I'm new and trying to understand how things work. Any comments will be appreciated.
The Keystone State
Military force: 180,285 (all defense)
Percent of pop in army: 4.7
What I looked at:
The top 20 non-peaceful countries in the rankings.
Countries labled 'Very Aggresive' in top 300.
The % of workers employed in military to total pop.
What I found:
Of the top 20, most employ around 2%. 1 maybe 2 employ around 5%. 1 employs around 10%.
Most 'VA' employ between 5 and 10%.
Of a 'VA' where I could see stats aprox half was Off/Str.
C3's default is around 4 to 5%,at 4M pop, all def.
I realize that:
A country, whose army is larger than my entire workforce, could step on me whenever they wanted to.
As my country's pop increases I will become attractive to an expansionist warlord.
My question is. How long should my military grow in same proportion as my pop?
