I would have called it 'Voluntary Compliance'. However since it has proven the equivalent of an insta-lose in the real world, it's probably not worth implementing.
Wow, I can't believe you're deliberately misinterpreting anarchism as you have. "Voluntary Compliance" is absolutely not how one should describe anarchism, it makes it sound as if there is a leader the people "voluntarily" comply to. Again, I said Mutual Aid, not Voluntary Compliance. I suggest you stop drawing the definition of anarchism from dictionaries or pop culture, and start to refer to actual anarchist thinkers.
This video works a good crash course on anarchism as an ideology:
Also, saying "it has proven the equivalent of an insta-lose", is another gross misinterpretation of anarchist societies, as there still exists several of them throughout the world, many of them in quite a thriving manner.
I am in favour of keeping the Anarchy Government civic as is. Apart from anything else, you draw a distinction between 'anarchy' and 'anarchism', so if you object to the game's definition of 'anarchy', you have yet to say so. We will clarify our understanding of the term as we use it (that is one important function of this 'revising the lore' process), but I hope we keep using the word 'anarchy' the way we are, which I maintain is supported by a semantic consensus, albeit a somewhat fuzzy one.
I never once drew a "distinction between 'anarchy' and 'anarchism'", you imagined that in your head. What I did, was to draw distinction between anarchy and anocracy
, which I actually incorrectly described when I first used it. Anocracy basically describes the transition between two types of government where society is in a state of chaos and ineffectiveness.
In game terms it (perfect willing obedience to a ruler/master) is Despotism, even if there is no coercion. You yourself just pointed out that the presence or absence of coercion/enforcement is a Rule civic issue, irrelevant to the Government category.
Despotism does not mean obedience whether there is coercion or not, it basically just means to describe a society that is ruled by a leader exempt from its laws and constitutions. Historically, most monarchies can be classified as despotic, as the monarch was seen as either a literal deity or someone given permission to rule through a divine mandate.
So I actually suggest renaming Despotism to Despotic Monarchy, and Monarchy to Feudal Monarchy.
