The birth rate depends on the number of "people" in the 0-4 years old group (not the total population). If the numbers in that group will decline, the birth rate will recover. Extrapolation of current trends does not make sense. The changes will not be lineair.

Birth rates also depends on the score but that is a weaker factor.

Countries with 4 or 5 millions can grow very fast with transfers. We are seeing several examples in the game. You can go from 5 to 25 millions in a week. We never had a fast track in the game before.

We would like to see population declining gradually to 40-50 millions. Countries will not end up with old people only.

We cannot predict whether the current formula will end up at 40 or 50M. Will have to wait and see but it is not going to implode or fall apart in any way.

We are not going to cut the population in two or any other factor. Population is one of the main assets and arbitrary changes will not be fair.
