Country Controlled Public Corporations Country controlled public corporations are public corporations where the largest share holder (which is not an investment fund) is the country. The largest share holder does not have to hold a majority of the shares. If the country holds 51% of the shares, it is obviously the largest share holder but it may also hold 10% of the shares and if none of the other share holders have more that 10%, it remains the largest. It is possible that one of the other shareholders will buy more shares and have more than 10%. If this shareholder is an enterprise, the corporation will become enterprise controlled public corporation and control will pass to the enterprise that holds these shares. In case that an investment funds is the major shareholder, control will remain with the largest shareholder which in not an investment fund. Investment funds can be large shareholders but they never control corporations. Public corporations can achieve higher quality and efficiency than state and private corporations. Public corporations where the largest share holder has less than 25% of the shares, can achieve even much higher quality and efficiency and can become very profitable.

Country Order Quantity The ordered quantity when the country stock drops below the low-water mark. The quantity can be in months or in units, based on the chosen strategy.
Country Order Strategies Decide when country stock should be replenished. By the default, the game makes a decision based on the consumption by the population last month. As president you can decide to create replenishment orders based on the consumption last month or based on absolute quantities in units. For products that are not used by the population, the president can only trigger replenishment orders on absolute quantities.
Country Resources Used This is the amount of money paid to the country this month, or year to date etc. for the use of country resources. A corporation residing in a country, must make this payment which is a percentage of the corporate revenue. Only privately owned and public corporations pay this. State owned corporations do not pay as they are owned by the state.
Country Stock This is the number of products the country or enterprise now have in stock. You can see how many you have and decide how many you want or can purchase.

Coverage Consumption Contracts This column shows the quantities of products that are covered by contracts signed by the country. Next to it, a percentage is shown. If the quantity of products that are already contracted is equal to the consumption level, the percentage should be 100%. If no contracts have been signed, the percentage is 0.
Coverage Consumption Contracts Percentage These figures show per product, which percentage of the needs of the country is covered by contracts. If the percentage is zero, it may mean that there are no corporations in the country or in the common market that produce that product. A number under 100 may mean that production by corporations in the country or common market is insufficient to cover the needs of the country. If the percentage is 100%, it means that production of that product is sufficient.
Coverage Supply Contracts This column shows the quantities of products that are covered by signed contracts by the corporation. Next to it, a percentage is shown. If the quantity of products that are already contracted is equal to the quantity used by the corporation in the production process, the percentage should be 100%.

