1.2 Public order

Public order indicates how much the population likes to live in your town. When circumstances get to bad you public order will decline. When you public order reaches zero (0) you population will begin to riot. When riots erupt your army will interfere and break it down, causing casaulties. When your hometown force is too small, the population will damage your town.
