Future society represents advanced social engineering models, which can be used very late in the game after extensive research and much experience with social engineering.
- None (basic)
- Cybernetic (more and more implimentation of cybernetic parts)
- Eudaimonic (strifing for great potential and happiness)
- Thought control (completely control your population)
I think you describe Eudaimonic and Cybernetic a little wrong.

The Cybernetic society is base on the idea that AIs will do all the heavy governing and leting the citizens get as mush freedom and time as possible in that process. The citizens them self many or many not be Cybernetic augmented. It up to them.

Eudaimonic Strives for a idea society base that on the idea of the right man on the right job. What one should do is base on what one is skilled in. Is very mush a Utopian idea which also have the same shadows.

In some ways both Eudaimonic and Cybernetic societies are very alike. Both try to achieve as a efficient society at hole. I see problem with both. In Eudaimonic you are at risk of being a part of a machine wiles in Cybernetic you are at risk of being outside the machine.

Now back to the topic  ;)

I think that it would be best if once actions control's how once society evolves. I do not wish to have a simple menu where i can select what type of society i will have. This works for SMAC but that a diffrent type of game which concentrates on empire building at a large scale but spore is more on how to build a society and how it interracts with others.