Damage by War War damage happens when a target is attacked. It must be repaired in the months following the attack and the cost of repair is high. If damaged, corporations produce less or nothing and city damage must be repaired quickly. The repair money is invested in construction. The home page of the country shows how much war damage is not repaired yet. The cost of repairs is showing on the financial pages.
Damage Point When you fight during war and you attack and destroy targets, you create damage points to tour enemy. Each fortification you destroy adds to the damage points and so do damaged cities, corporations etc. The war index of your enemy is 100 less the damage points. if you succeed in making 100 damage points against your enemy, his war index will be zero and you win the war.
Date Offered This is the date the product was offered on the market. The longer the product is waiting and remains unsold, the more desperate the corporation will become. It is important to make sure all products made by the corporations are sold.
Debt This is the current debt of the country. Debt is part of the net cash computation.
Debt in Corporations This is the total amount of debt in all the corporations owned by the country. Cash can move between the country and its corporations and debt is therefore part of the net cash of the country.
Debt of the Country This is the amount of money the country owes to the world bank or other players. The amount is taken as loans and the country is paying interest. You can view the list of your loans with their interest rates and date they must be paid back. Loans are fine if you invest in growth in increase your income long term. High loans and low income will result in more loans, even higher cost and may end in bankruptcy.
Debt of the Enterprise This is the total debt of the enterprise. Enterprises take loans to pay for new corporations and to pay for corporations they purchase. Debt carries interest and the interest payments are depressing the capability of the enterprise to be profitable.
Default Country Order Strategy The game makes a decision based on the consumption by the population last month.
Defence Target You are protected from war in the initial playing period and you can extend that period. Long term, you do need defence.
The target number is an initial level of defence your country should have. It is insufficient in case of a large war. Lower levels of defence may invite attacks.
Defense Budget This is the amount of money reserved for all defence functions. You should try to set the budget correctly. Large differences between the budget and the real cost will result in lower budget index and will also damage other indexes. Setting the budget too high is as bad as setting it too low.
Defense Cost This is the amount of money spent on defence in the current month. It is shown in Million. The amount showing here is spent on maintaining all the defence forces, including the salaries of all soldiers and officers. The amount that was spent for the purchasing of new weapon, ammunition and the building of military bases, fortifications and the navy carriers is not included.
Defense Index The defence index is a measure for the quality and size of army. It is composed out of three indexes, the defensive, offensive and strategic indexes. Make sure that the defensive index is at a reasonable level or even a high level as some countries are very aggressive and may try to conquer your country. A defence index of several hundreds is hard to achieve but may be considered quite safe. If you are not interested in war, it is possible to play the game as a peaceful country.
Defense Size This is the size of your defence force. It shows how many soldiers and officers serve in your army. Officers are in fact mid level managers younger than 50 years. Soldiers are low level workers under 50 years. When the army needs more soldiers and officers, it recruits them from the industry and it may suffer from shortage of man power and corporations may reduce production. If the army is reduced (partially into the reserves or weapons are lost, some officers and soldiers may return to the job market.
Defensive Force The defensive force consists of several defense only weapons. It can not be used to attack. Typically there are many interceptors, helicopters, missile interceptor batteries, defensive missile batteries and ground forces. Anti missile batteries (or missile interceptor batteries) are essential in the defence as they can stop some of the incoming missiles. Defensive missile batteries are essential in trying to destroy the attacking forces in their own bases and reduce the attacking power of your enemy. Read details about each weapon system in the documentation. It includes the capabilities of each and every weapon system.
Defensive Force Index This is a measure of quality and size of the defensive forces. It should be at a level of 200 or higher for the country to be defended at a reasonable level. If the enemy is a large, strong country, a level of 300 to 800 might be needed. The defence should include many helicopters, interceptors and ammunition for both. To reduce the damage by enemy attacks, the defence should have thousands of missile interceptor batteries and ammunition. Defensive missiles will damage attacking weapons and are needed to deter attacks.

Disabled Disabled people can not work due to a disability or sickness. They receive social security payments. Their number depends mainly on the population of the country. During war, thousands or even millions may be wounded and will be added to the numbers of disabled. The wounded can be treated in war hospitals. Some will die, many will return to the ranks of the workers. Disabled people can be treated in special clinics. Read more about this on the health pages and find out about the conditions for setting up these special clinics. Wounded and disabled do not participate in the economy. This may cause shortage of workers and professionals and also increases the cost of social security.

Earning per Share In Recent Period This is the profit that the corporation made in a recent period, divided by the number of shares of the corporation. It is a measure of profitability of the corporation. The more profit per share, the better the corporation is doing. Increased profit per share will reduce the P/E ratio which is the price of a share divided by the profit per share which is an even better measure for the success of the corporation and its market value. High profit per share will lead to lower P/E ratio (the lower the P/E ratio the better). The period for which the profit is measured is longer than a game year and also depends on the number of game months per day.

Economic Support - Easy Mode Several features that will guarantee that essential parameters in your country remain within reasonable values. These features are in effect for everyone playing less than a year. We strongly recommend to keep this feature on.
Education Budget This is the monthly education budget. This is the amount reserved by the government for education. The total cost of education includes the government contribution but also includes a contribution by the population. Only high income families pay a contribution to the education system.
Education Contributions This is the amount of money that is paid by the population for educations. It is very low for the lower income groups. With higher income, the percentage paid for education is increasing. The contribution is in most cases not sufficient to pay for the education system. In general, the contributions by the population are insufficient and most of the budget for education comes from government income.
Education Contributions and Cost The country is paying for the education system. This is cost for the country. People in the country and mainly those with higher income are paying a contribution from their income to ease the cost of education. In almost all cases, the total cost of education is much higher than the contribution by the population.
Education Costs This is the cost of the education system this month. It includes salaries and other cost involved in keeping schools, high schools and universities running. This amount does not include the one time cost of building new schools, high schools and universities. The education system also includes the cost of maintaining the back to the job market schools (universities) that give a one year training to house wives who want to return to the job market. Read more about the conditions for the setting up of such schools on the education pages.
Education Index This is the index that represents the level of education in the country
The higher the index, the better the education. The index has three components. The school index, the high school index and the university index.
The education index tends to move in the direction of the lowest of these three indexes.
Long term, try to increase the education index to a level of up to 200.
Education Priorities You can influence the education system and make it educate professionals in areas you need them. It takes time to train them and you should set these priorities in advance. The education priorities are shown as numbers. The total of these numbers should be 120 or more. A total lower than 120, reduces the number of graduates from your schools. A total higher than 120 does not influence the number of graduates.
Education setup and development This feature will gradually build your education system in a balanced way and bring it to an index level of 120.
Efficiency of your Corporation Corporations are successful if they can produce products at a lower cost. High efficiency means that they can produce the same products and use a smaller number of workers. As a corporate owner you may invest in more efficiency and improve the performance of a corporation. This is done by purchasing upgrades. The upgrading process can be manual and can also set to automatic but it will result in high cost. Upgraded corporations are in general much more profitable. The boosters system in the game makes it possible to upgrade corporations much faster. Look into the booster system when you login. It is part of the gold coins section.
Elementary Schools This line shows the number of elementary schools that are currently available in your country.
It also show the number needed for a reasonable education level and the elementary school index which is a measure of how good elementary education is.
A level under 100 is insufficient.

