The corporation pays salaries to workers in the country and also pays taxes on its profits. In addition, private corporations pay part of their revenue to the country. Private corporations are beneficial for the country as they create many jobs and high income. Private corporations can upgrade to a higher level than state corporations and as a result, they become more profitable. In addition, private corporations make it possible for the country to rehabilitate people who are disabled and return them into the job market. They also function in stimulating house wives to return to the job market and the result is a higher participation of the population and a far better potential to develop the country even further.

Produced Quality This is the quality of the product that was produced by the corporation in the last month. The quality is between 100 and 260. At 200, the product has a quality which is twice the quality of the original products. If these products are offered at 200% (twice the original price), they will look the same as a product of quality 100 for the price of 100. If offered at 190%, these products will look cheap. In this way, corporations are encouraged to produce at a high quality and try to get very high prices for their products or use the high quality to compete on the market.
Product The name of the product the corporation needs for the production process. All the listed products are needed for this corporation.
Product Availability No description available yet
Product in Stock This is the amount of product that a corporation has in stock. The reason can be that is was not sold yet or it was retained for contracts of retained for any other reason to be sold later.
Product Market Price This is the current market price of the product. The price is used here as a reference to show the offer price in comparison with the current market price.
Product Offered This is the quantity of product that the corporation offered on the market. It represent products that were offered on the market and were not sold yet.
Product Quality This is the average quality of the raw materials the corporation has in stock. Products are available in standard quality 100 or higher. If you upgrade your production process, your quality will increase. If you purchase higher quality products, it will show in this column and it will increase the quality of the products produced by the corporation.
Product Retained Each Month For Contracts If a corporation has private direct contracts with others to deliver products, it must retain some of its produce so it can deliver on it's contracts. The rest of the produce can be offered on the market. Corporations can be set to automatically retain the products they need for all their contracts. Look for the automation page for the setting of this property for all your corporations.
Product Stock This shows how much product is available at the corporation. The products are raw materials that are needed for the production. If the figures are green, it means that there is enough product for the coming month to keep the corporation going. If the figures are in red, there is not enough raw material and there is a danger that the corporation will have to stop production. Most times, product orders have been placed already but were not delivered yet mainly because of shortages. You can replace the orders by higher bids or immediate orders that get priority. In both cases, you will pay more for the products.
Production This column shows the production level in the corporation as a percentage of the full capacity. The production level depends on the availability of raw materials, on the availability of workers in the corporation and on the welfare level of the workers in the corporation. The welfare level depends mainly on their salary. Even with all materials are available and a 100% hiring level, production level may remain lower than 100% if the welfare level of the workers is lower than 100%. Production level can increase higher than 100% if salary levels are very high but will never reach 150 or 200%.
Production Last Month This is the amount of product the corporation produced last month.
Production Level Last Month This is the percentage of production last month. At full production capacity this is 100% or in some cases even a little higher.
Production Plant Each corporation needs a production plant. When you build a new corporation, a production plant is constructed. Some times the production plant is a large factory, some times it is a huge farm with all the equipment needed. You may also set up a corporation that builds construction plants. In a growing world economy, they will be needed.
Production Process Efficiency The production process of a corporation can be upgraded. At the start, the efficiency level is at a standard of 100. You can upgrade the corporation by purchasing upgrade products and increase efficiency. This will result in a smaller number of workers. The number of low level workers will decrease and more high tech and it will be required and more high tech services. The result however is increased efficiency and more profit. The corporation produces cheaper and may decide to lower the price which will make it easier to sell the product.
Production Process Quality A corporation starts with a production process that produces all products at a standard quality of 100. If the corporation is upgraded by 1 point to 101, it will produce better products of quality level 101. The quality level may also increase if the corporation is using higher quality raw materials in the production process. A corporation can decide on what quality raw materials it wants to use.
Products Available This is the available materials to make the product of your choice.
Products Needed These are the materials that are needed to make the product of your choice.

Profit Contributions by State Controlled Corporations This is the percentage of profit that state controlled corporations are paying the country. The amount is not a tax but rather a percentage of the net profit that is transferred to the country. The corporations are owned by the country and with this feature, they transfer some of their cash to the owner.
Profit Last Month This is the amount of money the corporation earned last month. It depends on what it sold and what it paid for salaries, products it needed for the production, interest payments etc.

