Government

From AuroraWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Each empire is ruled by a government of a specific type; the different systems of governance provide different gameplay advantages. You can choose your government type while setting up a new game, and which you can freely switch between while in the game itself.

Government types

There are 38 different types of government. The government type that you choose while setting the game up will determine how many tech points you start with, which can be used either by checking the "Assign starting tech points automatically" option on the create game screen, or they can be used as guidelines when giving yourself research with the SpaceMaster Mode. Your starting government type also effects your starting installation proportions, and government modifiers.
