Government Cost

The cost of government can vary widely from one country to another. There are several factors that can influence it.

The population and the salary levels in the country are an important factor as some of the money is spent as salaries. The price of materials and services paid for by the country and the number of countries in the empire, are also major factors in the cost.

Government cost increases with the number of countries in the empire. In a single country, the cost is low. In empires of up to 5 or 10 countries it is a reasonable percentage of the total cost and in very large empires it is the largest cost factor.

Most empires larger than 20 countries, will find it impossible to pay for. We recommend a limitation of 12 to 15 countries to prevent that high cost. Even with 15 countries, the economy must be very strong for the empire to be able to bear the cost.

Government cost will gradually adjust to the size of the empire and other changes in the country. When an empire grows, the cost of government may take one or two game years to adjust to the new level. The same will happen when the empire is becoming smaller.
