Augmented modpack - governments description

AnarchyEdit

Anarchy is simply the absence of any recognizable government. Citizens are disorganized and unproductive, and will spend all income as quickly as possible, rather than paying taxes or conducting research.

  • Buildings and technologies do not require any upkeep.
  • Without Pyramids, each worked tile that gives more than 2 Food, Shield, or Trade will suffer a -1 penalty, unless the city working it is celebrating. (Cities below size 3 will not celebrate.)
  • Each city can support up to 2 units for free; further units each cost 1 shield per turn.
  • Military units do not cause unhappiness even when deployed aggressively.
  • Military units impose martial law. Up to 3 military units inside a city will each force 1 unhappy citizen to become content.
  • You have no control over tax rates. Half of the trade income is simply lost to your economy (less if you have luxury-promoting buildings), and the remainder all goes to luxuries. Conventional corruption increases with distance from the capital (half as fast with knowledge of The Corporation).

Features:

  • If you lose your capital, the base chance of civil war is 99%.
