Yes, but shouldn't income tax also be included in some way? For example, if
you get 50 gold from working, the unit working only gets 45 gold automatically
(assuming a 10% tax). It would be hard to enforce in the current game
mechanics how much money people would owe in income taxes, considering you
currently can't tell how much they're making.
