Civics represent the principles of life within an empire and are primarily limited by the authority and ethics an empire possesses. Each empire starts with two civics but the limit can be increased to three civics by researching the Tech galactic administration.png Galactic Administration technology or its equivalent. Civics can be changed every 20 years by reforming the government using 250 Influence.png influence. If at any point a civic's requirements are no longer met due to a change in empire ethics, it will become "dormant" and provide no bonus until it's replaced or its requirements are met again.

Standard civics

Standard civics represent the principles that guide day-to-day life within an empire. They can be picked by any empire that is not considered a Gestalt consciousness.png Gestalt Consciousness or a Auth corporate.png Corporate empire, and are heavily influenced by the empire ethics and authority type.
