A Nation’s Guide to Improvements If you currently own improvements and the improvements you currently own do not follow

this guide (say you don’t have five banks and factories, but you have satellites and barracks) I strongly recommend you decommission your current improvements, and purchase them back accordingly following this list. You’ll be surprised at how much faster you grow. And don’t worry; someone at 5,000 nation strength isn’t going to have 5 barracks either. Unless you’re equipping yourself to be a war-based nation, and you would best know what you’re doing anyway if that’s what you want. So this list wouldn’t be for those people anyway. First, the improvement purchase order, and after that, I’ll post a direct copy/paste of what each improvement does and how much each improvement is. Improvement Purchase Order - 1 Harbor (Get trade circle set up immediately before anything else.) - 1 Foreign Ministry (To start doing tech deals as early as possible, which ALL smaller nations need to be doing.) - 5 Factories (Saves money on the back end to buy all five first.) - 1 Bank - 1 Stadium (These are alternated so that you get happiness bonuses with the stadiums, which is important to establish. They bring in +$6.00 roughly onto avg. gross income per individual per day.) - 1 Bank - 1 Stadium - 1 Bank - 1 Stadium - 1 Bank - 1 Stadium - 1 Bank - 1 Stadium - 2 Clinics - 1 Hospital - 3 Schools - 2 Universities - 2 Schools - 3 Clinics - 5 Police Headquarters - 5 Labor camps (Can labor camp swap if desired. But if you get this far down in the list, just keep them permanently. Unless you still want to swap with intelligence agencies or churches.) - 5 Intelligence Agencies (Stock up on spies after these!) - 5 Churches - 5 Missile Defenses - 5 Satellites - 5 Border Walls - 5 Barracks - 1 Drydock - 1 Shipyard - 2 Naval Academies - 3 Naval Construction Yards
