st: monte carlo simulation on panel data

I need help with a Monte Carlo simulation on panel data with 500 observations (the panel is organized by year and country_code). I need to run a regression and then collect fitted values in 1000 runs, so that I have a new dataset of 500,000. The program I wrote only gives me 1000 observations, that is, it is giving me one statistic per run. Can someone please help?

set seed 3213799
gen random=.
gen diversity=.	
tempname sim
postfile `sim' xb using results, replace
quietly {
forvalues i=1/1000 {
replace random=runiform()
replace diversity=median(conc_diversity)+random
regress stddev diversity asia latin_am europe africa_mideast log_gdp_capita log_gdp_capita_1 log_gdp_capita_2 pop_g_rate barro_ipol investment_rate t t_sqrd
predict xb
post `sim' (xb) 
drop xb
postclose `sim'
