How do you keep your workers happy and satisfied? Glad you asked. The answer is with Population Infrastructure Projects. Each project fulfills a particular need for your bustling laborers and will keep them in top condition for your ever-expanding exploration into the universe.

That’s when the governor can step in and adjust the infrastructure levels as needed. As a result, the remaining population can keep up with the demands of each project.
