Government Type

Function and selection

Aside from naming the default Ruler Titles and deciding the first AI message when establishing communications, government types also define which Leader classes will have an increased weight to be drawn during Oligarchic Elections. The rules are not dissimilar from an AI Personality: Certain requirements must be met and every value has a weight - which can be modified by certain Factors - with the highest weighted possible one being ahead.

For example: Holy Tribunal (Oligarchic, Exalted Priesthood Civic) > Theocratic Oligarchy (Oligarchic and Spiritualist) > Plutocratic Oligarchy (Oligarchic Authority).
