Your rankings are flawed for the following reasons:
- Quameno have nearly twice the research bonus as Zenox. Comparing the two is not even close
- You sell the Securans short. They do not HAVE to use Paradise government, and without it they are a high-growth race with +50% Happiness which lets you tax them very high, and a trade bonus on top of that
- Kaidan can match the Zenox in research, +20% Racial bonus plus +25% Republic bonus gives +45% Research bonus, humans can get +40%, yet nobody exactly rates them as top tier races
- Haakonish gets +15% Military Ship Size and +1 Intelligence Agent, which are usable by Pirates and are only obtainable by having them as your primary race
Honestly, theres only one Tier 1 race, Quameno. Tier 2 would probably be Gizurean, Ikkuro, Ackdarian, Zenox, and Haakonish. Tier 3 would probably be Kaidan, Human, etc.
Even then Zenox/Quameno are only where they are at because of how obscenely overpowered Technocracy is. If Technocracy gets nerfed, Zenox will likely be reduced to Tier 3 or even worse.
