Your village consists in Trade Nations of many buildings. There are several categories of buildings:

Authority BuildingsEdit

There can only be just one Authority Building in a Kingdom.
You start with a very basic Town Hall already built.

As you progress through the Levels you can upgrade the existing one to a new and bigger Authority Building.
Each upgrade supports more houses, allows you to build more advanced buildings and is automatically built over the previous one.

There are 7 different Authority Buildings:


These are the buildings your citizens live in. The smallest house is the Small Cottage and produces one citizen. Larger houses can be built separately, or on top of smaller ones. Each upgrade produces one new citizen. The maximum number of houses you can own increases at various levels. To make the best use of your time and resources, build upgrades separately if you are allowed additional houses. If not, upgrade existing houses
