    You need essentially 2 things to start a bank: Borrowers - People that want to borrow money from you and are willing to pay you interest on the loan. You need to be able to trust that these people will pay, and/or you need a way to enforce payment. Money - Either your own money or people willing to loan you money at an interest rate that is (at least slightly) lower than what you can extract from your borrowers. Also helpful: A gathering place for borrowers and lenders, such as a discord channel. A storage location (nation or alliance bank) that is reasonably safe from raiding where you can temporarily stash large sums of cash. A trustworthy staff to help you with raising capital, collecting interest, and paying interest. To make your bank successful will require a trustworthy reputation and a lot of work.

    City doesn't generate revenue (powered) bug.

    That was not the case just now when I purchased City 10. New Player Bonus continued to show 20% on the Revenue page (with corresponding Gross Income numbers) after the purchase. It updated to 10% at the next Turn, which was also the next Day, so I'm not sure which triggered it. Also, you can check my Revenue Log which shows that I received the 20% bonus at the midnight (server time) payout, dropping to 10% at the 2:00 AM payout. Here are a few revenue snapshots with approximate server time and status notes at the top:

    City doesn't generate revenue (powered) bug.

    I'm at 9 cities myself, with a similar build-out, and I still think it is the New Player Bonus. As you point out, that's a 10% loss from all cities' gross income. If each one is making $26K, multiplied by the 8 previous cities, that's $208K. 10% of that is $20,800. From my observation, the reduction in New Player Bonus doesn't occur until day change at midnight, server time. Perhaps when you purchased your 8th city you checked the revenue before day change and thus did not see the reduction caused by the loss of the NPB.

    City doesn't generate revenue (powered) bug.

    Have you factored in the loss of New Player Bonus? If you check your Revenue page, you will see it just under National Tax Revenue. At 8 cities it was 30%, now at 9 cities it is 20%. Cities 10 & 11 will feel like even more of a stall, because as the bonus is acting on larger and larger incomes, the loss of 10% will be larger and larger.

    Better Maps

    You may have run into a problem where the map outline you made during creation is not appearing in your map display. I, and I think at least a few others, have run into a similar issue. If you go to Edit your nation and click Edit Nation Map, changes you make now should show up. Additionally, on the Edit Nation page, go to the Continent & Map row and select Map Styling Options. From there you can select both outline and fill color for your Nation Map. You can see a simple example on my nation. I haven't set up a complex border shape, partly because it's a bit finicky, but it can be done.
