SECOND: AUTO-CORP BUILDING

This is the easiest to fix, Tom. For all I know, you might already have this factored into the intervention.

To prevent unemployment from overbuilding, set up a corp:population ratio that has to be met for the intervention to be triggered.

Less than 1 corp per 1 million population seems reasonable since the accepted advice for newbies is "in general, when you are starting out, build 2 corps for every million people in your country."


Likewise, if you want to keep coddling people (I say that with disdain, but I understand your business model and reasons), then why not set a feature to start closing corps with the most debt when a ratio of greater than 4-5 corps per 1m people occurs. I'm not joking, I've seen noobs build 20-25 corps in c3 size countries. It's not a pretty thing. Better, would be to set some kind of hard limit at 4-5 corps per 1m people and give them a change to pump new population into the country.
