The military budget grows far too quickly in weak economic countries when compared to extremely profitable countries. I suggest a change in the formula, with a strict base off of the Financial Index (FI) of the country.
The most balanced formula i could get at, was: 150B*(FI/100)^2 per month maximum of FI*5B.. (B being Billion)
This sets a country with a Finance Index of 100 at 150B per month of budgetary growth, with a maximum of 500B total, which only looks slightly less than the current formula. However, countries with a FI as low as 20 would have only 6B per month extra space, and a maximum of a puny 100B. At the same time, a country with a powerful 300FI would be able to buy 1,350B per month, or they could save for 2 months and buy 1,500B.
There could possibly be another limit based on population size, or actual income, but first there should be a useful formula to work from.
Don't you agree?

This proposal will make it very easy to destroy countries by first destroying their industry and render them defenseless when their FI is down. Defensive weapons should be within reach for any country. The purchase of offensive and strategic weapons is much more difficult when the FI is <40.
