A job is where Pop.png Pops work to produce resources on planets. Jobs are divided into different strata, with one higher than the other. Most Jobs are created by Districts and Buildings and thus limited in number.

Pops will automatically fill empty Jobs that they are capable of holding and will choose the job that will get the most out of their traits based on a weighting system but priority can be set towards and away from specific Jobs to ensure they are filled before others. New Pops that are more suitable for a Job than the current Pop holding the Job may take the job from it. It is possible to force a re-evaluation of jobs by blocking and then re-enabling the jobs.

Regular empires[edit]

Regular empires have three strata. If a pop takes a job above its stratum it will be promoted to the higher stratum. If there are no available jobs of equal or higher Stratum the pop will become unemployed, slowly demoting in stratum and causing Mod pop happiness.png happiness penalties at most levels of living standards.

Ruler jobs[edit]

For Pop cat ruler.png Ruler jobs new pops will only take the job from a current pop if the new pop's weight is x5 higher.
