Once you have signed up and logged in you will find you have limited resources. The first thing you want to do is to train some workers and explore for more Land. Every worker occupies one acre of Land as his working area and costs one available Population. If the available acres or available population drops to 0 you must Attack or Explore for more Land. Scouts are found in Explore, will find more Land and the next tick you will gain more available population. These can be trained to become soldiers, workers or scouts. The soldiers don't use any acres, but all trained people (including soldiers) will take one available population and require appropriate structure (if military).

NOTE: READ THE MANUAL… It answers many of the questions we get.
