Bad Karma (White Giant)

Think it has to do with trying to give smaller countries a chance against larger countries. If a 40M and 6M pop country have the exact same indexes for all domestic categories they would at that point have the same score. To get those same indexes however the bigger country would obviously have several times the amount of schools, roads, etc.
Only military and assets (cash, and corp value)separate them in their ability to be equal in terms of what their score is. The larger country would hopefully have a much larger military, thus higher indexes, meaning more points. Also the larger country would have quite a few more corps I would imagine, thus potentially having higher assets that way. Finally, since all domestic indexes are the same (in this scenario) the larger country would have more cash. (if FIs are the same, the larger would be making more money each month based off the % difference in the scale of spending/buying for the 2 countries)
