Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. With a text editor, edit the singleplayer.script SCRIPT file in the game folder. Look for the line similar to "SINGLEPLAYER_STARTINGRUS*space space space space* 750. Delete the "750" and replace it with four to eight number "9"s. You will get a large amount of Rus. If this value is too large, you will go into debt as it will become a negative value in the game. Also, you have to start the game over to get it to work; it cannot be used with saved games. A pre-modified version of the script can be downloaded here.
