Every country you trade with is 100,000 automatically (You have me in there) Tax in your nation is 1 per person.. Then theres things like bribes.. Loans etc.

You get income at the end of each year based on tax & trade.

Then there are outgoings, based on military expenditure, tributes etc.

Take the outgoings from the income to give yearly profit/loss, which is added to your treasury (which starts at 0) at the end of each year.

each trade deal, regardless of what resources are traded, gives the two people involved 100,000 gold coins income, unless you negotiate so that one of the people makes more (e.g. +20% in favour of one person would give that person 120,000 a year, while the other person would still be making the base 100,000). This is useful for valuable resources, like gold, parchment, and weapons. There is no limit to trade resources, just try to be realistsic. Your nation may only have a little amount of one resource, but lots of another.

"The first banks were probably the religious temples of the ancient world, and were probably established in the third millennium B.C. Banks probably predated the invention of money. Deposits initially consisted of grain and later other goods including cattle, agricultural implements, and eventually precious metals such as gold, in the form of easy-to-carry compressed plates. Temples and palaces were the safest places to store gold as they were constantly attended and well built. As sacred places, temples presented an extra deterrent to would-be thieves. There are extant records of loans from the second century BC in Babylon that were made by temple priests/monks to merchants."

Essentially, you would go in, deposit x amount of money/goods, and get a record of this. You could use this to go back there and collect your goods again whenever you wanted. even then, they still had what were essentially "network banks" where your record could be traded in for goods many miles fro where you actually deposited it.
