The Government Center is a research building in Age of Empires where many technologies can be found. It also allows players to build more than one Town Center. The technologies found in the Government Center are needed to develop advanced upgrades that are often essential in winning a game, especially in deathmatches. To build the Government Center, a Market must be built beforehand. Its counterpart in Age of Empires II is the University.
