All economic statistics in Erepublik are wrong. They are calculated wrongly as their formulas make no economic sense. The formula for GDP in Erepublik is calculated as follows:

GDP = C + G + L + S

    C: (Cost of creating a company) × (Number of created companies)
    G: the total Gold invested by the general managers from your country in company upgrades
    L: (Cost of buying a license) × (Number of purchased licenses)
    S: the total value of sales made by companies from your country to internal and external market (☉S = Value of sales × RER)

However, it would make more economic sense if it mirrored the RL formula:

GDP = C + I + G + X - M

    C: the total value of products bought by people from your country
    I: (Cost of creating a company) × (Number of created companies) + (Cost of buying a license) × (Number of purchased licenses)
    G: All donations made out of the national treasury
    X: the total value of sales made by companies from your country to foreign countries
    M: the total value of sales made by companies from foreign countries to your country
