Population percentages

How could 99.25% of my population be farmers at the same time as 71.83% of my population being retired? This doesn’t make any sense to me. I’m also wondering why would the percentage of retirees go up so high on me, anyways? And why does there seem to be a maximum GDP cap which I cannot get past and generate more revenue without raising taxes?

Do you really play Democracy 1?

Yes. Honestly I actually like Democracy 1 better than Democracy 2. I’ve played the Democracy 2 demo before and I didn’t like it as much.
