It really doesnt have anything to do with what you end up paying. It is actually part of what pays for schools and hospitals. Let me cut and past for you 4 of my countries on WG. This was known along time ago, not sure why it is unknown now...


Main Country
Materials Purchased -31,157.89M $E
Materials Sold 60,222.24M $E
Spending by the Population 73,637.40M $E
Added to Government Cost 12,000.00M $E
-----------------------^^^KEY NUMBER
Material Balance -2,350,896.53M $E


Slave #1

Now notice that the Material Balance for the Slaves range from -11.4T to -1.6T. They still pay the exact same thing for government cost however. They all pay 6B a month which is alittle less than what it shows I pay on the monthly profit report. It hasnt changed at all over the enter course of the graph except for spikes when I have bought schools or hospitals. All those slaves are nearly the exact same size , and all have the exact same amount of Elementary, High Schools, Colleges, and Hospitals. The main country however is twice the size of the slaves (slaves are just over 17M, main is just over 36M) and it shows it paying 12B. It has more than twice the schools and hospitals (150 Indexes compared to 100 for Slaves). But I actually pay 15B a month on my monthly profit sheet unless I buy more schools or hospitals. Being how my main country has about 150% more schools and hospitals, it pays about 150% more than the slaves.

So.... As of right now the material accounting means absolutely nothing. I just showed that indeed a country with a 1T deficit pays the same as one with a 12T deficit. Also showed how the actual cost of government is related to all the other indexes in your country and not the material accounting.
