Communitas offers 7 revamped policy trees.
Policies

A view at the revamped social polcies screen.

Design goalsEdit

Policy trees should have a coherent design that provides both short and long term benefits throughout the tree. 

Policy trees should follow the 80/20 design goal that they sometimes offer substantial but narrow benefits in particular policies (such as city state benefits or conquest effects) and also offer policies that we may usually find desirable for any goal (such as happiness bonuses). 

The trees are designed that they no longer "need" to be finished entirely because of changes to the cultural victory but also cannot be easily cherry picked, with very good, broad and flexible picks available further in the tree rather than on an opener. 

Later game trees should feel relatively more powerful than earlier game trees to encourage considering taking their effects and having them in competition with one another instead of taking additional polciies from early game trees

Policies should be generally available more often as they are a fun game feature and players should receive roughly 6 additional policies per game, depending on game performance and intentions.
