Update USM II V-9.5
V-9.5 Update Market, Sector tax affect more the importation and sector tax now taxes only what is really traded so if your taxes too high you may pass over the line and you may loose too much trade and starting to losing money...
Now thats open the way for big country like USA and CHINA to play an economic war game.
For example: You play as CHINA and you have put all (services) resources in private sector, You will import large quantity of theses resources from USA and see that USA player start to over taxing theses resources export in that sector for having more money
and you had ask the USA player to lowering taxes and USA still have high taxes.
Then now You can lower or stopping import from USA by raising tax in this sector too !
But if put very high tax for completly stop import theses resources from USA you will see USA losing production from that sector,losing money and GDP but you will also lost money from trade in that sector but no impact for your production,
because your production is under than your consumption and the sector tax not taxing production but trade.

About Uncle Sam Mod :
1- In this MOD you not paying only Interest on your debt, now it's a Debt Service of 10% per year, so this is mean that you pay principal + interest
because the interest paid on your debt is now tie to your interest level
that you fix by yourself for controlling the inflation.
See picture for an example to https://i.imgur.com/liR5lcC.png
Then by the fact that you set your own interest paid on your national debt you are able to paid back your debt without to need any surplus from your budget
For example if you have set your interest level at 2% you will pay 8% in principal on your national debt per years.
(EX1) - If your total National Debt is 1 000 000$, and your budget balance is 0$
Your debt service is 10% of your total Debt per year.
So, it will be 100 000$ .
If your interest level is 2%
You will paid 2% of 1 000 000$ in interest = 20 000$
And you will paid 8% of 1 000 000$ in principal = 80 000$
Total debt at the end of the year (Debt - Principal) 1 000 000$ - 80 000$ = 920 000$
Then without any budget surplus and 0 deficit at the end of the year,
your total Debt will be 920 000$.
(EX2) - You can also be able to reduce your Debt and having deficit in same time for example,
If your total National Debt is 5 000 000$,
Interest level at 3%,
Budget Deficit of 125 000$
Your debt service will be 10% of 5 000 000$ = 500 000$
Interest level 3% of 5 000 000$ = 150 000$
National Budget Deficit = 125 000$
The principal paid on Debt will be, 500 000$ - 150 000$ - 125 000$ = 225 000$
The National Debt will be at the end of the year
Total Debt - Principal
5 000 000$ - 225 000$ = 4 775 000$ -> Debt at the end of the year.
