Game Info[]

Normally, Specialists produce the same +1 Unhappiness (Civ5).png Unhappiness per one 20xPopulation5.png Population as does any other 20xPopulation5.png Citizen. This policy halves that. This is equivalent to increasing each Engineer (Civ5).png Specialist's output by +0.5 20xHappiness5.png Happiness.

Civilopedia entry[]

Many political struggles have been concerned with gaining the right to vote (as opposed to the opportunity, an important distinction) in public elections in a democracy. Where universal suffrage exists, the right to vote cannot be restricted by gender, race, belief, wealth and property ownership, or social status. In most western nations, full universal suffrage followed universal male suffrage by one or two decades; in 1893 AD, New Zealand was the first nation to achieve universal suffrage.
