Freeciv 2.4.3 governments help

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.

Anarchy offers slightly less corruption than Despotism, but slightly more unhappiness.

Features:

  • Trade production will suffer some losses.
  • Trade losses will increase with distance from capital.
  • Each of your cities will avoid paying 3 Shield upkeep for your units.
  • If you lose your capital, the chance of civil war is 90%.
  • When you have 9 cities, the first unhappy citizen will appear in each city due to civilization size.
  • After the first unhappy citizen due to civilization size, for each 6 additional cities another unhappy citizen will appear.
  • Has unlimited science/gold/luxuries rates.
  • Your units may impose martial law. Each military unit inside a city will force 1 unhappy citizen to become content.
  • 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.)

A Communist government is based on the ideal that all people are equal. All goods are owned by the state, rather than by private citizens. Communism gives a balance between military and commercial styles of government.

RepublicEdit

Under a Republican government, citizens hold an election to select a representative who will govern them; since elected leaders must remain popular to remain in control, citizens are given a greater degree of freedom.
