Usually, I have profits of around 25B every month. The cash doesn't change accordingly, though. Are there any expenses that aren't accounted for in profit/loss but change the overall cash? Thanks.

I'm fairly new to the game so I could be wrong here but as far as I can tell material purchases for the country are not included in the profit/loss calculation these are usually purchased automatically by your set purchasing strategies in the trade menu. The country does I believe get paid back for what it buys in the end but if supplies in reserve were increasing I'd expect to see cash decline accordingly.

Of course purchases of weapons are not included in profit/loss nor buying schools, hospitals, roads etc, the game will also be buying small numbers of these as a new player if you are bellow game level 4 with indexes under 120 and have not turned off the automation features.

Note also that your purchases do not always go through immediately and things you ordered several game months ago could still be undelivered and thus eating your cash, going to the trade menu then pending deliveries will show you if goods are on order undelivered still.

There may well be other things that are not included in the profit/loss calculation, I know for example share purchases and sales by the country are not etc.

Alright, thanks man. I do not use the automation features, though, what makes me think that most profit is going to supplies.

I did know about facilities and weapons being excluded of losses but didn't know about the supplies.

That pretty much solves it.
