That said, you have hit on something more fundamental - limiting world bank investment in a country with 5T+ debt would help a lot. If players were prevented from buying defensive weapons when they hit some level of assets and /or FI as well, that would solve the big problems.

Players at thsi stage might be forced to spend money only on certain things, and prevented from buying most everything else (weapons, transportation, education beyond a certain amount, consumer goods, social security (redcuced automatically to the minimum), etc). These countries wouldnt be able to be abused (as far as I can see), and if their debt continued to climb, then they would evict their presidentrs anyway.

Players should still be allowed to invest, but countries which default (at say 8t? 10t?) would drag that players money into oblivion, meaning they would suffer losses and also meaning that there would be at least SOME risk in lending money.

Still though -this solves the problems but doesnt offer any reason why an emperor should avoid inheriting the debt of other countries they own. PERHAPS to avoid a chain reaction it could be limited to a certain percent , say 50% of the debt, rather than the exact amount. (anything less than 90% should be fine). That way conseuences to abuse and deregistration are still real, but even if someone is insane enogh to create and deregister a country with massive debt, it wont wipe theur empire in a worst-case scenario.