Profit or Loss This is the total amount of profit or loss (shown as negative number) so far this year. This amount has a direct influence on the available cash in the country. Profit means that cash increases. Loss will reduce the available cash. It also has an effect on the financial index that is important in the total country score.
Profit paid by State Owned Corporations This is the amount of money paid to the government by the state owned corporations. This amount comes on top of taxes paid by all the corporations. State owned corporations pay the government part of their profits. The percentage they pay can be set or changed by the president.
Profit Payments It is possible to set the level of profit payments for all the corporations you own. Profit payments are in fact dividends that are paid by the corporations to their owners if they are profitable. Profit payments will only take place if the corporation is free of debt and its cash level is sufficient to allow the purchase of raw materials and payment of salaries. In public corporations, the amount of profit payments is divided between the share owners and each receives equal amount per share he/she owns.
Propose Contract Hyou can fill here in the name of the country you want to contract with.

Public Offering A corporation can offer its shares to the public, selling them on the stock market. The first time this is taking place is called IPO or Initial Public Offering. After the IPO, the corporation shares are for the first time, traded on the stock market. A public shares offering can be done by offering new shares to the public or by selling some of the existing shares on the market. When new shares are sold, the corporation receives the proceeds of the sale. When existing shares are sold, the current owners of these shares receive the proceeds from the sale.

Quality of Supplies This is the quality of supplies ordered by the country. You can easily control the quality by entering the required quality on the quality page in the trade menu.
Quality of the Product This is the quality of the products produced by the corporation. Many corporations quality is 100 which is the standard in the market. It is however possible to invest more in the corporation and increase the quality level. Higher quality products are easier to sell. They can be sold even if their price is higher. Example: If the quality of a product is 150 this is 50% higher than most products. It can be sold for 30% higher price and will be considered 20% cheaper than the standard price at quality 100.
Quality of your Production Process This is the quality of the production process. It shows what the corporation production process does to product quality. The quality of the products depends on the quality of the raw materials used and the quality of the production process. If the average quality of the raw materials is 100 and the corporation's quality index is 110, then the produced product will have a 110 quality. If the raw materials average quality is 102, the output quality will be about 2% better. So both the raw materials and the quality of the production process influence the quality of the produced products.

Rail Network Size This is the total length of your rail road system in the country.
Railroad Index The railroad index is one of the three components of the transportation index. The railroad index depends on the total length of railroads in the country and the length of railroads needed. If the length needed is equal to the length of the existing railroads, the railroad index will move gradually to 100.
The transportation index tends to move in the direction of the lower of the three partial indexes: the road index, the railroad index and the water treatment index.
It does not make sense to increase only one of the three components because the transportation index will remain similar to the lowest of the three.

Increasing the railroad index is easy: just build new railroads and the index will increase.
Raise Cash Level of Corporation This field is used to specify the required cash level in the corporations. It is done for all the corporations at once and is a way to solve any possible cash requirements by corporations. If the required level is lower than the cash in any corporation, that corporation will not receive any cash injections. The function is one of many that are intended to simplify the management of corporations.
Rank This number shows where you are on the world list. If your are number 1, you are on top of the list. The second number, with + or - sign, shows where you where before. So if your first number (rank) is 5 and the second number is +1 it means that previously you where number 6 and you went up one place.
Raw Materials Purchased from Local Corporations This is the cost of the purchase of raw materials from corporations in the country itself. Purchasing of raw materials from your own corporations is mostly done if the corporations have large quantities of raw materials that they do not need. The materials are added to the stock of the country and are used as a strategic reserve. The materials can be sold back on the market or to other corporations in the country that may need them to prevent shortages if there are shortages of these materials on the world market.
Raw Materials Purchased from own Corporations This is the amount of money paid to corporations that are controlled by the enterprise, for materials that were sold by these corporations to the enterprise.

If a corporation is successful and makes good profits, salary levels will increase. If the corporation does not sell enough products and makes losses, average salary levels will go down. Players can stop automatic salary changes and set salaries to their own choice.

The sale strategy is important because it has a major influence on your capacity to sell the products that are produced by your corporations and receive a reasonable price.
