Civil Disorder is a state of near anarchy in a city, in which the city essentially freezes and shuts down:

  • Production ceases
  • No revenue comes in from commerce
  • No excess food is stored.

Prolonged periods of civil disorder can lead to:

  • Destruction of existing city improvements or even sabotage to ongoing projects by angry mobs.
  • Defection of the city to a nearby rival civilization with a strong culture.
  • An overthrow of your government and descent of your empire into anarchy.

Civil disorder erupts when a city has more unhappy than happy citizens. The only remedy is to improve the mood of the people in the city.
