As a general note, please recognize that GURPS is not a high resolution model of real-world sociopolitical-economic interactions and does not pretend to be. Keeping this in mind and using GURPS as a way to game in a simplified imagining of the world will prevent many headaches.

This is why I suggested using the internet to just look up statistics. Wikipedia provides more resolution and accuracy than GURPS needs to produce a fun and consistent gaming experience.

Also that the GURPS Space system is meant to provide stats for Star Trek-like monolithic planets, not realistic Earthlike planets. It is no surprise that the system breaks down when you try to make it do something it wasn't ever meant to do.

Customized the formulas. The system is working as intended now.
