Happiness Map

Happiness is a measure of how satisfied your population is with their situation. This can be effected by proximity to some buildings, taxes, and the presence, or lack there of, services. Happiness is the driving force behind Density. A high happiness area induces a high demand for this area, which increases the Density.
