[Statistics] The misconception of the Resource Bonus

Day 1,825, 12:34 Published in Portugal Portugal by jotapelx

The misconception of the Resource Bonus


In the last few months I've started to monitor the daily income of a handful of countries,identifying the Number of Bonus regions, the taxes of each country and their population. In August I've started with Portugal, Spain and Canada, in October I've added 36 countries. I've compiled a gdoc with the summary of all countries which is updated daily.

Inside you can see the details of each country.

In many countries there is a logical misconception, that the more bonuses each country has, the better are the revenues. That might have been correct when the market bot was properly working, allowing each country citizen to sell most of their production to the bot, increasing the revenues of the country. Right now, it's almost completely indifferent for the revenues of the country to be wiped or having 100% + 100% bonus, as you can see from the next charts.


Relevant milestones:
Day 1736 - Income Tax from 8% to 1%, Weapons and Food VAT from 15% to 20%
Day 1774 - Mission with Rockets

Average Population: 3 020
Average Income: 13 718,35


Relevant Milestones
Day 1746 - Income Tax from 8% to 14%
Day 1774 - Mission with Rockets

Average Population: 13 376
Average Income: 46 550,69


Relevant milestones:
Day 1745 - Weapons VAT from 3% to 12%
Day 1759 - Food VAT from 10% to 12%
Day 1761 - Income Tax from 10% to 1% and Food VAT from 12% to 17%
Day 1767 - Weapons VAT from 12% to 17%
Day 1774 - Mission with Rockets
Day 1786 - Weapons and Food VAT from 17% to 20%
Day 1802 - Weapons and Food VAT from 20% to 10%

Average Population: 1 560
Average Income: 11 121,45

The charts above are just an example with a bigger timeline.

Let's look to a Country like Brazil:

Relevant milestones:
Day 1774 - Mission with Rockets
Day 1780 - Weapons and Food VAT from 5% to 10%
Day 1800 - Income Tax from 10% to 20% and Weapons VAT from 10% to 1%

Average Population: 12 976
Average Income: 35 911,20

We can compare with Argentina fighting in many fronts against powerful enemies.

Relevant milestones:
Day 1774 - Mission with Rockets

Average Population: 12 807
Average Income: 65 984,90


Relevant Milestones
Day 1774 - Mission with Rockets
Day 1799 - Weapons VAT from 1% to 5%
Day 1800 - War with Hungary
Day 1810 - Income Tax from 15% to 25%

Average Population: 11 594
Average Income: 70 995,32

To round up these charts, I'll put two of the Balkan countries.


Relevant Milestones
Day 1786 - Income Tax from 6% to 1%
Day 1793 - Income Tax from 1% to 10%

Average Population: 14 820
Average Income: 47 449,36

And Croatia

Relevant Milestones
Day 1782 - Food VAT from 25% to 5%
Day 1792 - Income Tax from 10% to 15%
Day 1819 - Food VAT from 5% to 25%

Average Population: 4 152
Average Income: 22 617,55

As you can see from the data above, the relation between Bonus and country Income is not directly related, the numbers point actually more to a relation between the population and the country income. The only real benefit for the country is to their citizens’ production.

This are just a few examples, feel free to dig the data in the gdoc above.

Brutal... "Apenas" confirma com números aquilo que tenho defendido e só provar que o NAP que este governo que assinar com os espanhóis apenas servirá para queimar a imagem pública de Portugal junto dos seus aliados

Excelente artigo.

Espectacular. Myth buster 😃

armbeno Day 1,825, 13:00

It's better to have 0 core regions and active wars then all core regions and no wars. Look at Sweden's tax income. When we fought against Poland our average income was over 10 000. We had all or regions back on day 1822. From that day our average income has been about 5000.

Good article. Voted!

Artigo muito útil e que corrobora a minha opinião desde há algum tempo, de que guerra = desenvolvimento e que a paz e bónus nem sempre são sinónimo de crescimento e recuperação económica.
