for a couple of times now i noticed that my income tax earnings drop from one turn to the other dramatically. one turn i had ~ 36bn and the next turn it was less than 25bn O.o also as my overall balance had a slight 500mn surplus, it changed suddenly to a 20bn!!! deficit.(this indicates, that also other tax revenues were shortened). i searched for an explanation but all i found was the GDP increasing, no tax changes whatsoever, no braindead or other threat thing. it is like half of my population was killed or had retired. yeah well i dont have any explanation for this, so please tell me the missing point.
also i have a couple of other questions on my heart which i wont bother with an extra thread:
are the percentages of voters in certain groups fixed or do they vary?
cause ive been wondering why i still have so many damn religious folk sitting around booing while i teach creationism and stuff. of course theyre angry but why is their number not decreasing? i mean arent they re-educated or dont they emmigrate or die out?? same with capitalists. if im building up a social state wouldnt you anticipate to see their numbers decreasing? or is this feature disabled in the first scenaria country?
the firearms restriction law for my share is quite USAish. in other countries there wouldnt be by far so much fuss about it.
ah and what can i do to diminish the fundamentalists-threats (the gun icon top right)? despite kissing their groups ass or reinforcing army or intelligence
i get so many assassinations that my overall population is all the time frightened to no end. annoying.
thanks for your replies!
