Ok, so now my treasury has stopped falling due to high spending I've built up quite a bit of cash for my size, however I'm still one of the poorest countries in the world so I mustn't stop. I think I should start building facilities. For resources I'm definitely going to build one
Uranium Mine, they cost like $850million but I don't really care I've got that much, and thankfully Uranium deposits are in the well developed south so I'm going to get maximum production from it.
I am also going to see if I can afford to build another Research Centre, I think 5 will do for now, that will allow enough to modernise technology and the army, once those are built I'll move onto Land Fabrifications to start building up an army to get a few little bits of land from my smaller neighbours (I was thinking taking on Dijibouti and from there launching an invasion against Eritrea, this way I can begin to encircle Ethiopia which is the regional power). Well at the moment anyway. But these invasions won't really mean anything to my country they are just strategic really and the sort of war which lasts about a week. (For fun try Israel against Lebanon I'm talking that quick)
Also, population is nearing 9 million. But I need it to grow faster really so I can keep an efficient workforce, I'll probably sign Free Flow of Labour Force treaties with some of the poorer neighbours (including Kenya, they have a bigger economy only because of their population, which pobably also makes them an ideal good first target)
Screenshots coming tomorrow!
EDIT: Uranium Mine has been built and has resulted in a negible fall of $12M in the public coffers and it's now rising again. I've sold Agriculture off (I've got a surplus in production even though I am a desert nation
I am also considering an alliance with Saudi Arabia, we're quite good relations because I keep selling them food and in return I can get cheap oil off of them, and long term miltary goals they aren't that important because I'm focussing on taking Africa first.
EDIT II: I decided because of my treasury resisting the expenses of a Uranium Mine to build a Research Centre, big mistake because my treasury is now falling by millions. But it doesn't really matter because I can always issue some bonds and my mine is two thirds done, when that's done I've got $950 per unit coming in (I have no demand for Uranium, although it may power future power stations) it should really boost the economy.
And although my FFOLF (Free Flow of Labour Force) Treaties have slowed the unemployment decrease it is still going down but hopefully when I reach full employment I'll have an explosion of migrant workers and the problem will correct itself, otherwise I won't be able to have a decent army.
