New player...been playing for a few days. I've been reading the forums religously and the advice on them is very helpful in getting my country off on the right foot. The "official" documentation leaves a little to be desired. One player (along with several others on the board) that I consider successful is Hymy. When examining "hymyland" I noticed he has an incredible $54 trillion on loan to other nations. Obviously that provides a pretty nice cash flow with the interest. Some related questions:
1. How on earth did he ever amass that amount of capital? I also noticed he has $6 trillion just sitting there. So, basically, he has earned over $60 trillion total.
2. Hymy, if you're reading this...how long (in real time) has hymyland been in operation? Would like to get an idea of how long it takes to become a real heavyweight...
3. Is the high amount of loans related to loaning money to either slaves you've conquered or companies you own in CEO mode? Basically rigging the finances for the mother country perhaps?
4. Why isn't "hymyland's" population at like 60 million with all the countries he has conquered? Is there a cap to the amount of population one can transfer? Is there a certain point where too much population is a detriment?
I know it's a lot to ask, but I've tried to be specific and ask questions that I haven't seen directly answered on the forum. Countries with this type of cash can do whatever they want, and I fancy myself in that position someday...
