Entertainment: You are quite perceptive in noting that this game is NOT Utopia. It was designed to be a totally different game. It is also aimed at a different audience.

In examining your Enterprise, I notice you have started the "hard" way, by bidding on existing corporations. Yes, it does take a long time to acquire a corp that way. Building your own takes much less time, anywhere from 1-12 hours realtime.

FWIW, you might want to start over and just start by building ONE service corp. Run it for a few days (or more) to learn the game, then build a 2nd one.

DO NOT BUY ANY EXISTING CORPS UNTIL YOU HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE. Once you learn how to run a corp well, then you can go bargain-hunting. Buying a corp for 10M that has 70B in debt means you spent 70.01 B (plus all that ugly interest). You can build new for about a quarter or less of that.

Look at how some of the top players have set up their corps. Learn from others, ask questions.
You have to learn about setting selling price, upgrades, salaries, managing debt, and learning what the different sections of your corp report are telling you. None of these things are hard, but it can be a little much at the start.

Your current situation is going to produce a frustrating experience for you. Your service corp is profitable but your other 2 are not, and are unlikely to be. If you see a corp is failing, and you can't fix it, it is better to close it while is has a small debt rather than wait for the game to close it for you when the debt is over 150B.

You aren't the first player to start off the way you did. I did the same thing about a year ago. :)
