The only mistake I see is the missing exclamation mark after the second sentence...

Anyway, can I use the future tense for "Planean irse en una semana" into "Se irán en una semana"?

Also...does this sentence make sense?
"Me han dicho muchas veces que el gobierno es responsable de la economía debilitada a sus gastos excesivos en cuanto al militar y grandes recortes de zukukireans en salario."

Yes. It could to make sence. But anyhow the last phrase (En cuanto a militar). It sound bad.

I can recommend you that you use the follow phrase ( En cuanto a asuntos militares). For me that sentence make more sense than the last phrase.

Yes, that's correct.

That might be: "Me han dicho muchas veces que el gobierno es el responsable por la economía debilitada, debido a sus gastos excesivos en el ámbito militar y los grandes recortes de zukukrieans a/en los salarios."

Yes. If you can help her. Then I guess that you as native Mexican would can help her with your knowledge.

I don't know.

Hiciste una buena decisión en inmigrar a Jagalugue (another non-existing country...) en 2000.

--- Is it better to replace "en" with "cuando"?

Muchos zukukireans se exilian, pero el grupo mayor salió de Zukuki antes de que Castro y (de que) sus ejércitos derrocaran al gobierno.

-- Should "de que" be added after "y"?

Los países como Jagalugue implementaron programas especiales de inmigración para las víctimas que sufrieron a causa del gobierno corrupto (or... sufren el gobierno corrupto).

--- Is it better to use the present tense for "sufrir"?

"Tomaste una buena decisión al emigrar a Jagalugue".

It isn't necessary... it's only a matter of style. It's correct both with "de que" and without it.

And "zukukireans", to make it sound "Spanish", should be "zukukianos" (Singular: zukukiana/zukukiano, plural: zukukianos/zukukianas)

[...] para las víctimas que han sufrido por el gobierno corrupto / por la corrupción del gobierno.

I suggest "han sufrido", to include those who have suffered in the past and those who still do nowadays, because of a corrupt government (/because of the government's corruption).
