Reducing the Shadow Economy

Hello, its everyone's favorite benevolent dictator again.

So I tried to fix Yerushalayim's issues by replicating its rise to glory with Samaria III. Developing nation template, but not a world state this time.

Things have been going good so far, until recently. There is some strange interplay between high-automation and the Employment Reform.

So benefits this time are that Corruption, for some reason, has disappeared. Yet Shadow Economy appears to be very high, despite relatively low taxation. The economy has also been swinging up and down about 15-25% each quarter, which I think can be blamed on the Missiles reform.

So uh, thoughts?

RE: Reducing the Shadow Economy

Once, a player in the German speaking section of the forum asked if anybody could provide a list that ranks all states by their difficulty. I then created such a list, and put Columbia / Developing Countries at the bottom of the list as the hardest template. This was for two reasons.

1.
Developing countries are the least robust of all templates. They are more prone to crashes, due to the underlying mathematical models being sensitive to problems arising from imprecission, as well as overflows.

2.
Despite the name, developing countries (and its citizens) are not poor. Instead, the problem is that the government only has limited control over the country, which reflects in a) high corruption and shadow economy, b) limited state income (tax revenue) and c) its almost non-existent goverment spendings. If the player does not manage to get these problems, b) & c) in particular, under control quickly within the first two to three terms of the players rule, it is virtually impossible to establish a lasting rulership.
(I managed to do so in Dervish, which is currently the oldest developing country in the history of Ars Regendi)

Hmm, so the trick is to not make major changes at the same time as the calculations can swing dramatically. In this case, Missiles essentially doubled my national budget which resulted in the large GDP increases that caused large effects elsewhere.

I can live with that Smile

Well, on the brightside the power of Deflation has absolutely crushed all Project Costs. Looks like Samaria III is building a space elevator for only $10B.

Its gonna be bigly, absolutely gold-plated, no safety concerns whatsoever. Straight to the moon boys!

Edit: RIP Samaria III, I knew thee well. On to Samaria IV!
