City prosperity is increased by the following factors:

  • Religion points - produced by priests working in sacral buildings
  • Luxury points - based on the city income leftover by the tax rate
  • Small to medium cities (up to 30 citizens) gain a bonus to prosperity.

The biggest rise of prosperity can be observed if there is a balance between religion and luxury points.

In the capital city, the king produces an additional 10 points of religion and luxury.

City prosperity is decreased by the following factors:

  • Not enough accommodation in houses
  • Hunger
  • A large number of citizens in the city
  • The kingdom going bankrupt

Additionally, prosperity slowly declines as game time progresses.
