Why is it that Everything in my country is going down the tubes? The value of my corporations have been steadily going down ever since I've started playing, even with an excess of workers and production and hiring at 100%. My income has been going down, along with my total profits, which has gone from 2 bil. a year and a half ago to -4 bil., even though I haven't been on SimCountry for almost a week. The only things that could affect this would be the usual development of schools, hospitals, and transportation, but I also ordered 200 offensive anti missile batteries and 200 attack helicopters the last time I was on. Is it these offensive purchases that have caused my economy to start falling? And how do I increase the value of my corporations (without the obvious upgrades)?

Education, health and trasportation indexes will affect the overall health of your corperations.
Of coarse it costs money to maintain the indexes.
Military also costs money to maintain every month. A couple basics could help your corporations turn a profit, try set quality of supplies to 185. Salary to 300. Put products on the market +30% and decrease by 10%. buy supplies at best price. Reduce the overall tax but make sure the tax and profit transfer total ='s 80.

My country is: The Land of Reaper Jr

and well what am I supposed to do to balance out the budget it already takes to maintain my indexes? And the salaries of my corporations are all below 300, wouldn't setting them higher make them Lose money?

Give tax cuts to the wealthy, just kidding, only in America. :P
I guess one would make budget cuts. I don't recomend cutting education or health maybe some trasportation and military. Sell on the world market to do so.
Make sure government salaries are slightly over 75% of corporate salaries.
Correct, setting them higher will make them lose money. the other setting will help make up for the loss. It's also temporary, your wellfare indexes will grow and production will top off at maximum. You also won't face mass unemployment every time your country gets the sniffles.
Take note of what corporations lost money last year, if the same corp loses the next year, close it. Keep social secuity at 80% and employment high.

It's difficult to maintain an army and start an economy for anyone, your economy is esentual however to run a succeful military on FB. State corps just arn't going to be enough. Start an enterprise or convince other CEO's to build and buy corporations in your country.

your state corporations aren't buying upgrades. go to "upgrades" and check the box to automatically order quality upgrades.

as quality increases, so will profit.

Note added to Kitsune:

This process takes a few real days to complete depending on the world, and during this time some of your corps may even show losses because the upgrades cost a good bit for your corporations to purchase, if you are using a ceo, when you extend the account use the booster for upgrades (5gc gets you 60 upgrades and 5 days added to your ceo)much better then paying the 30 gc to extend without getting the boosters ;)
