Combating Corruption

The offending state is here:

Now, things were going great for the Holy Roman Republic. Taxes were low, bureacracy was eliminated, and there was no crime in the streets. Deer, squirrels, and antelope pranced in the streets of the environmentally conscious nation. The national debt, however, was massive. Something had to be done.

So enters in our dear leader, who eliminates the previous currency, institutes totalitarianism, egalitarian transhumanistic robotics, and many other things. Unfortunately corruption keeps going up.

So... any thoughts about how I fix my distopian-scifi Holy Roman Repub- *gets schwaked over the head* Empire?

RE: Combating Corruption

The ratio of net income to costs of living is very low (and continiously lowering). Your people earn less and less every year. Hence, they willingly accept some "favors" here and there to increase their income. If you want to improve the situation, you have to find a way to increase your peoples income.

In Ars Regendi, there is a negative correlation between rapidly growing populations and economies that can not keep up the pace. (If this is an issue in reality is still controversial, but high population growth in low-income countries can certainly slow their development) You will have to encourage economical growth to compensate for the increasing population, limit population growth itself, or hope that a fair amount of your citizens starts migrating to other countries.
