Some information on "Why should I use 0% tax?"

Here are some numbers from my country. I did an experiment and raised taxes to 1% for exactly one game month. I apologize to any players who feel they were slighted by this, if so contact me and we'll arrange some method of compensation.

At 100% tax, I would receive 91.18B a month in corporate taxes for that month. This is assuming that all the companies stayed in my country after I did so. Yes, it's possible this was a really terrible month, but it was a random month so it's not a worthless control.

At the same time, I made 425B in country resources (the x% you receive simply by having enterprises in your country).

As you can see, this is 467% higher for country resources than 100% tax rate. 4,668% higher than 10% tax. And obviously I wouldn't have such a high number of corporations at 10%, so it would probably work out to be even higher due to a lower number of corporations in higher tax countries.

One Month:
Corporate Tax 911.88M SC$ (1%, 91.18B@100%)
Enterprise Income 425,633.23M SC$
