Note: A huge chunk of credit for the creation of this forum goes to Talis, Theo, and various others from Warping Empires and Warring Fronts.

Empire Size

The size of an empire indicates how large its territory and influence is. More concretely, it determines the number of regions an empire controls. A large empire will have a larger industry and army, but will also be more spread out, more vulnerable, and more likely to make enemies. Note that the size of an empire has little effect on its population; a small empire can be densely populated, while a large one can be spread thin.

Fledgling:
A Fledgling empire is one that is just starting to assert it control in the world, or which has decayed to the point that it only controls a very tiny area. Fledgling empires have a single region. With such a small amount of territory it is easy for a fledgling empire to watch and defend its borders, but its size also means that these empires have limited industry.

Modest:
An empire of this size is big enough to be command considerable industrial output. It now has between two and four regions. With an additional industrialized region comes a great increase in production capabilities. However, two industrial regions also means twice as much vulnerability.

Massive:
A massive empire has spread its influence over an impressive amount of land. It has up to six regions. Massive empires control a considerable amount of space, and often have difficulty protecting the full extent of their territory.

Population:

Population indicates the number of citizens living within an empire. It is unrelated to empire size; a small empire can be packed to the brim, while a large one can be thinly spread. Population determines two things: The size of an empire's military, and its rate of population growth. Large populations will have slower population growth, while smaller empires will have faster population growth. You can start with a population anywhere between 5 million to 60 million, but numbers beyond 60 million can only be achieved through population growth. Likewise, populations under 5 million can only be achieved through massive casualties.

Population growth reflects both the birthrate and the rate of maturation, so in a given time period a thousand citizens may be born, and a thousand will also come of age.

Populations between 5 million and 15 million have a High birthrate :
- Increase of 4 million per week

Populations between 20 million and 40 million have a Modest birthrate :
- Increase of 2 million per week

Populations between 40 million and 60 million have a low birthrate :
-Increase of 1 million per week

Populations under 20 billion will still receive 4 billion per week, while populations over 100 billion will maintain 1 billion per week.

Population Growth

Your population is recounted every week like this:

Old Population + Population Growth = New Population

So if the original population is 40 million, then it would look like this:
40 million + 4 million = 44 million

The empire's new population would be 44 million.

Every week when these increases are calculated you will receive a Private Message telling you your new population, as well as the number of military personnel available for assignment.

Manpower
Manpower is the pool of citizens and personnel an empire can draw upon to field its army. Manpower is a fraction of an Empire's total population. By default, each empire gains 10 manpower per 1 million citizens, but traits like Conscript Army or Civil Liberties can change this ratio.

It's the Economy, Stupid!:
Income is a measurement of how much money your Empire earns in a given period. Every week your government will receive more Income, which can then be spent on soldiers, constructs, diplomacy and other projects. Players can also save up income to spend later.

To determine how high your Empire's kingdom is, look at your regions and population. Each region's Income is determined by its wealth rating, and can be as low as 10 or as high as 100. The second factor is your population. For every million citizens, one Income point is generated.

Resources
Resources are static elements present in certain regions that provide advantages to the empire that controls that region. There are three resources, and each resource has its own uses.

Oil - Oil is used to recruit mechanized units such as tanks, warships, and mechanized infantry. Each Empire starts with an income of 1 Oil per turn, and can improve its income by capturing regions with oil resources. Building an Oil Refinery in a region with an oil resource will increase the amount of oil generated.

Agriculture - The second resource is agriculture. Agriculture nodes boost population growth and happiness, allowing you to more quickly regain manpower. Industrialized Farming can further increase the yield of agriculture nodes.

Steel - Steel is used primarily to recruit warships, but also for some land units such as tanks. Each Empire produces 1 steel per turn, and can improve its income by capturing regions with Steel resources. Building Factories can improve a region's steel income.

Luxuries - The final resource is luxury nodes, which mainly consists of 'luxury items' that are produced within your Empire. Luxuries can range from fine cars to valuable spices. Their presence boosts the wealth of the region by 2 points, giving said region a higher Income yield.

