You will act as mayor of your city. As mayor, your ability to keep up with your citizens needs and protect the environment has an impact on your approval rating amongst your people.


Mayor Rating

This rating, currently located at the very bottom of your city's page between your Money and your Environment rating, plays a significant role in the formula for determining net income.

Daily income = CitizensDailyIncome * TaxRate * MayorRating * Population

The formula for determining your Mayor rating is as follows:

Mayor rating = 82 - EnvironmentModifier - TaxRateModifier + ResourceModifier + ImprovementModifier - UtilityShortageModifier - MilitaryShortageModifier



Environment Modifier - This is the effect that your environment has on the mayor rating formula.

Tax Rate

This is how the chosen tax rate effects the mayoral rating formula:

Tax Rate Modifier
Tax Rate Effect on MR
1-10% 0%
11% -2%
12% -4%
13% -6%
14% -8%
15% -10%
16% -12%
17% -16%
18% -20%
19% -24%
20% -28%

Cranking the tax rate up to 20% doesn't mean you make more money. The mayor rating will go down and that might affect the income more negatively than the increase in the tax rate does positively. To find the best rate, change the rate around and wait exactly a minute, then find our which rate has the highest potential per day.


Resource Modifier - The only resources that have an effect on your mayor rating are wine, which gives you +4% mayor rating.


Improvement Modifier - This accounts for the improvements, such as the Theater or the Stadium, that have been purchased.

Utility Shortage

For each utility (power, garbage, and water) you will receive a mayor rating penalty when the demand outweighs the supply.

Military Shortage

For each branch of service (standard and naval) you will receive a penalty to your mayor rating if you do not have an adequate amount of military for your city's protection.