Empire Leader This is the leader country in the empire. Each empire has an empire leader. This is usually the strongest country in the empire. Empire leader can be replaced by a different country.
Empire Slave This is a name for a country that is not the empire leader. It is part of the empire and was probably conquered in war and added to the empire.

EmpiresLink Empires
Employees This is the number of employees currently working for the corporation. The numbers are shown per profession of the workers. Some are zero because the corporation does not need this category of employees. Numbers change with the hiring level. They also change when the corporation is purchasing upgrade products and the production process becomes more efficient. The number of low levels employees is reduced and some high level employees must be hired.
Employment Index The index is a measure for employment in the country. It is higher and closer to 100 if employment in the country is good. At 90 to 95 it is very good. Higher employment levels are hard to achieve but possible. If the country has many corporations and the education system is well tuned to produce the professionals needed in the economy, employment numbers of 98% are possible and have been seen in some countries. The employment level is an important index and counts heavily in the country score. If employment is good, there is a high probability that other indexes are also strong. High unemployment will increase the cost of social security. It means that the economy is not running optimally and that income from corporations may be low too.
Employment Level Last Month This shows how many people were employed last month in the country. The number grows if corporations are increasing their production and when the number of corporations increases. It is also higher when there are more schools, hospitals and other government activities. The army also hires many soldiers and officers from the ranks of low level workers and mid level managers. A large army can employ from several hundred thousands to several millions.
enowwhat How to improve your enterprise
entBankruptMessage The netcash limit for enterprises is @debtLimit@T SC$.

The netcash position of "@entName@" is @netCash@T SC$.

Please improve the financial position of your enterprise before it goes bankrupt.
Enterprise The enterprise game is a separate game within Simcountry but it is frequently played in combination with being a president of a country. An enterprise can build or acquire many corporations in many countries. These corporations are owned by an enterprise player of the game who may also play president but not necessarily so. An enterprise can become a major economic force and grow fast to become a winner in the game. Enterprises trade with countries, can setup strategic reserves and play the market and can deliver good to others when products are scarce and support countries of their choice.
Enterprise Controlled Public Corporations Enterprise controlled public corporations are public corporations where the largest share holder (which is not an investment fund) is the enterprise. The largest share holder does not have to hold a majority of the shares. If the enterprise holds 51% of the shares, it is obviously the largest share holder but it may also hold 10% of the shares and if none of the other share holders have more that 10%, it remains the largest. It is possible that one of the other shareholders will buy more shares and have more than 10%. If this shareholder is another enterprise, the corporation will remain enterprise controlled private corporation and control will pass to the enterprise that holds these shares. In case that an investment funds is the major shareholder, control will remain with the largest shareholder which in not an investment fund. Investment funds can be large shareholders but they never control corporations. Public corporations can achieve higher quality and efficiency than state and private corporations. Public corporations where the largest share holder has less than 25% of the shares, can achieve even much higher quality and efficiency and can become very profitable.
Enterprise Name No description available yet
Enterprise Productivity Index This is the average of productivity in the enterprise corporations. Productivity depends on the welfare index in the country and mainly on the average salary levels. Productivity can increase above 100% if salaries are high but extremely high salary levels are likely to increase the cost more than can be compensated by higher production levels.
The higher the quality of the products of the corporations, the higher the break even point between salaries and production levels will be.
Enterprise Quality Index This is the average quality level of the corporations in the enterprise. The base level is 100 and it can increase with the quality upgrading of corporations.
Higher quality products will be sold for a higher price and increasing product quality is essential for the success of the corporations.
entKickoutDebt The CEO failed to limit the enterprise's debt to a reasonable level.

