The evil alignment has the following advantages:
- Starbase upgrade fees are waived
- Propaganda (typo in game) Center projects make planets less susceptible to rebelling
- Secret Police projects improve a colony's approval rating
- Other civilization's trade routes pay 1bc per turn they spend in an evil civilization's sphere of influence
- Unique technologies include Superior Weapons
- The "Temple of Evil" Galactic Achievements is only available to evil civilizations
Note: The evil alignment is the only alignment that may be specifically affected by a United Planets issue, possibly restricting the number of trade routes any evil civilization may have.
