I am a new player on GR (Kingdom of Mudassa).

I am currently about 5B in the hole per month as the newbie income booster has run out recently. My financial statement is showing total cost around 16B per month and total profit around 10B. (not accounting for capital purchases either).

I need help to get out of this hole before my cash reserves run out. I'm somewhere over 1 trillion right now so I'm on the verge of bankruptcy yet, but I don't want to get there.

I have about 18 corps, most all of which make a small profit every month.

I had taxes low to try to attract CEO corps but was losing way more per turn so I have bumped taxes up to try to recover on my own, (currently around mid 40% or so). This dropped the shortfall from 7-8B to 5B.

I have deactivated as many weapons as possible, and I don't want to sell all my weapons because eventually I would like to participate in the war side of the game.

My cost for defense is at 3ish B per turn so even eliminating this completely won't fix my problem.

Social security is at 65% and again, dropping this won't help much either as total SS cost is around 1.5B.

nearly all my companies are at 100% hiring and 104ish % production and I am purching effectivity upgrades and quality upgrades as often as possible to increase profits.

Can someone help me?

Your country is in good shape overall. It's just that the investment on the upgrades haven't take off yet. 5B loss is ok so long as you are investing in the right places and as far as i can see you are doing all the right things.

Only Materials Purchased is a bit high but it may be due to a big purchase on consumption. Just in case but are you buying country supplies at quality 100?

Low taxes can attract CEO corps but only if they know you lower it. You need to post in GR forum to let others know. Though right now you do not have enough people to work them anyway.

No need to reduce social security. That will make your welfare index lower which will reduce your production.

Right now, you just have to make sure that all your corps are hiring at 100%. You do not have enough workers(low, medium and high) and high tech engineer and high tech senior. You can either buy some population using gold coins, exchange your excess nurses.
