Alright, I have negative one trillion dollars, I have over eight (8) TRILLION in national debt, and I have tried increasing salaries, obliterating my defensive force,closed hospitals (brought back since that only made it worse), I increased my tax, yet I am still trillions in debt, and not only that, but I am making an average gross income of negative ten billion dollars per month! For the love of god someone help me, and give me some advice that is guaranteed to work, I have tried everything that I have been told to do, and everything I could think of, please for the love of god tell me what I am doing wrong!!!

Add population, add corporations (start with CEO ones), and gradually raise indexes, then earn Gold Coin awards. Consider joining a federation or common market for assistance. Check live chat for help as well. Check Security Council tab and post a message in forum asking for assistance from there.

I think it's something to do with your Welfare Index. I can't see your profit/loss, though - if you remove your secrecy parameters, I'll take a look.

So here's my diagnosis:
Your corporation production levels are at less than 100%, yet your hiring is at 100%. This means that your Welfare must be lower than normal.

Here's the treatment:
1) Raise your Social Security Payments to 90%. This should raise costs slightly, but it will also push up your Welfare Index, which will raise your profits.
2) Raise your transportation index to 130. Do this slowly.
3) Lower your tax rate to 30% - your current tax rate might be hurting the growth of your corporations.
4) Set salaries of government workers to 226 (under Finance-->Salaries) and set salaries of corporate workers to 300. This may seem counter-intuitive, but it will increase worker production and therefore it will increase your profit.
5) Push your Health Index up to around 120 - that is, try and build around 1.5 times the number of hospitals your country needs. Do this before raising your transportation index.

If you need further help, send a message to "The Republic of Brutillius". I'm on every day and I'm happy to give advice.
