How can consumption tax be useful on a good which is not being sold?



  • I noticed in my market tab that there is a demand for luxury clothes, although there are no sell orders. From this I conclude that this good is not being sold (is this wrong?).

    It is still possible to set a consumption tax on the good, which has effect and improves my budget.

    This does not make sense to me. If no goods are being sold/consumed, a tax should have no effect on the budget.

    Either I misunderstood some of these mechanics, or this is poorly implemented in the game. Which is the case? If anyone understands the details, please explain.

  • Yes, goods are being sold: enter image description here

    Yes, consumption taxes are being paid: enter image description here

    From where the goods come from?

    Government officials can't answer that. That is the reason why there are no sell orders in the market window.

    These are to the player imagination: black market, smuggling, second-hand market.
