"The tranquil and wise Ai-Mo tribe inhabits the harshest, windiest, and highest mountain range of the square, where they have found inner peace by meditating in the eternal evening light."

-Tribe description

The Ai-Mo tribe is the tenth of the 12 regular tribes in Polytopia. Ai-Mo starts with the Meditation technology.

Ai-Mo is typically considered to be a lower-mid-tier tribe due to its varied resources and practically useless starting technology (Meditation does not unlock any unit, nor does it lead to any resource technologies). However, Ai-Mo can receive an Altar of Peace as early as turn 5.


Ai-Mo has +mountain and --crop.

  • The Instagram post introducing the Ai-Mo tribe

    Instagram: We – the tranquil Ai-Mo tribe are this close to reach Enlightenment and Eternal Peace. This close. There is just one slight problem – all the other tribes. If they could just avoid living on the Square, disturbing our tranquil meditation it would be perfect. If they could just follow our example – drink llama milk, have a mind-melting wild chili from time to time, and focusing on finding inner peace – we would all live in harmony together. If we get 1000 people to follow the wise words of our leader, aimo_tribe on TWITTER we will make our tribe free to purchase for one day. – if you don’t like it, you rest in pieces. And please: Ssshhhh!!!

Because Ai-Mo starts with a technology that is close to Philosophy, they can quickly get mind benders. In addition, they get the Altar of Peace early on, providing a nice boost to one of their cities.

  • In the ambience that plays throughout Ai-Mo lands, a constant, deep, yet calm humming sound; wind blowing through the mountain ranges and the trees; and sorts of distant horns, gongs, and/or bells being played are heard.
