Wonder why it's called "Project Terra"...

What comes to mind is a terraforming game or a space exploration game...
Also the logo is a Mars-like planet. What the actual heck?

The game refers to the planet as Terra.

Terra means earth, so it probably is "project [new] earth".
I know, why does government game refer to the planet it's on?

"On planet Terra there is limited land; the price of the land therefore reflects its availability. Adequate land is important for your population."

No, no. As in why would the name be about the planet itself?

Another fact I've discovered: If you sell a resource on the market, its price ends up being 1.05 times the price you set.

As soon as trade is implemented we need an internal cement network.

You can place orders on the market for any resource but I assume trade might be a constant supply.

I've thought a bit more about the state owned companies. The reason why they always harm your budget is because you effectively pay wages twice - as your only income source from them is profits (where wages are subtracted), and wages are then also listed as expenses in the state budget. Made a post here:

this dude told me that
"Until you have an effective body of laws in place and substantial infrastructure, try to keep population density under 800/sqkm."
so now ihave 550 km of land

lmao
i hate them all

Yeah...

I have a majority of 138 seats and just passed my first law. (Universal Declaration of Human Rights)

And I also brought up the Personal tax rate to 45% and Corporate tax rate to 100%.

Tips:

When Unemployment reaches 15% put corporate tax to 0% then back again to 100% when it decreases below 15%.

Always have Disease Prevalence under 15%.

When you have an election put all tax rates at 0%.

Always have a population density under 1000 people per square km.

Population Happiness is at 50.27% for me. I would suggest that it never go under 35% as people would likely riot.

It will take 34-68 days of saving up money for the project, but it should have good results.
That's the problem with this game, it's too slow.

That's the thing with most micro-transaction games. They make it so slow so that you can but stuff from them.

Of course I know nothing about P. Terra so I'm not sure if it is M-Transact or not.

there is a donate feature that gets you special in-game tokens to buy special things.

Yes, the game is very slow. The only way I know of to speed it up is to buy those tokens and use them. But the more you play the faster the game goes. The most powerful nation makes $100,000,000+ in a day.

The game aims at total realism, considering that I think it's rather fast actually. In a year you can easily more than double your population.

I don't think it's a very good idea to save up for 5 of every building though. From my experience you don't need more than 2-3 clinics, schools, etc. before their effects end up being more of a burden on your budget than contributing to it.

Also, instead of saving up that much, you could progress faster if you spent it as you got it as the first few schools, police stations etc. will increase your income if you recruit the optimal number of people.

I have more than 12 clinics because my DP is stuck...

But if it's stuck, isn't it better to focus on other things then? :P Like laws, I think that many clinics will hardly improve the DP or any other stats and just be a burden on the budget. Do you still get a higher income from employing more nurses?

Not really, no. Also I have 22 clinics and full amount of nurses. I am passing laws that will increase the population's happiness. Am trying to get DP under 15% (at around 15.57%).

Daily income ~$44,000,000

Also I only have 2 MW of energy left so am gonna have to wait until I can buy another oil station.

The cheapest and dirtiest form of power.

Great for ice cap melting.
