Governments

After colonizing a second planet the option appears to choose the type of government. Governments can affect what civilization can and can't do, offer bonuses and penalties, ships and cabinet members. Governments' availability depends on the civilization's species, ideology and researched technologies.

  • Bureaucracy: Can't Declare War
  • Crisis: Can only build Military ships
  • Contracts: can hold elections
  • Cryptocurrency: Galactic Market enabled
  • Galactic: No Colony Limit

Commonwealths

Commonwealths are civilizations that are created in-game. Since most forms of government tend to have limits on how many planets they can have before the population starts to get upset, commonwealths can alleviate that unrest. Commonwealths are permanently allied with their parent civilization and provide source of income. They also count towards the influence and tourism income of their parent civilization.
