BK, I think you are making a straw man. That said, I think you make valid points. To moderate the extreme you present, what do you think of this proposal:

Sprinkle c3s around the world (maybe 5-10% of all countries) that behave like human peaceful countries. CEOs could build any kind of corps in these c3s. The automation would build corps like normal c3s. Starting in these countries or warring with these countries would not be permitted, however.

The rest of the c3s could be reduced to dormant states, kinda like Avalon states. Zero population, no corps, etc. CEO corps already in these countries would be given just enough workers to continue producing at 100%. Otherwise, the country would be empty and featureless. These c3s could be registerred or declared on. When the country is registerred, default levels are set for everything. A corp profile will appear that can be influenced by the new player, but will mostly depend on what is needed in the world right then. The corps would ideally be with small initial debt, and maybe have a month or two of supply built in. This would help solve the non-built corps problem.

When such a c3 is declared upon, the c3 will go to a default state that is slightly stronger defensively than the default state a new registerer would get. The corps in the corp profile would be completely determined by the world market at the declare time. To discourage corp bombing, corps would be fairly strongly defended. If the c3 doesn't get conquered, it would simply go back to its dormant state. Any amount of war damage would be tracked, but it would disappear quickly (~1T per game year?)

The smaller economy would be more player manipulable, which is what I think Avalon was aiming for. There would still be some level of stability, but there is certainly room for economic manipulation.
