A minor population boom has begun in [City]! After an international agreement to lower transit restrictions and encourage movement throughout the UNSA, more people are moving to (the) [world] in search of adventure and opportunity.
A population boom of 5 - 25/min.
Government Shutdown - choice
Unable to reach a compromise, various factions in the UNSA legislature are heading toward a total government shutdown. If it occurs, we expect our economy to take a [-%] hit overnight, but we can spend a Culture Point to broker a compromise ourselves.
What should we do?
A. Shut it Down
B. Broker a Compromise
If you shut the government down, you instantly lose a percentage of your credits.
Civic Duty - choice
It's that time again! Elections are being held throughout the solar system to define the next era of UNSA leadership. The hot topic during this election: [Social Values/Eco-Policy/Economics/Government Structure].
One faction is pro-[-], while the other leans more heavily pro-[-]. Who will you vote for?
A change in your world's Culture based on what you voted for.
In recognition of its increasing economic, scientific, and cultural contributions to the ever-growing tapestry of human society, the UNSA has erected a new plaque in the center of [City] dedicated to the past, present and future citizens of (the) [world].
It doesn't matter if the city is actually big at all. It could be completely empty. As long as it has some population, this event can pop up.
Considered as a bug in some cases.
Culling the Herd - choice
We have captured a spy from the Sons of Hephaestus in our territory, trying to derail our terraforming efforts. While they refuse to accept responsibility for his actions, the Sons leadership are demanding we release him into their custody immediately. Our negotiator believes she can get them to offer compensation for his release, but wants to know what she should demand?
- Technology [Technology]
- Refuse all Offers
- A Culture Point
The Technology option unlocks the technology stated, which could be something that you don't have the normal requirements for. It is possible for this to be a technology you are already researching, and accepting it does not stop the research (you can then safely cancel the research to recover some of the budget). If you refuse, nothing happens.
A geneticist in [City] has discovered a radically effective new means of promoting growth among the local wildlife. Using this technique, the area surrounding [City] is seeing a dramatic increase in biomass!
City produces biomass/minute.
While playing with biospheres, a random organism will get a 20% permanent health boost.
Survival of the Fittest - choice
A protester from the Sons of Hephaestus has been making waves in [City}, spreading a hateful anti-terraforming message. Even more troubling, they seem to be swaying some of the more impressionable people in the city.
We could send an assassin to silence them for [price], and prevent a potential shift in our culture away from our sacred mission. Shall we give the order?
The price to send the assassin is so cheap that the event can be considered "just for fun". If you simply don't pay, your world's culture will shift towards Conservation, spending a culture point in the process; if you don't have a culture point, the population goal for the next culture point will increase, as if a culture point was spent.

Very substantial Revenue boost. Can go above 20.000c/min.
Corporate Acquisition - choice
The Horizon Acquisitions department has identified a promising startup in [City]. They're recommending either investing in the company, which will cost [price] and generate [revenue boost], or a complete purchase of the company entirely, which will cost [price] and generate [revenue boost].
A. 10% investment
B. Pass Altogether
C. Purchase Company
The price for the complete purchase is extremely high, often above 15,000,000, but will give you a huge increase in revenue.
Master of Scale
A brand new state-of-the-art local branch office has been built in [City], creating new jobs in the local economy and granting Horizon employees new opportunities to advance through our organization.
Seemingly no effect.
Picket Line - choice

What should we do?
You only lose the mine, not the entire outpost.
Itty Bitty Living Space

Refuse: Some terraforming stats (water, oxygen, heat, pressure) will increase or decrease. (similar to the effect of Falling Star event)
The Horizon Corporation is planning to patent a life-saving drug that it had previously planned to make freely available. We could buy the rights to it for [price], but if we don't, it could encourage other corporations to follow suit, shifting our culture toward Plutocracy.
-Accept: No changes to your Culture
-Refuse: Your Values will change to be more focused on +5% Wealth rather than a Plutocratic Government. This might be a bug, or just a typo in the pop up.
A Place of Learning
A brand new, state-of-the-art observatory/research lab has been built in [City]! Students and experts alike are already flocking to the site, and we expect it to be a significant part of the local culture of [City].
