IMPORTANT NOTE
If you are in a roleplay that doesn't use NS stats, please make and use your own stats like your GDP, Average Income/GDP per capita, tax rate, wage gap, etc.

Ok, so you know how we fret over exchange rates between nations? Well, Verisnaut's equation for the dollar may have worked, but after simulating the same conditions in a graph, it seems as if the results are flawed. Here's why:

Assumptions/conditions:
Average Income: 20,000 units
Tax: 25% 0.25
Wage gap: 5

Any GDP (since the gdp is divided by it's place ex. 165 trillion, thus becoming a value in the hundreds) that goes past the 1000 mark will be able to become worth more than the dollar, which isn't possible.

The only way for hundred values and below to become worth more than the dollar is to lower income tax and average income and raise wage gaps.

Whereas Verisnaut's equation shows a nation with 165 trillion units, the average income of about 42,000 units, tax rate of 50%, and a wage gap of 4.3 become worth 3.3 dollars. That's like 1 currency of said nation = $ 0.3.

But the equation works and it's accurate. Though I intend to use it not as a conversion to any currency of any nation, but as a measure of a currency's strength. I intend to call this value

Currency Strength Index (CSI)

Basically, CSI conceptualizes the value of a stable, unchanging currency, and using that currency to exchange with other currencies. Also, think that this index cannot be worth less than another currency. The CSI cannot surpass 1. The index is calculated like this, an improved an more compact version of Verisnaut's equation:

CSI: Currency Strength Index
GDP: GDP values divided by their place value (For ex. 165 trillion/1trillion = 165)
I: Average Income
T: Income Tax
W: Wealth Gap.

Basically, you take your GDP and divide by 1 trillion, 1 billion, or whatever zillion come after the first 1 to 3 values in that number. Then, you take your average income and multiply it by the percentage of your tax rate (18%, not 18). After that, you take the GDP you divided and divide it again by the product of the calculation you did earlier with the income and tax rate. Then, you multiply what comes out of that by your wage gap.

Well, Kianhua, that's great and all but

How do you use this for FOREX?

Good question. How it works is you take one nation's CSI and another nation's CSI and you multiply them by 10 or 100 units (or any value that makes either currency more or equal to 1). That values represent the amount of money you'll be exchanging. Then, you divide both values by each other. It looks like this for you math geniuses.

N^1 = Another nation's CSI
N^2 = Your nation's CSI
M = Amount of money being exchanged (any amount works as long as you follow the equation)

The way you interpret the result is 1 unit of another nation's currency = (conversion rate) units of my currency. If the conversion rate is less than one, your currency is worth more. If the conversion rate is more than one, your currency is worth less.

So, that is the solution to the International Exchange Rate Problem for now. If you have any concerns or any way to improve this concept, tg me.

I'm still an rp officer lmao

and sure it works I guess, just I don't want to encourage the usage of NS stats. People should use their own stats for this.

I'm fighting to minimize the threat of Charity and to make them never grow again.

And OU collapsed, he went back to RP with a new (or revived) account Talixhana, but he never posted in about 13 days.

also how bad is my luck that OU disappears when i come back.

I inherited nothing other than the things I already bought that I am now going to reverse engineer.

I actually don't care about lack of inheritance, just as long as I can blow sh!t up and make rough equivalents of what I bought then I am fine.

Deep underground in one of the Syndicate government's hidden labs:

Elevator doors open and out walk several scientists. On one side are "Lang", "Klopfer", and "Dahmen". And on the other are "Mark", "Eitzen", and "Kant". At the head of both groups is a semi-elderly looking man with a demonic grin etched on his face. He's being briefed by his fellow scientists on some recent experiment. As for who he was he simply went by "Doctor. M". M gave an aura of superiority and narcissism, empty but sadistic look present in his eyes, and his right hand was violently gripping a briefcase he had with him.

8^P This is the part where your sick mind comes up with an experiment they did on a neko and how he's been affected, make sure he's still alive.

Oh, btw in the convoluted lore of my back story, I am descended from Restoration of Eastern Kaiserreich, who is descended from OU, but the people who fled from EK during the templar era who founded me got enslaved by nekos, but then fought some warfare that was a mix of WW1 and also the Middle East with the help of some germanic crime syndicates (hence syndicate, I am not a socialist), in a conflict so brutal that my capital is built over craters that were filled with dead and massacred nekos.

Eventually I was brought back into OU's fold, and then he... collapsed and so now I am with unkle Kampf... but still with my own ambitions.

OOC: My specialty

M approaches an armored bulkhead, where TIB wrath walkers open a blast door for him to pass.
Inside a small, enclosed room, sits a Neko.
A Neko who has been subject to brutal torture and re-education.
Said re-education consisted of a piece of propaganda being shown;
If it was pro-TDS and Empire, the Neko was given a ration pack.
If it was pro-Communist or anti-TDS, the Neko was brutally whipped until its entire back was dripping with blood.
This was continued for 6 years, until now.
Now, Doc M was here, with a briefcase filled with drugs.
Meth, Steroids, and opioids.
All in low quantity, but high quality and density.
All of which would be injected into the Neko, now a soulless husk, simultaneously.
The Neko began convulsing and it's eyes rolled back.
When it stopped having seizures, it simply stayed sitting there, breathing with slow, measured breaths.
Another armored door opened, and a recently captured and "uneducated" Neko was brought in, and with a glint of glee in his eyes, Doc M spoke.
"Kill Him".
The Neko in the chair, now souped up on drugs, broke his restraints and leapt at the subject, brutally beating him into a pulp with his bare, furry fists.
Doc M walked out of the room as the armored doors shut, leaving the Neko to pulverize the Neko-punching bag.
As far as he was concerned, it was a resounding success.
