So a bit ago it was less than 1 percent and then it went super high on my rank but it was only 1 percent but now I saw another mega spike, 7.5 PERCENT OF MY ECONOMY WITH SO MUCH MONEY INVESTED...

I still fantasize about someday working Therimenjas down to a small black market. Playing against the black market is actually really hard. Every connection that "usually works" will sometimes fail.

Related suggestion: my black market is about 1.8 times larger than my Economic Output. This doesn't bother me in and of itself. (In-character for the Damalgian Union, a country of space scavengers with no formal economy other than strip-mining random planets for resources, having most economic activity take place off the books makes a lot of sense.) The display of the "Economy" tab is, however, confusing. It shows a GDP of 6.38 quadrillion <currency>, and a pie chart showing the black market making up 63.5% of that. The black market in fact makes up 11.09 quadrillion <currency>, which is indeed 63.5% of 11.09 + 6.38 quadrillion, but is definitely not 63.5% of 6.38 quadrillion. The chart should presumably either make clear somehow that the GDP only consists of legal economic activity (in my case, government and state-owned industry) and the black market is a separate phenomenon, or recalculate the GDP as Economic Output + Black Market, therefore retaining it as a separate, untracked stat from Economic Output. I'm not entirely sure which.
