Follow Product Quality This sale strategy is designed to follow the product quality. Corporations can upgrade their production process and their products become better. Their quality is higher and they can fetch a better price on the market. This mean that you will need to increase the requested price from time to time to follow the quality or otherwise your price remains low while the products quality is increasing. Using this sale strategy, you can have you offering price follow the product quality. You can also decide to trail the product quality by a certain percentage. Example: you can decide to put your price at 10 points lower than the quality. If the product quality is 150, you will offer the products at 140. If product quality goes up to 155, you price will automatically go up to 145.
Follow Quality You can make a choice to use the "follow quality" strategy when you offer your products on the market. By clicking the checkbox for each of the corporations (or for all of them at once a the bottom of the corporations page) you choose this strategy for the corporation. Using this strategy you can set the product price to be equal to the product quality plus or less a fixed percentage. That requested price is entered into the field in the "Start" column. If the difference between the start price and quality is for example 12, that difference will remain in place even when the quality of the product is going up or down.

guests Dear Guest
Health Budget Needed This is the amount needed for good healthcare. It is based on the number of hospitals that should be available for the size of the population and the cost of keeping these hospitals running. Obviously, if the money is not available healthcare will be less than optimal. Some hospitals may be converted into war hospitals and special clinics for the disabled. The number of needed hospitals indicates the number of real hospitals, excluding war hospitals and special clinics.
Health Care Budget This is the amount of money reserved for health care for the year. You may spend more or less but it is important to try and budget correctly. A wrong health budget can have negative influence on the health index.
Health Care Contributions This is the amount of money contributed by the population for healthcare. Lower income workers contribute less and the total amount is in most cases not sufficient to pay for the total cost of healthcare.
Health Care Cost This is the current cost of healthcare. It is based on the number of hospitals that are available in the country and on the cost of other materials and services that are needed to keep these hospitals running. Most of the cost is in salaries to the hospital workers and these cost fluctuate with the salaries in the country. As a result, the cost of healthcare can vary even if no new hospitals have been set up and none were closed. The one time cost of building the hospitals is not included in this figure. The number of hospitals includes the war hospitals in the country and all the special clinics for treatment of the disabled.
Health Care Index The health care index is a measure for your health system. It depends only on the number of hospitals your country has and the number it needs. The need for hospitals grows with the population. You need doctors and nurses for more hospitals. Try to increase the index above 80 as quickly as possible.
Health Contributions and Cost The country is paying for the health system in the country. Some of the cost however is paid by the population. The population pays for heath care either directly or by insuring the costs with a health insurance company. The cost government pays is shown and also the contribution paid by the population. The total cost of the health system is in general higher than the contribution by the population.
Health Index The index is a measure of the quality of the health system. If close to 100 it is quite good. It can be lower and it can be much higher than 100. It has influence on the total score but mainly on the death rates in the country and also on the general welfare of the population. High levels of health care are very expensive to maintain and you should be sure that the economy of the country can carry the cost before increasing the system into high levels. Having many hospitals, allows for conversion of some of these hospitals into war hospitals if needed and clinics for the disabled.
Health-care sector setup This feature will gradually build your healthcare system in a balanced way and bring it to an index level of 120.
Hide Corporation List Using this option, you will hide the lists of corporations on some corporate pages that may take a long time to load, specially if you are using a dial up line.

High Level Manager This is the highest management position in corporations, except for the executives. All corporations need High Level Managers and when corporations are upgraded, they need even more.

High Level Worker The are three worker levels in the game. This is the highest. All corporations need them and the numbers grow if corporations upgrade their efficiency.
There are frequent shortages and many presidents, move managers into these positions using the change profession function.
High Level Worker Education Priority High Level Workers do not have any education priority. It is assumed that workers gain quality through experience and in time, go from low level, to medium level and then, many move on to become high level workers. HLW are a certain percentage of the population. If you see large shortages of HLW, you can use the conversion function and change the profession of some workers into HLWs. This could be done if you have too many engineers, or teachers etc.
High School Children This is the group of 12 to 18 years old who enjoy high school education. Some will continue into college or university and become professionals that are needed for a strong economy. Good education is an important factor in the game.
High school Index The high-school index is one of the three components of the Education index. The high-school index depends on the number of high-schools in the country and the number needed. If the number needed is equal to the number available, the high-school index will move gradually to 100.
The education index tends to move in the direction of the lower of the three partial indexes: the school index, the high-school index and the university index.
It does not make sense to increase only one of the three components because the education index will remain similar to the lowest of the three.

Increasing the high-schools index is easy: Build new high-schools but always make sure you have teachers. If you don't have the teachers you need, some high-schools will be closed.

Hospitals This line shows the number of hospitals in your country and also the number that is needed to provide good care.
Many countries achieve better health care and better life for their citizens when they increase the number of hospitals to much higher levels.

