I'm sorry for my English because I am Polish
The economy is the most important thing in Age of civilization 2, without it you couldn't even build up an army to invade other countries or even defend yourself for bigger threats, in this post ill be showing you how to stabilize a prosperous economy in ANY kind of country.
(Notice that ill be playing as luxembourg in this tutorial)
1 - Taxes, and spending: One notable thing on taxes is that you can be putting it 1 little more to the acceptable tax and still not loose happiness, good to be winning some tips like 3 - 19 which is good for me. Also set every spending at its minimum (in future we may do some changes).
2 - Technology points: A very obvious decision for a better economy, i suggest to you be spending more in (Economy growth and income production, also put some in the rest).
3 - Development: Development is the cherry of the cake talking about economy, the development defines how much less unneployment you have in your nation, with more jobs rising, more gold you will get, all due to yhe investiment on development. So, keep investing alot in development in all provinces ultil it reaches the maximum capacity (defined by technology level).
4 - Buildings: Building Workshops is a pretty good way to be getting more money, they add up to 5% more income producton (in other levels 10% and 15%), Also building librarys is good to have more technology points and level, (more useful to the 2nd and 3rd tips).
5 - REEEE at economy: For last, REEEEEE all your money on economy, expending thousands on it, your economy will explode like a nuclear bomb in some turns.
6 - Other tips: Keep in mind to be upgrading your economy buildings such as the workshop and the library to get more technology points.
After many turns, look what have i done after doing all the tips i gave to you guys. (2731 turns)

How to Make Events?
The country that will receiver the pop-up with the event :T
Trigger are Basically the thing that makes the whole thing work. If the recipient (country) is doing alright with the trigger, than the outcome (result) is going to happen. For exemple: If the trigger is [Civilization Existe: Turkey], If the country Turkey doesn't exists, than the event is not Gonna pop up for the recipient.
Alright, but in this case, Turkey DOES exists, to the trigger is working, than, the event will do the result. Let's say that in this case, the outcome is [Update Relations with Argentina], than, if Turkey exists <trigger>, Turkey is going to update relations with Argentina <outcome/result>.
Here how events work: a trigger makes the outcome work. For exemplo, if the trigger is [Government] that means that if the recipient has the government: (youchoose) the pop-up will appear. For example:
That means that if the trigger is good/working (the trigger is usa being communist) IT is going to play the outcome
I hope you guys understand it. But if you didn't, you Can comment bellow and I Can do a YouTube video maybe
If you're not so pacient on taking diplomacy with everyone and likes war as this game is dedicated, welcome, this post may help you with some war tactics on this game
1 - Let them attack: first of all, if you build a good defense against a weaker and smaller nation (Example: China vs North Korea) Let them attack until their economies are struggled, (this may be noticed if they attack with less troops), then after all the attacks, strike violently against the enemy and win the war with low resistance.
2 - Don't be sieged: NEVER let any enemy siege your army, it may makes it without supplies and weaken army, you may lose alot of troops, that is not glorious and the enemy may push back against you, also do sieges against strong armies of like 2000+ soldiers to weaken the enemy.
3 - Allies: Allies are the cherry of the cake in this game, with allies together both of you can beat a stronger nation (example Camboja and Laos vs Thailand) they also have a nice force that may help you alot in battle, also if your army is completely destroyed, your ally can still hold the positions when you're recovering your army, i've used this tactic alot of times and worked pretty well.
4 - You're never overprepared: Thinking that you're overprepared for any war can be some kind of illusion, (don't think like you can't take luxembourg with 70000 troops, please) this game is a box of surprises that can destroy you some time (example: 3 nations may declare war at you at the same turn), you need to have absolute trust that you're going to take that country.
5 - Have a good economy: To have a good army, you need first to have a very well developed economy, so you can still be stabilized with an enormous army spending, this may help you to recover the army in case of emergencies, if not have a good economy, VERY HIGH CHANCE of your treasure be negative and you lose cause you can't rebuild the army.
6 - Armoury and Supply camps: NEVER forget about these 2 buildings, they ABSOLUTELY are important for your wars:
Armoury: Basically troops become cheaper, very good for builds of enormous armies
Supply Camps: Very important if you're invading a big country (Example: invading russia)
Thank you all for the attention, Hope i helped you alot, if you got any extra tips, comment it, it may help new players to get good at this kinda complicated game.
