Two topics. Thanks in advance for replies and any advice (which is always appreciated.)
Corporation products in stock. Before closing them in C3's (so I can draw off more population), does it make sense to buy all products in the corp, for resale or retention? When the corp is closed, the cash is released to the country in the following month? Making those products, essentially free? And selling them is pure profit (as long as consumption quality index/supply quality problems are factored in)?
Just before releasing a C3, one does have the option of removing all products in country stock. You could resell to your own country(ies) or to a enterprise or two. Making sale of them pure profit. Worthwhile to do, once your enterprises are set up so your own supplies into needed areas do not fall below quality mandated by your strategy/consumption quality index factors?
Now, when a C3 is created.. it has a certain number of corporations, and products in stock for the country consumption. Where do these come from? Are they artificially injected into the game? Or do they come from the general supply of goods available on the market? What happens to goods that are left in the country, when it changes it's name? Are they transferred to the new entity, or discarded?

Yes, if you are going to close a corp and can afford to buy all its supplies and product, it would be good to do it because it is lost when closed if you don't.
As far as computer controlled countries, I think they must get reset by the game because I left one that had a huge debt and several months latter it was back to normal - way faster than it could have done on its own. Of course that just means I could take it back and it would be like declaring bankruptcy and clearing the debt at the cost of ammo I suppose. If you did that enough I would hope the game masters would slap you silly though.

The C3's do get reset. But there is a process. Was wondering if the needed goods are purchased on the market, affecting prices and the business cycle, or whether they just magically appear.
Not sure about the slapping silly part (which would be kind of redundant in my case :P). There's guides on how to take down huge numbers of C3's at once.

They buy off the market I believe. I attack 5 countries at a time on WG for my population transfers.( I drain them from around 11-6 million population each gaining around 20 million population in my empire per war total )every two-three days and after I let them go construction and a few other products go into more shortage. The population adds quickly and takes about two weeks for it to regain to around 10.8 million but it will not build as many corporations ( 14-16 is the normal number of state corporations in a c3 )
