[005b] Black Market: Raise cap, fix scaling, reweightIMPLEMENTED


Proposed Change: (1) Increase maximum recordable size of Black Market by losing one significant digit of precision. Most nations will show a very minor difference due to rounding; nations with current Black Market sizes of 9,999,999,990,000,000, may show large increases as they are able to display their true scores. (2) Correct a mathematical error causing some nations with Black Markets that are a small percentage of their total GDP to exhibit opposite-than-expected results under certain conditions. Those nations can show a fairly large change in percentage terms (around -50%) although the effect in absolute terms is fairly small. (3) Increase the importance of Corruption, Law & Order funding, and Economic Freedom; decrease the importance of Political Freedom.
