Allows construction of forts and tax collectors
Administrative City is an administrative building found in Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom.
The Administrative City is a required building in many of the game missions, as it is required in order to collect taxes from the populace and build a fort. However, the amount of taxes collected by the Tax Office is determined by the state of employment in the Administrative City: if it has full employment, then full taxes will be collected, but if there is a labour shortage in the building, then progressively fewer taxes will be collected.
When diplomatic requests or goods are sent to other cities of the empire, the emissary will depart from the Administrative City if it exists. Otherwise, the emissaries will depart from the first house placed on the map.
