"To that end, there is a whole system of governmental
and military bureaucracy just waiting for you to wave your (virtual)
hand. If you give them a very general order or a broadly defined
high policy, they'll know what wheels to start turning. While you
can certainly go down and turn every screw in the Empire (if that's
your fancy), governing is more about policies, pressure, and influence
than about pushing people aside and just doing it yourself. And
there's no shortage of Big Policy Decisions to take in MOO3."