Estimated Market Value in Gold Coins This is an estimate of the value of the corporation in gold coins. The value depends on the estimated market value in SC dollars and takes the exchange rate of SC dollars and gold coins into account.
Estimated Production This Month This is an estimate of the production level of the corporation for this month. It is a number between 0 and 100%. 100% means that the corporation produces at its full capacity. Corporations always try to produce at high levels but they need raw materials that may not be available and they need many workers with differing skills and education levels and these may not be available in the country in the numbers that are needed in all corporations.
Estimated use of Materials This is an estimate of the total of raw materials that are used by your corporations this month. The amount may change with changes in the number of corporations in your country but also when these corporations change the amount of products they produce due to shortages of raw materials or workers.

Executive Education Priority This is the education priority for Executives. A number between 5 and 15 will be sufficient in most cases. If you experience shortages, priorities can be increased for some time. The number of executives will remain quite low and having several hundreds or up to two thousands unemployed executives, removes any chance of shortages. Fast upgrading of many corporations can increase the need for executives quite quickly.
Executives Each corporation has several executives who are running the corporation. Executive and high tech executive, are the highest managerial positions in Simcountry.
Expected Profit Real Month This is the amount of money the country is expected to earn in a real life month. The amount is based on the expected profit for the whole game year. One game year is 4 real days so the game year amount is multiplied by 7.5 to get an estimate real month profit.
Expected Profit Real Month in GC This is a further computation of the expected profit for a real month. The amount in game money is divided by the current exchange rate for gold coins in your world and results in a number of gold coins.
Expected Profit this Game Year This is the amount of money the country is expected to earn in this game year. The amount is based on the current profit or loss in the country and it is extrapolated to the whole game year.

Factory Units When you decide to build a new corporation, it will result in the build-up of a production plant. A production plant is different for different products but it is always needed for a new factory. If you do not have any production plants, the new corporation will be constructed and a production plant will be purchased on the market. Production plants are delivered by corporations that are specialized in building them. You may even help the process by ordering a production plant in advance. You may also decide to build a corporation that builds production plants.

Members of federations should realize that they can lose many of their aircraft during such military support operations and use thousands of missiles at a large cost. There are rules that govern the federations and all members must agree. Some issues are decided by voting. Any user can start a new federation and invite friends to join. Joining federations is always by invitation.

Fighting Level The fighting level is also called the war level of the country (empire). It is an indicator of the capabilities of the player. To get to higher war levels, you must fight wars of increasing complexity against computer controlled countries.
Finance Index This is one of the main indexes. It represents your financial status and the higher it is the better. The index depends on the income and cost your country has now and in the past (game) year.
Financial Index The financial index is a measure of how good a country's finance is. It will be high if the country's income is higher than it's expenses. It will not change because of one month result but if good results continue over time, the financial index will improve. Low financial index will influence the score of the country and a financial index lower than 40, will block the capability of the country to purchase offensive and strategic weapons. Defensive weapons are not affected.
Financial Services This is the cost paid if the total of cash holdings run above some fixed number. It should be seen as banking costs when cash holdings are too high.
Find Contracts on Common Market This option will look at all the contracts that are offered on the common market only and sign contracts for all corporations that requested them. It will also sign local market contracts for consumption by the population if this is requested. It will not look for contracts on the local market.

Fixed Price When you purchase products or selling them against Fixed price, it is up to you to decide what price you want to receive or want to pay for the products. This may or may not take place. If there are other products available at a lower price, your products will not be sold. If you are buying and you offer a fixed price that is too low, you may wait a long time and the products will not be delivered. You may also specify a percentage of change for every month your order or offer is waiting. This means for example, that if you specify 3%, the price you offer will increase automatically by 3% every month until it is high enough for the order to be honoured.
Fixed Property Cost The fixed property cost is a stationary cost that includes things like rent for the building. This cost will not fluctuate, thus making it very hard for corps that hire less than the full 100% to keep afloat
