I agree that I know very little about politics--why do you think I'm avoiding the issue in my posts in the UCF death camp thread?

Anyway, this is from the Feb 10, 2004 update:

Social security as a cause of civil unrest

If a country has a financial index higher than 150 but keeps the social security index lower than 50, it will experience civil unrest. The chance per corporation to be hit by civil unrest is: (50/social security index) / (150/financial index). If the social security index is 40 and the financial index is 180, the chance for damage in each corporation is 1.5%.

If a country has a financial index lower than 80 but keeps the social security index higher than 60, it will experience civil unrest. The chance per corporation to be hit by civil unrest is: (social security index/60) / (financial index/80). If the social security index is 75 and the financial index is 40, the chance for damage in each corporation is 2.5%. All types of corporations may be the target of a rebellion


Now, I can't see your FI, but I can see your SS index. It is definitely above 60. I can only guess that your FI is/was less than 80. With 0/0 taxes. And with average salaries less than 200%, I doubt you're getting much from taxing the employees, either. Even without the civil unrest, I would wager that your country is losing more money than it is making, or if it is making a net profit by some miracle, it isn't much.

I may know little about politics, but apparently you know less about this game than I know about politics. I should be very interested to see proof that you "have been running a surplus for a very very long time." If you provide that proof (i.e. you lower the secrecy on your FI and I see that you are correct), I will retract the claim at the beginning of this paragraph.
