My total income is 5200 and my total upkeep is 1660...

but corruption is 3000 and its going to raise...!

i read that "i can counteract corruption by having high loyality and keeping regions developed"

i have the most loyality that i can have! 100%

but i dont know what it means that keep regions developed

i have 1044 income from improvements and its max is 1153!

so the question is:

how can i counteract corruption costs!?
