A Domestic Policy is an emphasis in a particular area by your nation. Each Domestic Policy provides a different benefit to your nation, although all of them contribute in reducing some of your expenses. There are 5 different Domestic Policies which, used correctly, can be powerful tools for nation building. As your nation grows and changes, so will your needs, so it is a good idea to reevaluate frequently what Domestic Policy is best for you.
You can change your Domestic Policy at the "Edit" page under the "Nation" heading. You can only do this once every 60 turns (5 days), so be careful.
