My country currently has 8 billion dollars in cash. Each time i log in i have even less money. Just a few days ago i had over 1T in cash. The total amount of loans i have is 500B. I have a little over the minimum target of corporations and i never build a new corporation when i dont have enough workers. I AM buying alot of offensive military weapons.
What can i do to start getting money back so i dont go bankrupt or something??

Firstly - stop buying weapons of any kind and deactivate as many as you can. Then attract CEO's to your country and set your tax to 0%. Try to sell off all state corps.

Thats the slow way.

The quick way?

Buy some cash on the cash market!!!

Why sell off state corps? Don't they make you money? How will CEO companies make you money if your tax is at zero?

Each corp (state & private) pays you 30% of their gross profit anyway - without tax. If you put tax on that too, CEO's are making less money - so will go somewhere else. Trust me - I had a good teacher! Arkh Mori taught me everything I know.

You're right Stuart, except it's actually 39.99% that they pay, I got my handy calculator out and did the figures on all 196 of my CEO corps, and it banged 39.99% each time. It was a boring day, okay?

Okay I have a few question about raising income. If the profit transfer percentage is 0 and I raise it to 25 will that take more profit from the CEOs. Next question. If a CEOs corporation isn't making a profit will that effect the countries income? Last question besides taxes is there more I should be doing to keep CEOs happy?

The bit about keeping CEO's happy - I can answer that. It is very important. Without them you would have high unemployment and your country would go bankrupt.

The rest of it I think I will leave to Mr. Farmer - coincidently, an important CEO in my main country!!!
