What nations don’t start with Despotism


In Freeciv, the description of a nation usually says this:

"…history about nation… Initial government is Despotism."

Are there any nations that don't start with Despotism as their government?

Best Answer

The nations that ship with Freeciv all have Despotism as their default government.

This is referenced in the Nations article:

init_government: This is a single value attribute. A valid value would be one of the global defined governments. This is always Despotism for default rulesets.

You can confirm this by checking the files in nation/data, all of them either omit init_government or set it to Despotism.

However, this value can be overridden in a nation's ruleset file to be whatever that ruleset's creator would like.
