* '''Initial border status''' – This new policy controls the default border status an empire has towards other empires. An open approach means that ones' borders can be traversed without the need of an open borders agreement and a closed approach means it would need one.
* '''Robotic workers policy refinement''' – This new policy
is dictates whether robotic pops should exist or not. Outlawing robotic workers will dismantle all robots within an empire. The currently existing [[Policies#Artificial_Intelligence|artificial intelligence]] one is changed and it now determines if mechanoids can have sentience or not (outlawed) and if they should be enslaved (servitude) or given freedom (citizen rights).
