History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Depending on the nature of the world's government and culture, the infrastructure may be entirely state-controlled, it may be regulated and policed by the government but otherwise commercially operated, or it may be entirely market-driven with little governmental oversight.

It is common for the local government to retain control of certain key aspects of the local infrastructure.