Starting Resources
Your empire begins with a sum of Steel and Oil equivalent to your population in millions. For example, an empire with 40 million people will have 40 points total of combined steel and oil. You may distribute the steel and oil as you wish for starting purposes. These resources may be used to recruit your starting military units.

Recruited military units do not require an IP expenditure, but will require maintenance later and consume manpower.

The Capital
As your empire's administrative and economic center, your capital is your most important region. Your capital region gains +2 in its Wealth, Public Approval, and Security, making it more prosperous and happier than other regions. Losing your capital also incurs significant penalties, so choosing where to place it can be a crucial decision.

Forms of Government:

Constitutional Monarchy-
In this form of government, the Monarch exists as the head of state within the parameters of the constitution. Generally, a constitutional monarchy has been stripped of most of its powers and serves as more of a figurehead. While the real politics of the nation are conducted in a Parliamentarian system. However, there have been cases where a constitutional monarch has existed side by side with a Fascist dictator.

--Cultural Monarchies start with

Absolute Monarchy-
In an Absolute Monarchy, all the political power of a state has been vested in one individual as both head of state and government. An absolute monarch wields absolute power over the state and its subject people, in effect his word is law. Though an Absolute Monarchy may have weak or symbolic parliaments, in reality the monarch is quite capable of dissolving these at will. The monarch is the state in this society.

- Absolute Monarchies start with

Dictatorship - Unlike monarchs, dictators don't have legitimacy to back them up; they have to fight tooth and nail to seize power and hold it. This gives them an iron grip on policy, and a uniquely grim worldview. Dictators can always say that they have earned their place in the world.

- Dictatorships start with


Republic - A Republic is a representative government. While other governments might rules by tradition, wealth, or force of arms, the republic rules through the will of the people. Apart from elections, republics can take many forms, from parliamentary to senatorial. Still, representatives will always rule at the whims of political elections.

-Republic's start with

Labor Traits:

Industrialist - The government maintains a policy of subsidizing and supporting major industries, and has been rewarded by a powerful industrial sector.
- Infrastructure Constructs cost 20% less

Draft:
Rather than go through the pesky problem of dealing with labor unions, this nation has instead outlawed them and made it the civic duty of the populace to break their backs for the state. Often with a sharpened bayonet at the ready to give them a swift poke to any whom might protest.
- Empire gains 2 more manpower per million citizens
- Constructs are 10% cheaper
- all regions have -1 Public Approval

Mass Agriculture:
This nation is completely self sufficient in terms of agricultural production, and often serves as a major exporter of food and other products to its neighbors in the region. During times of war, this comes in handy as this nations populace and soldiers will rarely go hungry on home turf and can hardly be starved out by attempts at blockade.
- Industrialized Farming construct costs 20% less
- Increases population by 500,000 per update

Labor Unions:
Generally found in democracies and other free societies, this country has allowed the legalization of labor unions which has been a mixed blessing. The government will have to appease these unions or risk them going on strike, but at the same time labor unions provide the government with much needed support within the middle class community.
- Constructs cost 10% more
- All regions have +1 Public Approval
- Nation begins with Rail Network construct in one region.

Cannot be used with dictatorships

Military-Industrial Complex:
The country's industry and military are in bed together. Industrialists make huge profits selling weapons to the army, which in turn has access to far more resources.
- All military constructs are 10% cheaper
- Empire pays 20% less for military maintenance

Social Traits:

Fiercely Independent:
These people are hard to conquer, every foreign invader that has attempted to impose their will on these people has had their noses bloodied and been pushed out. They will not tolerate being occupied and will take up arms to protect their customs and peoples. Of course, this mean's that it is more difficult for their own government to bend to policies they don't like.
- Conquered regions will form insurgencies against occupying forces.
- Partisan specialist unit costs 50% less
- Chance of insurgents forming against own government if public approval drops below 4.

