You need a high pre-apocalpse population, and for that water seems to be the most important thing. With a farmable atmosphere and 100-200 mm of rainfall I usually see populations between 10 and 100 million. But if you can get rainfall up above 1000 mm I've seen populations in the 1-3 billion range.

Note that this has other effects - the planet will be *covered* in ruins and because it was probably the quadrant capitol you'll be digging up TONS of GR grade military equipment. It basically makes exploring ruins more important than research.

Some ideas:
1. Make it big
2. Make sure the rain is well distributed. 2000mm over 1/4 of the planet do not really help you. You need farmland.
3. High temperatures will avoid freezing on the poles, and also drive the rainfall.

No, players have no direct control over the number or type of major / minor regimes. The closest you can get is "big planet with high population -> more regimes" and "small planet with low population -> fewer regimes".

here's what i've found is best:

Siwa
.4g+
20-40 degrees
as much rain as possible
10% plus water
no atmospheric or other hazards
reduced, good or full alien tissue
land or water life seems to make a difference in whether you get farmers or hunters

once you get that, it's based on the RNG when you're doing the colonization. these settings have generated over 60 zones on a small world for me, but more usually 30-40. the percentage of farmers vs. raiders vs. scavs will determine if it's an actual zone versus non-aligned territory or slavers. the bad thing is you won't know these totals until you get to the screen and you can't change it once it's there, you have to reroll everything.

Wich is exactly the thing I wrote my answer for:

Size gives plenty of room.
Well distributed railfall allows farming, minimizing apokalypse deathtoll and making sure more regimes are viable.

For rain get high wind.
For high wind get > 24 hour rotation.