In Cash This is the amount the country has in cash at this moment.
Income from Dividend When you own shares of a corporation and the corporation is making a profit, it may decide to pay a dividend to the share owners. The dividend is paid per share and represents part of the profit of the corporation.
Income from Enterprises This is an income source which comes from Enterprise owned corporations. This is not a tax but a percentage of the revenue paid from the corp. to the country it's built in. The more privately owned corps you have the more income you get from these Enterprises.
Income from Selling Corporations This is the amount of money that the enterprise earned from the sale of some of the corporations it owned. A hostile or a friendly bid from another enterprise may result in the corporation being taken over by another party.
Income/Cost for Defensive Weapons and Ammo This is the cost that was paid year to date for the purchase of defensive weapons and ammunition. The cost is a one time expense and is not part of the monthly cost. The cost of maintaining the weapons, both the salaries of the soldiers and officers and the materials they use to maintain the weapons, is part of the regular monthly cost and it will increase as result of the expansion of the defensive army.
Income/Cost for Offensive Weapons and Ammo This is the cost that was paid year to date for the purchase of offensive weapons and ammunition. The cost is a one time expense and is not part of the monthly cost. The cost of maintaining the weapons, both the salaries of the soldiers and officers and the materials they use to maintain the weapons, is part of the regular monthly cost and it will increase as result of the expansion of the offensive army.
Income/Cost for Strategic Weapons and Ammo This is the cost that was paid year to date for the purchase of strategic weapons, missiles and nuclear devices. The cost is a one time expense and is not part of the monthly cost. The cost of maintaining the weapons, both the salaries of the soldiers and officers and the materials they use to maintain the weapons, is part of the regular monthly cost and it will increase as result of the expansion of the strategic army.
Income/Cost of New Loans This is the amount of money the country borrowed this year or gave as loans to others. If new loans are taken, the cash of the country is increased by the amount of the new loans. If loans has been given to others in the current year, then the total cash amount available is reduced by the amount of the loans provided to others.
Income/Cost of old Loans This is the amount of money the country paid to repay old loans this year which reduces the cash available or the amount of money received this year from others, who are paying loans back. It may also be a combination of both.
Income/Cost of Shares Countries as owners of state corporations may sell some of the shares of a corporation and receive the proceeds from such transactions. Income or cost from share transactions by the country is shown here.
Increase Salary Next Month This function can be used to change salaries for all corporations at once. The change is limited to 3% up or down. You can enter a number between -3 and 3 and the salaries will be changed immediately. For larger changes, use the salary target function or return to this function each game month. Individual changes of salaries in each corporation can be entered on this page.
Increasing Social Security Cost If you decide to increase social security payments, than the total cost of social security will increase and may increase substantially if the level is very high. This is a choice that has to do with your view on how good social security payments should be. Better social security level does increase the general welfare in the country and increases the social security index that is directly linked to the payments level.
Industry Salary Index This is the average salary index in the industry. The base index is 100. An index above that level means that salaries in the country are higher which has a positive influence on productivity and production levels in corporations.
Extremely high salary levels cannot be compensated by higher production and will push corporations to losses and even into bankruptcy.
Initial Cost This is the initial cost of setting up the corporations. Setting up a new corporation costs about $E 3 to 9.000.000.000. The number is a measure of the total investment made by the enterprise. It includes the price of upgrading the efficiency of the corporation and the quality of its products.
Intelligence Missions If you want to see the target, its defences and other stationed weapons, you must send out an intelligence mission by long range radar planes. Radar planes may be damaged during such missions and the chance for damage is around 10%. If a radar plane is hit, it will sustain a 25% damage.

Sending out one radar plane, may result in failure. If the plane is damaged it will abort the mission. Sending two radar planes will always deliver results but the chance that one of them will be damaged is 20%. Sending more than 2 radar planes on a mission does not make sense and will only increase the chance that some will be damaged or lost.
Interest The interest rate on the loan for a REAL year
Interest on Outstanding Loans This is the amount of money paid as interest on outstanding loans. This amount depends of course on the total amount of all outstanding loans and the interest percentage paid for these loans. If this amount gets very high, it becomes harder for a country to keep growing its economy. Investing in the economy is however very important and no country can do without large loans.
Interest Paid This is the amount of interest paid on all loans in this period. Interest is paid because loans are outstanding. Reducing the loans will reduce these payments. Loans are not a bad thing for a country if the money is used to build up industry, upgrade corporations, education, health and transport. If the economy can grow fast, it will be able to increase income and both interest and the loans can be paid. Taking large loans to build an army might be necessary sometimes but long term, spending loaned money on weapons will increase the cost with no additional income and the country can bankrupt.
Interest Received This is income from interest paid for loans that the enterprise has given to others. If an enterprise has unused cash, it can better first pay its debt but it is not forced to do so. If more money is available, it can offer loans to others and receive interest income.
International Market The international market is where all products are being offered and purchased except for products that are being sold on contracts. For members of a common market, this is where they offer and purchase all the products they are not able to trade with each other.
