    Quick Government and Religion Reference

    Post by Ralend on Sat Dec 27, 2008 1:43 pm

    Government Type - When you first create your nation and select your government type a random government type will be selected for your people’s “desired government.” If your nation's government type is not the same as your people’s desired government then your nation’s population happiness will be negatively affected. How do you know what your people’s desired government type is? The only way to tell is by changing your government type until you see the message “Your people are pleased with this government type.” Of course you can only change your government type once every 3 days.
    The 11 available government types to choose from are as follows:

    * Anarchy - A complete lack of government that usually results in a state of lawlessness and disorder.
    * Capitalist - A government that invests capital in a business (especially a large business).
    * Communist - A theoretical system of social organization and a political movement based on common ownership of the means of production. As a political movement, communism seeks to establish a classless society.
    * Democracy - A form of government where all the state's decisions are exercised directly or indirectly by a majority of its citizenry through a fair elective process.
    * Dictatorship - Government by a single person or group of people who are in no way held responsible to the general population. Their discretion in using the powers and resources of the state is unrestrained by any fixed legal or constitutional rules.
    * Federal Government - A government with strong central powers and usually comprised of a system of government where there is a division of legislation, executive and judicial power between two main levels of governments.
    * Monarchy - Form of government in which political power belongs largely to one ruler, generally called a king or queen, who receives his or her position by claim of divine or inherited right.
    * Republic - A form of government whose head of state is not a monarch but instead is led by people who do not base their political power on any principle beyond the control of the people living in that state or country.
    * Revolutionary Government - A government that is formed on radical and revolutionary governing ideals.
    * Totalitarian State - A form of government that exercises massive, direct control over virtually all the activities of its subjects.
    * Transitional - A transitional government is a temporary ruling organization usually put into place pending the establishment of a permanent government.

    Here's a chart of how the various governments play an effect on the game:





    Religion Selection

    National Religion - When you first create your nation and select your national religion a random religion will be selected for your people’s “desired religion.” If your national religion is not the same as your people’s desired religion then your nation’s population happiness will be negatively affected. How do you know what your people’s desired religion is? The only way to tell is by changing your national religion until you see the message “Your people are pleased with this national religion.” Of course you can only change your national religion once every 3 days. I thought this would be a neat feature to add to the game because it requires nations to experiment with different religions until you find the one that makes your population happy.
    The 15 available religions to choose from are as follows:

    * None - Your nation does not have an official national religion.
    * Mixed - Your nation does not have a defined national religion, but instead a mixed amount of religions throughout your nation.
    * Baha'i Faith - The Baha'i Faith is an emerging global religion founded by Baha'u'llah, a nineteenth-century Iranian exile. Baha'i theology speaks of three interlocking unities: the oneness of God (monotheism); the oneness of his prophets or messengers; and the oneness of humanity (equality, world unity, globalism).
    * Buddhism - The religion based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, known as Buddha. He refuted the idea of man's having an immortal soul and did not preach of any Supreme Deity.
    * Christianity - A monotheistic system of beliefs and practices based on the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus as embodied in the New Testament and emphasizing the role of Jesus as savior.
    * Confucianism - A philosophy of life developed by Confucius. It stressed the proper relationships in society, such as father/son and subject/ruler.
    * Hinduism - The ancient gods (especially the triad of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva) are commonly interpreted as representations of the various aspects of the divine (Brahman). Human beings progress to the ultimate realization of their oneness with Brahman (often called Nirvana) through Reincarnation according to the law of Karma.
    * Islam - The name of the religion that was initiated by Muhammad early in the 7th century and which means surrender to Allah.
    * Jainism - A religion founded by Nataputta, who was a royal clan of the Nata tribe in ancient India at the time of Shakyamuni. Its basic doctrine is non-materialistic atheism.
    * Judaism - A religion developed among the ancient Hebrews and characterized by belief in one transcendent God who has revealed himself to Abraham, Moses, and the Hebrew prophets and by a religious life in accordance with Scriptures and rabbinic traditions.
    * Norse - Nordic religion is a termed used to abbreviate the religion preferably amongst the Germanic tribes living in Nordic countries under pre-Christian period that are supported by archaeology findings and early written materials.
    * Shinto - Japan's indigenous religion, based on the premise that gods inhabit all natural things, both animate and inanimate.
    * Sikhism - The doctrines of a monotheistic religion founded in northern India in the 16th century by Guru Nanak and combining elements of Hinduism and Islam.
    * Taoism - There is no personal god, the closest thing being the Tao, which is a supreme force which underlies change through the passage of time. One is to become free of personal desires, and become attuned to the flow of change.
    * Voodoo - Derived from the ancestor worship and polytheism of primitive West Africa that emphasizes sorcery, spells and conjuring spirits of the dead.

    FYI, correct gov't choice gives a base +2 happiness (monarchy would be +3), I believe it's the same for religion.
