This game would still function quite well without CEOs. Jumping Joe, you're an idiot if you think CEOs bidding on your corps is a good thing. You may get some good money quickly, but in the long run you lose out. Xeolyte, read BK's last post. Reread it until you are no longer the inexperienced moron you so aptly demonstrate yourself to be.

I am vehemently against CEOs building in my countries, and I agree that there would be very little economic impact if every CEO was removed from the game. However, I don't see CEOs being removed from the game as a good solution. CEOs can play, too, which is why I don't quite agree with countries being able to ban CEOs thru the game coding. There are ways to remove CEOs and to make them pay dearly for being/trying to be in your country.

As a possible middle ground proposal, consider this suggestion I made in IRC regarding this topic:
As is, for countries with <20M pop, CEOs should hardly have any effect at all. The ones present can be killed, and most, if not all state corps could be made national. If more people had just a little common decency not to build or bid in player countries, there wouldn't have been a need for this poll in the first place. Possibly a better sol'n than perfectly blocking CEOs out would be to allow presidents to nationalize at least one corp per million population, keeping the minimum number of nationalizeable corps at 24, of course.
