[##:##] Command : break
In Empire your sectors are initially sanctuaries. While in sanctuary your people don't eat, work or reproduce. They also can't be attacked.
Break removes the sanctuary protection from your country and forces your people to work for a living. Sanctuaries become capitals, unless the deity set up a different new designation. You can't do any country development commands until you break out of sanctuary.
