morale always seems to be things like x/13 = sad with x changing from time to time ... what's the x based on & how do I fix it in the xml's?
x = total Morale for the planet. Approval = Morale / Population. If you hover your mouse over the Approval rating for your planet, you can see this.
The higher your pop, the more Morale you need to produce to keep the Yor "happy". So you need approval buildings and/or starbase modules. For my Yor, I always get Supportive Population and then usually try to build a malevolent Intimidation Center adjacent to an Entertainment Center. When pop gets even higher, then another Entertainment Center and especially the Promethion Pleasure Park help a lot.
