- Overpopulation: Every citizen in a city generates one unhappy face. The bigger the population, the more unhappy everybody is.
- War Weariness: As a war continues, more and more citizens become unhappy about it. This is especially true in cities that you have recently captured from the civilization you're fighting.
- Cultural Inferiority: A city will become unhappy if it is being "culturally dominated" by a nearby foreign city (see Borders).
- Undefended: A city becomes unhappy if you have no military units in that city. The type of unit does not matter, so make sure to have at least one unit in every city.
- Slavery and the Draft: Citizens are unhappy if you work them to death (see the Nationhood civic).
- Emancipation: Citizens become unhappy if other civilizations have adopted the Emancipation civic and you have not. The more civilizations that have adopted emancipation, the more unhappy become the citizens of the remaining holdouts.
