I rarely use puppets so this may be standard behavior; but my puppets don't build military units. Ever. And even as Venice, they don't contribute to World Projects. Is this how they are supposed to work? Obviously I can invest money in buildings and rearrange the build queue (as Venice) but I really wish they would decide to build military units when I am at war and have over a dozen surplus supply (especially when I built the Heroic Epic in a puppet; probably a mistake knowing what I know now).
