't think anyone has accepted it.

I get the same thing. Price paid 42,000. Current price 550...

Dont forget that most of those shares pay dividends, so even if you lost money on the actual share price, the dividends could put you in the plus if you have held the share for a long time. I wish dividends would be represented in the adjusted share purchase price.

Price Paid= 213,775.36.
Market Price= 0.07.
Quite a difference...

Remember that presidents and CEOs are your opponents. Some of them are sneaky and will carefully raise the valuation of corps via stockpiling, supply chain control, tax changes and the like in order to make a nice profit on the IPO.
Once all the expensive shares are sold, the corporation controller can crash the share price and buy shares back from anyone doing automatic trading at rock bottom prices.
The moral of the story is to invest carefully and take note of which owners run corps well and which ones work on a "boom and bust" cycle.

I always take manual control of my investment funds. I don't buy and sell. I buy and hold and let the dividends do their work. Even the boom and bust people don't affect me because I never sell.

Click 'shares' on the left hand menu, then 'view share market'.
Corps with the lowest P/E will generally have demand but no supply - but you can still put in a request to buy them, it's just like ordering products, you have to wait until some more come onto the market.
Look at higher P/E values to find corps with shares that are offered but not bought yet. On FB right now, you have to go down to P/E = 52 to find shares lying around, the exact number will be different in different worlds. Be wary of corps where the P/E is trending strongly upwards of course!
