So, if I have this straight:

With CEO corps in your country, you should run 0% taxes so that they'll stay there, and to attract more. So you run high profit transfer for your state corporations.

If you run truly public corporations, you should run high tax rate, so that you get most of the profit out of them.

And there's no reason, from a profit perspective to make corporations public unless you are aiming for truly publics.

Is this correct?

Yep, that's about the jest of it. There's all different kinds of strategies, but most presidents prefer the private corporations.

Sigh. Oh well. I have a mix of state owned, public, and CEO corps in my country. Guess I just have to make do.

So wait, how do you make profit from CEO corps if there's 0 tax?

Look at the cash flow of an enterprise-owned corp and you'll see a category called "Country resources used".

This is a percentage of the corps REVENUE (not profit) that is paid to the country every month. It will usually far outstrip the tax paid even at 30%.
