Ok, two things here guys and girls, first... Is it wise to try to become self independant in using local trading and common markets within an empire? Or would i make more profit just buying things off the world market and placing all of my production on the world market?

a) Try it and see

b) Try it and see

Self-independance is hard to achieve and generally you wont make as much, but its a valid style of play.
100M is max, you'll need to buy M's of pop each month to maintain it as many will die, but you get a lot of corps in with 100M. Never been that high myself but Dubltar had several 100M countries not long ago.

Quinton, I'd recommend you do some research on a technique known as "ASQ" - that is, Average Supply Quality. When using this technique, you contract high-quality supplies to corps through your common/local market and buy the (remaining) low-quality supplies from the world market so as to make the average quality of all supplies a certain number. You then sell produced goods on the world market, because selling your own products to your own countries really just means your money is going around in circles.

This technique will earn you quite decent amounts of money and it will increase your common market score, which increases your country's score.
