Gives us control over the NPCs, call them in a proper way and integrate them into the game itself.
Governments could have the power to set different things for them, ie. between a predefined range they could set their numbers, their consumption and behaviors (going to gym, repairing infrastructure etc. anything really)
Just for example, they could be called clones, governments could"make" and use them as they see fit. For whatever you use it, you benefit from them, however on other areas you get penalties. You get me?
