Building your country

Build roads, train tracks, and schools! Improve your social security and water maintenance! Build hospitals!
You can build roads, train tracks, and water treatment installations by clicking on "Transportation Index" at the bottom of your country's home page. This takes you to the Transportation and Water Treatment page. Search for "build new roads," "build new train tracks," and "build new water treatment facilities." Expand your infrastructure aggressively.

All these functions are also directly accessible from the menu at the top of each page. If you use these menus, you will be able to get to any of the game pages with a single click.

Education is key to your long-term successful economic growth. You can build more schools by clicking on "Education Index" at the bottom of your country's home page. This takes you to the Education Details page. Search for "build a new elementary school," "build a new high school," and "build a new university."

You can tell your schools and universities how to educate people. Click on "set education priorities" in the Education Details page. Make sure that the numbers add up to at least 120. The ratio between the numbers determines the ratio of professions that the schools "produce." You should give teachers, university teachers, and medium level managers a relatively high priority in the beginning. It will allow you to improve your education system. Medium level managers are frequently in short supply because they are also recruited as officers in the army.

Adapt the education priorities to the needs of your country. Check out the Occupation and Income Details by clicking on "Employment Index" at the bottom of your country's home page to see the potential shortages in certain professions. Anticipation is key here.

You should raise social security payments. Click on "Social Security" at the bottom of your country's home page. Then click on "You can change the social security payments." You cannot raise social security by more than 2 percent. You can set a target and the changes will be automated or change the percentages every day until you reach 60 to 80 percent.

Do this only if your country can afford paying the cost. If your financial index is lower than 80, wait for the financial situation to improve before you get into extra cost.

Look into the financial pages and make sure you understand the figures. Use the hints that are available on nearly every line of text to understand the numbers and make sure you know what the monthly shortages or surpluses are.
