So I'm been trying to get my country profitable, and have adjusted salaries recently but any gains that my population tax makes is offset by massive increase in health costs. Right now my govt salaries is 180. It was increased from 170. Cost went up for medical from 590k to 643k I don't understand why when I look at other's country their med car is much closer to the amount that the people are putting in. Mine is well above double. Any ideas?

In the future, if you put what world you are on others can review your situation easier.

In my experience, what the people can afford to spend on health care is dependent on their salaries. If in general, their salaries are higher they will take on more of the costs.

In reviewing your country, it appears you are in the process of raising corp salaries which are sub 200 right now. As this amount increases, you should see more public contributions in health care and education spending as well as more income tax collected.