Economically Savvy:
These people have been conservative in their investments, this slow but steady approach has allowed their economy to prosper with a savvy business mindset.
- Trade agreements provide an additional +1 wealth

Martial Heritage
The empire has a long and distinguished tradition of war and battle. Parents tell stories of glorious wars and conquest to their children, who eagerly await the day they can enlist. Politicians and corporate leaders, aware of the glory and profit of past wars, look for new places to fight. With such an obsession about war and glory, the people are ill-content with the idyllic times of peace.
- Empire gains 4 more manpower per million citizens
- War Fatigue sets in slower amongst the populace

Advant-garde
The empire's culture is flourishing. Masters are creating great works of art and literature which will be treasured for ages. New styles and fashions originate on its worlds. This vibrant culture and growth brings pride to the empire's citizens, and the people of other empires eagerly absorb and imitate it's beautiful culture.
- Empire more easily gains Imperial Reputation
- Empire defaults to Applauded Imperial Reputation

Cosmopolitan - The people here are creatures of the city and town, used to busy streets and bustling markets. Their presence and traffic also provides extra funding for civil construction.
- Civic constructs cost 20% less

Maritine Culture - fathers, sons, and entire families make their living from the sea, feeling more at home in a rickety boat than on solid land. Their naval skill brings them wealth from the waves and can be put to good use by the navy.
- Shipyards cost 25% less Income
- coastal regions gain +1 wealth
- At least half the empire's provinces must border the ocean.

Cult of Personality:
Whether its through brainwashing or a constant stream of propaganda, this leader has built up a massive cult of personality as the leader of the state. This countries populace looks up the leader with almost semi divine status. the main drawback of this policy is that the state has to pour millions each year into maintaining this image.

+2 Public Approval
-Loss of 5% total IP.

Legal Trait:

Secret Police:
The Secret Police have wormed their way into almost every level of society, people can whisper one word to a trusted friend only to find themselves in a prison by dawn the next day. It is easy for a people to disappear in this society and the people have little to say about it, lest they find themselves condemned to a similar fate.
- All regions gain +2 Security
- All regions -1 Public Approval
- If this country is invaded, the intelligence service will be able to give more accurate details than usual on enemy movement, numbers, etc.

Rationing:
Perhaps it's because this nation has suffered through the hardships of war and has learned to make every bullet, every bean, and every piece of scrap metal count. Regardless, through forced rationing the government has managed to pull together more resources for its soldiers.
- Country produces +1 steel and oil per turn
- all regions have -1 public approval

Centralization:
The government of the Empire has centralized itself in the capital, bringing all its agencies and branches together for maximized efficiency and control. This leads to a wealthy and powerful capital, but also makes it the Achilles' heel of the Empire.
- Capital region gains and additional +2 to Public Approval, Security, and Wealth
- All regions lose -5 Public Approval, Security, and Wealth if capital region is taken.

Civil Liberties:
This empire has a strong tradition of civil liberties. Not only that, but people actually know their rights, and the government respects them. This leads to a vibrant and open society where people can do and say what they wish. Culture and happiness thrive under these conditions. On some occasions civil liberties do stop the government from going after legitimate targets.
- All regions gain +1 Public Approval
- All regions suffer -1 to Security
- Cannot be used by a Dictatorship

Imperialism:
An Empire might term it as 'bringing civilization' to a weaker people, but the true reason behind Imperialism is far more insidious. The acquisition of land, wealth, resources, all of which are grinded under the heel of the state. Regardless, this Empire excels at bringing it's conquered people under its control through no doubt a combination of brute force, bribery, and cultural influence.
- Control of recently conquered regions becomes easier in the short term.
- Insurgencies are less effective.
- Empire begins one rank lower in Imperial Reputation

Liberalization:
This Empire has done away with the complex regulations that for so long have constrained the actions of business and instead focused on producing a productive economy, even if some of those regulations were put into effect for good reason. While in good times, this state may prosper it is on a very slippery slope and abuse by officials can become rampant leading to a crisis.
- All regions +2 Wealth
- doubled effects of any events which lower wealth (e.g. breaking a trade agreement results in -2 wealth instead of -1)

Military Traits:

