I'm not familiar with the algorithms for this site but would it be able to calculate national debt/surplus? Maybe a combination of industry indexes, GDP, taxation and the size of government. Government size is determined by government expenditure.
For taxes it's already calculated on how much money is taken per person with income. The only problem I have is that some nation's have negative taxation like me. Maybe a introduction of corporate tax is needed to balance it out? I think some issues already deal with corporate taxation and/or regulation.
Issue is there are a lot of different ways of calculating that info depending on how much industry government controls. (There are more inputs and outputs between them, the more socialist you get.)
A very easy way of fudging/figuring out a simple government deficit or surplus (not debt or “net reserves” which is the sum of all your deficits and surpluses over time since the founding of your country) is to simply compare the government expenditures quoted on your Government and Economy pages. They are usually off by a slight bit. The value quoted on the Government page should be considered what you “budget”. While the value quoted on the Economy page (you need to multiply Government percent by GDP) should be considered your actual government expenditures. To calculate surplus or deficit:
Government_page – Economy_page = Surplus (when positive) or Deficit (when negative)
I got the joke... it was just incorrect tho.
Then you don't understand what jokes are.

woah now. Who said anything about renewable energy production?? Because that isn't going to skew anything -.-
Why don't we take a look at ranks by TOTAL Energy Production...
Denmark goes from #1 to 66th
Sweden goes from #2 to 24th
Switzerland goes from #3 to 44th
Netherlands goes from #4 to 34th
The top ten in this more fair list is comprised of mostly mixed economies leaning on the Market side of things. And before you say it, no, these nations are socialist, not full bore communist (I say that for the sake of argument, anything that isn't 100% Free Market is Communist to me but moving on...)
The joke was about communism, not socialism. And of course socialists still have power, how else would all the lefties get on their twitters and try to take the guns away or demand we pay for their unprotected sex. Capitalism turns luxuries into necessities while communism turns necessities into luxuries.
Rip yeah I didn't see sustainable but I meant overall energy infrastructure. My mistake. Corrected rebuttal will be posting within 24 hours. Then after that the expansion and cities.
I am so confused. I guess NS has just been keeping track of this stat since Halloween?
Ouch! Wow, and we had one of warmest days this year today on the East Coast.
Sorry we have 80-90 degree weather the last week. Tomorrow is in the "cold" 60's. I think California needs a giant rainstorm or snow. We are like 40% under normal rainfall for the year. This month is our last chance of any significant rain.
Kind of the new normal here. It's a combination of to many people and thinking it's a smart idea to build in parts of a desert. Northern California is our farmland and tends to get more rain. It was bad enough to have the state government to limit when we can water our lawns. Though the standards changed by county. Cities switched to drought resistant plants or more desert plants. We were and still are only allowed to water 3 days a week and only after 6pm to 8am. There is other things like not being able to hose down concrete (usually done to knock down the heat a bit) In the winter people have to water in the dark or early in the morning.
We've had three to four years of droughts and early last rainy season we had 150% or something of our normal snowfall. We tend to use the melted snow as extra water. There has been talks of doing some water diverting from a northern California Delta to pipe some fresh water down further south.
Two hours north of you has literally no snow what so ever...
Looks like the trading cards are getting a massive overhaul. It would be fun for NS to finally have some kind of currency we can exchange.
Hmm, will be interesting to see how it'll be used. I never really thought of using them as currency, but now that you got the idea in my head... :)
Hehe. All sorts of potential.
