This article has been verified for the current PC version (2.8) of the game.

Designation represents the production focus on a world and provides a bonus favoring a certain production focuse. It is by default determined by the most common type of Districts or Buildings constructed but can be chosen manually at any point. Capitals have their own unique Designation which cannot be changed. If automation is turned on the world will build buildings favoring the designation's bonus unless the planet has high Crime or Deviancy, in which case it will first focus on tackling these issues.