Prestigious Military Academy:
While all nations have military academies where officer cadets are trained to lead new men, this nation has taken that to new heights by recruiting renowned military experts from around the world to train its new corp of officers. The result has lead to the building of a first rate officer, whom can relies on years of tactics and training from multiple perspectives.
- Decreases Logistical Problems
- Allows Army to move one turn faster
- Military units have improved morale

Conscript Army:
The conscript is not a volunteer recruit. He has no choice but to serve, with the threat of imprisonment or death if he doesn't. As a result, a conscript soldier is hardly the most enthusiastic soldier when it comes to fighting but when one dies there are others to replace him, generally many many more.
- Empire gains 15 Manpower per million citizens instead of 10
- All Units have low morale in combat.

New Army:
Rather than a massive force of conscripts, this nation has invested its money into building a small but elite professional force capable of taking on armies several times its own size thanks to its sheer discipline and training. This military has drafted in new innovative tactics to improve its combat performance and on the battlefield it shows.
- Cannot use cavalry brigades
- Empire only generates 6 manpower per million citizens
- All units fight as veteran
*Note: Neither applies to specialist units.

Advanced Espionage:
This nation has managed to perfect its trade craft so well that its tendrils aimed at gathering information reach far beyond its own borders. It's skill as an intelligence agency makes it the envy of the world in terms of its operational capacity and efficiently at getting the most dangerous and risky work done.
- Agents operate in a region as if its security was 1 level lower than it is.
- agents provide +3 security to a region instead of +2

Military Doctrine:
Your empire has emphasized a particular field of the military, pioneering developments in that area to the neglect of other fields. Choose one of the following:

Naval Power - Your Empire has a traditional emphasis on command of the seas. It maintains modern warships with new innovations like radar and advanced armor designs, putting its ships above rival powers.
- All warships fight as Veteran
- Empire starts with a shipyard
+ Marines are 25% cheaper

Combat Status is a mechanic that refers to the state of military units in combat. Many things can influence combat status, including tech abilities, terrain, disposition of enemy forces, and your empire's species and aspects. The status system is a central part of the battle system; combat status determines whether your units fight at full strength, have weakened effectiveness, or are unable to continue fighting. In addition, Combat Status determines whether a unit can be recovered after a battle is over.

There are five status marks that players need to be aware of: BOOSTED, NORMAL, REDUCED, BROKEN, and ANNIHILATED.
-------------------------------------

All units start out as NORMAL, and as such this status is not marked in battle reports. Normal status units are at their optimum and default strength. They are suffering from no problems or issues that might compromise their ability to fight, and will continue to do so unimpeded.

-

If a unit is at BOOSTED status however, it means that some outside is causing an enhancement to their performance. This could be due to a trait or some outside factor such as fighting on home territory. boosted units have higher morale than normal and fight more effectively. If it takes enough casualties, a boosted can fall to normal and then down the rest of the Combat Status scale.
-

REDUCED units are still able to fight in battle, but are weakened and unable to fight with high performance. Thus, they have weakened firepower and defensive capabilities. Reduced units will usually recover if the factor that made them that way is removed, and are, with few exception, always returned to full strength after a battle.

Things that can cause REDUCED status include moderate casualties, moderate morale damage, supply shortages, or compromising situations (such as being suppressed by heavy enemy fire).
-

BROKEN units are so heavily crippled that they are no longer and effective fighting force and are unable to act on any orders given. Once a unit is broken its members are scattered and disorganized, and the unit is no longer considered in the fight. At the end of battle broken units may or may not be recovered depending on aspects and species traits. By default, about half of broken units can be recovered.

Units can be broken through devastating morale damage, large numbers of casualties, total equipment failure and other catastrophic factors.
-

ANNIHILATED units are beyond broken. Their members are not scattered and disorganized because there are none left. This state is rare, and reserved for units that are either utterly destroyed, or if an enemy purposefully targets broken units and destroys them. ANNIHILATED units are never recovered after a battle. Defeating an army to the last unit (without any retreats) annihilates all units in that army.
